Religion

religion-1

 

 What is religion? Where did if first come from? Did you ever wonder why are there so Religions? Or why there are so many Gods? There is a Christian, Jewish, Catholic, Mormon, Buddha, Muslim, even a New Age God,  just to name a few. So with so many religious concepts of God, how are we to know which is the real one?

Are you sure the Religion and God you have chosen to worship, is the real provable one, because if you cannot prove there is a God, what do you really have? Just a belief and  what good is a belief in time of need? That’s right, no good at all.

Besides your Religion telling you there is a God just what proof do you have that there is  a God?  If God were something real, wouldn’t It let you know first hand?  Wouldn’t God want you to know him? Personally?

Doesn’t the fact that there are so many conflicting religious beliefs of, on or about God, tell you that God is a complete mystery to the world?

WHY?

All Religions Are Based On Beliefs.

NOT FACTS.

Beliefs are, ‘opinions.’ And ‘opinions’ are ‘beliefs without proof.’ And  beliefs can change. Religion started out with the Sun, then followed with  mythology.Mythology  is, ‘an imaginary or fictitious thing  person’. ‘Not fact or logic.’ There just is no proof as to whether a God or Gods existed then or now. None.

Religions are based on faith and faith is only a, belief’. People need to believe that there is ‘something’ more, so they invented-

God, Gods, Goddess, Deities and Religions. 

According to Webster’s, religion means a,  ‘set of beliefs concerning the cause of all things.’ So, Religion is a, set of beliefs.  And just because a belief is agreed and accepted as factual, does not make it so. And just what is the belief of a God based on?  What ‘facts’?

In the case of Religion, the only facts they have, are passed down beliefs. So, your religion is you agreeing and accepting the beliefs of others. Your Religion is you agreeing with someone else’s opinion of the reality of a God based on THEIR understanding. Not yours. Theirs.

Religion is a ‘belief in, worship of, or obedience to a supernatural power or powers considered to be divine or to have control of human destiny.’

Again, a  belief. Not a fact.

From the beginning of Religion, each of these religious groups choose the God they believe is the real God,  then do their best to convince all others that their God is the real and only God. For some reason most of these religious groups think it’s their duty to force the world into their beliefs.  Odd that any God of any religion would want His followers to be so hateful of others.

Religion started with terrible conflict and all these thousands of year later, NOTHING HAS CHANGED. The fact is no Religion knows GOD. They know what they think they know, but all they know is what they have been taught to know of God. By other men.Not by a God.

Unless God is personal, to you, You do not have  any God and unless God speaks directly to YOU, you have no God. You have a belief. A  belief you call God.All based on what man has told you even though we have been told we should not listen to man.

fmxzv1486573506-2

Think of this, religion  means, ‘conscientiousness,’  which means,’ just, upright,honest, faithful, devoted, dedicated.’

Religion then is not something that needs to be organized or has anything to do with groups or  with anyone or anything other than YOU.

Religion is, YOU being, just, upright, honest, faithful, devoted, dedicated. Religion is a personal thing and does not need to be organized.

It was man, whose breath is in his nostrils that created religions.

Sin_Main

F3AyEY1464634561

  bGDDOT1464643144

Do I say I have no sin? Yes I do, at least I think I don’t , but according to John… I do and I am deceiving myself by saying,  I do not.

th

Maybe I do not understand what sin really is. Guess I should get my dictionary and find out, because I do not want to suffer.

Sin_Main

 Means to

‘offend’

Do I ever ‘offend? I’m sure I do.

So then when I offend someone, it will be me who suffers.

Do I ever get ‘offended? I do.

Then I am sinning and I will suffer for being offended.

Sin_Main - Copy

Means

‘anger’

Do I ever get ‘angry’? Yes, yes I do.

So each time I get ‘angry,’ I sin and I will suffer.

Guess I need to be AWARE of getting angry so I stop it before it starts, because I do not want to suffer.

