What do you guys believe in?

Aside from the other question I asked, I'd like to know what do you believe in? Do you guys worship deities? What rituals do you follow? :)

apologies

I regret my last forum post (which arguably broke some rules and was finally deleted, at my request) made when I was burnt out after having a big problem. Much of the post was not relevant because of the last site focus change, which I am still not used to, and much of my post was emotional/subconscious nonsense, though some, such as criticizing ideologies of violent ideology texts, I still wholeheartedly agree with. Anyone I unfriended at that time (besides apologists for such texts), feel…

General Theosophy #110

“From the standpoint of epistemological Theosophy . . . if you are relying on anything other than a strong suspicion that you have lived before, there is a very good chance you are mistaken; if you are relying on no suspicion at all, there may be even a better chance. . . .”—General Theosophy

The Why

I was reading a book by Yogi Ramacharaka a few days ago, and a particular part of it held my attention.

It was about the "why" of everything. As in, the Big Why: why do we exist? why are we separated spheres of consciousness? why the seeming infinite progression upward?

In effect, it was asserting that the "why" can never be answered, and that any attempt to answer it is more or less attributing human characteristics to the Infinite. Which is, of course, a fallacy- one that is…

What does it mean to "Know Thyself"

Know Thyself (γνῶθι σεαυτόν, transliterated: gnōthi seauton)



What does it mean to know yourself?

Does it mean to examine yourself and know your limitations? If we looked at the opposite end, how would it be possible to know your limitlessness (lack of limitations).…

Angry at the people of the world and not the world.

I am angry at the people of the world and not the world itself. How come? I found out the world was here first people second. Since no one can truthfully say we the people have been here either seven thousand seven hundred thousand or seven million years, then how come we still can't agree on anything, still murder rape and steal plus wars and haven't found peace in those times? Only a few have, how did they do that?…

The wisdom of the sages of old.

When one reads their words one senses the peace of mind and beliefs of there words, conveying to us today their thoughts and hopes for us regardless of what their name was. In todays world it is said that "it is a dog eat dog world" which speaks for itself. The speaker believes it by experience. Yet the sages of old spoke differently with peace in their mind and heart. The word wonderment comes to mind as if to say there…
