In the Name of God

“God is a concept, by which we measure our pain.”

In the Beginning

We profess to know the origins of humanity from ancient civilizations based on history and science.  Yet, we fail to understand beyond academia.  The proof to confirm this statement is in our behavior and existence, particularly with each other, nature and the universe.  Centuries ago, a group of men conspired to write a book that would ultimately dictate to billions of people doctrines for righteousness.  Though for many, it is an egocentric endeavor.

Many books have been written for this purpose.  However, through the generational imposition of religion, it has become the standard.  The Bible does not cause animosity, debate, prejudice and war.  It is those who use it as a control mechanism to proliferate the supremacy of their tradition.  Much like democracy, the vision of religion is sound, yet its reality has been nothing short of a nightmare.  So too is our belief in a singular God.

“I don’t believe in magic.”

Sleight of Singularity

Nothing is one dimensional.  The universe is an expression of omnidimensionality. However, humanity clings to existential singularity for comfort, familiarity, knowledge and relativity.  When perceived through the socially institutionalized mind, it occurs as a linear timeline; quantified within a three-dimensional domain and often viewed through a filter of duality.  In this microcosmic paradigm, it is much easier to influence, manipulate and regulate the masses.

Before the organized control structures of the marketplace, politics and religion, early civilizations had a strong relativity with themselves, each other, nature and the universe.  Understanding existed before knowledge, mysticism before dogma and universality before reality.  When intelligence superseded the soul, men invented patriarchal singularity, thus diminishing the natural power of the feminine.  This matrix is rooted in our minds.

“I don’t believe in the Bible.”

Middlemen of Ministry

Religion spread like a virus across the world, guilting its followers with fire and brimstone and securing the segregation of civilization.  The people gathered in congregations, eagerly offering their loyalty, money and prayers.  They sacrificed their universal power on the altar of dogma with their blind faith, obedience and spiritual oblivion.  The cross stood as an obligatory symbol of enslavement to a vengeful God, enforced by middlemen of ministry.

To follow is societal.  To lead is tyrannical.  To be is universal.  Much is made of leadership in society.  Yet, when observed with veracity, its contemporary expression is dictatorship.  Most would opt to obey, as it appears to be the easiest path, considering the callous conditions of social reality.  Our evasion and renunciation of accountability, integrity and responsibility emboldens the middlemen of ministry; enabled by our fear, insecurity and oblivion.

“I don’t believe in Jesus.”

The Con of Belief

When we believe in something, it does not make it real.  No matter how attentively we direct our intention, it often fails to exist in a beneficial way; personally, socially or universally.  In essence, belief is a spiritual magic trick to separate us from our soul.  Social reality is designed to draw us away from ourselves.  It seizes our focus by siphoning our energy into our external environment, causing our spiritual deficiency, upon which the ministry preys.

The imposition of religion coerces us into the obligatory slavery of our soul.  The church weaponized the crucifixion to control, guilt, manipulate and condemn its disciples to a sentence of virtual salvation.  Religious persecution awaits anyone who dares challenge the Word of God, with all the fire and brimstone its ministers can muster.  The con of belief enforces the Will of God as an agenda of imaginary faith in a vain exhibition of righteousness.

“I don’t believe in mantra.”

Congregational Dependence

Any organization exercising coercion, dogma or obligation as its stratagem is a cult.  This is certainly not exclusive to religion.  We can observe Cabals in the domains of business, media, politics, sports and science.  We justify our indoctrination by convincing ourselves it is for our benefit, growth, profit, success or survival, all the while strengthening our enslavement to social reality.  Orthodoxy is our dependency upon the simulation of society.

The con is often the same.  One or a few leaders preside over the congregation.  What is absent is mutual trust.  One the individual person has with themselves, and the one the leader empowers upon their devotee to envision and create their own path.  However, this dynamic becomes toxic when driven by the egocentricity of the leader.  Yet, as much as the minister enforces their doctrine, the believer enables their spiritual slavery with their engagement.

“I don’t believe in kings.”

The Greatest Transgression

Many of the sins admonished by the middlemen of ministry are not as offensive as their blatant disregard for their own doctrine.  For centuries, religions have abused, chastised, demonized, exiled, imprisoned, persecuted and executed millions in the Name of God.  They built armies, decimated cultures, destroyed nature and propagated fear to turn the people against each other and themselves.  All for the purpose of preserving their religious racket to control the theology of the world.

Religion is a vicious cycle of sin, provoked and punished to segregate the people from their soul.  First, with an illustration of guilt when the disciple is shown the evil of their existence.  Second, an imposed obligation they must accept to remedy their wicked behavior.  Third, a feigned lifestyle of righteousness, to which they must aspire, yet will never fulfill.  Fourth, the sacrifice of their soul to a manmade God for passage into “Heaven.”

“I just believe in me.”

In the Name of God

“God” is a commercial institution, blasphemed most by those who consider themselves “holy.”  We acquiesce our personal power to evade our accountability, integrity and responsibility as a universal being.  We even sacrifice our humanity to an imaginary divinity with our dependency on social conformity, popularity and vanity.  Religion is a vicious cycle of emulation that oppresses our discovery, empowerment and expression of universality.

We are everything, and we are nothing.  All we sense about ourselves is an illusion, as is the social reality in which we engage.  It is our habitual belief in authoritarian deceptions which enables our social enslavement.  The greatest revelation we will ever experience occurs when we awaken from the religion of reality.  We have all been proselytized into a lie, invented by the few to enslave the many, all in the Name of God.
