To Each His Own

th-36

To each his own! How many people actually believe this? 

I am an active user of the Quora digest and it is very interesting if you all don’t know about the site you should visit. I visit the site every day for the past 6 months and it’s a great website where you can ask any questions you like and receive honest and unbiased answers. Wait did I just say! “UNBIASED”; Well except for any questions about GOD maybe there are other biased answers but GOD is the question that gets the most attention from the Atheists I mean.

My question is Athesis always trying to force their opinions about God on others? I thought everyone is entitled to their own opinions, I have no problems with the Athesis however, I do have a problem with them trying to force their opinions; is like there everywhere trolling certain sites.

I say believe in what you want what makes you feel comfortable no one should ever try to force their opinions on you.

Here is a perfect example of forcing your beliefs on someone.

During my years of studying psychology if someone were to ask me a question like this, I’d offer words of encouragement or maybe tell this person to speak to a Psychologist on how they are feeling. Atheist just takes things to a whole different level. See below:

Anonymous asked:    WHAT COULD I HAVE DONE TO MAKE GOD HATE ME?

Amazingly two Atheist had this to say and maybe to an already distraught individual, whatever his or her reason is for asking a question like this. See Below:

1. Anonymous Atheist answered: You have a negative outlook of yourself, but don’t worry about it is because of a vengeful God…Why you may ask? Well, there is no such thing as God. You will find people with negative attitudes tend to attract negative events, it’s not because of a vengeful none existent God. Be positive in your outlook and actions and you will find more positive than negative things start to happen to you.

2. Anonymous Atheist answered: By not following his rules.

KETOGENIC DIET

The ketogenic diet (or keto diet, for short) is a low-carb, high-fat diet that offers many health benefits. In fact, over 20 studies show that this type of diet can help you lose weight and improve your health. Ketogenic diets may even have benefits against diabetes, cancer, epilepsy and Alzheimer’s disease.

It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake and replacing it with fat. This reduction in carbs puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis. When this happens, your body becomes incredibly efficient at burning fat for energy. It also turns fat into ketones in the liver, which can supply energy for the brain (6Trusted Source, 7Trusted Source). Ketogenic diets can cause massive reductions in blood sugar and insulin levels. This, along with the increased ketones, has numerous health benefits

A ketogenic diet is an effective way to lose weight and lower risk factors for disease. In fact, research shows that the ketogenic diet is far superior to the often recommended low-fat diet. What’s more, the diet is so filling that you can lose weight without counting calories or tracking your food intake. One study found that people on a ketogenic diet lost 2.2 times more weight than those on a calorie-restricted low-fat diet. Triglyceride and HDL cholesterol levels also improved. Another study found that people on the ketogenic diet lost 3 times more weight than those on the diet recommended by Diabetes UK. There are several reasons why a ketogenic diet is superior to a low-fat diet, including the increased protein intake, which provides numerous benefits. The increased ketones, lower blood sugar levels, and improved insulin sensitivity may also play a key role.

Other Health Benefits of Keto The ketogenic diet actually originated as a tool for treating neurological diseases such as epilepsy. Studies have now shown that the diet can have benefits for a wide variety of different health conditions:

Heart disease: The ketogenic diet can improve risk factors like body fat, HDL cholesterol levels, blood pressure, and blood sugar.

Cancer: The diet is currently being used to treat several types of cancer and slow tumor growth.

Alzheimer’s disease: The keto diet may reduce symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and slow its progression.

Epilepsy: Research has shown that the ketogenic diet can cause massive reductions in seizures in epileptic children.

Parkinson’s disease: One study found that the diet helped improve symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.

Polycystic ovary syndrome: The ketogenic diet can help reduce insulin levels, which may play a key role in polycystic ovary syndrome.

Brain injuries: One animal study found that the diet can reduce concussions and aid recovery after brain injury.

Acne: Lower insulin levels and eating less sugar or processed foods may help improve acne.