Sin_Main

Means

‘displeasure’

Am I ever ‘displeased’ by ‘someone ‘or by ‘something’?

Yep, I do get ‘displeased.’

Then each time I am ‘displeased,’ I sin and I will suffer.

The Void

 Do Not Freak Out About This Post.

KweisC1445613543

Just what is the ‘truth’ we are to know? And if it is ‘truth’ that sets us ‘free’, what are we set free from?

Guess we should know a meaning for the word.

Truth, ‘what actually occurred.’

Okay, so what ‘actually did occur…in the beginning?

9uGgpr1445619196

And where might this ‘void’ exist, that ‘brings forth all things?

1= Consciousness  does not contain ‘forms’

And Consciousness IS -Where ALL things come from.

Then we are told

3

It clearly states that we, man  were created in  Gods

IMAGE AND LIKENESS

Why are we told God looked like man?

Or that we look like God?

If we do not?

Wouldn’t that mean, God, the Creator looks like us?

What else could it mean?

So

1==

Think about that one because, without God, without Consciousness, there wouldn’t be nothing.

 At least think about it because we are told that we are one with our God.  One with Consciousness.

And how about what man is today learning?

8

Yes, man  creates his world out of the VOID of his

Consciousness.

Just like the Creator from the Bible.

Mans Thoughts, Ideas and Images

  Project  out as   ‘forms.’

As US. As our REALITY.

And now seriously think about this one.

truth

Is the ‘truth’ we are to know, it is our self’s who are the creators?

egSaNe1445622503

If man is one with his God, Consciousness

Then God, Consciousness, is man and man is God, Consciousness

Is it not true…

Without God there is nothing.

Without Consciousness, there is nothing.

Without your Consciousness…There is nothing?

Will understanding this…set us free?

Double Minded

 jnngVa1443286221

Double means, ‘composed of two unlike parts’

2xu9mf1444746575

‘A double minded man’ is a man or women who  ‘combines’  GOOD  and BAD thoughts in his thinking.

hkAUm81443286660

Sometimes our GOOD thoughts weigh more than the BAD ones and all is GOOD.

PNJwf41443286797

But then we allow the BAD thoughts to out weigh the GOOD ones, and we encounter BAD things.

Yes, a double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

Family. Home. Work. Play. Love. Health.

 

aYMZw51443286564The only way not to be a double minded person is to STOP combining good and bad thoughts.

 

h718JY1444748985

Purify your THOUGHTS ‘double minded man.

Pure means, ‘not mixed.’

Buddhism

OCvJ691444070756

It seems like, YES.

YES, because Jesus did preach many of the beliefs of Buddha.

The Buddha like sayings by Jesus, were said by Buddha  500 or so years before Jesus. Jesus and his ways were much like those of Buddha.

OCvJ691444070756

Buddha: “Consider others as yourself.” Dhammapada 10:1

Jesus: “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” Luke 6:31

OCvJ691444070756

Buddha: “Abandoning the taking of life, the ascetic Gautama dwells refraining from taking life, without stick or sword.” Digha Nikaya 1:1.8

Jesus: “Put your sword back into its place; for all those who take the sword will perish by the sword.” Matthew 26:52

OCvJ691444070756

BUDDHA: “Perishable is a city built on sand.”

JESUS: “A foolish man, which built his house on sand.” Matthew 7:26

OCvJ691444070756

BUDDHA: “Confess before the world the sins you have committed.” (31)

JESUS: “Therefore confess your sins one to another, and pray one for another, that you may be healed.” James-5-16

OCvJ691444070756

BUDDHA: “Consider others as yourself.” (33)

JESUS: “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” Luke 6:31

OCvJ691444070756

These are only a few.

Could Jesus have studied Buddhism during his missing 3 years?

