Cultivating the Spirit of Religion. What’s Wrong With Polygamy And Beastiality? - Rhyme and Reason by Philip Brocoum. Sociedade Taoista do Brasil » Não-Ação / Wu Wei. By Rafael • • 11 dez 2012 “O caminho é uma constante não-ação Que nada deixa por realizar.”

Sociedade Taoista do Brasil » Não-Ação / Wu Wei

Capítulo 37 – Tao Te Ching Wu Jyh Cherng Sacerdote Taoísta Presidente da Sociedade Taoísta do Brasil Este verso do Capítulo 37, do Tao Te Ching, traz um dos conceitos fundamentais do Taoísmo: o conceito de Wu Wei não-ação. Este conceito pode ser confundido com não fazer nada, não agir. É não deixar de fazer as coisas porque se está premeditando ou intencionalmente evitando fazê-las. Ação é fazer. Devemos trabalhar com o silêncio interior.

Na verdade, só podemos saber realmente o que deve ser feito se não ficarmos a todo momento pensando no que deve ser feito. Omnism. Omnism is the belief in all religions , as well as atheism; those who hold this belief are called omnists (or Omnists ).

Omnism

The Oxford English Dictionary (OED) quotes as the term's earliest usage the 1839 long poem "Festus" by English poet Philip J. Bailey : "I am an omnist, and believe in all religions". In recent years, the term has been emerging anew, due to the interest of modern day self-described omnists who have rediscovered and begun to redefine the term. [ edit ] Contemporary usage.

Theosophy. Theosophy (from Greek θεοσοφία theosophia, from θεός theos, God[1] + σοφία sophia, wisdom; literally "God's wisdom"), refers to systems of esoteric philosophy concerning, or investigation seeking direct knowledge of, presumed mysteries of being and nature, particularly concerning the nature of divinity.

Theosophy

Anima mundi. Therefore, we may consequently state that: this world is indeed a living being endowed with a soul and intelligence ... a single visible living entity containing all other living entities, which by their nature are all related.[1] Other resemblances can be found in the thoughts of hermetic philosophers like Paracelsus, and by Baruch Spinoza, Gottfried Leibniz, Friedrich Schelling and in Hegel's Geist ("Spirit"/"Mind").

There are also similarities with ideas developed since the 1960s by Gaia theorists such as James Lovelock. See also[edit] References[edit] Further reading[edit] Spiritual practice.

A common metaphor used in the spiritual traditions of the world's great religions is that of walking a path. [ 1 ] Therefore a spiritual practice moves a person along a path towards a goal. The goal is variously referred to as salvation , liberation or union (with God). A person who walks such a path is sometimes referred to as a wayfarer or a pilgrim .

Predecessors of the concept[edit] Spiritualism (beliefs) It is also a term commonly used for various psychic or paranormal practices and beliefs recorded throughout humanity's history[2][3] and in a variety of cultures.[4][5] Spiritualistic traditions appear deeply rooted in shamanism and perhaps are one of the oldest forms of religion.

Mediumship is a modern form of shamanism and such ideas are very much like those developed by Edward Burnett Tylor in his theory of animism,[6] in which there are other parallel worlds to our own, though invisible to us and not accessible to us in our state. A psychic is to be one of the connecting link between these worlds. Abraxas. Abraxas (Gk. ΑΒΡΑΣΑΞ, which is far more common in the sources than the variant form Abraxas, ΑΒΡΑΞΑΣ)[citation needed] was a word of mystic meaning in the system of the Gnostic Basilides, being there applied to the “Great Archon” (Gk., megas archōn), the princeps of the 365 spheres (Gk., ouranoi).[1] The seven letters spelling its name may represent each of the seven classic planets—Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn.[2] There are similarities and differences between such figures in reports about Basilides's teaching, ancient Gnostic texts, the larger Greco-Roman magical traditions, and modern magical and esoteric writings.

Opinions abound on Abraxas, who in recent centuries has been claimed to be both an Egyptian god and a demon.[3] The Swiss Psychologist Carl Jung wrote a short Gnostic treatise in 1916 called The Seven Sermons to the Dead, which called Abraxas a god higher than the Christian God and devil that combines all opposites into one being.

This recorded testimony was later added to by an Italian Catholic priest and researcher in the 1940s. According to these reports, the event lasted approximately ten minutes. Great Architect of the Universe. Science, and particularly geometry and astronomy, was linked directly to the divine for most medieval scholars. Since God created the universe after geometric and harmonic principles, to seek these principles was therefore to seek and worship God. The Great Architect of the Universe (also Grand Architect of the Universe or Supreme Architect of the Universe) is a conception of God discussed by many Christian theologians and apologists.
