Religion?
By:
Post # 1
So, I've recently been entertaining the idea of a new religion, one focused on the spiritual needs of modern people and I wanted ideas from a spiritual non-judgmental community like SOM. What would you like to see in such a religion? Open mindedness? Promotion of equality? Emphasis on the value of the individual? Environmental awareness? Any other ideas?

Accept every human as an equal and value people and the earth because they're the things that are most important to everyone's well being and quality of life

Sadly the closet thing there is to a totally equality mainsteam religion is atheism/agnostic because most religions seem to have some resentment towards other people

In religion there is hate, not for all but for some there is.
Buddhism sounds a lot about what you were writing about.

I wouldn't advise following any specific religion because they all have their ups and downs. You shouldn't believe in something just because someone you trust is saying it. You should only believe in what feels right to you. I would advise you look into every religion that interests you and pick out what you feel to be true because in the end, almost every religion is saying the same thing, just in different ways; to help different types of people. If you do this, you can find the most every religion has to offer you and transcend the limitations you would be bound with by picking just one.

I have to agree with Melton...
You should look into Buddhism. There is a lot out there to learn from it.

What I would like to see it containing:

1: Worry about your own spiritual development and not everyone else's.
2: Everyone has their own path. There is no right or wrong. Only right and wrong for a particular person.
3: Every path has an element of the truth, and ALL are worthy of respect.
4: No one path contains the whole truth, as the truth of God, the Universe and Everything (All bow and praise Douglas Adams!) can never be fully comprehended by our level of existence. We can, however, have glimpses of what it may be like.
5: Everyone is working on their growth and spiritual development with the tools and resources they have at the time. Don't jodge others or let your ego get the better of you.
6: You are a part of existence. You are not the sole creator of existence. Everything is conscious on one level or another and has influence over creation. Creation itself is conscious and has more control. It is important to learn how you fit in and how to work with the rest of creation.

I think if you can put that in, you'll be headed in a good direction.

LVX,

Shawn.

The more simplistic the better. The less doctrine/guidelines to follow I believe will lead to a more open-minded religion.

For example. Instead of a list of rules or dogma to live by, instead just make sure your followers know: They are children of the earth, and consequently should treat both her and her children with respect. Going beyond that, we should always help others when we can, to lend a hand in order to mend the wounds humanity has inflicted upon itself.

You don't really need a religion to have good morales. I think that belief is what has chained many to religious teachings. They feel without it, they can't be good people. If I was ever the leader of a religion, I would want my teachings to be similar to Buddha's. He believed everyone had the potential to be as wise as he was, and that was truly open and loving. Kill the ego, feed the soul!

I'd like to say something. I think Religion is just something humans made up or is not completely correct. No religion is correct 100%. And we have no clue what the 'truth' is.

Avylolies, You enjoy watching human slaughter> And you talk like you are not human. Come on man.
And as far as new religion, don't you think we have enough? I see it as another way to spread hate, accept for a few. Just my thoughts. BB
