In some cultures, religion is the platform for ethical and moral standards. However, it goes beyond that today. Besides creating values that people live by, spirituality helps individuals connect to something outside of themselves. It also provides an avenue for socialization and the formation of communities with a common attribute or goal.
There are people with varying cultures across the world. As people realized human life couldn’t exist outside of itself, they embraced spirituality. That made various individuals look for ways to connect with other realms and beings based on their beliefs and peculiarities. This method led to the establishment of multiple deity ideas and what they represent, thus, the diversity.
Contrary to what people think, diversity is an asset in every society. Inclusion is a significant precursor to productivity and innovation in every space, whether a community or organization. Thus, it shouldn’t be an excuse to push away or ignore some persons or groups, but to embrace them. The first step is fostering adequate communication, then providing equal opportunities.
It’s essential to understand that there are peculiarities to different religions. One such thing is that while some worship various deities, others believe in only one God. We call this phenomenon ethical monotheism, and the basic ones are Islam, Judaism, and Christianity. They profess to know only one God and thus, recognize Him as a supreme being.
Most spiritual practices and religions give a special place to prayer as an essential activity. That’s because it’s how people communicate with the spiritual while in their physical state. Thus, individuals perceive it to be an avenue for connection to a deity. Generally, it helps project their needs and shows dependence on a god. They also believe it attracts blessings.
