Spiritual but not Religious

Good evening all. Today I would like to clarify the meaning of religion, and the root to a loss of momentum in the right direction. Religion: any formal or institutionalized expression of such belief. Today I would like to dig into the wound of society. Are we better off religious or spiritual. Religion for years has been the cause of wars, division, strife, confusion, and last but not least….death, and destruction of whole bloodlines. How can one be so in love with attending a meeting that plans, and divides our society with hateful tactics against our neighbors. I once visited a small town of 1200 people that had 52 churches and temples in their town all using the same book to teach from mostly all related people to, and very closed mined about society..This was a very low income area, and churches lined the streets. What could be so different about us that we would require so many institutions to speak from one book. When has a religious person ever spoke to their neighbor, and not down to their neighbor?..as if they all have to be lost. How can the God we claim as our father show biasness, division , and more love for one group? The fact is religion is not the answer to a independent relationship with our higher power or inner self. Can one become strengthen from being religious? Yes group support by our very nature builds some level of confidence, strength, and motivation even street gangs have showed us this. What happens when the we are better, they are lost attitude steps in? What happens when the same issues persist? This is when we leave one church or temple to worship at another, and another. The very nature of religion is division. The God we speak of is a inward outward thing. Everything you and I need is within us, and our neighbor Gen 2:7 Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.. The  bridge between the natural and the spiritual are crossed by understanding our difference, and accepting safely what you cannot understand. Fact is if you are tied up in a religious war, confused about our existence, or sitting in a pew dividing yourself from the rest of the world. Then you are feeding the problem. The nature of humanity is to grow into this vessel we live in. To coordinate our flesh and spiritual to better work for our future. How does religion help us do this. The same wars are still raging on by the devout ones who not only want to make everyone what they are, but will also take up arms in pursuit of this agenda. With serious violence. This is not good for our future. Humanity is crying out. Spirituality is relating to the spirit or soul and not to physical nature or matter; intangible. If we want to see our full potential.  Focus on ourselves. Motivate one another, encourage growth, and support a more inward outward approach to betterment. Fact Jesus was not a catholic or a Christian, he wasn’t Baptist or Pentecostal. Muhammad was not a Muslim …It didn’t exist. These are all institutions that sprang up in their name. Society again are getting themselves caught up in the messengers, and missing the message. Jesus traveled and taught (no temple), and for the record the men traveling with him we can prove carried swords…now does that sound like a peaceful protest to you. I challenge everyone reading this to look inward for answers to problems first before looking at our neighbor. Focus less on religious beliefs than spiritual growth. Remember if we focus on bettering ourselves the whole world will change…Lets stop fighting other peoples battles, and win some of our own.

Spiritual Wars

th Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. My friends I wish I could only speak of the pleasantries of our existence but the truth is things are far from pleasant. As the sheep roam freely in the fields, and the grass seem so pretty and endless. We are being watched, and the Shepard must not get caught spacing out, or sleeping, and we must not roam off into the high grass. Today though here at the Spiritual Health Institute I would like to address the issue of Free will darkness(Flesh), and the darkness from outside forces(Spiritual),we are creatures of free will there is a light and a dark side that dwells with in us all. Self inflicted darkness. We all have one. Free will darkness is like a premeditated crime…planned well in advance. No one told you to do it, and you chose to bring chaos, or drama into yours and anybody else’s life involved. We have all experience it. You see we love to throw the blame on others especially the devil. This free will darkness comes from angry, hurt, bitterness, jealousy, envy, and pride. This is what builds up within us and stays all balled up until that passive aggressive moment for action. It is lethal, very deadly. This type of darkness builds up because of lack of counseling, or just all out refusing deliverance. We pass it on to our children, friends, even animals. You can tell who we are by our outward expression, or walking around up tight, some just cry or lashing out. I listen to people all the time say the devil is attacking me. Trying to destroy me. When all the time you were out in the high grass, or had something going on with your life that was out of order. Or you allowed your dark undelivered feeling to take you over like a all out possession. Which requires Spiritual intervention. That is another lesson. Today I want to just focus on taken responsibility for our own carnal, imperfect ways, YOU did it without any help. We must remember we have a choice. When we have these inordinate feelings come up, we must immediately meditate or pray on them to find out the source of these thoughts. We must learn how to fight our demons, if we truly seek to progress to a healthy and peaceful tomorrow. As children we can play the blame game, but as adults we must except the China that is broke in the cabinet if we are acting like a bull.

Love Equals Spiritual Growth

thCA09LWNB

I like this definition of love; a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person, place, thing, animal, or idea. Today I will just use it in a general since. Love…I will also capitalize it every time I use it to give it the attention, and power it deserves. When I think of Love.. It brings to my attention the relationship between plant and animal. A great magnetic power that brings with it healthy satisfaction and a unbreakable bond. As we expel carbon dioxide and request oxygen, they release oxygen and demand carbon dioxide. In fact they expels what we need in every nook and cranny that is open to receive it without even asking. Even in our sleep we expel the essential gas they need. They reproduce to continue giving to us as do we to them. Seemingly a lifelong connection. What a wonderful relationship. What a harmonious thought. Now lets discuss the ugly part briefly also. Just as some plants are dangerous and poisonous, so are we to them, but interestingly enough through bees, birds and other means of travel we still find a way to stay together. Even when we go through conflicting interest like chopping down trees for space to live, or allergies to grasses or plants. We still manage to find a way to remain together. Bound together by destiny. The most important part for us to remember when we think we have nothing in common, and aren’t anything alike is we both require some amounts of sunlight, and water to survive. This is what continues to draw us together, this is what matters the most. We must not run from this chemistry, and we cannot survive without this pure bond which is Love. This bond is what helps us to grow physically, and spiritually. We must learn to nurture each other. If we deny ourselves the right to this natural connection we fail to grow physically, and spiritually.

