What if you worshiped the future?
I was thinking about worship and how various religions ask us to direct our worship.
Depending on your brand of Christianity your prayers may vary:
- For some you are to humble yourself to God and beg that he/she hears you
- For others you are not to ask anything really just to be a good servant
- You can pray to accept the suffering God throws at you without explanation.
- Or you can pray to maintain the “entitlements” that your are given for being one of the faithful.
I suppose there are others.
Shinto religion give prayers to dead ancestors.
Buddhist sects vary too with some seeing deities as manifestations of consciousness.
So I just thought, what if we prayed to our FUTURE generations? I don’t think there is a religion who does that yet.
The short version would go something like this:
“I pray to the future generations that I may be worthy of being their ancestor.”
So, my question is how would that type of prayer affect you?
I’d love to know.
