HOW YOU CAN FREE YOURSELF FROM RELIGION:
There is only one way. But there is a way.
You must understand… who is “God”… For this, you need to go back to the origin of the God story on earth. There is a “God” story. It has an origin. It has a root. It has a time. It has a place. And there are traces leading back to that “event”. You need to know what was this event. Without this understanding, you will fumble in the dark. Your life through. Never certain. Never sure.
That door is not easy to open.
After millennia of control over humanity, religion has mastered the skill of hiding the door behind massive walls of indoctrination, dogmas, doctrines, and…. fear. Every inquiry, every question, every hole, every opening, every glimpse of enlightenment… is quickly plugged… with words and with swords. Every second of the day, society “normalizes” in your body, mind, and soul an imaginary realm. What you are taught about nature, the world, and yourself reflects this fictitious “empire of the unreal”.
To free yourself from religion is not easy. But it can be accomplished. Those who don’t want to know… also don’t want you to know. Then… how, without a primary Creator, has the universe come into being… or, exists today?
A REFLECTION ABOUT THE SOURCE OF OUR EXISTENCE:
About the game of life: Deep down, all of our thoughts, desires, words, actions, reactions, values, feelings, wellness of mind and body, originate and rise from a Primary Foundation.
But what if we are playing the games of life by rules that do not apply?
Religion, for millennia, has been promoting the notion that a God is our Primary Foundation. In God reside the blueprints to the design, purpose and meaning of our existence. God dictates. We serve, obey and worship God.
Many, unable to circumvent religion’s mind boggling/ bungling inconsistencies, look to science for answers. Science, with telescopes and microscopes, measures the immensities looking for a point of origin to creation. But such a point of entry and the “Hand” behind it remains a mystery.
Then, there is philosophy. Philosophers (used to) ask and reflect upon the “deeper” questions concerning the origin, purpose and meaning of life. But, philosophy has fallen on hard times; its reflections are said to be archaic, arcane, and irrelevant.
Religion claims that God is real. Science will get there when it gets there. Philosophy’s searchlight is turned out. Then, silence. But, what if we want to know? What if we want to make sense of our existence?
The journey: Many long seasons ago, I observed a universe that did not operate in accordance with the “official” explanations promoted. What existed appeared to be functioning very well on its own. There had/has to be applicable answers to the mechanism of existence. And… I realized that to get there, a major and complete shift in our foundational paradigms needed to occur.
A book: Along the way, I wrote reflections, discoveries, notes, and the “what does it all mean?” in a book entitled A Natural Philosophy.. – A Natural Philosophy is available on Amazon
THE FIRST PARADIGM (SHIFT):
A… Primary Being… Creative Event… First Instant… NEVER existed?
We move the date and time of “creation” to (the)…
Think about it: It is now. It is now. It is now. It is always now. The only “space/time” that is always “there/here” is the Now. A Now must always be, must have always been. Having always been, the Now was not created. And… having always been, the Now is eternal. Being everywhere, the Now is infinite.
The Now is the Primary Foundation,
The Now is the Primal Source.
The Now is the Creator.
The Now forces creation into existence.
The first Principle: In its totality, completeness, wholeness, the Now is ONE. In its multiplicity of forms, the Now is all. One into all incessantly, infinitely. divides. All into One incessantly, infinitely return. To divide implies motion. Except that the Now cannot move. The Now cannot jump ahead of itself. The Now must remain still. The mechanism: As One divides into all… at the same time… all collapse into One. A pulse is emitted… Life… at the very same time… a counter pulse is emitted… Death.
Thus, the first all-encompassing “Principle”: Everywhere… continuously, incessantly… Life/Death, Life/Death, Life/Death. – The Now is a singular Source/event engendering a binary pulse… the “light (spark) of life”… which it immediately extinguishes… the darkness of death. Yet, we and “creation” are here and continue to be here.
Existence/ Duration: All become. All disappear. Yet… something (a residue) remains. A middle: Creation, existence. How? At the moment that Life is erased by Death… Life comes back stronger… with more Power, with more Force… and… pushes against Death… a space opens… we inhale… Death comes back with more Power/ Force… pulls back Life… the space collapses… we exhale. Vibration by vibration, fragment by fragment… after being born, the Now holds for an instant, an hour, a decade, a century, a millennium…. universes, rivers, grains of sand, thoughts, people… and… at the same time and over time, all collapses. The middle, the residue, is where the battles for form and duration (space and time) occurs.