What’s Next

For the last 2000 years we have progressed toward a brighter future technologically, but in the process we have also managed to find ways to continue to render our friends, family, neighbor’s, and competition dependent, and unconnected to our innermost pure source of light. We refuse to teach our children about the importance of proper attitude towards each other, the environment, and ourselves. As the garden of life dies out. We begin to believe that life is about plotting, taking, and keeping. We start to believe that we own people, places, and things. We force others, and nature to give up the natural instinct to survive. We claim to own things and we take no responsibility for its outcome. How do we remedy this over the next 2000 years? How do we stop these insecurities about our world having its own force, its own mind? Its so hard to train up a child, invest everything into them, and then give them up to the obvious truth that they are not yours, or mine. They have their own choices, and their own destiny to live out. So many of us live our life without purpose. Never finding out our purpose, and moving without passion. I always say, ” You can die because, or die for a cause either way we have to go”. We are reprogramming everything around us to respond in a predictable, and shallow way. I’m constantly reminded of the Roman times when the games, and theater taught us how to act, and live. With no need to harness our instincts, nor live out a passionate existence. Greater is he/she that is in the world, and not of it. What does this mean to you? I will tell you what is required to live out another 2000 years. A fulfilling life, You can live for a cause or you can die because(illness accidents and such). Learn your natural talents, and use these gifts to tear down walls, and boundaries. As far as religion goes im constantly reminded of the expression of the big difference in an expert, and a professional. An expert is: a person who has a special skill or knowledge in some particular field; specialist; authority; A professional: following an occupation as a means of livelihood or for gain. Careful with the 2 different teachers. Very few are good at both, and one is more likely to mislead you than the other. We need them to teach less dependence, and codependence. We must call out the frauds and bring them to justice immediately without stifling the ones with potential. That’s not what past spiritual examples taught, that’s what the institutions built around their lives on this plane seem to be trying to convince us of. Learning to grow foods, herbs, and respect the relationship we have with trees more, remember it is a even exchange. Become more modest with space, and our living arrangements. Protect our water ways, and water needs more. We are mostly made up of water. It is a vital resource, and another, but not the last is live in peace. We have to respect each others space and needs. This is not all of them but just a beginning of a brighter future.

Mystery Of One

A Unit is defined: A single thing or person. Any group of things or persons regarded as an entity: They formed a cohesive unit. One of the individuals or groups that together constitute a whole; one of the parts or elements into which a whole may be divided or analyzed. Any magnitude regarded as an independent whole; a single, indivisible entity. Now this to me sums up the whole. We all assume a role in the up bringing of civilization. We all have this inner power to be cultivated. To play a part in the whole. No one unit is more valuable than the next in the grand scheme of things, but yet some of us will assume more responsibility, and therefore play a larger role in its development. In the day to day. Being a whole requires several units, or parts to function. The parts must work together, and each assume responsibility for its part. Any negatively functioning parts will negatively effect the whole, any over exertion of one part will burnout the unit and therefore cause the whole to operate out of balance, or maybe not at all. This is the story of our existence, this is why we are here. We must learn this concept…working together, showing compassion for other parts of the whole, not interfering with positive contribution. Seeking new ways to positively express ourselves. Allowing the whole to have new units, and make upgrades as needed. We should be happy to one day leave this plane knowing we left the world, and humanity in one piece. In Peace. When we fight for reasons such as religious freedom, race, gender etc. If we do it in a disruptive way we damage the effectiveness of the whole. As we have our individual chance to live on this plane, and share our unique experiences with each other by living out our purpose. We must work to understand our difference in choice, and opinion. Don’t think for a second one can wipe out anyone of difference, and not spend the rest of your time here alone. These are things that if we stop for a moment and look ahead. We would see it is ourselves that we hurt if we stop moving, living, and learning. Thinking as one requires communication. Room for honest statistics, and everyone playing their part. Expanding out across the universe. Raising up families that respect their neighbors, and care for their environment. Holding those accountable for purposed destruction, and fixing poorly functioning parts (people). Making regular upgrades. This requires open communication. Looking over skin, religion, and gender. Drawing out every individuals talents to the surface. If it doesn’t effect the production, accept it as a individuals life. This should be our earnest desire. It inspires peace. It promotes family. Insults should be addressed with why, and solutions should be considered. Cruelty should be unacceptable, and forgiveness should be sought. One comes as an idea with many working parts coming together for one purpose. One accomplishment after another. This is the mystery. No one person, place or thing on this plane has all the answer. They are spread among every unit, individual, or part to make a whole.
