Love Cancels Religion
February 21, 2013
Love is better than any religion! No, not puppy love or ‘love with strings’, but a real, deep, authentic love. Just because someone can shoot a basketball, doesn’t mean they can be a professional player. The majority experience some degree of love, even if it’s with their dog or cats. All wives or husbands, boyfriends or girlfriends are quick to acknowledge love for their partner. Love is an easy emotion to obtain, and yet fizzle to a memory as well as occasional spurts of feeling. That’s not the love that cancels attachment to any religion. Of course, the mind may cancel religion, most likely before it’s ‘embedded’.
My driver this morning mentioned his brother called him last night, and said it was -50º with windchill at his home in Minnesota. I asked if he had been to our ‘paradise’ town?
‘A few times’, he said. My question was then ‘why doesn’t he move out of there to at least someplace better’? He said that his wife was too attached to her family (30 years married). It’s the same thing with religion, once ‘embedded’ there is little hope to question the ‘religion’, and seek better answers which are always rationalized away. The fear of the ‘unknown’ often gives birth to uncomfortable complacency. This is ‘YOUR LIFE RIGHT NOW’! Better options start with seeking them!
My clear experience is that when love with another rises to a peak where the ‘false’ you is ‘gone’, and both are of one mind and heart, there is a permanent change. Part of that change is to see that you, and your experiences are focused on the highest expression especially the emotional, spiritual, and general being. In that state, if you had been attached to a religion, it disappears. You become the ‘vehicle’ for a religiousness that is apart from anyone else’s words, call it perhaps a ‘spiritual high’.
There are two paths to an enlightened consciousness. One path is through meditation, the other through love, or what I call ‘lovitation’. Either path rarely reaches it’s peaks, as the ‘seeker’ settles into an ‘ego satisfaction’ that falls short only leaving them with glimpses of what could be. It is not possible to experience the bliss and joy of the showerings of meditation, or deep love if attached to ANYTHING, and that includes ‘ideologies or religion’. Before the real can be seen, the false needs to be ‘let go’ of. To ‘see’ is arduous judging from the billions who ‘lock step’ to religions. Seek to be in your heart, and with awareness as well as ‘discernment’ to climb out of ‘programming’. It’s a breeze once you reach the level of ‘intelligence’!
