In other words, to that point in history when our nature and spirit led celebrations of the miracle of life were superseded by the intellectualization and compartmentalization of such experiences under the specific control of an authoritative body:
Tragically, this false compartmentalization of the spiritual has played a key role in keeping mankind locked away from the universality of spirit which is our birthright and true potential.
So much so that it has been possible to foment crusading wars in the name of all-powerful sectarian gods and the blind faith which devotees hold in them.
Millions have been, and
continue to be, murdered in the name of the leading religions of our
era, stretching back for centuries. For those who see themselves as
free from 'religious' persuasions, money and power provide the
latest totem of worship, but in truth this totem is followed with
all the same blind belief as that to be found in religious cults.
Here, the mark of the cross is symbolically drawn on our innocent foreheads by the priest whose finger is first dipped in sacred water deemed to form a direct link to John the Baptist's initiation of Jesus Christ in the waters of the river Jordan some 2,000 years ago.
In the eyes of
church - we are then one of its children. A condition which can later be endorsed
by participation in the Christian confirmation ceremony of
our early teens.
Religion and the church having already
defined the scope of our spirit for us, so that all we are supposed
to do is dutifully follow the script.
Just witness the current vilification of
Islam (and by extension Iran) by the Judeo-Christian
Washington who use such vilification to incite hatred which in turn
provides a useful alibi for establishing acts of military
While there can certainly be cross-over between the religious and the spiritual, the reality is that,
...which can be tapped by all of humanity
and which is free of dogma.
Many adherents of the various 'spiritual paths' on offer in to-days world, seem to feel that it is not their place to get involved in taking direct action on behalf of this Great Spirit.
In fact, they misguidedly see activism as contradictory to maintenance of the spiritual path. Many appear to feel exempted from having to take action to ameliorate the wrongs perpetrated upon our physical, mental and political World.
This is a great error of judgment in my view.
While personal spiritual pursuit may cause a bright light to
shine in one's own world, it nearly always fails to turn that light
onto our oppressors in the physical world. It is due to this failure
that our oppressors have largely got away with carrying on unimpeded
in their progressive enslavement of mankind and the destruction of
the environment which supports all life on earth.
However, to actively campaign for
political, ecological or material change for the better requires
that we confront the reality face to face, in order to know exactly
what it is we are up against. Holding a fear that taking such a
position might become an impediment to maintaining the peaceful
vibratory levels achievable for example, in deep meditation,
provides a false assessment of the truth.
Spirituality thus takes on the
appearance of a cosseted precious gem stone or delicate flower, the
outward expression of a protective inner world which shuns contact
with that which appears to be at odds with its supposed state of
While such cartels are busy wielding their destructive powers upon our planet and upon our daily lives, those on the supposed path of 'higher awareness' all too often do nothing to apprehend the imposition of such a regime.
Wittingly or unwittingly, they remain complicit in supporting the status quo:
This is an innately hypocritical position:
Leaving the forces of corruption unchallenged is simply not possible if one is truly following the spiritual path.
On the contrary, the entre onto the
spiritual path is achieved through committing to do one's utmost to
free our planet from bondage and to protect that which is our
Creator's work in all ways possible to us. If this means unmasking
and exposing that which is blatantly dishonest, then this is what
must be done.
Only when the inner work of spiritual practice is coupled to the outer work of activist involvement can we find the balance which once again unites the spiritual and the practical and makes us whole. Both must be entered into fully, for in reality they are two parts of one whole; just as an inhalation of breath is not separate from its exhalation.
Why do we need to divide? That is the
route of our oppressors.
At the quantum point of engagement every
cell in our body is now recognized as an intelligent being in its
own right. A being having all the same intelligent faculties as the
individual human being, but in microscopic form. The spirit courses
through these cells in a manner indiscernible and inseparable from
their cellular atomic structure. Everything that exists is at once
spirit and material in simultaneity. The material is simply a third
density expression of spirit.
I am not describing the 'vengeance'
sought in the case of “an eye for an eye a tooth for a tooth” but
the burning pain one feels out of empathy and compassion for a
sentient life force which is being subjected to unreasonable
Their actions are the spontaneous
expression of all that is Godly in us. To ignore, suppress or
subvert such a response is to deny the free expression of this
