Beliefs / Practices
Spiritual but not Religious, Pagan, Other Spirituality
The best label I have for what I believe is eclectic spirituality based in paganism. I believe the different religions of the world are different cultures' interpretations of the same Divine force. The best path to the truth is to look at all the different ideas and philosophies out there and find the commonalities. These include faith, meditation, the omnipotence and omniscience of The Divine, living in balance with nature, and being true to your true core self. My beliefs also include energetic principals. Science has shown us that all things in our known existence is energy, just moving at different vibrational rates. This includes what many call God. Through the disciplines I mentioned before, one can change their own vibrational field to be more in tune with The Divine frequencies
Expanding myself, music, any form of art/expression, learning
Buddha, Jesus, The Goddess/God, The many Deities of the Celtic, Hindu, Nordic, Greek, Native American, Egyptian and Roman traditions, my personal Fearie guides
I totally agree with you on that music stand point. I listen to almost NO modern music. The only modern music I listen to is instrumental music because that stuff isn't written for 13 year old girls by record company executives to make the next pop idol, it's real music. My musical taste has alot of range though, Classical, ALOT of jazz, Instrumental music, Older rock, some metal, alot of world music and others. My favorite musicians are buckethead, charlie parker, Frank zappa and Andy mckee and Black Sabbath of course.
