Is Righteousness Necessary?

Published

on

Righteousness is mainly defined as, ‘living a life that delights The Creator.’ It also refers to any behavior that aligns with the conventional principles of uprightness, virtue, and morality. Muslims and Christians strongly believe that God rewards and protects the righteous. For this reason, some of them strive to be righteous because they believe that being righteous guarantees blessings and prevents bad things from happening.

However, according to reality, bad things happen to anyone regardless of whether they are righteous or not. Nothing proves that the righteous are privileged or immune to bad occurrences. Just like wicked folks, the righteous are also found in catastrophic accidents, terrorist attacks, and many other bad incidences.

The universe seems to not care about righteousness because it treats the righteous and unrighteous similarly. For as Henri Frankfort observed: ‘A man who has been righteous throughout may yet be dealt with the powers who govern existence as though he were the blackest offender.’ (Henri Frankfort: The Intellectual Adventure of Ancient Man.’)

For this reason, the belief that God protects the righteous from bad occurrences is delusional. This belief might make you stop believing in God when bad things happen to you despite being righteous all your life. The only good thing about this belief is that it’s psychologically beneficial. It makes righteous folks less worried because they know their behavior assures God’s protection.

By the way, I am a realist. I look at life as it is and I don’t console myself with irrational belief systems. I only believe in things after proving their validity. Therefore, I embrace righteousness not because God protects and blesses the righteous, but because of the several benefits of righteousness I’ve experienced.

I’ve noticed that righteousness eliminates negative energy since it discourages negative feelings such as jealousy, hatred, and anger. Besides this, righteousness makes people trust you, and it makes life meaningful. It also enables you to be at peace with everybody and results in a good reputation that can help you attract wonderful opportunities. Many people will be willing to give you leadership responsibilities when you are righteous because they believe your behavior is reliable.

Therefore, righteousness is necessary because of these, and many other real benefits. We have not yet proved that God rewards or protects the righteous because just like the wicked, they also suffer. The righteous are vulnerable to bad luck, and a good number of them die poor. If God really loved and blessed the righteous as the Bible says, we could have seen them experiencing heaven on earth.

However, it seems God is fair because he treats the righteous and unrighteous equally. He designed the universe to ensure that all individuals experience bad and good things regardless of their way of life. He blesses and rewards both the righteous and unrighteous.

That being said, realize righteousness is necessary, but don’t be righteous because you want to be rewarded or protected for your righteous way of life. Be righteous because of its real benefits.

THE END. Thank you so so much for reading.

The Three Major Voices in our Heads and Why We Must Know Them

We all have voices in our heads, and some of us try silencing them because they sometimes cause depression, anxiety, or worry. Although these voices mostly cause feelings of distress, some of them can help us overcome obstacles and understand our true selves. It’s thus important to know the type of voice present in your head at any moment so that you know whether to ignore it or listen to it.

I wanted to know the different types of voices in my head, and therefore, I meditated on them, and I eventually realized that there are three major types of voices in our heads.

Here are they:

1.The Animal Voice

The animal voice mainly focuses on survival. It likes talking about food, water, sleep, sex, and other factors necessary for our survival. For instance, if you haven’t had sex for a long time, this voice will constantly talk about sex, and it will try to help you find a way to fulfill your sexual desires. Also, if you haven’t slept for a while, it will constantly tell you that you need to sleep since it knows that sleep is important to your survival.

2.The Ego Voice

This is the loudest and the main voice that speaks to us all the time. It’s created by our egoic-self.

The ego voice is highly judgmental and pessimistic. It fears uncertainty, and it will always talk you out of taking risks or doing anything with an uncertain outcome, even when it will be beneficial in the long-run. Besides, it likes knowing everything about the future, and for this reason, it will always overanalyze or try to predict the future.

The ego voice is usually confused since it is disconnected from reality. Lastly, it usually talks about your appearance and social status, and it worries when you encounter factors that make you feel less important.

3.The Voice of Infinite Intelligence/The Intuitive Voice/The Voice of God

Mastering the intuitive voice is the secret to spiritual growth because this voice loves directing you towards spiritual development by reminding you about the importance of spiritual practices. It also loves reminding you about your dreams and your heart’s desires so that you follow them and reach your full potential. Besides this, it cares about everybody, and it encourages you to be compassionate, loving, selfless, and benevolent.  

This voice is never confused, and everything makes sense when it speaks. We must learn to pinpoint and trust it because it always leads people towards prosperous and fulfilling lives.

Conclusion

It’s important to know the difference between these voices so that we know the voice that we must pay attention to, and the voice we must silence or ignore. Anyway, besides these voices, I believe there are many other voices in our heads. You are free to discuss them in the comment box below.

How Mainstream Academia Disconnected Us From Ancient Spirituality

How Mainstream Academia Disconnected Us From Ancient Spirituality

After analyzing mainstream academia for a while, I realized that it has disconnected us from ancient spirituality because it wants to keep us unenlightened.

One major way it has disconnected us from ancient spirituality is by classifying myths as stories with no value. Academia has resulted in a negative attitude towards mythology as it claims that myths were based on superstitions and fantasy. However, anyone who deeply analyzes myths realizes that they contain powerful spiritual lessons.

For instance, anyone who studies the Myth of Gilgamesh realizes that its creators wanted us to know that virtue results in immortality because, in the story, Gilgamesh realized that he would be remembered forever if he committed himself to becoming a virtuous king.

Besides myths, mainstream academia has concealed the truth about ancient blood sacrifices. Today, we never bother to study ancient blood sacrifices because academia brainwashed us into believing that they had no value. However, blood sacrifices were important because blood contains the essence of life force, and therefore, spiritual entities gained from these sacrifices in a way that mainstream academia refused to tell us.

Furthermore, academia has resulted in many people believing that polytheism was founded on a false belief system. However, many ancient history researchers now believe in the existence of many lesser gods, besides the Supreme God. They claim that it was from the lesser gods that the Christian and Muslim belief of angels was derived. As well, my analysis of ancient spirituality enlightened me that ancient people were polytheists because their strong connection to the spirit-world enabled them to see the lesser gods.

Moreover, mainstream academia instilled in us the belief that ancient religions were based on superstitions and are unreliable since they were created by primitive individuals. Academia avoids telling us that ancient spirituality was so powerful that it enabled the ancients to have a deep connection with nature. This connection enabled them to know medicinal, poisonous, and edible plants instinctively. Today, we spend lots of money to pinpoint edible and medicinal plants because we lost our connection with nature.

On top of that, I discovered that mainstream academia never informs us that today, many wealthy individuals secretly visit shamans – that still practice ancient spirituality – because they have realized the effectiveness of ancient spiritual practices.

In conclusion, I think we should start studying ancient spirituality and stop relying on the information that mainstream academia gives us about ancient spirituality because academia’s main aim is to convert us into dumb machines that work for the elite’s companies.
