How long will we allow Religion to Rape our Spirituality…

The exploitation of spirituality by religions across the world…

Spirituality and religion are two realms that can be mutually exclusive but happen to coincide more often than necessary.   If I dare use this comparison: I view Spirituality as the victim of a psychologically abusive abductor in the form of Religion.  This may be quite a sensitive subject because, as Stockholm syndrome would dictate, we have fallen in love with our capturer.  We are under the illusion, a comfortable subjective truth, that Religion is dogma—that religion is absolute truth, that religion is our savior.  Since our capturer has provided all of our spiritual pfood, shelter, comfort, and fulfillment—it must certainly be the complete gamma of what spirituality has to offer.  We have identified with our capturer so much so that some of us have laid down our lives in the name of our religion.  Some of us have murdered in the name of our religion.  Some of us have stolen innocence and destroyed entire cultures in the name of our religion.  Some have sacrificed our first born in the name of our religion. So, what is this phenomenon known as religion and why is it distinguishable from spirituality?

Is there more to a spirit than what the constraints of language, imagery, expectation, and imagination can conceive?

I consider Religion a parasite.  A contrived parasite that has latched on to something very real that is spirituality– a living breathing entity that is constantly evolving.  As per my philosophy we (at least a fair portion of us) are light or spirit beings having a human experience.  However one may choose to articulate the matter: whether we be vibrational beings, energy beings, or light beings to me it is all leading to the same source.  One’s spirituality can not be denied or hidden.  Most have an innate sense that we’re here for a “greater purpose”.  Most have an unquenchable thirst to know “why” they are “here”.  The seed has been sown in all of us.  Now this journey to the source isn’t necessary easy or necessarily our purpose.  But religion has provided a gross over-simplification of a complex issue.

Religion has taken the concept of spirituality and held it hostage.  What is meant to be a means of freedom, a means of open communication of information, a medium of exchange, a medium of healing, a medium of empowerment has been replaced.  It has been replaced with strict dogmas that reduce everything to the black and white.  It has been replaced with spiritual atrophy. Man is convinced to disempower themselves and allow for their savior or external source to dictate the fates of their lives.

Many of the underdeveloped gifts that spirituality has bestowed upon us bleed through the oppression of religion.  There are revelatory gifts that some encompass in which religion cannot quiet.   There are untapped resources of physical self-healing that exist despite being taught otherwise. They call it the placebo effect—but it’s nothing more than the nescient or nascent ability of the mind to heal using our spiritual strengths.  Some of us have the ability to manifest our own futures by “speaking things into existence” and others have the ability of foresight (to know what is to come of us).  Ever been thinking of something and the person next to you seemingly reads your mind—and verbalizes what you were thinking?  Perhaps this was preverbal spiritual truth—how we as beings communicated before our de-evolution into our current state.

I do not know all of the gifts that our spirits have to offer but I am aware enough to know that they exist and have courage enough not to deny their presence.  But this is not an exposition of man’s gifts.  This is an exposition of how the regulation of these gifts has been used to victimize us.  How these gifts have been stifled and replaced with a rudimentary quality of life and existence. Some of the most powerful beings on this planet have the slightest idea of their potential.  Brilliant minds and brilliant souls are falling to the wayside. –And in the name of what?

Now I don’t want to completely condemn religion because it does have its place.  It can be the building block of something special.  It teaches discipline and can provide a launching off point of where spirituality can take us.  We all have various levels of intelligence and discernment and maybe religion can be something great for a portion of society.  But to deem it the end all be all is tragic– fatal. And it keeps the gifted among us from being valued, from elevating our species, and helping to repair our collective consciousness.

How do we break the chains of our oppressor?  How do we leave our oppressor if we love our oppressor?  Is being in captivity so bad if I’m being taken care of?

When one manipulates the possibilities of the inevitable it impedes growth.  When you start people off and dictate the end result of their life before they are even born there is no room for growth. Their whole life is oriented towards achieving one destination or avoiding the other.  Spirits are meant to grow, expand, engage, create, and so forth.  None of this is possible when the possibilities don’t exist in the mind…If the possibilities can’t even be fathomed.. The existence can’t even begin to be manifested…

Freedom… America… A Monster too BIG to sustain…

It is said every great empire eventually meets its ruin…

If you would be kind enough to allow an analogy, I’d like to give that which we call America the depiction of a living entity– that of a monster. A monster too big to be restrained or held in any type of cage. A monster that seeks only conquest as well as servitude and eventually devours all rivals. A Monster so big that its only concern is its own survival… A survival that it will seek out by any means. It will go to the extreme of eating its young or feeding off itself when necessary…

Freedom is its greatest weapon. Freedom is its biggest allusion.. The ideal of freedom is how it lures its prey in and feeds its young.  Yet there is so much unfreedom that the collective consciousness of its citizens can’t help but act out.  –Birthing monsters out of men. The unfreedoms push people to act out in a variety of psychic unconscious ways… Some seek true freedom through sexual exploits (sexual liberation or grotesquely deviant sexual acts) … Some seek true freedom through violent acts… Some seek freedom through drowning out the unfreedoms via drugs or alcohol… Some through food…And others, like their mother America, seek freedom through the conquering and controlling of others…

Yet this all works in America’s favor. A monster that requires human sacrifice to thrive… A human sacrifice because she is willing to eat her young…As is America’s economy is its life blood and America’s economy thrives off  of man’s vices… Man’s low self esteem and insecurities is truly the building blocks of America’s economic model–the end result of a vast spending power …

The strength of a man is to know who he is… The strength of America is for a man to be ignorant of self.. It keeps the skewed balance of power in tact… America keeps it’s young in zoo cages…Ignorant of the fact they are indeed men but reinforcing the idea that they are caged monsters as their mother.  These cages are grandiose and glamorized but on the most basic level they are zoo cages nonetheless… Inundated by brick and mortar… Some go hours upon hours without ever even seeing the sun…They wake up in a Box. They travel to work in a Box with wheels… Enter a big Box.. Sit in an box with windows if lucky.. If not a smaller box surrounded by other caged monsters of various degrees.. Leave work and find relief by staring into or at a Box.. Then finally go to sleep in the same box they woke up in–living to repeat the cycle.

Man’s biology has barely had enough time to adapt to this lifestyle of living… If we’re using the premise that men have been evolving over millions of years, this recent caged phenomenon of the modern era is a quite sudden influx.  Our bodies aren’t adapting as smoothly to this life style as we would have liked to imagine. Just look around at the rampant obesity and and influx of disease…We’re struggling to adapt physically because we’re really aren’t designed to live as a monotonous machine.. And If our body hasn’t adapted to such slavery one can imagine how the mind has struggled (better yet the soul)… The psyche or psychic undercurrent of an individual.. Our Subconscious is coping to such a dull perspective of reality… I imagine it constantly acts out and is the source of much deviance as a means of self-medicating… I imagine plenty of resentment is projected on any and all other li’l caged monsters America has birthed…I imagine it would be the cause of most destruction man inflicts upon each other.  For when you see others as monsters as opposed to men it becomes very easy to treat them as such.

What is the true nature of man.. The beginning… Who are you? What are you?   Simple questions… With profound implications… Maybe the answers alone could provide true freedom…
