One Truth

Religion-(Latin: religare- Union)  means that institutional realization of the existence of God,The Creator, and one’s relationship to it. Its your union with divinity.

Theology- ( Latin equivalent, theologia, as “reasoning or discussion concerning the Deity” )means the attempts of men to ascribe personality, qualities, and characteristics to it; their theories regarding its affairs, will, desires, plans, and designs, and their assumption of the office of “ middle-men” between The Creator and the people.

Philosophy- means the inquiry after knowledge of things knowable and thinkable.

Metaphysics- means the attempt to carry the inquiry over and beyond the boundaries and into regions unknowable and unthinkable, and with the same tendency as that of Theology.

Consequently, both Religion and Philosophy means that things have roots in Reality. While Theology and Metaphysics have roots in man made fantasy of things not able to be known, but given a feeble attempt to make sense.

Now that we have a foundation of meaning we can now speak on Religious belief in the Creator.

If Religion means belief in the existence of a Higher Power and Theology is our attempt to make sense of it …then is there a need for a middle man or religious dogma?

This is something I have been asking myself for sometime now. What am I?? or more to the point what religious belief system am I associated with?? I have children and I want to bring them up with the Love of the Creator but not in the context of religious dogma.

I realized that this is my Ego wanting to latch onto something. I am of a Christian background as is my wife. So coming from this system I feel the need to identify with a group. The New Age movement I felt might be the closest. After some thought, this is actually a cult or the beginning of a religion. They speak about the “path”, “the Law of Attraction” and “good vibrations” but I feel they are doing a grave injustice to the teachings that stem from Hermetic and Kabbalah schools of thought. There is no talk of God only channeled higher beings bringing messages. In reality there is no such group, only a school of religious philosophy that aligns your soul with your true purpose. 

See we are creatures of habit. It feels comfortable to go to Church on Sunday. Kneel, sit , kneel, sit ,listen to the sermon, sing, pass the plate, go up for communion … and TADA your soul is saved. HUH?! No work is required? No feeling or genuine prayer from the heart is needed?  The meaning to the ritual is lost in the mundane. We go up like zombies and think that if we say 5 Hail Mary prayers we are absolved of sin.

The other misconception is that we need a savior. Why? Jesus teaches us how to act and to leave worldly goods in order to get to heaven. He also stated on more than one occasion that “..The father is within me and me in the Father…” This is to illustrate that we all have The Creator within us. We are here to learn what it means to be human. There is only the repenting of the sin within our minds. The Devil mind.

We dont need someone to stand up on a pulpit and give us “his/her” interpretation of holy text. With a bit of reason and life experience we can read it and come to our own conclusion. This goes for all religions. Religions, or more importantly religious texts, are to be lived, read, experienced as a spring board to higher understanding. One cant grow if one does not think for himself.

It’s called a habit for a reason. I say this because we follow like sheep without ever know why we do it. “Well my dad is a (insert religion) and so is my father and his father….its just what we do.” I for one decided to think for myself so I share my understanding with all of you. The 1st step is to question. But we are not to question the Law of our chosen Deity now are we? Yes you are. For we have free will.

So I believe in One Creator, One Omnipresent Omnipotent being above all human and natural laws. This being manifests when it wants in the form of the masculine and feminine aspects of duality. This being we call God. A being that descends to us to guide us along a forgotten path. A path in which our souls choose to experience this unconsciousness in order to learn how to return back with knowledge of the Creator. We are to use holy books as a way to understand what we cant really comprehend for many half truths are displayed in plain sight. It is up to us to decipher via our personal experience. We are to use all tools provided to us.{Tarot,Cosmology,Crystals,Alchemy, other religious texts.etc} Do not think this or that is blaspheme or pagan. With the proper usage of these tools we are to go into our heart and feel God. Use the Laws of Nature and the Golden Rule to live a pious life of giving. Live with the intent to give back to others and in turn raise the vibration of love within you to come closer to The Creator. For I have no tie to any one religious dogma. I only wish to come closer to The Creator and to give back the love which is ever filling the cup of my physical being.

May you find the answers to your questions that you put forth with loving intent.

The fog will lift

Dear Friends,

I sat down with my computer this morning, intending to write you a note and thinking I would tell you about the beautiful blue-skied day we are having here in Southern California, but when I opened my window shades to look out over the ocean it was missing altogether. We are temporarily covered here in a blanket of fog. I can barely see across my deck. I laughed right out loud.

The good news is the fog will lift and the beautiful blue sky will return. And because I am so certain of that, I can easily settle in and enjoy this foggy morning. So, I wrapped myself in a warm blanket and lit my outside fireplace and enjoyed the contrast of a different kind of day.

Abraham has helped me to know that there is no point in railing against the fog, or anything, for that matter. I’m learning that I can find satisfaction in just about whatever is currently happening, because I understand that everything that is happening is temporary and there are so many wonderful things in the process of becoming.

Every single person on the planet and every single Consciousness in the Universe has the same experience of being here and having a desire to be there. In other words, it is the promise of this eternal Universe. You’re always, always, always going to be on your way to something more - always. And when you relax and accept that, and stop beating up on yourself for not being someplace that you’re not, and instead, start embracing where you are while you keep your eye on where you’re going - now life becomes really, really, really fun.

Enjoy the present moment and it will take you to where you want to go - jan troutt

Direction is more important than speed.
—  Become aware of what your intention is. What your dreams are. Nurture them. The details have a tendency of manifesting at the right time.
We promise you, if you pay the price of happiness… if you are willing to change your thoughts, even though the current reality doesn’t justify the happy thought, it is our promise to you that, if you are able to direct your thought and sustain more positive emotions, that the manifestations you have been seeking must come. And they must come fast! It is Law. It is our absolute promise to you.
—  Abraham-Hicks
“Tell everyone you know: “My happiness depends on me, so you’re off the hook.’ And then demonstrate it. Be happy, no matter what they’re doing. Practice feeling good, no matter what. And before you know it, you will not give anyone else responsibility for the way you feel-and then, you’ll love them all. Because the only reason you don’t love them, is because you’re using them as your excuse to not feel good.”
—  Esther Hicks
While it does, and should, feel good to be appreciated by another person, if you are dependent upon their appreciation to feel good, you will not be able to consistently feel good, because no other person has the ability, or a responsibility, to hold you as their singular, positive object of attention. Your Inner Being, however, the Source within you, always holds you, with no exceptions, as a constant object of appreciation. So if you will tune your thoughts and actions to that consistent Vibration of Well-Being flowing forth from your Inner Being—you will thrive under any and all conditions.
