Deconstructing Docterine

There’s a major difference beween Faith and religion. And unfortunately, for the Faithful there seems to be a trap they have been pulled into, which may be robbing them of the inherent teachings and spritual wellbeing that the God they believe in has offered them.

The teachings are founded in compassion and love, for all around and that person within, salvation isn’t about guilt, it’s about growth. And the closest one can be to god is to commune with nature itself.

For those that follow any teachings, they are taught that they are not worthy of the Love that is offered and that the path to truth and salvation is through persistent self punishment. Humans are ever separated by the docterines they follow from the Spritual growth and advancement that we have been offered.

Religious institutions were originally people that were like minded building a community to share and help each other grow, and have degraded into twisted groups that preach black and white ideals in regards to a subject that is infinite and non-visceral.

Those ideals tend towards unattainable knowledge for the masses and only a select few that have access to rewards. They peddle hope in exchange for poverty and suffering. This is not what Faith is about, and although I’m apostate, I can tell you that intentionally bringing suffering to the lives of others is completely contrary to a godly life.

Every foundational teaching in every religion states that all humans are capable of bringing miracles, and that all humans are allowed to walk to the god conciousness. We are all welcome, no matter the creed. Faith and meditation or prayer are combined to bring us closer to being godly, and becoming more than lowly guilt ridden corporeal scum.

And to become enlightened, to have the “christ mind” or achieve nirvana by being buddha, is all the same, and all very personal. Each person experiences the world in a different way, and to say that it’s wrong to experience the Infinite in a different way is arrogant and misleading.

To Love is the first step,

To see all as connected is the second step,

To see Oneself as part of the Infinite is the third

To understand that oneself is a drop in an endless ocean (the removal of ego) is the fourth

To accept the above list is the fifth

After this, is where the Christ mind or Buddha or Bodhisatva comes into play, and where science is a tool.

We are made of the same stuff as everything in the Universe.

We are the Universe consiously experiencing itself.

We now beginning to measure the little particles that we are made of, and that have been spoken about in different cultures for millenia.

We are now understanding that we can manipulate these things with machinery.

But, How about with our own being?

What are we missing that the ancients had?

Faith.

They didn’t teach docterine and how to tithe, or mess with politics.

They taught enlightenment, and said that all are welcome, all deserve Love, compassion and inclusion. But the price to go there is to give the same love and compassion and inclusion that you wish to recieve.

We teach partriarchal idealism, and hierarchy. My god is bigger than his god, I’m right you’re wrong, you are dirty and don’t deserve Love, and compassion is only for the biggest contributor to the intitution.

Exclusive God clubs, that happily promote violence and hatred towards other exclusive god clubs, and thrive off of the most vulnerable in order to propell them to some higher sociopolitical gain.

If your “Messiah” were to stand in front of you, would you recognise that person? How would you treat that person? Just remember that while you walk around day to day, that the person that is put here to save your soul will most likely be the person to prove your hypocracy and let you see the hatred you bear, they will hand you your ego in a way that will make you fall to your knees, and beg for forgiveness.

The person that will judge you, will not be God, nor will it be a messiah, it will be you. You will see yourself in your true form, you will feel the consequences of every decision you have made, and you will understand how much power you have over the world and you will either regret or rejoice in your life’s work.

Do you use your power to better society, or better your personal gain? Have you found balance in a fair and just manner, or do you serve your ego.

If hell is a thing, I would assume that it would be to live the experiences that others have had of you, and you would have to live those experiences until there was understanding.

Some souls would learn, some would ask for another chance, and others would stay, and sadly never move on.

The push for Ancient Aliens to be the architects of civilizations prior, is the continuation of an idea that humans are somehow incapable of becoming more without intervention.

If your messiah were to stand before you and tell you that you need to change the course of human history immediately, would you tell that person that they are wrong? Because you believe in docterine? Because of blind faith in institutions and conformity due to fear of letting go, or fear of change? Because of greed and selfishness, or just plain apathy?

Maybe you don’t have the time to sit down and think about the future of your children, who sit at home wishing that you wouldn’t be working so much to pay for stuff that you don’t need to keep up with your ego fuelled battle with the neighbors down the road. All they want is for you to come home and play with them, and smile sometimes, and maybe read them a book.

Who cares if it’s Harry Potter? A boy that has the empowerment to take care of himself and the people around him? Why can’t a boy have magical powers to save the world from evil? Sounds like another boy or two in history… Why can’t we inspire our children to save the world, and use their gifts for the betterment of everyone?

Humans have so much potential and every time we are offered that opportunity to grow, there are people that fear a loss of power, that manipulate us to continue on the path we are on. The prophesies that were given to us were a warning, not a truth. And now we have people that feel that they are the tools of a self fulfilling prophesy.

