followers of the teachings of faith that exists in the universe universal "power" can be managed by people who have reached a certain level of development.However, because this religion is still young, the well-established rules on how to achieve perfection does not exist yet.Some aspire to higher stages, using Taoist and Buddhist practices, while others believe that a daily view of the first trilogy (later versions do not have mystical properties) will sooner or later bring them to understand the essence of things.
Vudizm - The Church of Ed Wood
Hollywood director Ed Wood, recognized in 1980, "the worst director of all time" was rather unusual personality.His mother, who wanted a girl always, the son of a child dressed in the dress, leaving the boy acquired a passion for dressing.Even while serving in the army, he wore a form of women's underwear.In the early 50's Ed Wood moved to Hollywood and began to promote their film projects.Seek professional Ed did not consider it necessary, but because all his films produced by people unrelated to the cinema is not available.Sources of funding were also very funny.So, one of the bands sponsored the owner of a Texas slaughterhouse, and the other - Southern Baptist church, which had previously been forced to be baptized the whole crew.In the 70's Ed Wood became interested in shooting porn, and even the role played in some of them.Alas, none of the pictures taken are not a success.
Glory also came to the director after his death, thanks to the more eminent colleague, who shot a film about the life and work of Ed Wood.The budget picture is a hundred times greater than the cost of all the works of Wood, put together, and starring Johnny Depp.Despite the fact that the film flopped at the box office, he received Academy Award, Golden Globe and Saturn, and along the director has turned transvestite in a new "savior", a teaching tolerance and unconditional acceptance of reality.However, most of the "vudistov" often did not even look any film of his idol, because they really mediocre.
This religion is a prime example of what can do the taxi driver unexpectedly been involved for yoga.One day, sitting in the lotus position in his London flat, King George heard a voice from heaven announcing him: "Get ready, you will be a messenger of interplanetary parliament."George was not taken aback, quickly gathered around him like-minded people and began to preach to the inhabitants of the Earth's cosmic wisdom.The wisdom of this is the fact that all the planets of the solar system are inhabited, and Saturn sits space parliament, including caring and against the inhabitants of our planet.Member of Parliament, Mr. Aetherius, King chose to communicate through it to the earthlings important information about the work of interplanetary legislature.No conflicts with other religions from reading "Cosmic gospel" does not arise, since in their view, Jesus, Buddha, Rama, Krishna and others are just messengers cosmic brotherhood.

contact with the Elohim is quite simple - you just have to make a special meditation regularly.It's funny that while raelisty completely deny the spiritual component, viewing the world solely from the material point of view.God, as such, they do not exist.There are only supercivilization to achieve that level, and should seek earthlings.Therefore followers Claude welcome the introduction of technology into all areas of life, and at the same time feel good cloning, euthanasia, and sexual orientation.
founder flow Ryuho Okawa, first unsuccessfully dabbled in law and finance, and only then realized that much more money you can earn by designing your own religion.The company has been very successful: Okawa became a revered man in Japan, his company makes films and publishes books on how to achieve true happiness, and the number of believers is increasing.No wonder the popularity of Okawa not, because people promising to bring happiness to all mankind, will inevitably use the sympathy of others.In his books he writes that told him during a spiritual practice, Confucius, Buddha, Jesus and Mohammed, and these works are scattered all over the world a good circulation, but read a prediction that North Korea eventually invade Russia and colonized Japanpretty funny.Not so long ago Okawa created in Japan a political party, declaring it the main purpose of increasing the number of people in Japan and 300 million people.
