Freedom is my religion

I keep every aspect of my life simple including my spirituality. Someone asked me today what religion did I follow. I said I don’t know what fucking religion I follow. Yes I do. I told him I didn’t know maybe because I felt like I wasn’t ready to discuss it.

I don’t focus so much on the afterlife. Living a good life on earth just to have a wonderful afterlife isn’t as appealing to me as maybe it should be. I use to connect to the idea that I will go to heaven if I were a good, little Christian boy. I prayed. I felt guilt when I sinned. I was ashamed to even masturbate because I thought God would be angry that I did such a thing. And no, that still didn’t prevent me from masturbating. It just prevented me from feeling happy moments after I cleaned myself up.

Now don’t get me wrong. I am still highly spiritual. I do believe with my entire being that there is a powerful force that loves me unconditionally. And if I believe that force loves me unconditionally, I don’t see a reason for it not to love anyone else any less. There have been moments in life that I feel without a shadow of a doubt that God revealed himself to me, from having powerful dreams that guided me to having my prayers instantly answered. I know there is a force out there that is pure love and energy.

For the most part, people’s religions have been determined for them based on the family they were born into. A young human mind, so empty and ready to soak up anything and everything, latches on to what’s been told to them. All with the purpose of forming their perspective, their reality, to dictate the type of experiences they will receive. But then, there are some people, free spirits in every sense of the words, people like me, who challenge fucking everything. They breakaway from certain traditions and beliefs that don’t align with the experiences they’ve had. They no longer try to put their experiences into their religious beliefs, but rather create their own beliefs based on their own experiences. They decide to be open, accepting, non judgmental to formulate their core beliefs. Their minds as result becomes free. Freedom – it’s a powerful thing. And as a result, like other free spirits, I can finally say that freedom is my religion.

A spiritual discussion about pornography

Being designed by God, why would God get upset with me for being horny? God probably enjoys watching us have sex. And with that I must ask, is porn really a bad thing?

I first have to provide a general explanation that explains our human purpose. The purpose of life is to experience this world in the human form. Our deeper form, what I have decided to call our souls, is highly connected to our source, or what other people call God or Higher Power. Being in our human forms cause us to be fairly disconnected from our source, which is pure love, energy and peace. Knowing and needing that peace, our deeper levels search for this comfort and peace as we experience this world. We can get it in many types of ways but sex is one of the most powerful ways for humans to gain comfort and connections.

We get comfort in this world through our connections. Connecting is just what humans do. We connect to thoughts, places, people and things. We connect through our minds with our thoughts and our bodies through our senses. Choosing not to discuss spirituality in the sense of judging what is right and what is wrong, watching porn is something humans connect to as part of the human experience.

We are sexual beings who desire to connect via sex. That is one of the most powerful connections human can experience and a connection humans should experience. Sexual connections are so powerful that we even connect to sex thru our minds, in our fantasies. Just looking at other people in sexual acts arouse without actually be part of the sexual act. That is the power of a mental connection, something our human minds were designed to do. Our sexual desires are part of the human experience and if our desires aren’t being comforted in reality, we will seek to comfort through our minds.

My spirituality is based on the acceptance of what is. Our source is nothing but love, unconditional love. I believe that the source loves all of us unconditionally and wants us to have a fulfilling human experience. I believe we should be able to fulfill those desires if respect is giving to others and the fulfillment of those desires do not cause discomfort to others.

Of course watching pornography is highly addicting, but there are many things we enjoy as human beings that can become addicting. Some addictions we have accepted to be normal parts of lives. To maximize the benefits of this human experience, the key is to monitor how strongly connected you are to your connections and assess if it is within the appropriate levels the best suits you.

Ultimately what I’m trying to do is open people’s minds. Allow people to explore their sexuality and be comfortable with how they receive pleasure, and free from guilt. Essentially enjoy doing what you enjoy doing if you are respecting others and not being the source of anyone’s discomfort.
