The Essence of Religion

Organized religion has gotten a bad rap by many over the years, and much of it is well deserved, in my opinion. There is the joke about spiritually evolved people getting excited about their understanding of the Spirit world, and the devil comes along and says, “Great, now let me help you organize that.” With organization came hierarchy, patriarchy, abuse, control, fear, sin, shame and the list goes on. Of course, there were some evil forces behind the organizing, to keep us in line, afraid, easy to control and manipulate. People actually became convinced that they themselves not only were not a part of God or the Divine, or that God was some judgmental dysfunctional man in the sky, but also that they needed to go through a priest or other male authority figure as a go between to connect with Source, even though most of these priests and hierarchy themselves were hardly living in align with the Divine. But let’s look at the roots of religion, the main beliefs or goals. Mayans Popul Vuh: Your are myself. We are all one. Christian: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Mathew 7.12 Buddhism: Do not offend others as you would not like to be offended. U’danavarga 5.18 Confucius: What we do not wish to be done to us, do not do to others. Annalects 15.23 Judaism: What you do not wish for yourself, do not wish for others. Talmud Shabbot 31.A Islam: No one will be a true believer, unless he wishes the same for others as for himself Sunnat Brahmannism (Hindu): Never do unto... read more

Volunteers, no Victims

First, let me be clear, in the deepest sense, or in reality, there are no victims, and actually, there is no death. I’ll address the death part next week, but regarding victimization, of course, in this world of drama and illusion, we have plenty of appearances of victim hood. And believe me, I have played the victim many times in this life. I’ve been spanked, robbed, assaulted, abused, attacked, run over, had cars stolen and many other apparent injustices. If we are not careful, these situations will define us as a victim, and lead to a fearful attitude towards life, and guess what, we attract energetically what we fear. We all know people who are on high alert, have alarm systems around their home, have locks everywhere, maybe live in a gated community, and still, somehow find a way to be assaulted or robbed. It is because they are putting fear out into the world, and attracting what they fear. But here is the truth, at least as I see it: there truly are no victims, only volunteers. Back home in the spirit world, we make agreements with others spirits before we come here to Earth. As spiritual, pure loving beings, we decide that it would be fun to come down here and experience what we are not, so each life we may decide to try to experience something like say, mistrust, or resentment, or blame, or the other side, being a perpetrator or yes, even a murderer. Like a well designed play or movie, we all have our parts, depending on what we choose to experience, or what... read more

The Disruptive Mind

I was backpacking in the Olympics in early August, and was sitting at a beautiful Lake Angeles, enjoying the sun and scenery. Next to me was a Meet Up group from Seattle, and they too were enjoying the moment. Then the mind took over. I heard one guy begin to talk about how long it took to get up the mountain, and then he estimate how long it would take to go back down. So suddenly, they were out of the present moment. They were focused on time, a trap of the mind. Then they started futurizing, how often do the ferries run, when does the last one leave. This was accompanied by just a slight bit of anxiety or fear or missing the ferry. Soon one person pulled out his phone and soon had the ferry schedule. More people got involved in the conversation, and soon there were few members of the group who were still present to the beauty in front of us. Of course, I felt a slight annoyance, as my own mind jumped in to consider them less zen than me, my judgment proving me wrong. The mind continued to funnel people’s energy out of the present moment, because to the egoic mind, the present moment is a threat you know. The egoic mind gets busted when presence or spirit shows up, as it realizes that it is over matched and underqualified to be leading our lives and controlling everything. So it distracts us from the present moment. Soon there was talk of food. Are you full? Did you get enough to eat? When do... read more
