"Christianity only has one deity (angel), Jesus. Hinduism has dozens of deities. In Omeganism, there are four, and each of these four deities has a different function. People need different deities for helping them with different moods, and different changes that happen throughout their lives. Having four deities means that people know who to pray to in different situations, but, unlike with Hinduism, they are not confused by have too many deities that are irrelevant, or too similar to other deities. The deities are explained in reverse order, with the Fourth Deity coming first. That's so you understand the story of my religion in a way that's similar to a history class."


The Fourth Deity {masculine/feminine}

If you've read other blogs, you'll recall me mentioning "The Fire". I was really talking about the violent, passionate, sensual energy of the Fourth Deity. In truth, the Fourth Diety represents every savage form of nature. She is untamed, wild, beautiful, but often very dangerous: either extremely masculine or feminine in a very weak and form: tempestuous, ever-changing and inconsistent.

We cannot live without nature. Nature is within us as well as outside of us. However, if everything were left to nature, there would be chaos. The Fourth Deity is savage. It seeks to destroy any social order that has grown arrogant or complacent, but can equally turn on the weak, the innocent and the beautiful. Therefore, we must respect the Fourth Deity, but control it.









The Third Deity {masculine}

The Third Deity is unmistakably masculine at times, but peculiar and contradictory, and a fairly young spirit compared with the older Fourth Deity. On the one hand, He is very wild, just like the Fourth Deity, but on the other hand, he can be very tight, controlling and rigid. The Third Deity represents work, crime and moral slavery. When one is a slave one is often reduced to the level of a wild animal. So by making us work, commit crimes, and punishing us for failure, the Third Deity is, oddly enough, doing the work of the Fourth.

One of the advantages of the Fourth Deity is that it sometimes left us alone and kept its distance. The Third Deity always feels the need to interfere in human affairs, often at the expense of true love and human dignity.


The Second Deity {feminine}

The Second Deity is not the most important deity, but, as the Deity of Supreme Love, She is the Deity I instinctively warm to. We say that this spirit is maternal and feminine, but also boyish in many other respects. The boy is an eternal explorer at play, reaching out into the future and we celebrate this grace through Her, the Second Deity.

The Second Deity is the Deity that represents the higher synthesis of the Earth's spirit, where love no longer contradicts discipline, and peace no longer contradicts war. All elements of being, of politics, of ecology, of human learning: all come together under Her command.

Unlike the Fourth Deity, the sensuality of the Second Deity is more consistently erotic and rooted in soft, nurturing pleasures of the flesh, often whispered lustfully in waves of intense detail and colour. She is also the re-assurance and comfort of friendship and the hope of secure and lasting love.


The First Deity {machine spirit}

The First Deity is cold, dark and aloof, harsh, painful and menacing: not strictly masculine, but more like a machine of power. He speaks in radio waves and electrical pulses as well as words. None of this "darkness" should be confused with "evil". To some people this might seem a strange image for a spiritual deity, because most people can only imagine a spiritual deity, or God, as being associated with love. But the power, the sheer crackle of electricity, is worth it. Going through the pain barrier to reach the dark spirit of the First Deity is one of the highest acts of wisdom, the point where logic and emotion meet.

Very little was revealed to me about the First Deity, much less than any of the others. However, what I did learn was brave and triumphant. The First Deity operates outside the field of normal human knowledge and beyond the sight of the average earth-dweller. The pain, however, is immensely liberating, and once one experiences it, the urge is strong to return to it. However, this is difficult, because of the spiritual frequency that this Deity makes use of.
