BELIEF IS ACTIVE: HOW WE LEARNED TO WORSHIP AS PEOPLE

Bible on Stand Between Candles Inside Hall

“God culture.”


how we came to belief

As humans evolved we came to understand there must be some form of force that is greater than I, that keeps us all in alignment. And in that moment we designed a culture around our belief systems. We have forever wondered why we are here on Earth. No other planet in our reachable distance can life sustain like here on Earth. So we have for the longest felt there must be some type of divinity connected to living on Earth. So where did our beliefs initially come from? Do we have it as a human, or is there something that placed our belief in us? Whatever the reason, we have for thousands of years built our cultures around the idea that our beliefs are active.

methods of worship

Anthropologist still today unearth sites where early humans have used spots to praise some form of God. It must have been a little more majestic, but today there is nothing mroe than just a large group of rocks, stones, and dried out mud. But at the time, there were much larger monuments that were indoor and outdoor venues. We preserve things today, but in the past not so much so. Reason being is that we never thought that life would change from that existence we were living. So you get a chance to see how people built structures, and designs that served as a grounds for prayer. The designs in itself represented the belief, where some places aligned itself with the stars in the sky or even the seasons.

devolving beliefs

As more and more time progress, the idea of our beliefs system shift form higher power, to the idea that this is it. And it (past beliefs) becomes part of the culture that we study today for the future. Humans are an evolving creature and are knowing more and more because our minds are expanding. Who knows what our culture will be based around in hundred or even 1,000 more years. But it will not be the present belief that we have today.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
