I suppose if I have but one thing to fear upon my deathbed it would be that eternal damnation is real, and I was about to experience it. I see myself
passing to the other side and as I’m kicking and screaming and fighting to get away I’m slowly but surely dragged towards these two huge pearly gates,
as they swing open there stands Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson and all the other self righteous maniacs I’ve come to detest in this lifetime. In a
horror worse then all horrors ever known I’m thrown thru the gates and they close behind me for all time. For me, there could be no crueler fate.
Why do I detest them? Why do I consider them to be the very personification of all that is wrong with the world today? Why can I not be content
walking my own path and allow them the right to walk their own? Please, sit back my friend, relax, and let me explain why I am a spiritual
Mainstream religions, it doesn’t matter which one you pick, Have but one goal, to enslave the spirit of all they can convert. They will use threats
of eternal damnation, guilt over your simple foils as a human being or the threat of the sword if need be to convert as many as possible to the
wretched toil of the spiritual cotton fields. Those they cannot enslave they vilify or destroy.
Like the proverbial monster under the bed the religious fiends are there at the birth of every new child, so that the brainwashing can begin at the
earliest possible moment. With pictures and home movies they record the baptism, dedication, the time in their nurseries and the first visit to Sunday
school where the real indoctrination begins. Different religions have different rituals but all serve the same purpose, to enslave the soul and ensure
the new crop of pew warmers are secure within the legions of the spiritually decapitated.
But slavery is not the true nature of man, and they know this. By the time the child is old enough to begin to explore spirituality, to have a truly
spiritual experience, they have nothing to fall back upon accept the mindless garbage that has been drilled into them. The first spiritual experience
they have reinforces the brainwashing that they have been subject too. The trap had been set from birth and as it was sprung on the unsuspecting and
vulnerable child it delivered unto the masters of spiritual despotism another lifelong victim to be exploited.
I suppose there are those that would say any spiritual path is better than none at all. To them I would reply that a life spent in chains is not
preferable to a life lived freely, especially when it’s the very slaves that hold the key to their freedom.
Freedom has never been the easy path. You must accept what challenges come your way, responsibility for both your victories and your failures, and
understand that you are in the driver’s seat of your own life.
Religions don’t allow that. They give you a convenient scapegoat any time something goes wrong. The devil did it, or the evil fairies did it or
spirits from the dark side made you do it. That’s crap! The devil didn’t kill 230 million people in WWII, The devil never rode in the crusades and
wasn’t onboard the airplanes that crashed in the world trade centers. Man did that and until we stop blaming dark forces and start accepting
responsibility for our own actions then the killing will not stop.
Religions take away the very thing they promise, a true relationship with the divine. Forcing people to follow the dogma, not allowing any dissent,
saying that 10% of your paycheck and an hour or so on Sunday morning is all you need to be saved from whatever terror they’ve somehow convinced you
exists is ludicrous. The creator of all things is NOT a Sunday morning happy meal.
I am a Spiritual Anarchist.
There was a time when human beings were enslaved and a few brave souls stood up and cried out at the brutality and injustice of such a monstrosity
being allowed to exist. Many died defending the idea of freedom for all against those that wished to keep people enslaved. In time those few became
many and even though it took a war it still led to freedom for all.
I’ve no doubt there are those that would kill me for the heresy I proclaim. I will not be silenced. The religions and their leaders whose only goal is
to keep humans in spiritual servitude and enslave the mind and soul of mankind must be overcome. It is wrong, it is unjust, and I shall cry out for
all to hear that it must be over thrown.
The only hold that any religion has on man is in convincing him that upon his death he will face the loss of free will. Thats crap. I had free
will before I came here, I have free will now and i shall have free will when I leave for the next world. I plan on coming right back too. I like it
Well, thats my take on the subject.
Love and light to each of you,
