On Religion

I have come to learn that religion, from Buddhism to Christianity, to Islam, whatever the theology, all of them are just ways of telling a story about who God is, who we are and the purpose for being, and that I could simply drop the story, silence the chatter and hear for myself the answers to the questions of my life. I have found this way of being to greatly accelerate my personal growth as I learn to see God in everything and everyone.

When you are finally able to dislodge yourself from the prison of cultural conditioning, you will see the world with new eyes. It will be for you a rebirth. This is what that master teacher Jesus meant when he said, “Truly, truly, I say unto you, you must be born again.” In order to enter the kingdom of heaven, which, by the way he reiterated over and over again was “within.”, you must turn your gaze from the heavens, toward which our stargazing species have been looking from the beginning, and enter in.. penetrate into that subtle Universe from whence all things emanate. When we look to the stars, we are looking at the fringes of existence beloved.That which has already been spent. Upon looking within however, we reconcile ourselves with our beginnings…Our essential Selves, which just happens to be the Self of every other living and nonliving thing in our present experience.

When you are truly Born anew, your life will unfold before you as a supple and shining spring leaf, unfurling toward the light of the sun and allowing it to both deepen the roots of your history and expand the branches of your destiny. It isn’t required of you to Make this happen, rather you allow it to unfold before you once you have made the decision to stop pretending not to Know the Truth of your Divine nature. As Gautama Buddha said, Once you have made the decision to be enlightened, the dye has been cast and it will occur. You’ll strike the mystic chords of memory and become transformed as, over time, you begin to become in consciousness Whom you have always been in essence.
