Take the First Step Test
People have long tried to decide if there is a God or not. The answer remains still just a question. Of more importance is our understanding of our purpose and place in the universe. The First Step Test (Step1.exe) is the test you should take before you attempt to understand yourself and certainly long before you attempt to tell someone else what they should accept as true.
There are 65 True/False questions in the First Step Test that explore your preferences on 5 categories.
- Religious or Dogma
Spiritual Humanism is a religion. Humanism is based on reason. Spiritualism is based on spiritual experiences. God is not the creator; God is the creation. The supernatural is the natural that has yet to be understood. The central focus of Spiritual Humanism is the rational creation, development, and honest definition of our Spiritual Experiences. This is the same focus as all religions. Our traditions, rituals, and ceremonies are taken from Shamanism (God is the Spiritual Experience within you that makes you the center of the Spiritual Universe). Religious disciples put their energies into religious rituals from the past. Shamans attend to their present spiritual experiences, and is so doing they bring themselves and others forward out of the darkness of ignorance into the light of wisdom. Jesus was a spiritual shaman. His followers made religion stagnant instead of creating the wondrous glory of ever changing religious experiences. If you feel the presence of God inside you, you know God exists. If you do not feel the presence of God inside you, you know God does not exist. Your feelings are your responsibility. Other people cannot define your feelings, unless you let them.
