religion, in itself, is a centralized, well-established system of rules that governs the relationship between a person and their object of worship.
that is, you have uncles and aunts who have written a set of rules, then there are the same people who teach you how to correctly follow this set of rules and how and where to bow (pray, fast, or whatever), and finally, these uncles and aunts have their own homes or a special place where they can be found if necessary.
And naturally, the uncles and aunts have some kind of boss, where can we go without it?
it turns out that no matter how you look at it, the more organized a religion is, the more different bureaucracy there is.
this means that no one is needed in any animism. сам he bowed to the ancestor and the spirits, he sacrificed himself� and is free
I think there is one. Solipsism. Worship yourself as a god. The adherents of this religion are well described in the semi-schizophrenic novel for a very big fan “Connecting Rods”. Particularly advanced solipsists brought themselves to the point where they experienced a powerful orgasm from just touching themselves – DIVINE.
This is entoism. Religion is close to the ideal. He mostly confesses in one inconspicuous archipelago just east of the Kuril Islands. It is not devoid of temples, but they are modestly decorated and decorated, but quite spacious (but not gigantic). The main focus is not on decorations and decoration, but on rituals, rituals and the accumulation of knowledge about the world.�
The world in cosmology is a giant deep ocean in which there are islands. On the island where people live there is a “Big Lake”. That's what they call the Pacific Ocean.�
The main god is the Great Storyteller. He used the power of his imagination to create the entire universe and put in it an Ent, the first spirit of the universe. They created the First Nation-the tribes of deities. One of them – Manamun traveled by ship on the boundless ocean. A sage with magical powers has gathered a certain group of gods. They include:
Mukid. Goddess of beauty and death.�
Nigibah. Architect, engineer, and builder.
Halamun. God of commerce and fellow countryman of Manamun.�
A ship passing near the island of people crashed. People offered their help in repairing the ship, and Manamun shared his wisdom.�
Soon, people themselves began to build ships that sailed on the “big lake”. They built the first city and started building temples. Manamun gave the task to the people-to go out into that boundless ocean and swim to it, to the center of this ocean. A small group of priests passed on this revelation from generation to generation. Entoists believe that there is a vast ocean in the heavens or beyond, and that their god Manamun lives in a huge temple. Next to him is the spirit of Ent. And somewhere in another world, a Great Storyteller makes up legends about us, and that's why we exist. In the Entoist cosmological map, stars are represented by candles, and dim luminaries are represented by stones. This map is a floor on which candles and stones are placed, repeating the starry sky. Entoists look at the world as a kind of complex constructor. This religion teaches broad thinking, objectivity and sensitivity of perception. Entoism still exists today.�
I hope you understand the meaning of these words… it is close to ideal.
I didn't quite understand the question about spheres, about an ideal religion without churches and temples. Perhaps even without God it would be desirable for you to have everything according to your own concept and taste? If so, it's close to Satanism in all its forms. It is Satanism that is the desire of a person to be his own god and not to be ordered by anyone. As one of its adherents proclaimed – do what you want-that's the whole law. It was Aleister Crowley.
In general, the concept of “religion” means the return of a person to the power of God – it remains to find out which religion is a clearer and more direct revelation from God. There are not so many of them in fact – I think it is not an impossible task to understand this. But I will say right away-the framework that celoz seems to be so unpleasant to you exists in all religions in one way or another.
All religions have adapted to local conditions, but the humanistic basis is the same. But they have adapted so much that they have lost their meaning and practical use. The oldest known cult: The moon, then the Sun, went wild and worshipped trees, mountains, animals, and ancestors. I read that there were times when there were no temples, rituals and priests, it was just a science of life and human forces and nature. There was no need for blind faith, everything was already obvious. You can guess, we are talking about Plato's Atlantis.But while megaliths are being explored on land and at the bottom of the sea, everyone can decide for themselves whether it was or Plato is a stupid storyteller.
What does perfect mean? For me, the ideal is when your worldview connects to the truth. That is, to something real, which is unchangeable. After all, all the pleasures of this world are nothing. Even if a person lived 2000 years, and all these 2000 years received maximum pleasure… then it won't matter to him… if he feels bad right now… he wants more and more. But if you are connected to the truth, you can enjoy life every moment, no matter what happens to you… I have been searching for a long time, and I was lucky enough to find the very first worldview on Earth-Bnei Noah. (Christianity is 2000 years old, Islam is even less… ) And the worldview of Bnei Noach is more than 5000+ years old. (the year is now 5779 🙂
Perfect – yes, but not for everyone, not to say for a few. If a certain religion accurately describes the worldview of a particular person, corresponds to his ideals and he fully agrees with its moral norms and is ready to follow them, understands its rituals and the deep meaning of attributes, then this particular religion is ideal for this particular person. And not in such a way that this person gets acquainted with this religion, and then begins to follow it, but in such a way that a person lives as he lives, follows his own, independently formed ideals and has an independently acquired worldview, and then, after getting acquainted with the religion, he finds that it coincides with all this.
Without temples, churches, and mosques, it probably exists. For example, some indigenous religion in which its followers gather for rituals just in the field or to ask for help from higher forces go to the forest to look for a shaman… But without any paraphernalia at all-definitely not. One way or another, but at least it will have its own symbolism and name, because the elements of the teaching must somehow be combined into one whole.
