Religion, the false promise of bringing you closer to God when it does the exact opposite.

If you have a true relationship with God you will know that there is no hell and that he.....

You gave “it” a gender. You are still tainted from the years of mental abuse stemming from organized religion, huh?

Only reason I wrote "he" is because it sounded good, I don't know which word to replace it with. A consciousness/soul has no gender, so no, I didn't mean to imply that God has a gender.

I have never been religious either, this is more about spirituality and the future spiritual revolution (trust me, it is coming).


I think it’s more like a spiritual ‘evolution’ that’s already in process and has been ever since the Big Bang.

It’s not ‘us’ that is becoming more aware, it’s the Universe. The multiverse. The ‘consciousness’ or the ‘Unified Field’.
The Universe is employing its own creation, evolution, to develop itself a higher life form through which it can experience itself. Fully.
On this planet we have one of possibly infinite developments the Universe has underway, the human.
I imagine the Universe puts it’s energy and conscious effort into the project with the most promise, which in all likelihood is probably not us.
But it may be, we’re at least aware of the possibility the Universe is conscious.
And we actively seek to explore the quantum mechanics that make up the fundamental particles which has lead us down a path that, thus far, shows us that a conscious universe may actually be the driving force behind all creation.

As humans evolve we will become more and more aware of what we really are, what the universe really is and then maybe, discover a purpose for it all.

I imagine we’ll be beaten to the punch by another species from elsewhere and then our evolutionary journey will stop and we’ll keep whatever conscious-state we reached at the time.

This is all just my opinion of course.

It’s just as likely some ancient prophet was right all along and we really should be stoning rape victims to death.

Each to his own ‘opinion’ when it comes to spirituality.

Until we can actively connect to one another in out of body experiences and relate that to real world applications, we won’t know either way.

I'm sorry, but my gibberish is a bit rusty, ...

I just realized the word "jibber-jabber" comes actually closer to what I was thinking about there. With the added bonus that it might not stick so much in someone's craw as the word "gibberish" might (unintendedly, having a bit of difficulty translating a Dutch expression I'm thinking of into English).

Have you seen or heard the world?

Or is there just sound and vision happening...... those that have eyes see.... those that have ears hear.

Do you believe the thoughts that speak of the world without consideration?

Is there an inner and outer to experience?

It may sound gibberish or jibber jabber to you but who cares?

Do you think that jibber jabber is less offensive that gibberish?

Don't worry.... I am not offended.

But God might be!!!

Of course it'd say that. The bible has been in the hands of people who do not have any qualms about twisting and changing things to benefit them for centuries. Hell, the bible it's self was made, editted, and codified by the council of Nicea.

The point is most religions speak of a Creator, that's how you get to know there possibly is one to find. That's all religion does. Furthermore there's some history, knowledge and wisdom.

When you submit to the book, and not to the God the book is referring to then you failed the purpose of the book and you might as well continue doing what other people tell you to do and not to do.