We have little time left, before we end it all, and I truely wonder, if once again we will kill off the next messiah, for the sake of our egos and pocket books. We are killing the future of our grandchildren in order to prove everyone else wrong. I don’t think that’s godly.

I don’t believe in religion, but I do believe in Faith, and although I’m slowly losing Faith in humanity, I have Faith in myself, and Faith in Love, and I have above all, Faith that there is still a chance for us to see each other as we are, and accept each other in a way that is real, founded on truth, and not marred by ego.

If there is a god, I believe that those traits are what actually counts, and no matter the creed or ideology, that the path to being a Whole Human, or Holy… is to give to the world what you wish to recieve, that intent is as powerful as action.

What’s your secret gift to the world?

We all have so much to bring to the table, and we are all limited by many different circumstances. Some of us know that we have something to offer, but aren’t sure what it is, and others know what we have but have no idea how to present it.

It seems that more often than not I see call to take action for an overwhelming amount of things, and I wish I had the time and energy to tackle all of them, but sadly, I’m just one person. Does anyone else feel this way too?

I try to focus on the things that I know stuff about, or have experienced directly, or impending doom bills being passed through the government, but it all seems a touch inadequate, and the relentless sharing of posts on social networking may actually be putting everyone off of everything now.

Most people with some level of social intelligence are aware we need change and given the opportunity to speak on any given subject, can point out what is wrong, and even offer suggestions on how to resolve the problem. But, that seems to be where it stops.

Oddy enough in my idealistic early 20’s insteda of just ranting about things or writing a diary, I began to write letter to the editor, then letters to the local transit authority, or my local political person at whichever level that was appropriate. I would make sure the letters were less rants and more I’ve noticed, and it’s frustrating. And is there a possibility if….

Letters to the Editor sparked dialogue.

Letters to the transit authority created new bus routes where there were none, and fixed redundant routes.

Letter to politicians (civic seem to be the best) at least get answered.

So I guess my secret gift is writing to random people I don’t know asking questions, and offering solutions. I don’t care if they take my expressed one, just consider it, and then I can be excited if any changes are made that relate to what I wrote about. My little inner voice shouts yay!! I made a little change!

So… I want to know what other people’s little secret gifts to the world are, and maybe why they aren’ using them the way they would like to.

Have a happy!!

TL;DR that holy text

I’m going to touch on a very sensitive issue today, and at the risk of angering many people, and possibly getting put on a list somewhere, this is something that I feel that I need to say. I will try to be a gentle as possible, but as the subject illicits a lot of emotions, it’s bound to upset, but I wont apologise because it’s the truth.

First of all, I’m going to put it out there. I’m not only at a minimum agnostic, leaning towards atheism, but I am also guilty of apostasy. I’ve renounced my baptism and confimation in any and all houses of worship.

It isn’t faith that I have a problem with. What I have a problem with is the corrupt and twisted ideals spawned by religious institutions that has turned faith into socio political tools that are abused, and abuse the innocent peoples of the world, selling hope for just a piece of ones financial wealth, and long term wellbeing. And the fallout is becoming ever more costly to humanity at large.

Faith in and of itself is a deeply personal thing, and I support and respect any person that has faith in something greater than them, providing that faith doesn’t lead that person to cause harm to other beings.

We are currently in a situation in the world where there is a massive conflict of ignorance, both willful and forced, using the many names of a higher power. But what most people on all three sides of the conflict are ignorant of, is that they are all the same religion, but all have different interpretations of the original script (see Torah or Old Testament), the middle script (see New Testament) and the final script (see Quran).

As you read this you may be asking what I’m talking about.

The three largest religions of the world and all of their subsequent denominations are the same religion, same god, same basic values, and oddly enough the same amount of violent zeal. And all are inspired originally by: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zoroastrianism

Judaism, Christianity and Islam are all the same, and most people follow as the religion of their repective geographic region practises as a general rule.

All values are the same, and although most followers around the world are moderate, there are unfortunately people that follow paths that are not only extreme, but also completely contrary to the values and morals laid out in the texts before them.

TL;DR

Dear humans: Be good to each other. If you have faith, then treat all land and all living things as Holy, as they were made by your god. Period.

You are all supposed to turn the other cheek, and are forbidden to compell or coerce other people into your religion. Period.

You are to love, and express faith through charity, and compassion regardless of another person’s differences. Period.

It’s all the same god folks, and you are killing each other which is forbidden. You are killing innocents which is also forbidden. Period.

Anything outside of this, is a lie to lead you away from your definition of heaven.
