    Buddhism

    [​IMG]

    Kind and thoughtful, your spirit is in line with the practices of Buddhism. More at peace with philosophy than religion, your spirituality rests within wells of knowledge and wisdom.
    You have a deep appreciation for life and the makings of our reality. For you, knowledge is sacred - as are acts of kindness and sincerity.
    Buddhism centers on happiness and wisdom, and the sanctity of inner peace - all things you hold in high regard.

    "Underpinning all of Buddhist thought are the Four Noble Truths:

    All existence is pain.
    All pain is caused by human cravings.
    Detachment from craving will end pain.
    There is an eightfold path that leads to the end of pain.
    Buddhism avoids paying much attention to deities, but places great importance on self-discipline, meditation and compassion.
    It is through these avenues that its followers achieve the equivalent of a spiritual union with higher powers.
    As a result, Buddhism is sometimes regarded more as a philosophy than a religion [source: Losch]." - Discovery.com

    Druidism
    [​IMG]www.artchive.com

    Intuitive with nature-based faith, Your spirit is aligned with the Earth and the ways of the Druids. Adventurous and reflective, to you spirituality concerns the here and now and not what is to follow. Nature is your temple, and if meditation is not already a large part of your spirituality we greatly recommend it becoming so. As a religion focused around nature, Druidism's ceremonies are organized around the two solstices, the two equinoxes and the 13 lunar cycles.

    "A strongly nature-based religion, Druidism emerged from the practices of shamanism and sorcery in prehistoric times. A major theme of Druidism is that all actions should be guided by doing no harm, even to oneself. Aside from harming the Earth or others, the Druids hold that there is no sin. According to the Druids, humans are just a small part of the Earth, which in turn is a single living being inhabited by gods and spirits of all kinds.Although early Christians attempted to suppress Druidism due to its polytheistic pagan beliefs and accused its followers of practicing cruel sacrifices, the Druids were actually a peaceful people who worshipped more through meditation and reflection than sacrificial acts. Any sacrifices were usually done on animals, which were then used for food."

    Buddhism for me.

    Which is kinda fitting since I was born into a Buddhist family but am non-practicing.

    I took the test again tailoring the answers to a "One god and religious" pov, trying to get one or the other. I got Egyptian instead, lol.

    I always thought Egyptian religious belief was polytheistic. Like those little canopic jars with lids modeled to represent the heads of different animal gods.

    I posted those comments because last semester, a teacher of mine mentioned his belief that it is appropriate to describe Christianity as an ancient religion. Really made me think!

    I was reading in the Michael Teachings that Rasputin was a druid in a previous life. Do you have a piercing gaze like his eyes?

    I don't think it's unique at all to feel spiritually connected to nature.

    I meant rather that when everyone else is watching football or going to a disco, then you are alone watching the stars or listening to the birds.

    Hinduism

    Wise and Stoic, your spirituality is aligned with the Hindu religion. Balance and inner peace, for you, is achieved through daily happiness and doing right not only by others but by yourself as well. A large part of your spirituality is the regard of Karma and all of its implications. Karma is directly reflected through your actions, and has a direct impact on reincarnation - another aspect of spirituality you may be in tune with.

    "Technically not a single religion, the term Hinduism actually refers to a number of similar beliefs and practices that originated in India. An overarching theme of Hinduism is the quest for "moksha," the idea of karma and the belief in reincarnation. According to Hindu thought, humans have an eternal soul that is continually reborn in many forms according to their actions in previous lives. Karma describes the consequences that result from these actions, and Hinduism teaches that individuals can improve their karma through prayer, sacrifice and various other forms of spiritual, psychological and physical disciplines. Ultimately, by following the right paths, a Hindu may be released from rebirth and achieve moksha." - Discovery.com

    Exactly.

    Ah I see. No, because I also do those things.. and watch stars and listen to birds. There is a reason why people love going to the beach or hiking or picnicking or just spending time outdoors (I've known very few people who hate nature and cannot stand to be outdoors.) Being outside is good for our mental and physical health. We're supposed to be connected to the earth. I don't actually consider myself a druid, just a nature-lover.
