This is part of my ongoing effort to move all of my writing from numerous sources back over onto ATS. I hope you enjoy.
From the Abyss:
I've always been different, for this I make no excuses, I have a different path to follow, a different life to lead, different information making up
the model I use to see the world, however the real difference between me and the others I've met is I realize there is difference, that difference
doesn't remove us from being expressions of the same thing but instead glorifies the whole, crowing it in diversity and allowing it continual
regeneration through it's warring factions.
I , you, it, are all the same, one source, all thoughts of the same mind, we are a minuscule representation of this One Divine truth, all things
resolve themselves back into this Eternal Mind which re-adapts itself and produces new life. In essence to me all religions shroud this truth in it's
symbols, all science is but the discovery of it's interaction with the planes of existence and all philosophy stems from it's interaction with life
I refuse to call myself a Christian, a Buddhist or Muslim, I refuse to allow myself to be confined to another's definition of God, this was the
calling which lead me to the path of Philosophical Freedom. I speak to others with reverence for their religion, with love for their prophets and
fables, I am free to worship at the alter of any "God" without causing disrespect to my own.
To look at the world today we have what we have always had, an ideological war over the definition of one God over another, the name of one Prophet in
comparison to another and this is the pattern we as a species are doomed to repeat. Every prophet has told us to look beyond the words we employ to
describe out worlds, to love our enemies like our own brothers, and somehow we manage to combine these beliefs into established Churches which do
little more than impose their own bias, we allow them to present their interpretations of Sacred works as Divine Truth. our Churches eventually spill
out into the moral values or our societies, their doctrines becoming further corrupted and utilized to command obedience from all who are "baptized"
in their beliefs.
Some call me a fool for my relationship to God independent of Church or State, but yet I have never caused a single war, some people call me a
Satanist whilst using their Religion as an excuse to pour venomous hatred at another point of view under the pretense of what their church offers as
salvation. I accept no Saviour except myself, I accept no God that I cannot directly experience, in short I refuse to accept a truth simply because it
is stated as being true, I am the hermit ever seeking the source of the light I shine on the path.
The path of Attainment, The Razors edge path is lined with the corpses of those who've lost sight along the way, I'll either be One more rotting
corpse in the graveyard of creation or like the Phoenix I'll rise above the world of Death, the Sphere of ignorance, cast off my mortality of my own
accord and rise to the mind of God.
