This is something most people simply do not understand. Most people think that there are two sides: science vs religion. Not so. The religious and
scientific/atheist communities are constantly labeling things that are not currently known as blasphemy or fantasy.
Time and again, the scientific community swears something cannot possibly exist, only to be proven wrong again. Whether it's the case of the
mountain gorilla and giant squid, or the interconnection of all things, and causality, to them, nothing is true unless they can cut it up on a table,
or examine it under a microscope. As advanced as science is, it's still in it's infancy towards true spirituality, and will continue to remain as
such. They make great discoveries which turn out to be things the spiritual world has known from the dawn of man, and yet, they will claim it as
their own, cause now it's stood the test of the scientific method. Yet, how many scientific methods, and theories have existed in the past, and were
later proven to be absurb? Simply because what you see is state of the art now, doesn't mean it's correct.
When people go looking for answers outside of themselves, they can only find what others want them to believe. Just because someone is in a clerical
hierarchy does not make them a spiritual authority. It does, however, give them authority to teach a specific interpretation of a text. Yet, what
makes these people more capable of interpretation than you? Ah, divine insight, yes. They are divinely inspired. Of course, that is what someone who
simply wanted to control you would say as well.
You see, both the scientific and religious communities profit from controlling the population. Isn't that what man naturally seems to strive for,
power over one another?
These things, in fact, all evil derives from the concept of lack. The idea that we lack something and need to go elsewhere for it. For a thief, lack
of money or property. For a rapist, lack of sexual pleasure. For a killer, lack of excitement, or challenge. For a religious leader, lack of
followers. For a crusader, lack of favor in God's eyes. For an atheist, lack of proof.
There is no destructive habit that mankind has that is not motivated by lack. Laziness is motivated by lack of enthusiasm, lack of courage, lack of
resources, etc. Anger is motivated by lack of control over others. Sadness is motivated by lack of someone or something.
When life is motivated by lack, we have to look externally for what we dont have, and yet, we so rarely are satisfied by what we find.
Now, the powers that be fill our world with lack. Why? Because if we don't buy their products, believe their doctrines, or obey their laws, they do
not control us. They feel they lack control, power, or influence, so by manipulating the masses, they seem to be achieving what they desire. Yet, they
are never happy with it, and always want more.
However, when we look internally for what we want, we may find the answers that we seek. When our actions are motivated by the belief in abundance, we
act powerfully. When people behaive in such a way, they are successful. The most successful people have areas in their lives that radiate with
abundance. Not every rich man starts out rich. There's a process. Not every champion was born and lived with dominance like an Achilles figure. The
weak very often, become strong.
When we base our decisions on internal matters, we are more aligned with our true nature. Right now I'm sitting on a chair. But I can be very
comfortable outside in the rain, laying across a fallen tree, or sitting on a rock. I can appreciate what I have, and get the most out of the
A person with a belief in abundance does not do many things simply for his or her own betterment. Rather, much of what they do benefits others just as
much as themselves, yet, they still achieve what the lack motivated achieve.
If you feel you are miserable most of the time, if you have more than two bad or mediocre days a week, what is wrong with you? This is your life, yet
you spend it in misery, why? Because, you think you lack. You believe you need this money, you need to get ahead of the bills, you need to buy this
entertainment center, or that car. Yet, no matter what you surround yourself with, you are never happy for more than a moment.
But those in power, on both poles, atheist, or religious, they don't want to hear it. It's all bs and new age hippie lies. But the things I am
talking about are known, and have been taught and written about for thousands of years before science, or religion even became a notion. Back when we
were more attuned to nature, we could appreciate life, and we moved in harmony with it, giving back when we could. We all have our place in life, and
when we play our roles well, our lives explode with abundance and joy. But when we require a certain environment t be happy, and certain people, and
certain food, then, we are not living lives, we are slaves to comfort, and slaves to lack.
There are many people who say "Modern is superior. I would rather sit in my nice warm house, in my nice comfy bed, than live in a gave with a fire."
Yet, these same people cannot even be happy with their comfy bed and warm house. I can enjoy them immensely, but I can also enjoy a cave. My
pleasure comes from a world that science doesn't teach about. The world of the spirit. I enjoy it now. I don't wait to be happy until I'm dead.
But many of us have been raised to believe we need this, or that. We were taught what's true, and what isn't, by people who were programmed with the
same ideas you're bein programmed with. But see where it got them? Nowhere. They're not happy or satisfied, so why should you be following the same
road? Einstein himself said doing the same thing and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity.
