This turns into an interesting discussion. It seems to be somewhat related to the OP so I'll keep going.
Of course I don't know how it works. I'm only hypothesizing. Firstly, the outer world might not be as physical as we perceive it to be. It might
change as our own inner mind evolves. I'm not sure if the outer world is a projection of my mind, or if my mind is shaped by my outer world. This is
highly interesting to me. I have for example noted how muslim countries usually have very low tax, very small government. In such a context, islam
appears to be pretty much THE only reasonable way to live. In a modern Western country however, things look very different. I've also noted how people
from the most "westernized" countries, if we're going to use that term, appear to be the most autistic and neurotic etc. I've written about this
elsewhere. Anyway, back to the catholic church. Well, I think I'm going to outline briefly my current working hypothesis of how the world works,
because this seems to be the right place to do that.
Evolution goes in one direction only. One of the distinguishing marks of being low in evolution is a lack of insight into the bigger picture, and a
lack of understanding of abstraction.
Those that are low in the evolution live in areas with no or very little government. There is anarchy or free market capitalism.
The more evolved, the more crony capitalism.
In the race where the fittest survive it is not only such things as being the smartest that determine survival. He who is less limited by morals has
an advantage over he who is more limited by morals.
When people migrate to a more evolved area their minds are not immune to the conditioning that that entails. Thus they fall astray in the land of sin.
Which is the same development for everybody, whether migrant or not.
So you have a few that might be living as ascetics and monks or perish as underdog because of adherence to morals. But most will follow lower
The whole evolution goes on and on, developing into ever tighter groupthink and ever lower vibration. Until a few people can't stand the pressure any
longer. These become mad and disordered, which is a blessing, a sign you've come to the next level.
What I wanted to say was that as this evolution goes on your own inner mind has to deal with it all, and that manifests as fear. That fear is
enlightenment. The more corruption in your outer world the more fear in you. People high in the evolution are very paranoid and very
alienated/atomized. This is where you find a vast majority of the members of this forum I believe. Eventually it reaches a point where all your inner
fears have been erased, which is the same as the total correction of sin. This might have happened to some people already. Do they and we really live
in the same world? I don't know, this is something I think about a lot. This is a very interesting map related to all this:
I also find "liberalism" a very interesting subject. I think that people are like sheep. What happens when people are "liberated" is that they'll run
around like headless chickens. They think they're following their heart, but they're really following their conditioning, i.e. their subconscious. I'm
not sure it's all bad though. For example it might lead to a narcissistic mother who follows the TV rather than church, which then is the new church.
As far as I'm concerned there is no real difference between a church and a TV, they're just at different stages of evolution, but both are media.
Anyway, the child of that mother might become alienated and whatnot, might end up a conspiracy theorist. Might hate his parents, might have no friends
etc. But since when are the most well-adjusted the most enlightened?
So while I think that a person that is "liberated" from religious dogma will most likely be a worse parent, which is also affected by all that which
has filled the mind in place of religion, such as feminism and promiscuity, I think this has a good side-effect. As the evolution goes in this
direction, as I described above, there will eventually come a generation of "forever alones", autistics, and otherwise socially inhibited. But I think
there is a good reason this is written in Gospel of Thomas:
Jesus said, "Whoever does not hate father and mother cannot be my disciple, and whoever does not hate brothers and sisters, and carry the cross as I
do, will not be worthy of me."
