This is of truth. Many will think that self is separate from your spirit, but you are indeed the spirit.
Ah, but there are different levels of awareness within the spirit, varying degrees of self. You become your spirit in degrees, but there are ways to
dilute it. You can filter your awareness of it, but it's becoming more aware of it that's the hard part.
And since we're rarely schooled in the subject, it is difficult to tell the difference between imagined meanings and true spirit. It's so simple to
understand, but very few seem to realize, probably because they would believe it to be witchcraft, even though every single true practicing Christian
practices witchcraft quite frequently, whenever they go to sermons. You can find every symbol, metaphor, holy implement, and even some of the prayers
in cultures that existed long before Christianity was even thought of. Anyway, everything you feel and experience must be translated in order to be
expressed and disgust, right? You must put labels on these ideas. A system of auditory vibrations that can be arranged into a meaningful pattern and
list a series of impressions to identify and process and store. But these vibrations don't mean anything by themselves - at least, not that we are
able to perceive with our five senses. They are useless. An idea must be given to them, like fresh data entered into a completely new system. If it is
a new idea, it gets a new label, a new parameter. And the more people that use it, the more it is known. But the best part is - redefining it
You redefine an idea, and it changes how everyone looks at it and feels about it. You can turn good into evil in a matter of weeks. It's called
Neurolinguistic Programming, a very simple and subtle art of crowd control. It's a magnificent control mechanism, especially when everyone is trained
to trust you.
Its scary, and it's real. Now look at it this way - money rules the world. If you want to be anybody at all, you have to have money. People like
impressive stuff, and impressive stuff costs money. Lots of it. So these great and mighty churches suddenly find themselves in a world where freedom
of religion is gaining popularity. They are about to be lost in the swell of civilization, like so many empires before them. So what do they do? They
buy into politics, selling whatever excuse they have to in order to take more and more money. "God" may be omnipotent, but he definitely isn't
sharing. So when the head honchos of the Vatican begin realizing how much power they have with all this money, they establish a system.
And now, in order to maintain the thrall of the public for the benefit of politicians and priests everywhere, the church has redefined everything
holy, making sure to leave us a single direction by which to find spirituality. And that's only part of it. That's not mentioning division and
degradation. These are another third of the argument each. And that's only one half altogether. I see a lot wrong with the current spiritual system,
because it's the Rothschild of religion. Talks a lot of good game, but doesn't stand up to scrutiny. And in the end, it short changes everyone,
whether they notice it or not.
Because the error is in the person, not the spirit.
