Superstition: Irrational awe or
fear of the unknown etc.; belief in a religion considered false or pagan; religious belief or practice founded on fear or ignorance; credulity
regarding religion or the supernatural; an instance of this, a practice, belief, etc., based on such fear or ignorance. Oxford Dictionary
Peter: Ancient spiritual belief is that the excesses of the human
instinctual passions of fear and aggression were due to being ‘possessed’ by bad or evil spirits and relief was sought by praying to the
good spirits, or God(s), for favours, forgiveness, redemption and salvation in this life and in a future life-after-death. Shamans, priests and
God-men soon laid claim to be the earthly representatives of these mythical ‘other worldly’ spirits and Gods and, as such, their words and
utterances were fearfully taken to be sacred and inviolate.
Each tribe has, over millennia, formalized its own particular religion based on
these ancient words, traditions, fears, superstitions and local eccentricities. The shamans, priests and God-men came to wield enormous power,
for to dare to question them was to provoke the evil spirits, incur the wrath of the God(s) and thereby irrevocably deny oneself the chance of
salvation in the future life-after-death. Ancient, ignorant and fearful understandings of earth and the cosmos led to the universal human
belief in ‘other worlds’, both above and below, that were populated by mythical ‘spirits’ or Gods. Further, ‘spirits’ or nature ‘forces’
were deemed to live on, or be a part of, earth itself leading to a spirit-ual view of nature – a metaphysical-only understanding of physical
life upon this material earth.
Each tribal group believes and asserts their particular God to be the ‘One and
Only’ God and this belief-system has subsequently led to a plethora of Gods and religions on the planet. Further, multitudinous
interpretations and re-interpretations of sacred texts, ancient scrolls and stone tablets have led to the formation of numerous competing
sub-cults and conflicting groups, even within a single religion.
The basis of all spiritual and religious practices is superstition which in itself
is grounded in fear and ignorance. The number of believers of Ancient Wisdoms and religions is amazing, and the faithful somehow manage to turn
a blind eye to the primitive superstitions, rituals, rites and black magic that are at the heart of each of them.
All spiritual belief is based on the concept that human existence on earth is a ‘necessary
suffering’ and that ultimate peace and fulfillment lies ‘elsewhere’, after death. This ‘necessary suffering’ is the Human Condition
of malice and sorrow and includes wars, murders, rapes, tortures, domestic violence, despair and suicide. Therefore, the belief that this
appalling human suffering is ‘necessary’, is actively perpetuated by Eastern spiritual belief, by the God-men and shamans and their
followers. With this belief firmly habituated on the planet, and particularly so in the Eastern religions, it is no wonder that human suffering
and violence continues to flourish.
Indulging in these primitive superstitions and beliefs and extolling them as the
‘Truth’ is to actively deny the existence of one’s instinctual passions that are the root cause of human malice and sorrow. This state of
denial only serves to prevent one from undertaking the common sense investigation that can evince an end to one’s personal malice and sorrow.
Praying to mythical Gods and trusting and hoping for a mythical freedom, peace and happiness in an
imaginary life after death, or aiming for spiritual enlightenment, is nothing other than senseless denial and impassioned delusion based on
primitive beliefs and superstitions.
