I was reading this latest article released on religion and I just had to comment on it. Not a long post, just a few of my inner thoughts because I think it is so important for people to hopefully feel secure in these crazy and unreliable times we are living in. Yes, religion has taken a beating as more and more people wake up to truth. Religion was a great way to control the masses or so they thought at the time. Times have thankfully changed. I have never been a religious person. Do I believe in God? Most definitely. Do I believe he can only be found in church with a priest? No! I began to question the validity of religion when it was constantly mentioned that we were supposed to be God fearing men. What? Did anyone ever stop and think about that statement? If God is loving and cares for all people, why in heavens name should he be feared? To keep us in line, believing what we are supposed to believe, doing what we are supposed to be doing.
That is not the God I know, that is organized religion with an agenda behind it. This is why so many people are leaving their churches in droves. They have seen through the agenda and once they do, there is no going back to the way things were. It is for this reason I just wanted to remind people that true security and faith and hope comes from believing in oneself and ones spirit. I’m not suggesting anyone not go to church if that brings you deep calm and peace, I’m just suggesting that that same calm and peace lies within each of us. If we can connect with our spirit within it can never be taken away from us, we are never left with a huge void to fill, we don’t have to feel alone and without faith, vulnerable and insecure. We have been taught to believe only someone outside of ourselves can bring us that peace.
Creator is not only found in church. He/she is in everything we see around us, in nature, in everyday miracles, even in disasters if we just look! There is good to be found in all bad. We may not see it right away but it will bless us eventually if we are patient. Creator is the spring flowers that have begun to unfold their beauty for us, he/she is there also in beautiful sunsets and sunrises, even in strangers sent our way we encounter who bring us lessons to be learned if we pay attention. Creator surrounds us everywhere, everyday. If you miss worshiping everyday, set up a quiet space in your home where you can go and share your prayers. Start paying attention to Synchronicity. If that book drops to the ground in front of you in the library pick it up and read it. If you are running late for work and a huge truck is stalled in the road in front of you, do not panic and grow angry. That truck is there for a reason you just don’t know what it is yet.
I guess why I really mentioned this at all is because I don’t want to think of people out there afraid and alone and feeling lost without faith or hope. It is always with you deep inside, we were just taught we had to go to church to find it. No we don’t! That is my message I wish to convey. You are complete just as you are in every sense of the word, it just takes you believing it is so. Think for yourself, be yourself, care about yourself. You are all you ever needed and just didn’t know it.
Blessings and love to all ❤ ,
