You’re Far More Powerful than You are Told!®

A crisis of spiritual intelligence

Early in its history, religion exercised a stabilizing influence on society by helping people spiritually. It challenged us to be loyal to the divine and compassionate with our fellow human beings. Today, orthodox belief systems have become a tool that empower those who claim to know the truth and use myths to psychologically manipulate us into believing what we are told. They promote the idea that salvation can only be realized through blind submission to doctrinal authority, intermediating our direct experience with God, and delaying our ability to reconnect with our divine nature. We have been deceived by those who have chosen authority as the truth, rather than truth as the authority. We need to believe in ourselves again and know that we can achieve great things by looking inwardly, by tapping the spark of the divine that exists in all of us.

Navigating through our existential and spiritual gridlock

Any faith that cannot survive collision with the truth is not worth believing in. This is why we need to question everything we are told and start to search for answers on our own terms. The more we learn and understand the true nature of the world and ourselves, the more understandable things will become, and we begin to see not only falsehoods and deceptions in plain sight but encounter hidden truths that will astound us. On our journey of self-discovery, we will realize that we need to be honest with ourselves and keep our mind uncluttered from the assumptions and dogmas of centuries of orthodoxy. Our experience will take us down the road less traveled, yet a road well worth taking.

My time on Earth is to fulfill that for which I was created, to realize my true human and spiritual potential, to embrace all that is noble and compassionate in me, and to leave this world a better place than when I found it.

My belief in a “God” that is dynamic nature in action, growing and changing has made it easier for me to reconnect with my spirituality and inspired me with the confidence that life does not end in death, but transcends it. It took a while, but I have come to see that the entire natural universe is identical with divinity and that the universe conceived of as a whole is “God” and, conversely, that there is no “God” but the combined substance, forces, and laws that are manifested in the existing universe. In other words, everything composes, and is composed of, an all-encompassing, immanent “God” who is revealed in the orderly harmony of what exists, and who’s spirit is manifest in the laws of the universe.

Spirituality is not theology or ideology; it is a pure and original way of life. Our spiritual task is to discover the infinite in the life of the finite. To be in awe of the universe and “God’s” spirit that has created it and is imbued in it. To experience the sensation of the mystical and the ever-expanding dimension of consciousness.

The intuitive mind is a sacred gift, part of a network linking us to our higher selves, the universe and each other. And true religiousness is based on the fact that we are all are created with the same spiritual rights. It transcends religious and supernatural “Gods” and avoids dogmas and theology. It arises from our ability to experience our true and divine presence in the universe; for to fathom the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty is at the center of true religiousness.

Today’s world shatters the soul and severs the connection to our inner selves. We are the architects of our own happiness, and creators of our own misery. Our life will always be filled with hardship and challenges, so it is best to admit this and decide to be happy anyway. This perspective will help you to see that there is no path to happiness. You must make happiness your path, for you’re more powerful than you are told!®

I leave you with these incredibly profound, universal, and introspective words about true religiousness as advocated by one of the greatest geniuses and humblest minds of the 20th Century; Mr. Albert Einstein.

“The most beautiful and most profound religious emotion that we can experience is the sensation of the mystical. And this mysticality is the power of all true science. If there is any such concept as a God, it is a subtle spirit, not an image of a man that so many have fixed in their minds.”

“Try and penetrate with our limited means the secrets of nature and you will find that, behind all the discernible laws and connections, there remains something subtle, intangible and inexplicable. Veneration for this force beyond anything that we can comprehend is my religion. To that extent I am, in fact, religious.”

“My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble minds. That deeply emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God.”

And this my all time favorite…

“We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangements of the books but does not know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.”
