When you meditate, you calm your mind, you calm your energies, and it works as a way to break out of your current thought paradigm. This opens you to
the ability of integrating other thought paradigms, existences into your own experience. This is why a strong foundation must be built on mindfulness
and concentration, 1. to not get caught up in what you might happen to experience 2. to utilize the state of mind that can be gained from meditation;
which gets down to knowing yourself. Some of us carry our own demons, without realizing all the little behaviors attributed to them.
There is no deity, whether good or bad, that doesn't in itself garner an entrapment for your mind. As long as there is a higher power to shift your
power to, you will, for good or bad. Do you not understand that it is YOUR mind that can ponder the words of 'god' ? The light is within you, and
does not need any external thought to bow down to. Pay your respects to whomever, but inside is the power which effects change on your whole
experience through life and death and rebirth. But it is hidden, well hidden. What you see on the forefront of your mind are fruits of the trees
coming from seeds planted long ago. What is needed is cultivation of the land, the primal instincts of the mind, the subconscious. Cut down the old
and plant the new, become more aware of what IS currently happening in your life and HOW you are ALLOWING yourself to react to it. If you build
wisdom, discernment and refine it, it will become a sharp sword to cut through any past delusion you must contend with before freedom is to be had.
Jesus said the kingdom is within you, but you must realize it. Be careful with symbols, they pay point the way, but they are not what you are looking
for. What you are looking for is the Jesus that is within you. We are all part of each other, but it is through our habits, beliefs, and karmic
action that we become separated into groups of segregated thought. It is in our own natural ability to display compassion and love that we breathe
any life into any saying we can find in any book written of wisdom from any religion.
