Geographical Righteousness

We shouldn’t confuse our values with geography. Our Spiritual Growth shouldn’t be impeded by the illusion of a religious birthright. When we enter the earth’s plane we are spiritual beings. We are God’s children. Soon after birth we start acquiring other baggage. We assume identity and values based on external reality, the earth plane. We are spiritual beings “temporarily” working and learning in the earth plane. 

As we grow up, we more and more relate to our bodies and the external world. By the time we grow up, we relate ourselves to others with external names and status. “Hi, my name is Mike. I’m an electrician and a member of the So and so religious group.” When I hear this I realize most people were raised in their order or congregation. They believe they are of the So and So religious order. I ask them when did you make this decision. Many people don’t decide, it’s decided for them.

Frequently some groups make the claim “We are the Chosen ones.” I ask then, if anyone can be more chosen then him that choses “God”?

Through most of history and a mainly rural, agricultural world people mainly worshipped by the availability and proximity of local churches. They usually only knew one church. In today’s world we are inundated with more knowledge and more good news. It behooves us as true children of God to ask questions and seek answers based on real values. Religious growth and values have always been in flux throughout all time, despite man’s intent to mold it and control it.

I’m trying to delineate a fine point that in essence is : My religious order is ONLY a working utility to better help me to work with other people and fulfill God’s plan.

When we get to heaven God does not separate us in heaven nor does he grant us entrance into heaven based upon our religious affiliation. God does not say, “Ok, I want all the Jews over here, all the Methodists over here, Hindus are next, Catholics need to go to the back.”

I’m not against organized religious groups. I just don’t believe that any of them have an exclusive and singular directive from God. We are children of God first and foremost. Together we can fulfil God’s plan best by realizing we are all here together. The tail cannot wag the dog.

Swamped by the knowledge of external objects, this subject of all knowledge has been temporarily eclipsed to the point of seeming nonexistence.

C. G. Jung 1946

      It requires a fair amount of work. The question comes down to does a person have something to share on a frequent basis. For instance, I have not created a new post in over a year even though I feel that I have thoughts and things to share. I have stunted myself recently because of having an inability to organize my thoughts in a sensible manner. I hope to return shortly to making more timely posts.

      WordPress or other blog creating websites can get you or others started. If you have something to say I for one would be glad to read them. I highly encourage you to start you own blog because I feel that everyone has a story, an outlook, an experience, or an idea that should be shared with others.

      An important part of creating your own blog is to read the blogs of other people, after all it doesn’t make sense to expect others to read your blog if you don’t read the blogs of other people. A fair amount of my time is reading others peoples blogs because I in turn learn great things from others. I have read some sites from people that would even be seen as a polar opposite of what I think or believe. Why? To learn from others, to check my own experience and outlook, to find out new things. This has actually been very helpful to me. Anyway, good luck. If you start a blog I hope to read it. Thanks.
