With everything we know about quantum physics, we are beginning to see the same belief system presented in a much more logical and scientific manner. That everything is apart of this grand infinite unified whole of moving energy that so far we don’t know how to understand. Its like these ancient beings had the same exact understanding and they experienced it by living through life unlike the way we today are experiencing life which is through technology.
By moving forward we are moving towards this ancient understanding. By looking at these ancient belief systems we begin to wrap our heads around what these ancients knew and understood and how we might actually reintegrate that ideology back into our lives but with a more complete scientific understanding about what it is we are interacting with. What is the mind of God? As we continue to look at culture over the course of history, we begin to see evolution of cultures in pre existing ones. Take India for example.
One of the oldest faiths practiced on this planet is Hinduism. Hinduism’s understanding is describing everything in the universe through iconography/symbolism. The Gods they worship represent different aspects of the divine reality, the universal spirit that works inside and outside of an individual.
This religion has a holy trinity of Gods. Brahma the creator of the universe, Vishnu being the preservation of the universe, and Shiva being all of the chaos in order rebuild and create anew. There are many levels through this hierarchy of creation, each part of a greater whole manifesting itself in different ways which unite various different traditions in the minds of men, creating new matrices of devotion. A Hindu worships one or many Gods, often both depending on family upbringing, community, or personal choice. The spiritual goal of Hindus is to put a stop to the rebirth of reincarnation and to be united with God also known as Moksha. This is achieved through the path of knowledge or devotion.
The path of knowledge is the path of study, yoga, and meditation while the path of devotion is praising and worshipping God. Worldly activities such as the pursuit of wealth, power, love, and pleasure must be performed in harmony with Dharma. Hinduism is thus, a loose assembly of communities and families of varying practices of the faith.
