The spiritual journey is individual, highly personal. It can’t be organized or regulated. It isn’t true that everyone should follow one path. Listen to your own truth.” Ram Dass
All fixed, organized and regulated beliefs refusing to remain flexible and open to wider perspectives, casting out all non-believers, are fear-based and separatist. All fixed believers refusing to remain flexible and open to new perspectives are actually fearful of facing themselves not armed with a belief. Because what questions a belief and lifts its veils towards a wider, more unifying perspective, threatens the belief.
Religious institutions keep their “sinner” followers safe in heaven and from hell, while mainstream science keeps its advocates safe in their left-brained sanity, which in essence are reasonings that stem from the fear of stepping out of comfort zones, of searching for a deeper answer to the one they identified their lives with.
Trying to define yourself is like trying to bite your own teeth.” – Alan Watts
If mainstream science could come to terms with the fact that there is Truth that goes beyond logic, and if religions could rip off their labels and see that Truth is beyond dogma, both would find common ground through Spiritual/Metaphysical wisdom.
Hierarchy is an illusion, for we are all One in the end. This is the fundamental wisdom that can be studied in Nature, just as it is the root of religion, before it has been divided, manipulated and obscured by ego-driven principles. All souls will remember of this Oneness sooner or later, no matter how the ones in power will fight to distract Humanity from this Natural Truth of interconnectedness and divinity within all lifeforms. Truth lies within the consciousness of the Heart, no matter how it may be clouded by an oppressive mind.
God is the conscious energy of Unconditional Love, and Unconditional Love is of course challenging for the fearful ego that is holding on to the man-made myth of a “Jealous God”.
This is why the Truth has no economic value in an orchestrated society ruled by external needs. This is why dogmatic belief systems focusing on praising an external “savior” have been enforced to control and keep the mass from expanding towards the essence of who we are, and beyond all control mechanisms.
Rom 13:1,3-4,6 (NIV) Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established.”. Feel your Heart’s intuition that has been dismissed as “the voice of Satan” by religious doctrines, and tell me if this verse is man-made and based on fear, or if it is truly pure, transparent and genuine.
To the question of your life you are the answer, and to the problems of your life you are the solution.” – Joe Cordare
This is not an attack against the cultural diversity of our world, but it simply aims at demonstrating how each color of a rainbow is a facet of itself, is a facet of the whole. These beautiful colors are simply a manifestation of the very same Light which encompasses all colors, and which can only manifest itself in different forms for the sake of experiencing its Light in beautiful diversity.
This is a wonderful metaphor, because even the laws of nature tells us that color can only be perceived and played with because of its essence of Light. Without this very Light, colors wouldn’t exist, it wouldn’t be perceived by the eye. And as a matter of fact, the Light source of a rainbow is very unlikely to throw out one of its streak of colors for reasons mentioned in doctrines, for they are all facets of his own body.
We are a part of a whole.
“A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.
This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” – Albert Einstein
A perspective that is free of archaic dogma, fear, judgment, exclusiveness, and embracing the core essence of consciousness within all, just might be the one of our unconditionally loving God, yet it is this very simple Truth that will never be endorsed by money-driven government authorities.
I do not wish to judge others, but simply to create a unifying bridge through a simple perspective of Oneness. Oneness is not merely another box. It rather opens up to a tolerance and an unconditional Love which see’s past separation, duality, fear, hate, and judgment.
All men should ask themselves, before they die, what they are running away from, what they are running towards, and why. Because to heal and evolve is to understand that the very things we judge and are fearful of, are the very illusionary barriers that our souls yearn to fly through.
You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover is yourself.” Alan Alda
