Oh yes, we are! About us, the humanity of people, being manipulated, mislead and cheated by false religions and by an impostor entity or a few who for
that reason to us pretend(s) to be the highest God and want(s) us to believe that there is no other reality above him(them), and about earthly
institutions playing their game for power, indoctrinating us with false ideas.
Don't misunderstand: this doesn't mean that there would be no Highest God, a prime creator, and there could not be a true religion, but the latter
is either lost or we have not been able to establish it yet.
I think its important to understand though....all of the paths that are a part of human history be it a fact or myth, is a part of humanities
evolving, as a whole. You may find them to be lies and false, but they have a purpose for us. The paths that are not have just as much purpose as the
path that is. Things like the gnostic explanations of 'emanations' allows us to understand there are levels...and the lower the level is from the
highest source, the more its distorted from perfection. Things like the OT god image later allows us to discern what a Holy Spirit would NOT be...what
natures a Spirit of a most high god would not be. To find what the nature what the Holy Spirit would be...we will have to go through many images of
what Thee is NOT...and its likely that we wont find out that Thee is NOT those natures till later, maybe thousands of years later. Alot of the myths
even, have meaning for us. It shows us how man in the past made understanding of things they could not explain in logical terms.
Things like 'what is god, who is god' are not things another man can explain to another man. The design of the 'word' is set up in places that it
cant be tainted nor destroyed, its within the blueprint of the Universe, the cycles and orders of how nature works. Its in a place that forces each
person to seek on their own path. If man is seeking for 'god' through other men and through manmade objects like books, they will only find a
limited understanding of what the possibilities are. This still offers them something, for it offers them wisdom of things of Earth, things of flesh.
Man cant understand things beyond Earth, things of Spirit....until they understand and can discern 'what is of Earth'. The design is set up perfect
in the sense that man will learn things of flesh before learning things of Spirit.
Most of the teachings past down through man are simple analogies that hold a deeper meaning.
Like the tree of knowledge and the idea of adam and eve...its a much deeper analogies that holds a deeper understanding then a real man and a real
woman. Most of the gnostic explanations of our world is analogies as well.
As time goes by, mankind will make new understandings and new analogies. We see how alot of old beliefs are coming to light again with a new spin on
them and being called 'new age' beliefs. We are seeing how the return of 'christ' is understood by some to be a return that will occur in many
beings, as a united consciousness event.
Man kinds understandings evolve with time and mankinds past understandings are just as important to us now for it helps us see how mankind personified
things, like the stars and planets.
It is ironic to me that man has been trying to make a 'man' god for a very long time, in many different cultures. Its also neat how the names of
beings, people, deities....have meanings within the name.
One of the most interesting words I find of interests that evolved from one culture to the next is the word Ra. In Egypt...Ra was the sun, the giver
of life....and in Hebrew, the ones that came out of Egypt, Ra meant 'evil'. We see mankinds understandings evolve with time for each cultures own
Point being, many people get upset feeling they have been lied to and cheated out of truth. I dont think that back then when lets say the people were
coming out of Egypt and trying to make their own understanding of things, that its a 'lie' of what they found god to be and the image of god to
be...I think it makes sense that their idea of 'god' was very human like in nature, acted out of anger, acted with jealousy, and did not seem 'all
knowing, just like we humans are.
I think all of the past is very important to us now, for it all gives us markers to discern from paths that are not so we may begin to understand,
paths that are.
