No God. No Atheists
March 26, 2011
In the beginning, not a word could be heard, just silence. Shortly after the beginning, I can imagine was a ‘sound’. The word for God in any language was a ‘man made god’ sound to represent an explanation for the ‘why’ of every question, and to alleviate fears of life’s seeming meaninglessness. At some point, those with perhaps less heart, and more mind arose to ‘debunk’ this ‘figure in the sky who was all knowing, and everywhere, even peeping from the closet to see if you’re naughty or nice. No wonder people are so ‘f-u’ or discombobulated!
Bottom line: There is ‘No God’! There is God! Both are lies!! However, everyone is free to use the word in reverence or anger, and that goes for all other uses of ‘god’ in infinite languages. The door opened for the ‘religion sheep salesman’ to herd the ‘sheeple’ into his corral, sometimes called a church, to preach ‘fire and brimstone, hell to the sinner – and ya all have sinned’, come to me as ‘god’s representative’ and let you be ‘saved from eternal damnation’.
Now, the average emotional age of people according to psychologists, is from 7 to 13 years of age, and until not that many decades ago, most lived into their 40’s, and then ‘pffft’! More fear of the unknown! Give a little candy when poking with fear, and you spiritually molest all but the atheists and the true spiritual seekers. Mankind has been too busy with survival and responsibilities to ‘fact check’ these ‘well intended lobbyists for God, and his saviors or prophets.
A ‘state of life’s infinite vicissitudes’ is a better way to open mankind to see and experience the realms of reality, and going beyond the ‘veils of mystery’ on one’s own choice. ‘Godliness’ is perhaps a good word to use for life’s many aspects and hopes. Godliness is life and love open to support the eternal journey of all through the mysteries.
Ernest Holmes, a 20th century spiritual teacher said it well – “The soul is the one triumphant, indestructible and unconquerable thing you possess. Shot from the Invisible into this experience, it constitutes your great reality. But why wait for physical death to enjoy and experience your immortal being? Do not prepare to die. Prepare to live, whether you are ten years old or one hundred. There is no death. It is impossible for you to die. Stop trying to die and learn to live.”
And another said, “The great way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
When love and hate are both absent everything becomes clear and undisguised.
Make the smallest distinction, however, and heaven and earth are set infinitely apart.
If you wish to see the truth then hold no opinion for or against….
The struggle of what one likes and what one dislikes is the disease of the mind.” Godliness