The central, the focal point, is the – one at a time – creation, maintenance, and deletion of all that exists… (was… will be).
“To and fro, every human being dances until body and mind fold back… into One. To and fro, every tree, every flower, and every blade of grass dance until water, soil, and sun run no longer through their roots and leaves. To and fro, every sun dance until it can no longer separate morning from night and all that was under its care has dried up. To and fro, every life-form dances until the thought that conceived it, fades into the Source. And then, all begins anew. And in this instant.” (A Natural Philosophy p. 44 )
Of space/time fields of play: Yesterday existed… but it does not exist anymore… yet we remember that it did. What existed, for the most part, is still here. This space/time residue – existence’s filaments of presence – is in fact a vast Memory; a Memory made of fields of smaller memories, of added creations, of dying forms. As Life/Death stretches and contracts, patterns can be detected, identified, named. The patterns are the laws of nature. The laws of existence. Our human laws.
We do not live outside of these laws.
Your “power” in this instant comes from the Now having to become, to end… yet having to remain. Each and every one of your thoughts, each and every one of your words, each and every one of your actions… every one and everything that you see, hear, smell, taste, and touch… is formed in and by that “matrix”.
Everywhere is the center of the Now. Every speck of cosmos is a center at the center of the Now. You are a center at the center of the Now. There are infinite numbers of centers. Through a multitude of games… games of mind, games of body, games of soul… we become, we remain, we end.
Meaning and purpose: In the Now, all of the ingredients that compose One are included in all… from people to animals, trees, flowers, grains of sand, and specks of dust. One is in all, all is in One. Consciousness, intelligence, intelligent “life”, are universal ingredient; they are manifest in everything, everywhere. – As the two pulses act at the same time, essence is substance, cause is effect, mind is matter. – The pulses transform One into all and reunify all into One. At all times. it is us. It is what we do.
Form is mind in interaction, in reflection with the temporal and the infinite.
THE SECOND PARADIGM (SHIFT):
How have we come to believe in the existence of a God?
Yes, “God” existed… but… he was not who we have made him to be.
Re-adjusting our looking glasses: What if… the biblical prophet Ezekiel heard, saw and described breaking through the sky and coming down to earth in a tumult of noise and lightning a real nuts and bolts physical craft commanded by a physical being sitting on a seat (throne)?
“The first fact we face when we begin to survey the historical documents is that there was not only one “God” but many gods, present on earth, in those days. Yet, we have made it dogmatically “untouchable” to admit to the existence of other gods; we have brushed them under the truth’s carpet. We want all these gods to be imaginary. Our history books present them as mythological figures. Images in dreams. – We have turned a magnificent past into illusions and fairy tales. The second fact that becomes quickly evident when examining the ancient documents is that the gods, including our “God”, were beings of flesh, blood, and bones. It is only with the passage of the millennia that the gods became ethereal figures. And the third fact that the same texts make clear – the truth that confuses us so much and has sent us into astronomical loops over the millennia – is that the gods descended unto earth, from the heavens. The heavens being the skies above our heads”. A Natural philosophy p. 190, 191.
After a time on earth, the gods departed. People lifted their eyes upward and scrutinized the heavens. And, they waited… prayed… remembered… offered sacrifices…Thus began… and the long wait for the return of the magnificent ones… and the transformation of facts into memories, into reconfigured stories, into religions. – Over the generations, over the millennia, the descent of gods from the sky unto earth, their accomplishments, their relationship with humanity and their “words” have been reinterpreted and distorted to the point of being completely unrecognizable. And, with more time, more isolation, more reinterpretation, more refining, one of the many gods, a being issued from the womb of nature, was raised to the high post of “Supernatural” Supreme Being: (God).
And that was/is God. For certain.
Origin. Concept. Name. Idea. Definition. Locale.
Religion: The words of the gods/God, though important to the people of the olden days, perhaps even to the people of today, have nothing at all to do with who, why, and how we are at Source.
Science: “Don’t know yet”. “Wait”. “Evidence is forthcoming”.
Philosophy: Philosophy has closed its mind’s eyes.
It’s about you: You are a center of existence, a point of being, a point of radiance, a point of creation, where thoughts and senses weave the fabric of the eternal instant… where and when you receive and give the elemental and the formed. As it unfolds, the Now reveals itself. Then it folds. Again, it reveals itself. Pulse by pulse, wave by wave, you sense, you think, you walk, you create, you remove, you add, you retain… you exist… now.
God demands obedience.
Nature demands awareness.
