Ever since humanity left the higher realms they have been seeking a way to return home. For human life is a divine circle of creation, learning what needs to be learned the way it needs to be learned through being human and finally transcending being human to re-connect with eternal spirit roots. The problem for most humans is that the majority of this process is the result of unseen forces that natural sciences cannot easily explain. This has created the opportunity for some humans to control humanity through their own views (by creating myths), for their own means. Unfortunately, this has often been done in the name of God through man-made authoritarianism religions (Daddy, tell me what to do.) with irrelevant traditions for today’s world.
Now within a new self-empowering age of human spirituality, conscious individuals are realizing they are the creator creating all the time (through their emotions, thoughts and actions); that they are individuated (made in the image of) expression of what we may call ‘God.’ And the personal process of re-connecting with this ‘source’ is one of inside out, not outside in. Humans have taken on a mighty journey, often unaware, that in effect we are affecting all of creation itself (since all come from oneness).
Humanity is transitioning from religion which is an ‘outside in’ process, to spirituality which is an awakening to ‘inside out’. Spiritual truth, which is the basis of many religions (distorted by religions for eons) is now the ‘awakened truth’ within many individuals feeling and thinking for themselves. Through a personal spiritual development, humans are able to transcend the ’me’ and transition into a ‘we consciousness’ that also serves the highest good of others.
Religion is often filled with wisdom, beauty and ‘inspiration’. Spirituality can take these elements and create a ‘transformation’ within the individual without any of the controlling aspects of religion. We are not here to tell people what to do but to offer guidelines so individuals may learn the best path to their divinity (through their free will and choice). It’s inevitable that divinity is humanity’s destination. How long and when humanity gets there is up to the free will and choice of each individual! Religions were the original governments telling people how to live to be worthy to find God (you cannot control what you did not create). Most of the national governments today were modeled after ancient religions. When the United States was created, higher realms reminded the founding fathers of the importance of the separation of church and state. But many governments maintain religious undertones, even if they are not explicit.
The word ‘religion’ means, “to connect”. This is the era for humanity to directly connect through resonance (feeling with the heart) and discernment (thinking with the mind) with the energies, consciousness, Source, God, All There Is; or whatever you choose to call it. Your ‘internal gyro system’, your resonance and discernment, will keep away false spiritual leader/teachers, and ‘worship-the-guru’ fakes. If someone mandates you have to come to him or her to find truth or God, run the other way as fast as you can. True spiritual masters are intent on re-creating themselves without the need to be called ‘master’.
Through spirituality the ‘mysteries’ of religions are directly revealed placing individuals in a constructive relationship to the unknown, allowing them to grow and expand as they are initiated into universal truths and learn how to apply them in their lives without any of the destructive aspects of dogma. When one surrenders to not knowing, this allows universal possibilities to become life probabilities. It is challenging for the human mind (housing the ego) to surrender to not knowing or realizing wisdom can and does come from outside the human mind. The human mind may just be ‘a receiver’ of wisdom from higher realms, not an originator. Entertain the thought that all evolution and progress of humankind has come from inspiration transmuting into transformation, inspired from higher realms.
The word ‘eslesia’ translates as church in many languages and means ‘gathering of people.’ It is time, if you so choose, to create communities of true love, equality, harmony and balance where the diversity of humanity is embraced all the time. It is time to be the message of spiritual wisdom in all ways. Religious leadership and ‘expertise’ is one thing, spiritual self-empowerment is something else that truly embraces the god-force within each one. In this new era, studying and connecting with the unseen forces of creation affirms your self-empowerment by knowing who you are and why you are here.
Peace in the world will come when humanity has learned to heal the relationship with self and requires this healing of their leaders. The healing of self comes through a deep examination of self through a personal process supported with universal spiritual wisdoms that are easily accessible in the world today. Peace will come through the ‘reason of being’ in being human, not through some religious dogma. Some of the most religious places on Earth have been in constant conflict for eons and the most destructive wars have been founded upon religion, not the precious nature of human life.
The future of religious organizations can only survive if they transition through radical change and offer healed conscious leadership rather than authority, example (being the message) rather than dogma, divinity rather than being right, no moral edicts, and giving up control. Emphasis would not be on the size of membership but on wisdom and service.
Healing and true spirituality are essential aspects of one another. The purpose of spirituality is to assist humanity in healing. It is emotions and thoughts that affect the energy flow within physical bodies that cause dis-ease. Easing life through authentic spiritual practice, understanding the true cause and effect of dis-ease (by bringing ones spiritual essence into being to balance what is unbalanced) is what is needed. Right now, most medicine treats symptoms without knowing the cause. It is time within the evolution of humanity that all humans understand and apply the variables in true healing. Extensive healing wisdom from higher realms is available to humanity. Ask and ye shall receive.
Attitudes regarding religious and spiritual traditions have varied for a long time. These touch on deep and sensitive beliefs and emotions. Follow your own resonance and discernment regarding which path you chose. Have respect for one another’s paths. Humanity is being asked to celebrate their diversity (especially since they are each other in disguise). Religions will only survive and evolve by not being defensive and integrating diversity as a maturing process. You can be loyal to your own spiritual views and also have accepting respect for the viewpoint and method of another. This does not mean you agree with another but rather that you accept alternative views.
Each human progresses at different points on their life’s path/journey and most are doing their best to make sense of life, but it is essential to respect another’s approach. Learn from one another without activating ego defenses (surrounding wounds). Right now, there is much abuse as to how ‘religious’ and ‘spiritual’ views are being perceived in the world. These views have been politicalized and are creating much duality, separation and confrontation in the world. Two sides are often manipulating one another while failing to meet the needs of the people they serve. Governments and corporations basically care only about control and profit; a new paradigm can only be created through true spiritual guidelines. Deep within each individual is a need and hunger for a meaningful spiritual experience. Gift this to yourself now. Trust and respect one another enough to recognize your common humanity in your search for meaning.
Affirm that your future can be created through a unified consciousness, knowing that separation is artificial and destructive to your innate being. Celebrating humanity’s diversity will create a constructive world built upon communities of love, equality, harmony and balance (sound familiar?).
