I was driving home and heard on the radio that a new Church and religion was established based on the philosophies and beliefs of Kanye West. I’m not, nor have I ever been a fan of Kanye West so I am not trying to promote this new religion. To be honest, I’m not even sure if this is a joke, another one of Kanye’s elaborate art projects, or if this is for real. But, many have taken this seriously enough that there is now, a following of sorts for this new Church. For more information on the Church you can check out the link above.
The religion I was born into, would have me disregard this information completely. My birth religion taught me that no man shall CREATE a religion because it’s considered a sin. I don’t agree with Kanye West or others claiming that he is our modern day Savior. But, I must say, I am loving the 5 pillars that this religion abides by.
- All things created must be for the good of All
- No human being’s right to express themselves must ever be repressed
- Money is unnecessary except as a means of exchange
- Man possesses the power to create everything he wants and needs
- All human suffering exists to stimulate the creative powers of Man
This is obviously a time of awakening. The entire Universe is spewing an energy that is being transferred into the minds, hearts and souls of every living creature. I myself have completely changed my views and beliefs about religion and God. The way I was taught to believe in religion does not serve its purpose anymore. I understand the rules of religion, but, I believe in something deeper than just words written in multiple books. I believe in a higher power that exists within us, not just a higher power. I believe we have infinite potential as individuals and that we have been oppressed for many years in achieving that higher power. I believe, as humans, we have yet to tap into our infinite potential.
I don’t believe Kanye is our Savior, but I do believe this “new religion” has a point. So, I will sit back and watch as this unfolds and see what revolutions Yeezianty has to offer.
Time to reflect:
What do you think about Kanye West’s religion? Do you believe he’s onto something? Is this a ploy, hoax, joke or something to be taken seriously? Whatever the case, take the time to reflect on why this religion is coming out now, in this day and age. I think we need to look past the “religion” itself and focus more on the ultimate message it is trying to convey.
