Actually just something about a year, I had to find it the hard way, it actually was interesting because it has proven the need of suffering for finding the right way by its own.

Wow! Here’s a first (probably not) but me and Faijer agree on this…..well…..nearly?

I believe in the ‘All’ in that I am part of the All and the All is part of me. To put it another way I am part of everything that exists and everything that exists is part of me?


We can look but do we see and we can listen but do we hear? So what gets in the way?
👂u have to say because I don't do hints👂

Hmm, does that mean you don't know fore sure but a sentience might have set the universe at work and then stepped aside and let natural laws that were placed there by the sentience take over, but since the sentience has stepped out of picture after setting the universe in motion there is no use in debating over whether or not there is a sentience since it would have no effect on our existence? honest question.

I was raised without religion present, and am an aspiring student of Hermeticism now, and I believe in God. I refuse to define God, though.  :wink:
And how!

Yes.

Except I would use the phrase godlike intelligence rather than sentience. Even fish are sentient.

I like to say that I believe in all gods but I follow none of them (aka, yes they all exist in some form, but I don't believe that any of them are The Supreme Creator God etc.).  I was raised Christian, but left.  I have yet to find a religion that actually fits what I believe, and I dislike the institutionalization/dogmatism that often comes along with religion... so I go with "spiritual but not religious".

I believe it's all relevent. A spore can remain inanimate in outer space for a long time before it reaches the right conditions. Purhaps a giant gasric mushroom on a far away planet propelled it's spores beyond the atmosphere as instinct to survive. Hell, I even believe that Santa Claus roots back to Siberian shamanism.If you seek answers you will find them.

My beliefs are much the same as Faijer's or ShadowRain's. I believe that spirits and deities exist in a sense. I have yet to decide if I believe that they exist outside of us, or directly because of us, but I don't see much value in making a distinction there.

I like to call myself an Experimental Agnostic. Whatever that means.  :P

    What's that over there?

I would say that I'm not in a religion, but rather a spiritual group of people trying to achieve something higher, though I suppose that would depend on your definition of a religion. That said, we don't worship any one god (or any one pantheon of gods). Everyone is free to worship who they wish (including not worshipping anything), and are allowed and encouraged to stay in their religion if they were in one when they joined up, providing it's not something that encourages things like law-breaking or mass murder. I myself wasn't in any religion, though I find many major systems of religion interesting.

As for what I believe in...everything. I believe that every god(ess)/angel/demon ever presented in religious texts do exist, ranging from putting different names on the same thing to being very religious specific. As to where they came from, I don't have enough information about metaphysical workings to make an opinion about that. However, I do think that all of them possess the ability to significantly influence our world. I only worship one specific god, though I will not reveal whom that is.
