1 Belief is reality on Wed Jun 15, 2011 9:49 pm

For those of you that believe that your focus determines your reality (though this is a very tough topic to even describe much less express one's opinions about)do you believe that exploiting the majority whose attraction to the religious, spiritual, and supernatural is pervasive should be tried in the name of a better world?

"And just to set the record straight, the core values of the LHP require acknowledgement, respect, or acceptance of Higher Forces, Magical Practice, and Occultism/Esotericism. Without being open to those influences there is no Left Hand Path. Awake!"

You have this knack of changing your posts before I have the time to come back and respond to them. scratch Laughing

This is actually a really hard question to answer, because identifying ones own reasons for doing things honestly is not straightforward. I don't exploit others because I don't want people doing things that aren't authentic. It doesn't serve me. The more true they are to themselves the easier it is for me to decide how close to them I wish to be and how beneficial my exerting any effort at all might be. But I will also be authentically myself, and that self does try people, quite hard sometimes. The closer to me anyone gets the more challenging it can become. Not because I intend it, but because I seem to rattle hypocrisy and contradictions in people, and am brutally honest.

In regards to your question and it's very specific slant towards those who have the range of spiritual or religious beliefs, they are often easier to work to the heart of and blow fantasies out of the water. It's the claimed scientific skeptic who is fearful of anything beyond what they can see and measure who are the tough nuts. People who cling to one end of the spectrum or the other are the ones who prevent the world being what it could be.

The atheists who irritate me the most are the ones that have everything in common with the "faithful" except a belief in "God, Goddess, or gods." They assimilate real established and older cultures yet somehow think they are more enlightened.

"It's relatively common to have a character who openly acknowledges the existence of beings of great power, but refuses to accept their divinity (either because he believes them to be sufficiently advanced aliens using technological trickery, or because he differentiates between a "real" god and a supernatural being that is merely very powerful)."
