Within many religious traditions, this realm we exist within is seen as a place of desires (Maya)... Yet then many religions tell us this is to make us suffer... Which doesn't seem to make sense of the design plan.

Our brains produce chemicals that make us seek out fulfillment of desires, everything seems to encourage this activity, not to prevent it.

Yet the religious tell us that being sexually inactive is a way to be godly, is it? So God made us to be sexually frustrated or God made us to enjoy making love, and to seek out as much as possible?

We get a rush of energy when we gamble; why make it such a high, if you didn't want people doing it.

We're designed to find others sexually attractive naked, and yet some religions think that God designed us to be covered up, and to refrain from looking at all costs.

There are tons of natural foods, that cause us to get high, with the brain already being programmed to produce responses; not through intoxication as the religious like to impose, yet by integrated biological design.... So God literally designed us to get high.

So as we look at each individual religion, and what they presume we're not meant to be doing, are they all just prudish people, who all just think diametrically opposed in someway to the creation.

Can anyone give any logical reasons why the things that God created us to enjoy, are seen as sinful by religions?

Do you think the religious ideologies imposed by man, might be a way to see who really doesn't want to exist in the reality God created for us to take pleasure in, and explore all of our desires?

Which is the quickest way to get over a life long desire, to categorically deny yourself from thinking about it or to experience it, so it no longer suffices as a desire?

Personally think we're here to learn Oneness, so which is the best way to achieve that: us all celebrating in enjoying life together in the way it was designed or us all to fight over which things we shouldn't be doing, as they're deemed sinful by the religions?

Samsara => Yoga (Karma + Kriya, Bhakti + Raja + Jnana) + Dharma = Moksha

Cycle of rebirth => continual connection to Oneness (right actions + internal cleaning/repentance, devotion + mindfulness + seeking enlightenment) + righteous ethics = liberation from this material realm of desires

Unfortunately with religious presuppositions these don't always need to be based on logic, and thus it is possible to show flaws between what the sacred text actually says, and what a tradition believes.

Does Hebraic Theology Make More Sense in a Hindu Context? Posted on: 11/19 11:15:40

In Hinduism there is one ultimate manifestor of reality (Brahman), and then representatives that have been seen in physical form called Avatars (Shiva, Vishnu, Brahma, Krishna, etc).

According to a growing number of scholars, when we examine the earlier Biblical text, there was one God Most High, [URL='https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elyon']who divided the nations among the Elohim[/URL], and gave YHVH Elohim the nation of Israel as his people (Deuteronomy 32.8).

This then makes loads more sense of why the early Christian church accepted a concept of Yeshua Elohim being a son of the God Most High (El Elyon - Luke 1:32), and God Almighty (El Shaddai - Revelation 21:22).

In Revelation 4:4 there are 24 Elders sitting around the Throne of God Almighty, with the Lamb being one of them in Revelation 5:6.

These are thus similar to the 24 Elders/Avatars/Elohim, who have come here in different forms for us to understand the divine.

To me anything that is seen in a physical form is not the God Most High, which is like a CPU processing and creating reality; thus it is impossible for it to have walked with Adam, to have wrestled with Jacob (Israel), and to have eaten with Abraham.

There are scriptures that say YHVH Elohim is the one who created reality, and the Lord is One; this is similar to what Brahma did in terms of creating realities design, and how Krishna says the same thing in the Gita, that it is One God, yet it recognizes that Brahman is the ultimate formless source of reality.

So basically have the Jews after the Babylonian exile confused everyone with their concepts that Elohim can be seen both plural and singular depending on context, when really it was meaning Avatars all along?

This is my understanding of Oneness, God Most High/Brahman is One, the ultimate source of reality; with everything stemming from it, and the representatives recognize that the CPU is the source of all that exists.
