There are of course many valuable teachings and knowledge to be gained from sources such as the bible and quran for example, but it is also a fact each have been manipulated, altered and even rewritten over the centuries by a number of different hands, thus these things can no longer be taken literally, but rather with a grain of salt.
Today we Talk about many things such as Good vs. Evil, God vs. Devil and so on, however in my view it is very alarming how little people understand about each of these things or how they come to be, I see passion from people arguing faith and beliefs they lack an actual understanding of.
In my heart and soul this hurts me, and it makes me feel empathy and pity for Humanity.
It’s by these observations I am witnessing the death throes of a dying Humanity much like fish out of water, as individuals effected by what I refer to as “Artificiality”, that which is anything not occurring naturally, or in layman terms, A lie, and or lies and the belief in such things.
Also, how the ignorance of and denial of these artificialities perpetuate their existence, for at the end of the day We are what “is” and that all things are manifested through us and by us, our belief and hands be it for good or evil, and how Humanity has been made unwilling to acknowledge these responsibilities as their own and not of gods or devil’s.
By my perspective and understanding, Humanity is Free, and our Humanness the freedom, and for gods, kings, power and authority to exist, these freedoms must be restricted, taken away and destroyed, an observable fact throughout known history.
Because I was raised with religions surrounding me, I use the words “God” and “Jesus” very much metaphorically rather than the literal interpretation, a summary of this is “God” is our will and freedom of will, we are able to call upon it at any moment for any given thing, and “Jesus” the metaphoric embodiment of all things Human, Mind, Body and Soul, thus Humanity as the whole.
