Today, people are building businesses, following their passions, or getting employed, because they want to achieve financial success.
However, there is this idea that being deeply religious or spiritual can enable an individual to achieve financial success. Is this idea true? Let’s find out.
Although many people think spirituality and religion are different, these two fields are almost similar because they both believe we are connected to something larger than life. Furthermore, they both believe that a person’s life becomes better when he or she establishes a strong connection with this HIGHER POWER/GOD.
Also, spiritual and religious people support virtues such as faith, generosity, kindness, love, and so on. Both fields believe that adopting such qualities promises a good life.
These beliefs have resulted in many people becoming religious or deeply spiritual because they want to live better lives. However, some people embrace religion and spirituality because they believe that being religious or spiritual can help them achieve financial success.
Little do they know that a person can meet financial success with or without being spiritual or religious. The crucial determinant of whether an individual will achieve financial success or not is hard work. No matter how hard you pray or how spiritual/religious you are, you will never meet financial success if you are lazy.
However, spirituality or religion can increase a person’s chances of achieving financial success if combined with hard work because being spiritual makes the journey to financial success more enjoyable.
It is very hard for a highly spiritual/religious person to give up on the journey to success because he or she probably believes that a HIGHER POWER, which is all-powerful and all-knowing is helping him along the journey. The confidence that one is working with a Higher Power or God enables the person to be sure of achieving success hence making it almost impossible for him/her to give up.
A rich and famous American entrepreneur once revealed that believing in a HIGHER POWER is necessary in the journey to financial success because this journey is tough. The journey’s toughness and uncertainties make an individual realize that he/she cannot travel alone hence forcing the person to seek the assistance of something more POWERFUL.
Spirituality and religion also enable an individual to be trustworthy, faithful, and peaceful with whatever happens.
The journey to success appears easier and interesting if you have such qualities. For instance, the more trustworthy you are, the more people will like to do business with you or promote you to higher positions. Furthermore, if you have immense faith and you’re good with whatever happens, you won’t be disturbed by failures or disappointments while striving for financial success.
Therefore, although financial success requires hard work and determination, it’s arguable that being spiritual or religious also aids in achieving this success.
Embracing spirituality or religion makes you attain inner-peace, and enables you to have immense faith and confidence hence making the journey easier because nothing can beat FAITH, CONFIDENCE, and a CALM MIND.

Did the Biblical Great Flood Really Happen?
In Genesis, we read about God telling Noah to build an ark because he would bring floodwaters on the earth. Noah then built the ark and God sent the floodwaters which eventually covered everything including the tallest trees. The floods also wiped out all living things that didn’t enter the ark.
I used to think this story was a mere ‘myth.’ However, after studying ancient history for a while, I realized it could be a true story.
Studying history enlightened me that many ancient cultures narrated a great flood. For instance, the ancient Kenyan Maasai told a story about a man who built an ark because God wanted to destroy mankind. Moreover, the ancient Mandingo tribe narrated a flood that God sent to destroy selfish people.
Besides the Maasai and Mandingo, the Sumerians also narrated the flood story. They claimed their ruler built a huge boat because their gods wanted to destroy mankind. Furthermore, ancient Greeks, Indians, Chinese and many other cultures reported the great flood.
The fact that many ancient cultures reported a great flood shows that the flood occurred because they couldn’t have coincidentally formulated the same flood narrative considering that they lived thousands of miles away from each other. It appears the ancients witnessed the great flood and reported it in the form of myths.
Besides this, many ancient buildings, especially the pyramids, have watermarks that indicate the presence of a great flood. Also, the discovery of fish fossils in hilly areas indicates a great flood might have happened thousands of years ago.
Furthermore, there once existed a highly advanced civilization that built pyramids and invented technologies that the modern civilization can’t invent. However, it stopped existing after a great natural disaster, which many historians believe was a great flood.
Also, the existence of gigantic structures and several gigantic artifacts prove that giants once existed. However, we can’t see the Giants today because they disappeared after a catastrophic event occurred on planet earth. Perhaps the great flood could be the reason for the Giants’ disappearance.
The Bible supports the giant theory as it claims that ‘there were giants in those days (Genesis 6:4)’ the flood occurred. It describes them as ‘the mighty men who were of old, men of re-known (Genesis 6:4).’ Maybe God sent the floodwaters to wipe out the giants.
Anyway, although I don’t believe in all Biblical stories, I’m tempted to believe in the Genesis Flood Narrative because of the ample evidence, stories, and sensible theories that support it. I will continue researching this narrative so that I understand our true history.

Why Marijuana Might Be Good For You
“The illegality of cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world.” – Carl Sagan, American Astronomer
I used to believe Marijuana was bad because it led to mental illnesses. However, my experience with the drug and my extensive research on it changed my perception towards it.
While studying cannabis, I realized that most ancient cultures deified and used it in their religious practices. For instance, ancient Greeks used marijuana in religious ceremonies while some ancient African tribes worshipped it. Besides this, ancient Indians offered their gods cannabis because they believed Lord Shiva created and smoked it.
Furthermore, some ancient cultures, specifically the ancient Egyptians and Chinese, discovered the medical benefits of Marijuana. The ancient Chinese realized that Marijuana healed the body because it enabled it to achieve a harmonious state while ancient Egyptians used Marijuana to treat psychological problems and many other health issues.
Some modern health practitioners agree with the ancients about marijuana’s ability to heal medical issues as they use marijuana to treat epilepsy, post-traumatic stress disorders, chronic pain, and glaucoma.
As for me, I realized the drug relieved anxiety and stress as it helped me adopt a positive perspective towards heartbreaks that almost killed me. Furthermore, marijuana enabled me to think deeper and gain great spiritual insights I couldn’t have gained when sober.
However, most governments banned cannabis after claiming it was a gateway drug and was responsible for severe mental illnesses. However, research reveals marijuana isn’t a gateway drug since most marijuana addicts seldom use other substances. Besides this, I live in an area where most people use cannabis, and I rarely see them use other illicit drugs.
Additionally, contrary to most governments’ claims, marijuana doesn’t cause mental illnesses. I’ve used it for more than five years, and I’ve never gone mad. Moreover, many studies show that cannabis has antipsychotic effects which enable it to treat mental illnesses such as Schizophrenia.
Some conspiracy theorists believe the government banned marijuana because it almost made the paper industry bankrupt as it provided a cheaper way of making paper. This conspiracy theory might be true because the ancient Chinese used cannabis to make paper.
Additionally, other conspiracy theorists claim the government banned marijuana because it enabled people to realize important spiritual truths the government didn’t want them to know. This theory might also be true because recently, after using cannabis, it dawned on me that my consciousness is the same consciousness that created the world.
Anyway, I believe the government banned marijuana because it feared some people, especially teenagers, might overconsume it. Marijuana is a dangerous drug when used in excess because it leads to laziness and increases the risk of psychosis. But remember, everything is dangerous when used in excess. For instance, drinking too much water causes nausea and muscle weakness while overeating causes obesity.
For this reason, marijuana is harmless and beneficial when used in moderation. It provides unique spiritual, health, and mental benefits nothing else can provide.