MY STRUGGLE

I have been on the KETOGENIC DIET for almost 2 years and I can tell you from my personal experience that it works, I lost approximately 65lbs on this diet. Lifestyle is more is a more appropriate word, it has a massive impact on health. One of the benefits I have noticed was my polycystic ovary syndrome, I struggled with irregular periods since I was a teenager and since I started the Ketogenic diet I have never missed a month of my period, its always on time its never late. It helps tremendously with my wild moods swings and other symptoms that accompanied my period.

VIEWS ON RELIGION

WHAT IS RELIGION?

Definition

Religions are shared collections of transcendental beliefs that have been passed on from believers to converts, that are held by adherents to be actively meaningful and serious and either based on (1) formally documented doctrine (organized religion) or (2) established cultural practices (folk religion). In both forms, there are religious professionals who embody formal aspects of the religion and who act in positions of leadership and governance, and there are certain rituals reserved for them to carry out. The beliefs generate practical implications for how life should be lived. Religions often include: spiritual explanations of our place in the world in an attempt to answer questions about “why we are here”; worship of deities and/or supernatural entities (including ancestors); conceptions of “holy” and “sacred” activities ideas and objects; set rituals, calendar events based on the changing seasons, distinctive dress codes (especially for religious professionals), codes of morality and action that are given a mandate from a supernaturally great being, from a supernatural force or from the will of the Universe itself; and, a caste of privileged and exalted professionals who have particular claims to be in touch with transcendental forces.

SIGMUND FREUD AND HIS PSYCHOANALYTICAL VIEWS ON RELIGION

The Psychology of Religion is a fascinating topic. There is one that is most interesting to me in the field of psychology and religion and Sigmund Freud. who use a deeply rooted psychology based on the superego, sex, and the Oedipus complex, Freud’s views on Christianity and religion will intrigue anyone.

But first in order to understand Sigmund Freud’s views whether you agree with them or not you to know his beliefs based on years of research.

Background on Sigmund Freud

Freud was born into a large Jewish family in Freiburg (now Pribor, Czechoslovakia). At the age of four, his family moved to Vienna, with his father who was a wool merchant. Freud graduated from medical school in 1881 and later married Martha Bernays. Under the persecution of the Nazis, Freud fled his home and left for London, where he died on the eve of World War 2.

Freud and Religion

Based on what we learned above we have a good idea about Sigmund Freud and his religious upbringing. First of all, he had a Catholic nanny up to the age of three, he took him to church regularly. Secondly, although he was born into a large Jewish family of modest means, the atmosphere was almost entirely secular. Freud confessed that he did not have any supernatural belief or religious belief. However, he was interested in religion more so than any other cultural manifestation.

Totem and Taboo (1913)

Freud believed that religion was the projection of the child’s physical relationship with its father. He recorded his first thoughts on the nature of religion in total and Taboo published in 1913. In Totem and Taboo Freud attributed the origins of religion to the psychological connection between the Oedipus complex and totemism This stems from the primitive hold mentality in which the tribe leader would have many wives and many children. Young males were forced to leave the tribe in order to find a mate and young females would only mate with the horde leader. This prompted the young man to have a murderous mentality against the father in order to gain possession of women. Yet after they had killed their father, they would be overcome with a sense of guilt. From this arose their endowment of the Totem, with the qualities of the previous father leader of the tribal horde. The function of the totem was to remind the tribe that although the single authority of the father had gone at a human level, it must be preserved at a religious level. Eventually, the taboo of desiring their mothers and wishing to kill their fathers entered the individual consciousness and is known as the Oedipus complex. In the Oedipus complex, the child desire is the mother and wishes to kill the father. The Oedipus complex is the basis of Freud’s view on the origins of religion.