 

The above is all new to me, so I decided to take a COURSE in Buddhism to see what all I can find that would lead me to believe if Jesus followed Buddhism…since I always have to find my own facts and DO NOT FOLLOW HANDED DOWN OPINIONS AND BELIEFS.

Where Are They

Genesis_1-31

Not just good, but very good. Is this what you believe? Or do you believe what you read in Genesis 2:5 where you are told that God could not find his first Man.

‘There was no man to till the ground.’

Where was the first Male and Female that had already been created in Gods image and whom God called very good? Why could God not find, the Male and Female that he created? Where did they go?

Since it seems God lost his first Male and Female,  he has to start all over and create them again. According to the second creation, yes God did have to start over and so this time God did not make man in his image and likeness,  instead, man was made from

Dust Blowing

Dust? Dust means, ‘something of no worth.‘

Seems God no longer wanted his man to be made in his image and likeness. So this time he created man  from ‘something of no worth.’

It seems God also lost his first FEMALE, so  God decides not only to NOT make man in his likeness, he now decides his female should not be made in his image and likeness either, nor  made like the man made of dust.

Instead

3Lqcxe1447001854

So now we have a Male made of ‘dust’ and a Female made of a ‘rib’.

Interesting that a meaning for ‘rib’ is a ‘hoax,’ and a ‘hoax’ is a ‘fraud.’ Is it possible this man of ‘dust’ and woman of a ‘rib’, are ‘frauds?

If this story were true, man would have one less ‘rib’ than woman, but this is not true. Both male and female have the same amount of ‘ribs.’ 24 ribs each.

Dust also means, ‘confused.’

I guess God knew that because this  man  made of ‘dust, made of something of no worth’ and who was created ‘confused’ and ate from the tree, he was not the man he wanted. Nor did God want  the woman who was made from a ‘rib.’

This God did not want any part of this worthless, confused  man and the woman who was a ‘fraud,’ and he decides they should be punished and sent away.

‘Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow’

And then man is told

‘For dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return’.

Don’t you want to return to God?

If you do, there is a way.

It is to

Awake you that sleep for you are not make from something of no worth’.

Awake, become aware of the real you, made in Gods own image and likeness.

Awake, you are NOT  the man of dust.

Just remember, NO WHERE in the Bible does it say God woke the man made of dust from his sleep.

So the question is, do YOU want to wake up? Do you want to be aware of the YOU God  created in his image and likeness, and who he was pleased with? Or do you want stay asleep and live as the man of dust and the woman of a rib?

Awake means to ‘be aware.’

Aware that

4085075654_003319751c

Do you want to be one of the MANY who do become aware that you are NOT the man of dust or the woman from a rib?

YES

Many Mansions

1qogQh1438270823

What do you think when you think of what this passage could mean. Could it mean Jesus was telling man that God lived in a mansion? A large house in the sky? And in Gods mansion there were lots of rooms?  So, could that passage have a different meaning? Lets see.

 Here are some meanings for the word ‘mansion. A ‘residence’ and a residence is a place to ‘reside’ in. Now the meaning for ‘reside’ is interesting as it means,

existing  in something as a permanent and inseparable element ’

What exist in man, that is

‘permanent and  is an inseparable element?

His Consciousness, because mans Consciousness  is

‘permanent and inseparable’ from him.

Then does that mean that what is ‘existing’ in us that we call God, is really our Consciousness and that is who and what is us and our reality?

Maybe because

345421170165b294f92f9c5bdaad3250 - Copy

We are are not our own and we can know nothing because

vuKINO1438271789

Man can know nothing without  his Consciousness.

And we are told

12127762706_9fa8018e22_z

Again we are being told there is something IN us.

Could this one God, be our Consciousness?

Think, isn’t it Consciousness  that exist in us?

Is it also not true that there are ‘many mansions, many rooms, many areas within Consciousness? And is it not true that without Consciousness we have no body, no reality at all,  because it is only Consciousness that tells you anything, so without your Consciousness telling you have a body, or a world,  you do not have anything.

