Four Fascinating Reasons Why Ancient Cultures Firmly Believed in a Higher Power/God

Published

on

My interest in discovering our true history enabled me to realize that many ancient cultures firmly believed in the existence of a Higher Power. African tribes, Arabians, Romans, and Greeks believed in the existence of a Supreme Being. They even prayed and offered sacrifices to this being because they believed it could influence their lives.

Some people claim that ancient cultures believed in the existence of a Supreme Being because they were dumb. However, many advanced ancient structures disprove this claim. These structures show that ancient folks were highly intelligent.

For this reason, there must be other sensible reasons why ancient folks believed in a Supreme Being. To discover these reasons, I studied ancient religions and I realized the following four fascinating reasons why these folks believed in the existence of a Higher Power.

1.Creation

Ancient cultures saw the intelligent design in all living things and believed that a Supreme Being was responsible for this design. This belief made some tribes such as the Kenyan Akamba to refer to God as ‘The Cleaver’ or ‘The Maker’.

Ancient cultures never thought that creation could have appeared by chance. They knew a Higher Power must have created this world and they formed creation myths that attempted to explain how God designed the world.

2. Ancient Cultures Realized That They Couldn’t Control Several Things

Most ancient cultures started believing in God after realizing that they had no power over several things. They realized that the rains rained at their own time, and they could not control negative factors such as death and illnesses. They thus believed that a Higher Power controlled these occurrences, and they offered sacrifices and prayed to it to make things work in their favor. For instance, the Greeks asked Zeus to bring rain because they believed he controlled rain.

3.The God Instinct

Ancient cultures believed in a Supreme-Being because human beings are programmed to believe in a Supreme Being. Our brains are wired to believe in God’s existence.

Neurotheologians argue that the anatomy of our brains predisposes us to believe in a Higher Power. Maybe, it‘s true, as Rene Descartes argued, that The Creator placed the ‘belief in God’ in our minds.

4.Magic

Magic is defined as the use of supernatural powers to influence events.

Many ancient cultures practiced magic. For instance, Egyptians used magic to cure illnesses and protect themselves against evil entities, and Greeks used magic to attract love and make bad things to happen to other folks.

Such cultures believed that magic came from a Higher Power and for this reason, they believed in a God of magic. Egyptians believed Heka was the God of Magic while Greeks believed Hecate was the Goddess of magic and witchcraft.

Conclusion

Therefore, it’s completely wrong to think that illiteracy played a great role in making ancient cultures believe in a Higher Power because there are sensible reasons that explain the origin of this belief.

The True Meaning of ‘Love Yourself’

Published

on

Many spiritual and personal development teachers advise us to love ourselves because self-love increases happiness levels, boosts self-esteem, improves physical health, and so on. However, although we know the importance of loving ourselves, most of us don’t know the meaning of self-love. For this reason, today I’ll share with you the true meaning of loving thyself.

Loving yourself means taking good care of your body through exercising and eating healthy foods. It also means loving your physical features and thanking life for them because they make you a unique individual.

Besides this, loving yourself means taking care of your mental state by ensuring that you only think higher thoughts because they provide you with a sense of inner peace. It also means eliminating suppressed negative energies within you by loving others and striving to forgive those who wrong you.

Moreover, loving yourself means forgiving yourself for all the bad things you did in the past and understanding that everyone, including you, makes mistakes. It means avoiding being harsh at yourself for failing to meet your expectations and understanding that life always gives people second chances. Loving thyself also means accepting whatever happened in the past and avoiding to blame yourself for your failures.

Furthermore, loving yourself means doing what you love, and avoiding jobs that hurt your physical, mental, and spiritual health.  It also means doing what makes you happy, and what ensures that you have a prosperous future.

Additionally, you love yourself when you put yourself first by unfriending time wasters, walking out of abusive relationships, and avoiding people who never add value to your life. You also love yourself when you focus on your strengths and ignore your weaknesses.

Moreover, you love yourself when you take care of your mind by meditating, reading inspiring books, and avoiding negative people. And lastly, you love yourself when you take care of your soul by expanding your consciousness and being virtuous.

In summary, loving yourself means taking good care of your mind, soul, and body, and ensuring that everything you do is good for you.

Why We Are Our Biggest Enemy

Published

on

Most of us blame life for our misfortunes and frustrations. We think we are unhappy because life is not on our side. Little do we know that we are our biggest enemy because we are frustrated although life blessed us with wonderful things that ensure we live well.

For instance, life blessed us with imagination so that we become creative and use our creativity to improve our lives. However, we use imagination to visualize the worst possible outcome. Moreover, it gave us memory to remember and correct our past mistakes, but we use it to relive the bad things that happened in the past.

Besides this, life gave us an intuitive voice to guide us, but we let our egos direct us towards unfulfilling lives. It also provided us with the stars to please our eyes and beautiful views to relax the mind, but we find these wonders useless.

Additionally, life gave us a mind with powerful magnetic forces to help us attract what we mostly dwell on, but we dwell on negative thoughts and therefore, attract negative events in our lives. It also created many human beings so that we support and love each other, but we are selfish, and we wish bad things upon others. We then attract these terrible things because wishing bad things for others lowers our vibration.

Furthermore, life provides us with endless opportunities. It ensures that we get whatever we want so long as we are courageous and risk-taking. However, we are afraid to take risks, and we complain when we don’t move forward. It gave us talents that can employ us and make us reach our full potentials, but we choose to work in boring jobs that never lead to growth.

Life is good. It gave us amazing bodies to enable us to experience the physical world fully. But we hate our bodies because we compare them with unrealistic bodies the media shows us. We also destroy our bodies by eating unhealthy foods, and we blame God for giving us a bad body and making us prone to diseases.

Furthermore, life gave us a self-healing body that naturally gets rids of toxins, and medicinal plants that treat various diseases, but we invest in pharmaceutical drugs that only eliminate the symptoms of our illnesses. We complain when we can’t access health care yet there are many affordable traditional treatment methods that can completely eradicate our ailments.

We are never thankful to Infinite Intelligence for allowing us to experience life in a physical realm. Moreover, we don’t live fully by living moment by moment and trusting that everything will fall into place. Lastly, we never meditate on life and realize how life always ensures that we live well. For this reason, we are our biggest enemy.
