  • Is there any evidence of this “New Age Spirituality” or anything like it?

    Question by King of Pop: Is there any evidence of this “New Age Spirituality” or anything like it?
    Evidence of anything. Personal stories, predicting the future, helping someone, recorded scientific studies, reading into someone, undeniable miracles etc…
    Because that’s what they claim to do. Any evidence of ANY KIND?

  • Why are there separate sections for “Religion and Spirituality” and “Mythology and Folklore”?

    Question by Unnecessary X’s: Why are there separate sections for “Religion and Spirituality” and “Mythology and Folklore”?
    It all really depends on perspective.

    To a Christain, the Ancient, nature-based Gods and Goddesses would be a Myth. To a Pagan, the story of Jesus would be simply a Myth. It goes on and on…

    Why are there two sections?

    It is redundant, I know.

  • Are There Really Coincidences in Life or Are They Clues?

    That’s funny, I was just thinking about you. I have a gut feeling…… Amazing, I was just looking for information on that subject. That’s lucky.

    Deepak Chopra has a quote “Seekers are offered clues all the time from the world of spirit. Ordinary people call these clues coincidences”.

     

    Dictionary term: The occurrence of events that happen at the same time by accident but seem to have some connection.

     

    Is there the possibility that there might be more to this life then what we can see with the naked eye?  We all have our own beliefs. Some believe in Heaven and Hell, God, Spirit Guides and Angels while others may not believe in anything at all.  Perhaps there is no such thing as coincidence and that we are offered clues all the time if we just listen to our inner voice.

     

    I have a perfect example of how listening to my inner voice or so called coincidences have had an impact on my life. The other day, I was in a little bit of a funk and then I woke up Wednesday bright eyed and bushy tailed. I said to myself, I could be gone tomorrow so I am enjoying my moment today. Well I walk into the bathroom and the song on the radio was a Nickleback song “If today was your last day….”. Well I just grin and say my little thank you, as that is exactly what I was thinking 5 minutes prior. Coincidence??? Perhaps.

    How many times have you thought about someone and they call or you need a key piece of information or contact list and you turn around and it is there. How many times have you said to a friend, that’s weird, I was just thinking the same thing or I was just going to call you.

     

    We live in a world where we have to see something with our own eyes to believe it. If it is not scientific or black and white, it doesn’t exist.

     

    Is there a possibility that perhaps there are things that happen in our lives that we cannot explain or that perhaps there is something that we cannot see, but we feel in our “gut” that helps us along in our life? Some may call this crazy, but I challenge you over the next few weeks think about it. Instead of saying well that’s a coincidence, give it a second thought and think about how many times that comes up in your life?  What if it’s not a coincidence at all?  What if you followed these clues throughout your life? Perhaps you are being guided by something bigger then you ever imagined?  Anything is possible if you listen.

     

    I know that the more I believe in something I can’t see, the more help I get. In the past, I have had all kinds of clues appear. When I look back, I realize that if I had acknowledged those clues, things may have been different. Today I trust in the clues and they don’t let me down too often.

     

    Perhaps it is all coincidence, but boy if it is I must be the luckiest person in the world!

  • Are there any Zen Pagans out there? Is Zen Paganism a functional religion?

    Question by Beatchanter: Are there any Zen Pagans out there? Is Zen Paganism a functional religion?
    Let’s use as a base definition …..

    for Zen: “emphasis on practice and experiential wisdom—particularly as realized in the form of meditation known as zazen—in the attainment of awakening.”

    And Paganism: “a term which, from a Western perspective, has come to connote a broad set of spiritual or cultic practices or beliefs of any folk religion, and of historical and contemporary polytheistic religions in particular.”

    Is ANY religion “functional”? I think not. I think all religion is DYSFUNCTIONAL.

  • “If there is any religion that could cope with modern scientific needs it would be Buddhism.” -Einstein?

    First, Buddhism is not a religion. It is a lived philosophy as it has no god or supreme being, no anthropomorphic deity, it is a not a practice of a judgmental nature so it does not condemn and it excludes no one.

    The practice of Buddhism is based on that which one has reliably and verifiably experienced personally in his or her own lived life experience.

    In such a case and situation, when new facts are discovered or arise, one must then change his or her understanding so that the same agrees with the facts rather than denying the facts and retreating into ignorance.

    In this manner, this lived philosophy follows the example of modern science which adjust to new discoveries and facts so as to related and deal effectively with what is rather than how one might wish things to be.

    This allows Buddhism and the practice of the same to freely adapt to life as life progresses.

  • Q&A: Fellow Wiccans, IS there such a word as “Wiccanism”?

    Question by prairiecrow: Fellow Wiccans, IS there such a word as “Wiccanism”?
    Hello, all:

    In response to a recent question of mine, someone called the Wiccan religion “Wiccanism”. When I pointed out that there’s no such word, I received an email stating:

    “‘Wiccanism’ yes there is such a word, look up your Latin.”

    This left me scratching my head, because

    (a) The root of the word “Wicca” is certainly NOT Latin in origin;
    (b) Latin words don’t usually end is “ism”; and
    (c) I’ve been Wiccan for 16 years and never heard the word “Wiccanism” used by anyone who knows anything about our faith.

    So, am I wrong? IS the word “Wiccanism” a valid term that I just haven’t encountered in learned circles?

    Thanks to everyone who takes the time to respond in a civil manner.