Was that what these Bible passages are trying to tell us? That we are not in or of our body, but that we, in reality exist in and as Consciousness? Could be, because

th

Again we are  told without God,  we can do nothing, just like   without Consciousness, we can do nothing.

Is this Bible passage saying

Consciousness is God?

What else could it mean? Certainly not that there is some God sitting in some mansion, some big house waiting for man to come to him.

How could man come to God, if he is already IN God?

Can man get out of God? Out of Consciousness?

Awake

And find that you and your reality do ‘exist  in something called

God

Spirit

Father

Consciousness

 And know they  are all are

ONE

And it is true

w

Yes, we do ‘exist’ in and of Consciousness,

also known as God and Spirit and Father.

So, how do you understand what many ‘mansions’ means?

Wake Up

a924040bedb40e65327c490694572d4a - Copy

What does one do when they sleep? They dream.

Dream- ‘a series of images in the mind.’

Images-‘thoughts and ideas, and a physical likeness made visible.’

When you are living your life, isn’t it comprised of

‘thoughts, ideas and visible physical things?

So your ‘dreams’ and your ‘awake’ life are just alike.

Like the ‘sleeper’, the one ‘awake’  believes the ‘mental images’ are real and present. But are they?

Maybe not, for thousands of years ago a man named Paul wrote to the people saying.

N1yjqQ1434825780

  He told the people to wake from their sleep.

Did Paul know something different about  sleeping  than we do?

Looking at the word ‘sleep’ you find it means,

‘having mental pictures of something not real and present.’

Sleep means, ‘not aware.

So the question is, why did Paul tell us to ‘wake up?

If ‘wake’ means, ‘being aware’ what did Paul want us to be aware of?

Was it being ‘aware’ that our appearances of things in this world, were really nothing real and present, but were in fact, us only seeing our mental images, as we sleep?

29192

Could this be what Paul meant?

Maybe, because  if it is true that God is ALL

Then there is NOT God and Man.

Why?

Because in reality, we do not live out here in this world.

Acts_17-28

Our only ‘being’ is God

Because All Is God

That means there is not God and Man

Man ‘sleeps’ and believes he is ‘awake’. But in order to really be ‘awake’ man must first    ‘wake up from his long held beliefs of God and man that he has been taught from man.

Wisdom

htY9PE1434571234

‘Wisdom is the principal thing’

Principal means, ‘most important.’

Why is ‘wisdom’ the most important thing for me to get?

Lets find out.

Wisdom is, ‘knowledge,’ and ‘knowledge’ is  ‘good judgment.

If wisdom is ‘good judgment,’ that  would mean if I am ‘judging’ anyone or anything other than good… I am not using my ‘wisdom,’ my ‘knowledge’ or my ‘good judgment.’

Wisdom being ‘knowledge, and ‘knowledge’  is, ‘interruption,’ which means to,‘clarify the meaning’.

That means whenever I am judging anyone or anything as not good…
I should use my ‘wisdom’ my ‘knowledge,’ which means I have to ‘re-interrupt’ what I’m judging as not good.

How, by ‘clarifying the meaning,’ of what I’m judging.
Clarify means, ‘free of impurities.’

Since ‘impure’ means, ‘mixing,’ that tells me, I have to use my ‘wisdom’ my ‘knowledge’ and my ‘good judgment’ and take time to rid my mind of mixing good and bad thoughts.

And I can because ‘wisdom’ also means the
‘ability to apply, to use what you have acquired mentally.’

And since ‘wisdom’ is a ‘ mental grasp,’ which means the
‘ability to think and act utilizing knowledge, and understanding ‘
I then can ‘interrupt’ my mental grasp’ and judge with my ‘wisdom’ that it is true, that

68zmpv1434561536

So…
I will not ‘judge’ the appearances of good and bad. Instead, I will use my ‘wisdom and knowledge of God, and I will