The Future of an Illusion

In Freud’s next book, the Future of an Illusion (1927), Freud stated that religion was an illusion and had no future. It is essentially an attempt at escapism. Religion exists in order to avoid the hard facts of life and retreat into wishful thinking. Freud stated that modern man should grow up, use reason, and consign religion to the place where it belongs -childhood.

Civilization and its Discontents (1930)

If you are interested in Freud and would like to read more of his original works, I highly recommend civilization and its discontents (1930). In this essay, Freud wrote that… “…the ordinary man cannot imagine providence in any other form but that of a greatly exalted father, for only such a one could understand the needs of the sons of men, or be softened by their prayers and placated by the signs of their remorse.” Sigmund Freud Basically, Civilisation and its Discontents generalize Freud’s psycho-sexual theories on the Oedipus complex, relating it to the neurotic aspects of society itself.

Moses and Monotheism (1939) Freud’s last book on Psychology and Religion was ‘Moses and Monotheism’. Freud was skeptical about the name Moses referred to in Judeo-Christian teachings. He believed that Moses was an Egyptian name, meaning ‘child’. Freud quoted evidence of the pattern of the career of heroes – particular that of Kings. Bad associations of the child’s birth and content to death and exposure meant that the baby was put into the water to be set ‘free’ in a basket. Afterward, the hero is rescued by animals or humble people and eventually rediscovered by his aristocratic parents. The hero takes revenge on his father. The aristocratic and humble families are actually reversed in the case of Moses. Moses had to be Jewish to serve the Jewish purposes, but in fact, it was an Egyptian and the legend was designed to turn him into a Jew. Freud asks – why should an Egyptian like Moses wants to be the head of a crowd of immigrant foreigners and leave his country with them? Is it really possible for such a man to give up his own religion and be the founder of a new one?

Freud considers the possibility of Moses giving the Jews his own Egyptian religion. Moses, says Freud, introduced circumcision into Jewish life, which had long been indigenous in Egypt. Circumcision’s purpose was to make people feel ‘enobled’. The event above all others, which was suppressed, was the murder of Moses. Moses met the same fate as Akhenaton – the difference being that the Egyptians waited for the course of time to remove the Pharaoh, whereas the Semites (Jews) took fate into their own hands to get rid of their tyrant.

Freud says that Jesus Christ’s Resurrection is the resurrected Moses – the return of the primal father. This happened, according to Freud, so the Jews could be faced with the charge of ‘killing God’. Circumcision and therefore is a symbolic substitute for the castration which the primal father once inflicted upon his sons in his absolute power. Whoever excepted that symbol was showing that he was prepared to submit to the father’s will.

2. Interesting?

LOVE LIFE

Love Life!!

OSHO

This quote speaks to me in so many ways, to acquire true peace and become close to God we need to be happy and content with our lives. When you read this quote it makes you think. Separation from God and happiness! Is detachment from life and happiness? In society today people are so taken up with the DOWNS  rather than the UPS of life. Life brings both happiness and sorrow but things change and nothing will remain the same forever and the feeling of sorrow it will soon pass. With a clear heart and mind, we become closer to GOD but when we are angry and filled with the resentment we lose touch with God.

FEELING STRESSED OUT?

STRESS OVERLOAD

Sometimes you may feel like you have too much stress to handle. If you think you just can’t cope any longer, you may want to seek help from a specialist. Talk to your primary care doctor to see if she can help you determine whether what you’re experiencing is stress or an anxiety disorder. He/She can also refer you to a mental health expert and provide you with additional resources and tools.

Signs of stress overload include:

Panic attacks

Worrying all the time

Feeling you’re under constant pressure

Drinking or doing drugs to deal with your stress

Overeating

Smoking

Depression

Withdrawal from family and friends

These signs are a cause for concern, while some of us feel or think we know how to deal with some or every aspect of stress that’s not always the case we may not all have that luxury some of us need additional help. So if you know someone that may show one or more of these signs talk to them and encourage to seek help. Please visit a psychologist or a health care professional.
