They are all right! That's the beauty of it.
The reality you create is your reality.
Your belief is your religion.
I have to say this again(I have said it in another thread);

There are six billion people on earth, and there are six billion religions.

I don't believe in a hell, so I won't create a hell for myself at my death.
Is is just some of my religion, I'm sharing.
Peace, Rustic

Perhaps not hiding. Perhaps just hard to perceive amongst the distractions of preachers, rabbis, gurus, televangelists, group prayer, canned prayer, holy books, rituals, services, collection plates, churches, holy cities, holy buildings, holy water, etc. etc. etc. Maybe you just gotta be quiet to feel the spirit that moves through all things.

Actually, JennyO, that was a little inside joking around with Kendall. We have jabbed each other for years in a good natured way.

I know little about Paganism. I was under the impression, though, that Pagans did not believe in God. Am I mistaken?

Look I am not going to tell you again, quit it! Enough of this silly childish nonsense and get back to work! - praying, bowing, giving your money to rich churches, starving, dying, suffering and the rest.

For your sins the Mudcat will be off line for exactly one and a half seconds .....

Some do, Dougie. They just believe in God in a Pagan way.

There's a rabi, and a Catholic priest, and they're all on a boat.
The Ship starts to sink and the Rabi said save yourselves,and screw the children and the Catholic priest says do we have enough time.

Doug R, pagans do believe in god/goddess/great spirit, whatever you like to call it, only not as a separate deity which sits up there in heaven. If you read my previous post, I think it explains it a little bit.

Having been brought up in the Christian church, what I always felt was missing was a sense of connection. God was portrayed as a sort of Spencer Tracy type of figure who looks down at us poor sinners, passing judgment and dispensing crumbs of mercy to those who gave their lives to Him. This just did not feel right to me, because I always believed in the goodness of people. Looking back now, I can see that a lot of the things that Jesus said were misunderstood, and that the Christian Church as I experienced it was not what was intended by one of the great shamans of history.

Once I decided to go with my intuition, things started to fall into place. I feel more in common with some of the old spiritualities, such as the Native American and Australian Aboriginal, who are more at one with their world, and see a great spirit, or energy, running through everything, and us as part of that energy. It is not so much a belief as an inner knowing, once you have experienced it. Being part of that energy, we are able to make a difference with not only our actions, but our thoughts, which also have energy. So we can create what we want.

"I", my higher self has many lifetimes. Jenny is only one of them. It is a continual process of learning and evolution. The whole of the universe is going through this process and I am a part of it. It is hard to say it all in one post, but the main thing is that I feel connected to everything and this knowledge gives me much more love and respect for other beings than I ever had growing up in the christian church.

There is a book by Gary Zukav, called "Seat of the Soul", which says a lot of things better than I can.

Jenny

Thanks, JennyO. I find your views interesting, and appreciate your sharing them with us. I can understand your disillusionment with the church in which you were raised. I had a similar experience when I was young, and left that church when I became an adult and joined one that better suits my needs and beliefs.

Talk about disillusion, I was into 'the word' very heavy when I was young. I was into it so much I wanted to grow up and become a preacher of 'the word'
Then my idea got flattened when a pastor said to me, " You can never be a preacher, there are no women preachers." Now that was disillusion. I probably cryed that night.
But, then I got out of the belief of that religion, and it was almost instant. The word hypocrites shot through me like an arrow.
I turned to other things, like a lot of drugs. I became a wild child. Joined a band, got layed, you know,'wild child' things.
Anyway to get to my point, I think that was the day that saved my belief system. I grew older and developed my spirituality. I remembered my spirit. I remembered who I really am. I created my own.
Perhaps I should look that guy up and thank him!
I know what your saying here JennyO, to explain it all I would have to write a book!
Peace, Rustic
