Well, I have been into psychology since I went to a class in college about it - same with the world religions.
But I know the difference between spirituality and religion. I also know where all the religions came from and why each one came about. I have read
the bible from front page to last page and even more. I was taught meditation from the far East.
For the bible, it was a screaming of a peoples, for them to jot down an account in history which was given to them in oral tradition. There are
mysterious events claimed to have occured, a reasonable person can think it is possible then we find evidence like the pyramids at Giza - it's crazy
people actually believe that humans can place 15 ton stones in the air without a crane every 16 minutes 24 hours a day nonstop, that is the
calculation for what they teach. Some of the stories in the bible which are most fantastic they are actually taken from a foundational story that was
further back in history, relating it to their times, so in no way should a person try to use those words to attack today's planet and society like
they do, but it has been getting better.
The very first religions originally started pagan, we can consider this to be because humans we naive when they were making the transition from
neolithic to civilization around the land of Sumer. But it gets shaky because in the last 200 years archaeologists and researchers alike started
discovering that these people in the very beginning all said the same thing - which means it was an account of oral tradition passed down through the
ages because of no writing system. Part of the account says strange things about a lower group of gods and higher group of gods, but talks about them
physically coming down to earth. So one can say that they were ignorant and actually thought that people had created earth in the distant pass, or
people from the sky really did come down and establish themselves upon ancient earth. But that part agrees with the bible, because the bible came
The religions started from a person in all cases. The very purpose of the earliest religions was to serve, the act of serving. So whenever an
influencial figure came up they were very influential and the religion was created to serve in their name, and people will not create a division
between the figure and religion because of the Divine Spirit. That is not bad, assuming that most of these ancient people wanted to help mankind.
But let's stop there for a second, what is a spirit?
The Divine Spirit is a ghostly presence that is large because it extends down from the sky unto earth. It is part of the galaxy, part of the solar
system, part of the planets, and part of all that is on earth. That means we are all One. So the biggest preaching of spirituality is that we are
all One. Then we start going deeper and deeper into psychology because we learn that the whole world doesn't agree with this. Ever since the
beginning with Moses it was written that the Most High was not picky over names, so we can say that this Divine Spirit is a Divine Presence.
In psychology we learn it is the truth that human beings have an ego which is their perception and thoughts, and they have a subconscious which is
still them but it is the conscious underneath our reality. It is even more smarter than our perception - it is like a computer.
So indeed I want to learn how to be and act out of my subconscious, parts of my conscious mind would be switched off, like a hypnotic state, but the
goal is to achieve ultimately what is under the conscious.
