by which we measure our pain."
Our hearts are electromagnetic energy generators that not only emit life force, yet connect us to everyone and everything that expresses life.
We are made from the same chemical compounds that
are found throughout the galaxy and beyond. We have the potential to
transform any behavior pattern, thought and hereditary trait we may
experience. We have the capacity to create life and we possess the
ability to take it away.
Gradually we succumb to this "conditioning of the soul" and fall in line with common faith,
otherwise known as 'religion.' We become dependent upon this invisible
and imaginary force that, in some form or other, assumes the
commonly accepted countenance of God.
We believe to the extent that we have trust in the doctrines and practices more so than we have confidence in ourselves or our family and friends. The focus of our devotion toward our selected deity grows as our investment in our lives and in ourselves wanes.
We are diverted from our souls and into the arms of a social myth endorsed as "God."
At one point in history, a group of men had the idea to devise something that would allow them to be the "middle men" between God as they presented "Him" and the people.
They witnessed the blind and
rapturous devotion the people expressed in their exaltation of the
almighty focus of their faith. They monopolized on it in the name of
finance, politics, control, power and spiritual supremacy and
It is interesting to witness the superiority of the "testimony" of those who are in a position of faith when they express it to their fellowships.
It would seem that
the lessons being shared with their congregations dictate more of a
principle for following belief rather than learning how to establish
and maintain a union with their own spirit.
This reliance has built a barrier between our souls and us. It has isolated us from our potential, possibility and personal power. Our denial, unwillingness and fear have separated us from our relatedness with the natural flow of the universe.
We have enabled the publicity of God with our blind faith and hope instead of experiencing its fulfillment by establishing our own connection with our spirit and living our truth. We subscribe to follow the ministers of belief and sacrifice our choice to lead our own way.
Where we once stood with consciousness, we now kneel at the altar of acquiescence.
There is a vast difference between God as we may experience it and its perceptual depiction.
There is no one in the world that has the authority, let alone the ability to accurately quantify, identify and articulate what God is, or what it is not. Beyond all the meaning that humanity has attached to God, it is simply a word consisting of three letters.
It could be said that our own belief,
energy, devotion and loyalty are the very elements that have given
the concept of God its power. It is our denial, fear and
unwillingness to acknowledge, adopt and accept our potential for
spirituality that has made the assumed existence of God
It is human kind.
It could be said that God doesn't need belief.
We experience life and the world through our own perceptual filter we have established in our lives. We can begin to acknowledge that everything we have ever experienced of God is only that which we have learned or can relate to within ourselves. It could be said that there is little difference between God and a human being. We can create.
We can destroy. We can express
righteousness. We can cast judgment. We can bless others with our
love and we can curse then with our hate (fear).
We are the guides of our own spirituality. We
are all of which we look to God. We are the manifestation of God.
