Christianity…

Religion has convinced people that there’s an invisible man … living in the sky. Who watches everything you do every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a list of ten specific things he doesn’t want you to do. And if you do any of these things, he will send you to a special place, of burning and fire and smoke and torture and anguish for you to live forever, and suffer, and suffer, and burn, and scream, until the end of time. But he loves you. He loves you. He loves you and he needs money.

F. Holland Day, The Seven Last Words, 1898

Day portrays himself as the dying Christ in a series of seven prints, five of which are shown above. Each photograph represents one of the last phrases spoken by Christ:

Father forgive them they know not what they do.
Woman behold thy son: Son thy mother.
I thirst.
Into thy hands I commend my spirit.
It is finished.

anonymous said:

Except if you're not native american who's culture includes animal totems. Many native cultures are closed and even more are not comfortable with non natives 'exploring' their cultures, or rather, bastardized versions of their cultures.

Well, see, as long as you don’t specifically say   “Native American Animal Guides” or something, you’re usually fine. Spirit Animals and such are actually a universal thing. What would be very inappropriate would be, say, doing a pow wow or something like that.

 What would be wrong is using feather headresses in your practice, or other exclusively native items.

soul

sōl, noun, also spiritatman (Sanskrit)

1. Philosophy: the immaterial aspect or essence of a human being, that which confers individuality and humanity, often considered to be synonymous with the mind or the self. In theology, the soul is further defined as that part of the individual which partakes of divinity and often is considered to survive the death of the body.

2. Buddhism: According to Buddhism there is no individual eternal soul that comes from heaven or that is created by itself and that will transmigrate or proceed straight away either to heaven or hell after death. Buddhists cannot accept that there is anything either in this world or any other world that is eternal or unchangeable.

3. Hinduism: Soul or Ātman is the first principle, the true self of an individual beyond identification with phenomena, the essence of an individual. In order to attain liberation, a human being must acquire self-knowledge (atma jnana), which is to realize that one’s true self (Ātman) is identical with the transcendent self Brahman.
