Introduction to Animism & Why Modern Society Should Practice It

Published

on

Introduction

Animism, one of the world’s oldest religions, predates monotheism and polytheism. It existed around 2 million years ago, and some scholars claim organized religions emanated from it.

Animists believed everything has a spirit. They believed spirit/consciousness exists in the sand, water, humans, animals, trees, stars, and everything in the universe. They even believed the earth had a spirit.

Animists respected all living things since they believed every creature has feelings. For this reason, they only cut down trees or hunted animals when necessary. Some historians claim animists asked trees for forgiveness before cutting them down, and they conducted sacred rituals before killing animals to prevent their spirits from avenging their deaths.

Moreover, animists believed everything in the world is sacred, valuable, and has rights because all things have a soul. Also, they believed in the existence of a spiritual world, and they worshipped rivers, trees, and rocks, as they believed everything is holy.

Why Modern Society Must Practice Animism

Modern society must practice animism because it will eradicate our materialistic perception of the world by reminding people that the world is sacred. Furthermore, the society must practice animism because it encourages the conservation of nature. Christianity and Islam have not prevented people from destroying nature because they only focus on encouraging people to respect and worship a Male God.

Animism will prevent the destruction of nature since it enlightens people that nature has personal rights and deserves respect because it has a soul. For this reason, the society will avoid dumping waste in rivers, killing animals recklessly, and cutting down trees because it will respect and value the sacredness of nature.

Besides this, people will respect each other because of the belief that the Divine Spirit exists in everyone. There will be no killings or the exploitation of labor because of the belief in the sacredness of human life. Furthermore, practising animism will make modern society acknowledge the existence of the spiritual world and the importance of awakening our spiritual selves. It will make people to focus on the inner world instead of the outer world hence resulting in lower stress levels.

Conclusion

We ignore ancient religions because we believe they were a product of primitive foolish folks. Little do we know that ancient religions such as animism had a powerful effect on society and nature.  They made people respect each other and conserve nature. Besides, they resulted in people valuing life hence making mental illnesses such as depression rare.

An Amazing Occultic Interpretation of the Most Powerful Bible Verses

Published

on

Since the ancient times, occult teachings were only shared among priests and royal classes. Occultists were not allowed to share secret spiritual knowledge with the masses because the royal classes wanted to keep the masses dumb.

Today, we are lucky because we can access several occult teachings through books written by famous occultists such as Gerald Gardner and William Walker Atkinson.

I have read several books that provide amazing occult teachings and I fell in love with William Atkinson’s book, The Inner Teachings of the Master. In the book, Atkinson explains the history of Christianity and provides an occult interpretation of Biblical verses.

In this article, I’ll share with you his interpretation of the most powerful Bible verses.

Enjoy:

  • Matthew 5:3 – “Blessed are the poor in spirit; for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven

Blessed are those who renounce petty ambitions of the world and vainglory because they will realize their real-self.

  • Matthew 5:4 – Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth.

The meek are individuals who respect the spirit within and submit themselves to its guidance. These individuals are blessed because they will become masters of earthly things. They will rise above temporary things and become earthly lords because they will access the Kingdom within them.

  • Matthew 5: 8 – Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.

Those who attain purity of the heart and recognize that God exists within them will see God in everything.

  • Matthew 5: 9 – Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the sons of God.

Those who bring peace by informing people that all religions teach the same things and that there is only one God in all ceremonies, dogmas, and titles, are the Sons of God.

  • Matthew 5: 17 – 18 –‘Think not that I came to destroy the law of the prophets: I came not to destroy, but to fulfill.

Jesus believed in the ancient wisdom of the ancient prophets, and he did not come to destroy it. He wanted people to know that he came to provide more teachings about it.

  • Matthew 5: 39 – ‘You have heard that it was said an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, but I say unto you, resist not him that is evil, but whosoever smiteth thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.’

All occultists must have a positive mental attitude towards others, and they must be aware that higher thoughts of love neutralize evils and eradicate negative emotions such as hatred and anger.

  • Matthew 7: 7 -12 – Ask, and it shall be given you; seek and ye shall find…..What man is there of you if his son asks him for a loaf will give him a stone…All things, therefore whatsoever ye would that men should do unto you, even so, do unto them.’

Here, Jesus wanted people to live by faith in the Spirit, and he wanted people to know that the way they treat others will determine how people will treat them.

THE END

Thanks for Reading, and Peace be With Ye.

9 Amazing Prayers of Jesus from the Hidden Gospel of Peace

There are many teachings of Jesus the ancient elite never wanted the public to know. Most of these teachings can be found in the Essene Gospel of Peace, which was a little book translated into English by Edmond Bordeaux.

The book reveals Jesus’ teachings about our oneness with the earth, the power of our thoughts, the importance of inner peace, how people should pray, and so on.

Here, I’ll share with you the different types of prayer – from the book – that Jesus wanted us to adopt.

Enjoy:

  • Prayer to the Angel of Sun

‘Angel of Sun,

Holy Messenger of the earthly mother (Mother Earth),

enter the holy temple within me,

and give me the fire of Life.’

  • Prayer to the Angel of Water

‘Angel of Water,

Holy Messenger of the Earthly Mother,

enter the blood that flows in me,

wash my body in the rain,

that falls from the heavens,

and give me the water of life.’

  • Prayer to the Angel of Air

‘Angel of Air,

Holy Messenger of the earthly mother,

enter deep within me,

as the swallow plummets from the sky,

that I may know the secrets of the wind,

and the music of the stars.’

  • Prayer to the Angel of Earth

Angel of earth,

make fruit for my seed,

and with your power,

give life to my body.’

  • Prayer to the Angel of Love

‘Angel of love,

descend upon me and feel with love all my feelings.

For it is by love that the Heavenly Father,

the Earthly Mother,

and the sons of men become one.

Love is eternal and stronger than death.

And every night should the Sons of Light

bath in the Holy Water of the Angel of Love.’

  • Prayer to the Angel of Wisdom

‘Angel of wisdom,

descend on me,

and feel with wisdom all my thoughts.’

  • Prayer to God (A)

‘Our father who art in heaven,

send to all the Sons of Men,

your Angel of Peace,

and send to our thoughts the Angel of Power.’

  • Prayer to God (B)

‘Our father who art in heaven,

send to all the Sons of Men your angel of peace,

and send to our body the angel of life

to dwell in their forever.’

  • Prayer to God (C)

‘Our Father who art in heaven,

send to all sons of men your angel of peace,

and send to the kingdom of our earthly mother the angels of joy,

so that our hearts may be full of singing

 and gladness as we nestle in the arms of our earthly mother.’

Conclusions

I believe in these prayers because they are similar to the prayers of many ancient societies that had a good understanding of spirituality. Anyway, besides the above prayers, there are many more prayers from the hidden teachings of Jesus which I’ll share with you in my future posts.

PEACE BE WITH YOU
