We have more power within us than we know, more strength and capabilities than we can imagine. We just have to get out of our own way and remove the things from our lives that tell us otherwise.
We as humans have become clingy in certain ways, be it to other people, Religion, deities, illness, and other things. We allow those things to restrict the strength and healing that resides with in each of us.
It is you that is responsible for how you allow things to restrict you or make you feel. You allow thing in life that hurt you, bring you down, or that you feel dependant on. You may not think you can do it yourself, be by yourself, or that you aren’t strong enough. Those are lies, all of them.
From a spiritual perspective we are all connected to the energy or source (whatever you with to call it) that gives us life. We are all made of the same star dust. We are all capable of utilize the energy and power that this world provides for us, to make our life what we want it to be, to heal ourselves and help heal others, to be whatever greatness we want to be, to give back to the world and the earth, to make this existence/experience better for everyone.
We just have to purge the things in this world that would have us believe otherwise.
Some people, are kind and peaceful with their religion, others, love to beat you with their holy books. Some people, make me hate the Religion I used to follow. Their love is lathered in hate. They “loving” tell people how broken they are, according to their beliefs and make those who don’t live by those beliefs lives harder. I know you all think you are saving the world, but you are actually harming those who don’t fit into your religious box. You religious people need to be you and let others be themselves. Manipulating the world to form to your Religions has been destructive throughout each of their Historical times, right through to today. It’s hard seeing the pain and suffering in people eyes because they don’t fit to their family religious beliefs, so they have no support. It’s hard watching them try to be someone they are not, which in turn is destructive to their well being, to try to fit into a religious box.
If you truly want to spread peace and love, let your Religion be between you and your God. That is a personal relationship you share with your deity, that does not need to flow out onto others. Educate yourself on the history of the world and the history of your Religion, outside of your holy book and you might learn a thing or two. Open your eyes and realize that your religious words and actions overflowing from yourself is poison to so many. You be you and let others be them. Peace can only be found when you allow people to be who they are and do not attempt to for a change on others, that is unhealthy for them. Until this is a realization, there will never be peace in our world.
I used to share my Religion with the world too. I was taught, that what I was doing was in love. Once I stepped outside and actually viewed it from the eyes of others and researched my own Religions past, things changed.
Satan is powerless, people give Satan power. Remember that. Even the Bible says, “Lucifer” was gods most beautiful angel, not most powerful. If this is true, he has no power, if he even exists at all.
One of the things I’ve noticed since I let go of religion, is that it has a serious strong hold on those who allow it. There is nothing swaying nor pushing me anymore, only “I” who am the author and director of my life. Which in turn, means that people are within themselves, innately good or innately bad. Our being has the choice to be as it is, which I believe for most is innately good. We allow ourselves to be swayed by others to be something else, like parents/care takers, Religions/cults, hate groups, societal beliefs or even medications can alter how someone would be or act, without it. In essence, allowing those strong holds to dictate and drive our lives, keep us in fear, give us someone or something to blame for the struggles in life or bad things we do, and even give someone credit for the good things that happen to us or that we make happen by our actions.
Freedom is found looking within yourself, finding out who you are too the depths of you, and learning the strength and power inside you.
Not everyone is meant to be monogamous, and there are other options, but many people because of societal pressures/beliefs or religious pressures/beliefs will not even look into them. They end up in a constant struggle and chances are will continue to cheat or be miserable, because they succumb to something they are not. Being honest with who they are, would resolve a lot of the sexual dishonesty in relationships.
Some types of relationships:
Is there a valid reason to have assult rifles?
Short answer, NO.
The vileness of the fact that people find more value in these guns than human life, should be enough to show you the selfishness and darkness in their hearts. There is no actual need to have a weapon of war on our streets. None, that over shadow the value of human life. Religious cults and their thoughts and prayers won’t work, they haven’t worked. Your god, whomever that may be isn’t going to come down and fix this, it’s up to those of us who value human life to fix what the ignorant have allowed.”
I am having a hard time stomaching the darkness in the right-wing people of this country. The darkness of the people from a religion I once loved, is also astounding.
While reading and researching some much history lately, it seems like one of the key players in human beings, being hateful, judgmental, cruel, murderous, or speaking down to others has to do with religion. Religion gives many people the thought, that they have this power to dictate the lives of others, because they read or are told what is in a religious book. They take their perspective or the perspective of the one teaching them, about the book, passage, or verse, and feel that they alone have the right knowledge and only answer for all people to live by. They take that and they use it to press on others how they should live their lives, even if, they themselves don’t follow all the rules of their religion. The majority of these people have no idea about the history around when their religion was created, they walk blindly forward, harming all in their path, because they believe people are supposed to be a certain way. Each and every one of them are wrong.
If there is a God, then each and every single person’s relationship with that God is a personal one. No one else can dictate who that person was born to be or how that person should live their life. The moment you cross the line where you begin enforcing YOUR faith on someone else, you have gone too far. Most of the major religions play this out as a rescue mission. They not only control their follower’s lives, but their actions towards others. They see their actions and words as a kindness, or a life boat to those they come across that are not living according to their religion.
There are so many sects and varying beliefs in each religion, that the way somethings are seen, as opposed to others will continually have them waring for who is right, who’s God is right, and who is worshiping this God the right way. Little do many of them know, that all their religions connect? Some of the major religions, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam all connect, they all spin off of Judaism and they all worship the same “God.” Yet, they are the ones that bring about war the most, be it physical or intellectual. There is a barrier there though, between the three that leave many ignorant of their own understanding of God they share, there is a language barrier and a lack of communication with the others in the same base religions. Though, without research you would never come to know this simple fact and thus never find peace among themselves.
