How would you define these beliefs?





by all7sins:

I don’t believe in god(s). I do believe every living thing has energy that keeps the world functioning and that energy can be used to heal other living things. I don’t believe in Heaven or Hell, not sure if I believe in reincarnation. Or spirits at all… Part of me thinks when you die, your energy ceases to be. Though part of me thinks the energy may leave something behind.
I don’t think that falls under ‘atheist’ but perhaps it does. Generally I just answer ‘pagan’. Anyone have any suggestions>
You can throw your bible at me all you want, this is still what I believe. Congrats on your two points, and wasted time!

  1. From the first sentence, you are an atheist. You cans till be spiritual, and agnostic (admitting you don’t know for sure), but lacking a belief in deities is the definition of an atheist.
    So, you can call yourself a spiritual agnostic atheist if you want to be more specific.

  2. You fall under the definition of atheist because of your non-beliefs in god/s.
    However, you believe in other things, which is also permitted under the atheist definition, as long as these other things are not gods.

  3. Energy cannot ceased to exist, what it does is move from one state into another.
    You sound like an agnostic.

  4. Get a life and except Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior and find truth and eternal life. All the rest is sinking sand!

  5. atheism is the single position of not believing in gods.
    so you are an atheist.
    as for the other spiritual stuff, that’d just be a subset of atheism.

  6. Atheist… with weird beliefs about energy.
    The world would continue fine without humans or life by the way — as does the vast majority of the rest of the universe.

How to perform Yoga Nidra : Art of Yogi Sleep

Yoga nidra or yogi sleep has been used for thousands of years by yogis. In the Upanishads, there are three states of consciousness: waking, dreaming and deep sleep. Yoga nidra allows an individual to leave the waking state, move past the dreaming state and into deep sleep while remaining awake or conscious during the whole process. In yoga nidra, there are no dreams to explore. Instead, it is a process of emptying. It purifies the deeper aspect of the human mind by exploring deep impressions or samskaras. This is essential as samskaras drive our karma.

Meditation and Labyrinths

Some people confuse labyrinths with mazes, but it's not a maze. It is more of a meditation that is in walking form. Let me explain. The labyrinth has a pathway that you walk in order to reach the center but it goes round and round, back and forth, until you reach the center. The key is to take slow steps and just walk towards the center; taking your time and following your breath.
