So I consider myself a Christian… I think. That’s the problem. I was born and raised a devout Protestant Christian. I’ve read and studied the bible a few times and I even teach Sunday School. I firmly believe in God and my Lord and savior, Jesus Christ. But in my Psychoanalytical Thought class we were discussing quickly the different aspects of different sects of religions (monotheism, polytheism, etc.) and Pantheism seems to really, really, appeal to me. Personally, I believe that:
-Everything happens for a reason.
-Everything in the world is connected, on a sort of spiritual level.
-There is a higher power.
-I believe in meditation, ‘Ohm’, and zen.
-I sort of believe in Nirvana, that through meditation you can reach a higher understanding.
-I strongly believe in fate. Again, everything happens for a reason.
If you haven’t guessed, I do yoga five times a week, for the past three years.
So what religion do you think I am? What religions are considered ‘pantheistic’? I was thinking of Buddhism and Hinduism? Is it possible to be a Christian AND a Buddhist (and not praise Buddha) or Hindu (and not praise the their deity)? And please, super Christians, refrain from your ‘heathen’ comments, I know the bible, quite well actually.
Thanks a ton in advance! 🙂
I also believe strongly that god has created, and is in, everything in the universe.
