I was born into a Christian religion. While I am a godless heathen today, I still have strong Christian leanings, if not in doctrine at least in culture.
I know now that there is far more out there than it seems, that we can do far more than we are told...
I was referring more to the fact that world is not just a materialistic layer (as I was brought up to believe within the atheist society)...grow up, go to university, get a great job etc...
I currently dont have high hopes for the society/humanity overall,
Considering how many of them don't have much to look up to in their lives, due to the extreme corruption of society and the iron grip that CCP has over China, it makes sense from a logical point that to them lying flat is the only thing they can do.For example the Chinese philosophy of "lying flat" may be a rejection of authoritarian materialistic society.
The problem aren't the rules and regulations themselves, but that those with more seem to always disregard such things and usually no punishment(proper punishment, let me be clear) befalls them, while those of more modest/humble origins or existence are pushed against the wall if they even think to act like the ones with power and status do.most of the modern society with it's rules and regulations and orders and prohibitions have left the young generation either in limbo or brainwashed to blindly follow
Yes, absolutely. I agree. It is hard for younger people to accept that the world isn't fair. You grow up being fed the fairytales of good vs evil and than you really grow up and are faced with a rather ugly reality.The problem aren't the rules and regulations themselves, but that those with more seem to always disregard such things and usually no punishment(proper punishment, let me be clear) befalls them, while those of more modest/humble origins or existence are pushed against the wall if they even think to act like the ones with power and status do.
This hipocrisy, this blatant favoritism and corruption tends to make one think about how life is unfair when those that commit evil are free and able to enjoy life, and those that are good are punished for being good, for "following the rules".
It's a game where proper players are always being challenged and dealt with, while cheaters/hackers just reap their and others' rewards.
No wonder the younger ones either grow up to despise and fight against the system in any way they can, or they just succumb to it and let themselves "just live" without actually living.
I was born a muslim , not raised as a muslim. Yes i do believe in Allah (Ar-Rahman - Adonai - El, All Mighty(Abrahams God), i practice solomonic magic, BUT only for good purposes( like finding job,love, positive things in life). I was before (2015-16) a demonolater for a year and after 6 month i left and confessed. Since that only positivity for the use of magic.I was raised Christian but left. Looked into Buddhism but wasn't for me. I've tried being a pagan, a Heathen, and a Satanist.
I've learned from these religions, but I can't seem to fit in entirety with a single tradition. I'm a lot happier beimg a freelance occultist and doing my own thing in private.
What about the rest of you?
