Stress of Belief

In understanding the world around us through a scientific approach mankind has, through that passion to understand, gained a wider awareness of the universe.  This tends to make those persons who are blindly dedicated to limited man-conceived faith systems nervous, for those who are true seekers of enlightenment are willing to face the fact that we do not need supernatural explanations for what we see or do not see.  Scientific delving into the way things work and operate does not reduce the wonder and awe of Creation, nor does it instill a mechanistic view of the vast diversity that is necessary for maintaining balance in the process of manifesting all that is made visible to us.

All things that we see manifested around us may be better understood as out-buddings of creative energy.  Absolutely everything in the universe has emerged out of transformational charges of energy.  There is nothing in energy tranformations that must rely upon outside bits and pieces as in the assemply of some artifact; everything has manifested into existence through energy involvement, and has actually evolved into its definable form of existence.  This is understood in science, but is denied for the most part by those who take biblical tales literally.

Too many of the dogmatic “faithful” harbor suppressed feelings of dividedness because the tenets of their man-conceived faith system are deliberately designed to impose the faith system’s governing over personal spirit.  Man-formulated corporate-style faith systems do not really want anyone to think for themselves.  Physical sensuality, for example, is portrayed as a spiritual negative in conventional western faiths, but one’s spirit and one’s natural sensuality are never in any soul-threatening opposition.  The opposition is from the taught superstition that each person exists in some isolated state from the very power that sustains their life experience.  The intention of that holy lie is to make the individual feel incomplete.  That imposed feeling of self-lack is then played upon and claimed to be answered only by some man conceived faith system.  The fanatically devout commonly strive to make a virtue of that imposed inner sense of lack, but the faithful’s inner resentment at attempting to override their own basic circuitry is then too often revealed in their indulgence in hateful and degrading (and “sinful”) passing of negative judgments upon others who are unlike themselves.  The fanatically faithful of these formulated faith systems then stand out as sad examples of personalities that have been spiritually deformed by attempting to do the impossible task of cutting away part of their energy identity.

True piety is not a muscular activity; it is not something that can be grasped or enforced, for true piety—which properly refers to spiritual insight—rarely, if ever, comes when it is pursued.  Such an elated state of awareness can be pure only when it is encountered unsought.  In other words, genuine piety is a state of awareness that reveals itself when personal will is not anchored upon temporary material conditions.

This suggests spontaneity, which man-formulated faith systems, especially in the material-obsessed western world, routinely disapprove.  The reason for this is that spontaneity is personal responsiveness that has been elevated by the feeling of total emotional security.  The three structured and regimented religions of the western world stand more as monuments to spiritual paralysis than to spiritual rapture.  Being male-founded and male dominated, the three dominant western faith systems bristle with masculine rigidity and combative schemes for storming and taking possession of the keys of heaven.  In other words, these are faith systems that counsel believers to will themselves to support certain attack strategies which are deceitfully designed to influence believers to obsess over alleged soul-threatening weaknesses within themselves.  This inflexible understanding of true spirit is even illustrated in the lifeless rigidity that is cemented into the architectonic forms of churches, cathedrals, synagogues, mosques and the like.

Add into this assessment that the structured rituals devised in practically all Christian ceremonies were patterned upon the court ceremonies of Roman emperors.  Christianity had its origin in the aggressive Roman Empire, after all, so the stress placed upon obedience should not be surprising.  Judaism had been fashioned earlier as a regimented faith after the little kingdom of Israel to the north suffered military defeat to the Assyrians.  Thus it was militancy and materialism that prompted Judaism, devised in 8th century BCE Judah, to be a faith system of authoritarian laws.  Islam arose out of an atmosphere of constant tribal conflicts, and that background assured the aggressive “spirit” that then inspired invasion of regions around Arabia and the Mediterranean.  As a result, these three western “faith” systems predestined themselves to constant combative indulgences—spirit versus matter—which assures that believers of these strict faith systems will feel not only divided from all diverse life expressions, but even feel divided within themselves.   Consequently none of these man-conceived faith systems will ever experience the emotional security that is necessary for true spiritual advancement.

Under such rigid “guidance” the spiritual spontaneity of the believer is intentionally kept smothered down.  The greater “sin” that is perpetrated thus rests squarely within these three  regimented faith systems themselves, which methodically short-circuit the very creative energy that opens each person’s consciousness to Cosmic Consciousness.
