Celmarean Beliefs
The divine spirit is what it is; it cannot be fully described in any human terms. We can only speak of aspects of the divine spirit. Through Areu, we learn which aspects of life (like love and peace) are aligned with the will of the divine spirit.

It is a force that helps us identify impurities in ourselves and others. Even children can feel Areu, but we are most in touch with it when we reach the age of Kalmise. How we choose to respond to the impurity is our choice. Depending on the circumstances, we can cleanse it, destroy it, or avoid it. But we can never tolerate it.

Yes. You can choose to follow the will of the divine spirit, or choose not to. Even if we choose not to, which is not in our interest, the will of the divine spirit will eventually be done.

Yes. Good is anything aligned with the will of the divine spirit. Everything else is bad.

It is the real world beyond that which our minds are trained to see. But minds can be retrained.

It is when our physical body ceases to function and no longer binds us to this part of the spirit world. Is it the end of us? No.
