Buddhism, Native American spirituality and Scientology are compared to Christianity in this paper. Although there are obvious differences among the religions, there are similarities such as they all want the best outcome for the person suffering from an illness. All healthcare workers and providers want what is best for the patient by respecting their religious views and cultural background. Health Care Provider and Faith Diversity There are different religions and spiritual beliefs within the health care system because of the different backgrounds and belief systems of the patients. This can be a difficult concept for health care providers taking care of these patients.
The healing hospital paradigm involves healing the client as a whole. This involves not just curing the disease. The paradigm’s focus is to address the patient and family’s cognitive, emotional, and spiritual well-being. In the hospital setting, barriers and stressors must be overcome to create a healing environment. This paper focuses on the paradigm of the healing hospital, examines its influence on the care giving process, and details the components in terms of spirituality.
Christian CBT is mainly based on clear integration, which involves direct use off divine resources. The stages of prayer include a prayer for protection and petitioning for healing power of the Holy Spirit, making the client feel relaxed, and allowing the client to recollect traumatic past events. It also involves petition for ministration of the Holy Spirit, waits for the Holy Spirit to minister to the client, ends the session in a joint prayer, briefly discusses the healing experienced by the client and recommends guidelines for personal prayers. The therapist should focus on correct interpretation of Scriptures and use appropriate guidelines during counseling. The use of Scriptures should be guided by the reason behind
The belief and believers are what make up any religion.l They are what keep the structure of religion in order to continue its existence. The beliefs of a religion are defined as the faith, trust and confidence in a tenet or creed. The believers are those who are empowered by faith, trust and confidence of the religion. For example, in Christianity, Christians are the believers of God and live by God’s will to spread His word. A living, dynamic religion integrated with the belief and believers is the ability to incorporate a religions beliefs into a more modern context to suit the current believers without sacrificing the principle values.
This is a good quote because she is specifically giving herself comfort in the fact that, God is always with her, and as long as she has God on her side, not too much can really go wrong, which then brings about the main philosophy that, God has a plan for everyone, as long as you keep your faith in him. Mary Rowlandsons’ philosophy of religion is a representation of the puritan era as noted in the
An open and nonjudgmental mind is required to provide culturally sensitive and competent care. Christianity and Buddhism are two worldviews that are both very popular, yet have different spiritual outlooks. The following paper will discuss both worldviews in respect to the seven common worldview questions, common components between the two and healing, and what is important to the patients of faith when cared for by those of different faiths. The paper concludes with a personal note on the spiritual perspective on healing, what was learned from the research and how it applies to the health care provider. Worldview Questions When defining worldviews, seven questions must be answered.
This paper will explain the components of a healing hospital, how these components relate specifically to spirituality and the challenges of creating a healing hospital. Components of a Healing Hospital and Relationship to Spirituality There are many components of a healing hospital. Each component corresponds to creating an environment that allows a person to heal psychologically, physically, and spiritually. According to Samueli Institute, 2011, an optimal healing environment includes manipulating internal, interpersonal, behavioral, and external environments in order to promote healing (Ananth, 2011, p. 2). By creating a healing environment in each of the environments, a patient will be able to heal and be “whole.” According to Samueli Institute, in order to be healing, each environment has two objectives to meet, internal: “develop healing intention” and “experience personal wholeness,” interpersonal: “cultivate healing relationships” and “create healing organizations,” behavioral: “practice healthy lifestyles” and “apply collaborative medicine,” and external: “build healing spaces” and “foster ecological sustainability” (Ananth, 2011, p. 2).
“Let us go so that I may proclaim the message there also; as that is what I came out to do” (Mark 1:38). He was simple and sensitive and saw things from a different light. This means Jesus had a gift of understanding others and their needs. An example in Mark 5 is when a crowd is pressing on Jesus and a woman who suffered from hemorrhages felt her whole body heal. Jesus is aware of the power whom had gone forth from him and that her faith had been made well.
Buddhists do not turn to him looking for salvation: “A Buddhist does not seek refuge in the Buddha with the hope that he will be saved by his personal purification” (Thera, 2012). A god provides their followers with support and strength in their times of need, and Buddhism takes this idea of finding salvation in a god to finding salvation in oneself through self-realization and reflection. It teaches Buddhists that they are responsible for their own purification. They turn to themselves to find strength in place of praying to a god. They strive to achieve redemption through meditation: “Instead of petitional prayers, there is meditation that leads to self-control, purification, and enlightenment” (McGhee, 2013).
He was a man who taught a path to enlightenment from his own experience. Buddhism is a belief system which is tolerant of all other beliefs or religions. Buddhism agrees with the moral teachings of other religions but Buddhism goes further by providing a long term purpose within our existence, through wisdom and true understanding. Real Buddhism is very tolerant and not concerned with labels like 'Christian', 'Muslim', 'Hindu' or 'Buddhist'; that is why there have never been any wars fought in the name of Buddhism. That is why Buddhists do not preach and try to convert, only explain if an explanation is sought.
