I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.
There is an event held RELIGIOUSLY EVERY Sunday in almost every culture concerning the nature of MAN. This event is connected to the story that goes man was made with a void in his spirit/heart and nothing in this world can fill this void. This void is a representation of our disconnection to a higher being/power; and in order for us to get connected to this source, we attend church. Church has become the place that makes EVERYTHING okay because we are there as a community worshiping AND supposedly serving GOD…right?Talk about compassion in chains huh? As we seek to block the outside world, aren’t we hurting ourselves in the process? I mean doesn’t church invariably hamper the development of conscience, thus preventing that much needed community togetherness? Most that tend to seek GOD’s face tend to externalize compassion into a set of rules and laws, which gives us NO compassion for mankind @ all. TRUE compassion is a matter of conscious choice, and that requires the absence of force-backed rules and laws…two things the church can’t seem to function without…So is any wonder that that more religious a person becomes, the less compassionate s/he is?
In my experience, religious people tend to be the most bigoted AND non-accepting people on earth. They’re the least trustworthy and suffer from the grossest character defects. They pretend they’re doing good; but they’re really collaborators in a system designed to push people into the illusion where compassion substitutes for the real thing. Historically speaking, religious people loved to fight each other. Instead of unconditional love for mankind, they practice conditional loyalty. The only unconditional aspect is their thirst for blood. If you disagree with them, you’re a target…I WISH that I felt sorry to say this, but IF YOU VALUE THE IDEA OF UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, YOU WON’T FIND IT IN THE PRACTICE OF RELIGION. REAL COMPASSION DOESN’T ARISE FROM BELIEVING IN GOD OR PRACTICING VARIOUS RITUALS EVERY SUNDAY. COMPASSION CAN ONLY RESULT FROM CONSCIOUS CHOICES & THIS REQUIRES THE FREEDOM TO CHOOSE WITHOUT THE THREAT OF PUNISHMENT OR THE PROMISE OR REWARD…If you’re obedient to your faith, it’s a safe bet that you operate on VERY little compassion in your life. F&CK, you probably don’t even know what real compassion feels like…The more we collectively abandon all religion, the better off this planet will be. This doesn’t mean we have to abandon all spiritual pursuits. It just means we must stop turning spirituality into something it isn’t.
So whatever side of the divide you fall on, can you honestly say that you are fulfilling your deepest insatiable yearnings AND desires? As SO many of us escape from each other on a day like this, my question is can we, as human, ever feel REAL happiness?Could we ever be stable OR content? If this ESCAPE was working out SO well, why haven'tHELL-BOUNDpersons like me sought your path?If this is the true essence of humanity is it possible to break the curse of this void and if so how? I say YES WE CAN! However it would call for us to work together without the interference of religion…Makes sense to me…Our destinies are one of the greatest assets we possess, so we serve ourselves well when we are careful to always make decisions that are reflective of both the values we hold dear and the goals we hope to someday accomplish as a community. We should not let our sure approach to potentially life-altering decisions interfere with the spirituality of this world. This OLD ASS story we read each AND every Sunday simply hoards on deprivation AND we only isolate ourselves and shut out others. We hoard love AND energy, thinking we will be richer if we keep to them to ourselves, when in truth we make the world, and ourselves, poorer whenever we greedily stockpile our reserves…
I KNOW THERE ARE SOME OUT THERE THAT WOULD SAY I AM ONLY BLAMING RELIGION & I AM BECAUSE YOU GUYS CAST THE FIRST STONE & I FEEL THE CHANGE HAS TO START WITH YOU GUYS. EVERY SUNDAY YOU SEEK TO EXPERIENCE THAT MAGICAL TWILIGHT BETWEEN YOUR DREAMS & WAKING STATE, SO I AM HOPING THAT YOUR CONSCIOUS & SUBCONSCIOUS COULD HAVE A MEETING OF THE MINDS & FIND SOME COMMON GROUND. IN THE INTERSECTION WHERE OUR BODY & SOUL MEETS OUR PHYSICAL HEART BEATS IN TIME WITH THY RHYTHM OF THE UNIVERSE…TUNE IN!
