Do you think your result is accurate for you? http://quizfarm.com/test.php?q_id=10907 I scored as Buddhism. Your beliefs most closely resemble those of Buddhism. Do more research on Buddhism and possibly consider becoming Buddhist, if you are not already. In Buddhism, there are Four Noble Truths: (1) Life is suffering. (2) All suffering is caused by ignorance of the nature of reality and the craving, attachment, and grasping that result from such ignorance. (3) Suffering can be ended by overcoming ignorance and attachment. (4) The path to the suppression of suffering is the Noble Eightfold Path, which consists of right views, right intention, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right-mindedness, and right contemplation. These eight are usually divided into three categories that base the Buddhist faith: morality, wisdom, and samadhi, or concentration. In Buddhism, there is no hierarchy, nor caste system; the Buddha taught that one's spiritual worth is not based on birth.

Hello Vallie 26. I am a new mylot member and have been seeking out like minded others to add to my friends list and hopefully be added to theirs. I have put a request for you as a friend and if you wish to add me to your list that would be fine as well. Now on to the discussion. After years of study and spiritual questing I have come to believe that Religious beliefs and Spiritual beliefs are not always the same. All too often the dogma within many religions ends up being more of a cultish control mechanism than a pathway to true enlightenment. My Mom raised me with a belief in loving, honoring and respecting all people regardless of their color, race, creed, religious or political views. Consequently, I have great difficulty with any religion that promotes bigoted views that make everyone not following their path WRONG AND CONDEMNED TO HELL. I continually leave myself open to new teachings but shy away from any religious doctrine that boarders on extremism. We are seeing too much of that in today's chaotic world with fundamentalists from the East and West killing each other for religious reasons. Where is the love, honor, respect and justice in that? I know so many amazingly loving, spiritual people who go about making the world a better place in a quiet way...and they are the spiritual leaders who never get any air time. I guess if I have any way of defining my religion...it is summed up by all the great teachers. Love others...if we did that from a true place all our human rights issues would dissolve and wouldn't that make this a heavenly place to live? Great discussion material. I am sure there will be more if we continue to check out each other's sites.

I took the test scored the same as you did, but Pagan which is my belief, was just a precentage lower. I think it may be rigged to say buddhism with everyone, though I might share some beliefs that Buddhism followers share, I don't believe in one god. I believe in engery and everything is engery so everything is one.

Hi again, I responded to a discussion on your page and I each time I see something you write I pick up on the similarities in how we see things right down to your knees and the trouble you were having with them. Not an unfamiliar experience with me. Havent't had cortizone shots yet. Your energy comments is right on the money for me as well. Have you seen the Bleep Movie? A really interesting portrayal of energy-based....everything. Let me know if you have seen it and what you think...or if you haven't and decide to watch it.

http://tinyurl.com/235ygt I came out predominantly Christian--which, as a United Methodist, suits me just fine. However, I'm a little concerned about the 29% Satanist. OUCH!

You are an agnostic. Though it is generally taken that agnostics neither believe nor disbelieve in God, it is possible to be a theist or atheist in addition to an agnostic. Agnostics don't believe it is possible to prove the existence of God (nor lack thereof). Agnosticism is a philosophy that God's existence cannot be proven. Some say it is possible to be agnostic and follow a religion; however, one cannot be a devout believer if he or she does not truly believe.

I think that this deep personal question is to each individual something which is unique. I think we all need to answer to a higher power and that we need to formulate our own vision.
