Worshipping a Jew
September 1, 2015
The average Jewish person of intelligence does not worship any man or deity! The average Jew does not think of themselves as one of the ‘chosen ones’ that isolates them from all humankind as ‘special’. To ‘worship’ anything is to let your imagination convince you that something is greater than you that needs your total adulated submission too for good fortune, and necessity of enhancement of your life, possibly forever. Humans, being endowed with qualities of the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual have always fallen short of the best use of these qualities creating a sense of powerlessness and fear.
To be Jewish is to come from a Jewish mother, but sometimes a jewish father can work along with the few who study the Jewish holy works and becomes accepted as Jewish. A jew is first a human, although like the Jewish holy books, there are thoughts that are contrary to the highest behavior such as in the Jewish Talmud saying unless you are a Jew you are not human, even if one who devotes their life to awareness, compassion, and discernment. Most Jews have for centuries kept within themselves wherever they might be, enriching their culture, and state in life inspire of tremendous perils directed at them from different cultures, such as during World War ll.
Conscious Jews typically do not ever worship one of their own or another human, but see that ‘godliness’ is within each one to seek, and find or not. Like in any group, particularly one with millions, there are spoilers, or those who only carry their name but do little to emulate the values expressed. Jews have their share of scoundrels and certainly have been maimed throughout history by other group’s neanderthal like behaviors.
Few intelligent Jews follow who some have claimed is the messiah, and the many Jews I’ve met have a way of seeing and looking at reality. Jews normally don’t worship anyone or thing. Many Jews are amused, as I am, by billions taking stories that were meant to guide ancient, simple man to a livable path of right living as meant for them.
To worship is to create division between you and what can be appreciated, loved, or accepted as part of high conscious behavior. Be one with the harmonious positioning of everything for maximum results. It’s best to know when to uncork and let go of the imagination while bottling common sense. Alway remember, first be a loving, aware human being apart from all belief systems. Even though the best religion researchers for myth vs reality, have found no credible, objective evidence of any of the ‘characters’ mentioned in all of the ‘holy books’. Inspite of that, the stories have significance for manifesting a life filled with compassion and common sense. Without a total love of your inner self, living in divine, conscious, godliness is not possible.
