Ignorance is Bliss

Good Christians everywhere believe what their pastor says is gospel. I tell people often- do your own research.  And I do not say that without respect for others. I say it with respect for all.

I recently read some literature from a Christian minister that said the Hindu get to pick one of 30M Gods to worship.  It got me wondering, because I took a world religion class and remembered it described differently in class, I wondered if this is accurate. Once I did my own research and came up with a bit of a different truth; I decided to copy the factual description here. I checked several different sites and they all said the same thing; but I chose this excerpt from Hinduism.about.com.

I think when a certain section of society is condemning (maybe not a great word to use!) others with only partial truths, or twisted truths, it should be made clear what the actual truth is. As you can tell from the following text the “millions” of “gods” are only aspects of the one supreme absolute “Brahman”. So while this may not jive with a Christian ideal, or maybe any others, it is not quite like I’ve heard described by some.  Ignorance truly is Bliss. 🙂

“Hinduism is generally associated with a multiplicity of Gods, and it does not advocate the worship of one particular deity. The Gods and Goddesses of Hinduism amount to thousands, all representing the many aspects of only one supreme Absolute called “Brahman”. However, people who don’t know this, misinterprets the fact that Hinduism has a multitude of Gods! What one should understand is that although there are many manifestations of Brahman in the forms of deities each deity is really an aspect of the Brahman or, ultimately Brahman itself. “

Micah 4:1,2

Micah 4:1,2

“But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.  2And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths”

I woke up the other day and wondered what had happened to my life. Funny how that happens, I realize that I am ready for a major shift. And I mean ready…I am spiritually positioned to make major changes in my life…..the flow has been stopped up for awhile and it is time to get it going in the right direction once again.

I am a Christian, I am also very spiritual. I believe in Angels and signs from God. I believe in positive thinking and affirmations. I know that this valley that I am in is just another bump in the road. I know that if I want to stand on the Mountain top I have to go through the valleys…I also know that once I conquer this valley there is no guarantee that there will not be another! As a matter of fact…there will be..at some point…and that is ok. Each valley is just another step towards reaching my goals…..and my ultimate goal is to stand on the mountain with God. My short term goal?  To change the lives of others by loving them….loving them enough to share what I know…..that is all.
