My View on Religions and Deities

I believe that the whole all gods are one god thing is a Christian ideal. I know lots disagree with this and it’s okay for others to have their own perceptions, but this one is mine:

I believe all deities exist and that all deities of every religion have their own personalities and ways of doing things. I also believe that universal deities exist and they are sometimes more fluid with people. I believe that the god and goddess of the Wiccan religion are real and that they have the ability to shapeshift. I believe other deities like them exist. I believe that, what I would term as universal deities, are some how part of the natural currents of energy and this is why they can change their shape and appearances. Not like part of nature exactly but rather part of a cosmic energy of wherever they come from.

I believe our world intersects with other worlds, other universes, and that these universes are the homes of these different deities. For example, Olympus is a totally different universe than say Yggdrasil. For whatever reason, our world is intersecting not just with them, but many other universes with gods in them and by extension, creating all these different religious beliefs. Now, I know people want this singular belief, but I don’t think it’s that simple. I think that the reason there are so many creation and ending stories is because those are of the universes the gods live in. Each story is different or similar but they don’t belong to the same world.

I think along time ago, people could just easily journey to these other worlds and universes by leaving their body. For many it was easy and others it wasn’t. That’s why people talk about stories of humans just walking into another world, and maybe even perhaps then the spiritual was just more profound too, at least to a degree.

Either way, this is just my personal belief that I know a lot of people disagree with but, it’s just what makes sense to me more than there just being a singular belief or religion out there that claims to be right. I think in some way, all of them are right to a degree. I won’t say someone else is wrong if they disagree, that’s just the way someone views it. This is just my opinion and view about it. Enjoy.

I think the biggest thing about the Lorax is that it teaches kids that trees are important. If we lost all the trees, you know everybody would be paying for Ohare air.

I’m part of this pagan group and while it is directed towards all pagans of all beliefs, I hardly see anyone post about their own personal beliefs. People just say “I’m on the pagan path” and to that I just get frustrated and say “what kind of pagan path?” People aren’t specific and sometimes I’m not even sure if they know what pagan is. It isn’t all just Wicca. Yet, I think when people say pagan they mean Wiccan. Why can’t they just say Wiccan instead of just pagan? I don’t understand this!

#I DON’T THINK YOU UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH I LOVE ZUKO AND HIS CHARACTER ARC

My favourite thing about this, is that he goes back to his father, and holds him accountable for his actions. He’s thought he was in the wrong for years. That it was his fault he lost his honour. To see him come to this understanding that he was a child and his father was the responsible party was amazing.

I can’t even think of any other animated kids shows where the abuser is called out on their abuse as openly and directly as he was in this show. And don’t even start me on the importance of them showing that a male child can be the victim of abuse by a male parent. That’s a demographic that so often gets brushed aside and they get told to “man up” or in this case “act like a Prince”. And Zuko gets to stand up and say “I AM a Prince. You’re the one who was wrong”.

sometimes y’all take the whole “horned god” thing… too far. This is amazing.

For someone with a dick in his ass he looks pretty unfazed. 
I mean, I’m assuming there is a dick attached to those balls.

Not to mention that it looks very large and would probably destroy the insides of any human. I guess they can just take it that well or something Lol. But oh my gods! That design on his leg is exactly what appeared to me in a vision once when working with Freyr. Wtf?!

I was reading in Neolithic Shamanism about how Mani’s (the moon god of heathenry) attention is focused internally during the full moon, which is contradictory to the popular belief of using the full moon energy. The book says however, in the waning three quarter phase, that Mani’s attention is focused outward and at that time, it is the best time to ask for his help. Interesting!
