I should be sleeping but couldn’t resist. In occult teaching, the only thing doing anything is sunlight; that everything is light. So sunlight is texting these words; sunlight is thinking these thoughts (that I mistakenly think I am thinking) and sunlight is the thoughts. Sunlight drives down the street, flies through the air, walks down the side walk - it takes form as everything that exists and is the doer of all. We think that we are all doing our own thing, with our own agendas and plans, but That which moves the heavens with all the rotating revolving spinning cycles and systems and seasons and times, is That Which is moving in us as us (we aren’t doing anything- we only think we are).
Ha, no worries of mocking.Another occult teaching is to unite everything with its opposite. In this spirit:
From the point of view of the sunlight itself, nothing ever happens, it never goes anywhere because it is already always everywhere, every path is the shortest and most effortless, and there is no before or after.
(this is not to mock or be contrarian, but to complement our perspective with that of the light)
Of course the sun supports life on earth. There are other planets with different suns, and possibly different life forms. God is assumed to be universal, not limited to this planet alone? When someone you love is in pain, do you turn to the sun for (spiritual) help?In this section I will refer to the Sun as God simply because it is our supplier of God's purest energy.

It fliesWe all have or at 1 time have had a mother and father but I like to believe we actually have 2 mothers and 2 fathers, your real mother and father then Mother Earth and our Father who art in heaven, God.
I see planets as female, the fertile ones like Earth contain all of the ingredients needed for life to occur but only with the injection of the male seed, Starlight.
On a literal level?I went to a church of England primary school in the UK, I had trouble believing what was read to me from the bible.
This seems to be the fashionable early 21st Century view but it’s not quite accurate, imo. There are several threads here on the subject of Constantine, who did in fact believe in Christianity. Christianity bought and still brings a huge amount of good – a point ignored by those who would do away with it. Not you @SidTWho first brought Christianity to millions of people? The Roman empire.
Did the Romans believe in Christianity? No.
Why did the Romans spread Christianity? To control the masses.
Many will agree. Many will disagree.Who was Jesus Christ? A renowned being.
Do I believe it would be fair on all the other renowned beings who've lived if I worship just one but not them? No
Does that mean we are equal to Jesus Christ?Do I believe Jesus Christ was the son of God? Yes, I believe we are all the sons and daughters of God.
Never when you or someone you love is in distress?Do I pray to God? Sometimes, when I enjoy feeling the Sun's warmth or watch a beautiful sunrise/sunset or look at the clouds or hear a bird singing or gaze at the Stars or even when I just sit and think indoors sometimes, I say how I appreciate it all but not verbally, I just think it and I have sometimes felt as if my thoughts were received, when got a buzz from thinking it.
YesI don't know much about other religions but I will say that no matter what religion anyone already believes in, they could also believe 'The Truth.' If their religions do not permit that they sounds to me like prisons for their minds.
I suppose 'a religion' implies more than personal belief -- religion implies scripture and place of worship, etc?Is this a religion or just a belief? I'm not sure if it could be called religion because it doesn't require I have do anything other than understand it and believe it so I'd say it's not religion but just belief, it's definitely belief because I believe it.
Undeniable, imoTo sum it up 'The Truth' means to me I should firstly appreciate and respect the Earth (and everything on Earth, all made of it's elements and part of it), the Sun, the Moon, the Universe/God/'The All,' in the knowledge they are all made of the same stuff and also understand that photosynthesis is the number 1 process we all depend on.
