Both religion and atheism/materialism supress true spiritual potential.
The majority still thinks it can uphold these two sides as the "main sides" without factoring in true spirituality. Keep the sheep focussed on those
two so that, during a lifetime, they never even begin to discover their true potential.
Spirituality offers everything religion does without the negative side-effects:
Belief in higher realms - without having to submit to a certain leader in order to gain access.
Belief in the possibility of a supreme being - without playing the "we are right, they are wrong" game that has caused all wars.
Belief in "you reap what you sow" - Goodness is displayed not out of fear of punishment but out of a simple understanding of cause-effect
relationships. This understanding automatically implies ethical behaviour and accountability/responsibility.
Belief in the importance of today - rather than projecting salvation to some distant future.
Belief in many different levels of truth - rather than "this is the absolute truth and all other people are wrong".
Contrary to atheism/materialism, spirituality encourages:
To train onseself to focus ones mind and meditate
To seek joy as a first-hand experience
To consider not only what can be seen and measured, but possibilties beyond that
The obvious conspiracy to supress true spiritual potential and its side-effects of out-of-body-experience, states of enlightenment, dimensional travel
by lucid dreaming, influence of reality by power of mind, and so on is facilitated by schooling and keeping a tight leash on religion vs. atheism as
the only valid "big worldviews" to choose from. It is further instituted by keeping people in fear and generating short attention spans or
so that nobody learns to focus the mind and learn its powers.
By the amount of atheist-materialists and christians on this board I realize Im in the minority, but I insist on factoring in the THIRD side which
often gets drowned out by dull debates on "creationism vs. evolution" and other variations of the two established sides.
Who is behind this conspiracy we cant be sure of, but we can see its effects.
I look forward to an enjoyable read from people who agree, disagree and partially agree and partially disagree.
