Help Put Pantheism Back On The Map

To all my followers and all those who may be interested, I decided to enter my personal pantheistic views into an online Facebook contest, held by the 92nd Street Y, that’s in search of a new religion, only I really wish they hadn’t referred to it as a religion! This could really help to put pantheism back on the map and other newer aged views higher up into the light! Of course pantheism is not a religion but rather an age old, broad, umbrella term that simply expresses the view that all is God (or that which is the causation of your existence). My entry expresses a more tailored version of pantheism, which I call panmeism. You can view it by clicking the link below.

The winning entries are partly determined by the number of ‘Likes’ it gets on the official 92Y Facebook Page (Liking this post doesn’t count but is also welcomed), so if you do like it, please click the link and then the ‘Like’ button they provide next to my entry. Thanks!

***UPDATE: Thanks to all the support I got, I received the highest number of Facebook LIKES/votes out of 329 entries! When the voting ended, I had over 3,800 LIKES, the highest by far! This placed me as one of the six semi finalists, so a big THANK YOU to all those who voted and LIKED my essay! For the second part of the contest, the semi finalists were asked to provide another essay (up to 2 pages) describing and expressing their ideas in more detail. Unfortunately, this second part of the contest or challenge was decided by a panel of “distinguished” judges who focused more on the option of a “new religion” (involving scheduled ceremonies, rituals, and organizing methods) and not so much on a “new philosophical framework” or “belief system” as they had originally described the contest. I had a chance to read the first essay submitted by the 1st place winner, and I thought it was a good choice. 2nd and 3rd place winners were good too in terms of designing a new religion involving ceremonies, rituals, and so forth. Anyway, it was a fun and exciting experience, and I just wanted to thank all those who gave me your vote and support.

About Guyus Seralius

I am one among many, but at the same time, I am unique and alone. I am a reflection of all that which surrounds me and all that deep within. I am a perceiving mind in human form. I am a metaphor for life itself, a representative of all things, and I am doing as the universe dictates. I am the forever traveler who wonders upon all grounds at all times. Though, I rest upon a rock that never moves. I am the infinite, cosmic tree, whose branches and roots never end, whose fruit is uncountable. I am the personification of The Forever All. In short, I am an artist, writer, philosopher, pantheist, and centrist, who hopes to make a positive change in the world.
