Ganesh!(?)

Seems like a strong psychedelic vision...

Would you agree?

sort of reminds me of the alex grey painting of albert hoffman...  Especially the eyes on the crown and his third eye.

I'm taking a religions of india class at my university it's intense.

Religion is an amazing thing. But when the wrong people get a hold of it they take it too far quite often.

Well...I'm the same but religion doesn't mean someone (god) is in charge. Religion can mean whatever you want it to mean.

when i do psychs during the day i always wonder how all of this thing we call life could have possibly happened randomly. there's just far too much coincidence imo.

In some religions we are the masters. 

It depends on how you look at it man.

Faith in god sometimes means working on ourselves (the true god) and I truly believe we are gods in the sense that we create reality and are somehow connected to everything in it.  We just do not fully understand..

Ganesha


Brahma


Kali

Hindu inspired art is some of my favorite.

Not only is the art cool but the philosophies of hinduism are some of the most interesting I have ever come across.
Namely Non-dualism.

Sweet man thanks for uploading some pictures.  I like the equality between man and gods, and how the various gods and goddesses have different qualities yet they are just reincarnated higher gods (vishnu and shiva).

Here is a shrine of Vishnu.  It's magnificent. 




Notice the many avatars of vishnu

Religion is amusing. I bet I'm the only one here who has been owner/admin on a large, ultra right winged conservative board. Damn that fucking sucked. Had to totally belly up and go against so much that I believed in. :lol: Only did it because it was a VERY close family member's dying wish. Got the fuck out and appointed someone else as fast as was appropriate. :lol: Closest I've ever felt to being something along the lines of a narc. :lol:

i have deep thoughts about it when i'm not tripping. it's pretty crazy how far we've come.

i don't think we would be a gods creation though. if anything i think we are a disease.

but me i'm a little weird.

Ganesha is pretty tight, I agree.

no gods, no masters means you are the master of your own body or soul however you want to call it, "we are the masters" as you so put it. it's just my motto. i wasn't trying saying there aren't religions where someone 'controls' you or you can't be the master. i'm sure there are many.

however, if you are talking about Christianity i have to strongly disagree with you.

that's all i'll say about that. i try not to talk about religion or politics being an atheist libertarian, living in the conservative bible belt, but i do want to leave you with a quote (yes i know this is taken out of context and its true meaning but i still like it)...

"Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people." - Karl Marx


p.s. i'm not saying religion is inherently bad, by any means. if it makes you happy, do it. it's just not for me. at this point of my life anyways.

agnostic myself, but i study jewish halakhic doctrine because even though i don't think it's of divine origin i think it's a good foundation of morality/how to live your life.

The Buddhist Gods look pretty bad ass too. I've been reading the Tibetan Book Of The Dead and its pretty interesting. I really like how they determine if your close to death or not. Some of it makes sense, but lots is too common to relate to death haha.


--------------------
Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

Atheism is silly to me. It's not on the same level as believing in the deities of a religion but its not too far behind. It may be the complete reciprocal of religious faith yet atheists aren't so different from bible huggers. Both claim to know the way of the universe, yet neither of them can back it up... not really, anyway.

It isn't the most logical way of thinking imo considering the seemingly infinite universe we exist in and how little we really know. And we really can't prove the existence of higher power, BUT, we can't really disprove it either.

Do you not lean towards agnosticism even a little? Just straight up Atheist?
