What do you all think about religion?
Agree... I likeJoseph Campbell a lot, he is a very good mythologist and his writting are wonder.
I liked the way you have explained your experience on the matter. I don't think your wrong with all of the previous stuff you've said... Your truth might be true for others too in a similar way. It doesn't need to be anyone else's truth but it could be similar.
P.S. Your poetry is interesting.
I would say that religion is a very fragile thing to talk about to people since all have their own belief in this matter. I believe that what is more important is how people feel being in a religion. If it is good for them than it is ok, but if you have some doubt about it then it is ok too.
One thing is for sure is that most religion's followers all believe that "their" religion is the "real good one" and is the "thruth". What is good for one is not necessary good for another as we see it is in life. They all claim that "their" religion is the "only way to salvation", and that the other religions are false. Well... this is in a way impossible.
Most religions are the shadow of what they were supposed to be because mankind have changed the original source of all religions. There was a study done on this and this was the conclusion of it. So personaly I do not follow any knowned religions anymore, I'm on a spiritual path and this path is more important than religion because it is one in a way. But it is a free way of doing it. I follow my intuitions and they guide me well. For me God is universal and not chained in a religion. People have changed religion to fit their need of believing the way they choose it to be. And since humankind is imperfect, it is the same with the changes humankind did with the religion.
I do not want to offense anybody here, but we all have the choice to believe what we want. The important thing is how you are and feel in what you do. If you feel good and happy, then it is ok for "you". If you don't feel good or unhappy then it is time you change your way and your path. Simple as that. Why complicate things?
Religion separate people instead of uniting them for the good of humanity. Is that good? Did God wanted separation or unity? Does it make sense that people call God with different names and fight each other for a "name" and for some "human" belief? I don't think so. Just in what is happening with religions we can see very clearly that there is something wrong. There is a growing movement of another more universal way about religion. It is of a more spiritual and universal nature. There is a universal God of love and this is the real truth for me and many others.
I've learned in my life with many spiritual experiences that truth is everywhere as his love and nature. Spiritual vibrations are not only in religions even if you so believe but in many ways God did the universe. It is to us to find them. I can appreciate and feel full of joy to be and live this free with love for all things. Religion is believing something said, spirituality is living and experiencing the beauty of what reality is in all its splendor.
P.S. Again, if your religion is good for you than continue on this path, but let others make their own choices and let them be. We all have our own ways to meet God and they are all good, whatever people say. It is not what people say that is important, it is what God really is.
Is your lifetime finish? You didn't loose anything yet. You're just feeling a possibility that could be what it is. Check with her how she feels about it. To see if she feel the same. If she does then all is real in this lifetime as it was in the other.
I did meet someone like this in this life so I understand that feeling. We were in fact feeling the same about each other all the time. Today I'm not with her anymore but I still love her. In fact she was the only person I told "I love you but cannot live with you". My personal story is different as we were not spiritualy on the same wavelenght and I had to love myself enough to continue to be me and knew I had to do that to do so.
But it is up to you to see what possibility you both have to be happy together on all levels of life. To go well you need to be on the same wavelenght on important paths that both have. If the paths are in the same direction then I would do everything for us to be together. But it is for you to find out by communicating with her. If both is saying the deep of their heart maybe you can meet in a continuing adventure that started in another life. It is for both to decide if both want this to happen or not, without any doubt.
Hard to say, everybody is living their own life to learn to elevate themselves to higher consciousness which can be done in many different ways. I know my path, I don't know yours and hers. I can only tell my own expererience in something similar. But it didn't have the happy ending everyone usualy wish. I'll meet her in another lifetime again probably to continue what we started. It has to do with personal belief about the matter of reincarnation and many have different opinion on this.
Good luck in your search about this...
I fibd your opinion a bit funny. I don't think an empath would need to see horror movies to feel closer to people who might suffer certain phobias or anxieties.
Unless being an empath have many different meaning, or that the empath is very inexperienced, it is something an empath would feel naturaly because it is in their nature to feel others. Horror movies are something showing negativity and we all have this enough in life without putting ouselves in a negative environment just for fun. The problem is more of an uncouncious nature since those who like or even love horror movies have a funny need for suffering or see suffering. But many will find many other reasons to say it's ok to like that kind of movies because their ego is helping them to find excuses for their wrongs so they can feel better continuing looking at negative movies.
I never liked horror movies and never whatch them naturaly. I've read that people who do research uncounsciously suffering as all who likes to be scared. When watching they put themselves in the place of the victims and thus endure some kind of same suffering even if it is only in their mind. You should ask yourself what are the reasons you like this as much. Personaly I prefer uplifthing movies than horror ones. I do feel a lot better. So why do you like to feel bad?
I would say that this is the case of many women I've met. The main reason usualy for that is many time uncounscious for many but not for some others. It is easier for women to control a friendship with a man because they feel more the intention of the man than the ones from women. It is well known that women competition is harder to detect because mostly done underneat the cover I would say. That you are aware of this or not, attraction play a big role in this. As it is a lot easier for a woman to use it toward a man even in frienship. Many women told me so themselves. The difference is that some are not aware of it while some others are not. Also, it is easier usualy for a man to talk to a woman about feeling and deeper conversations regarding the inside while mostly with other men it is more a no no. Knowing more the inside of an individual make him easier to control than the other way around. So usualy women and many who likes to be in control will prefer that sort of relation.
I certainly relate to that... I also was thinking for a very long time I was alone effectively which made me feel I was maybe from somewhere else sort of maily because I never met people like me taht much.
I just realize I was an empath not long ago after reading about it. In fact it did put a word on something I felt for many many years. I knew for those years and more precisely since 1988 (25 years ago) I had some strange and special abilities which came more to light after (I was told) a kundalini opening which changed my entire life forever. Since that time, everything is like amplified 10 times more. I met through the years people who helped me cope with many of this but I had many unanswered questions. It is really strange to see life and all around like in another dimension that always existed but that I couldn't see. So many wonders it is hard to beleive that all is as it is. All that made me understand why so many cannot and will not see any of this. Not until the ego has been transcended or worked on a lot. The ego stop humanity of ascending to higher level of consciousness.
Hi everyone, I'm new here and a little lost about what to do here to start. I'm an empath besides other gifts it seems I have. I feel mostly out of this world a bit with all the things I can feel and see. I often say I see with my feelings. I feel people a lot to the point that it is like if I see their soul. It is like I become aware of so many things about them that it is even hard to find words for.
It is easy for me to exchange with people deeply and I stay usualy far from groups. People tend to come to me many time and then an intimate exchange starts. I don't feel very confortable in groups at all since I feel too many things around. I prefer to be at a certain distance of a group usualy. This way I feel better.
I had the feeling many times that I was not from earth since I feel so different from many I meet. I feel very alone when I'm in need of talking to someone about what I'm going through. Not many can understand things about me. I can help many but not so many can do the same for me if I'm in need of someone to talk to.
At least it is a joy for me to realize that I can bring some good to some people by exchanging with them. I need some friends with who I can exchange on the same level of understanding which is very rare for me to find.
