Truly Religious

I guess the title is a facade to secretly pull you in like a vortex into some void you were probably not prepared for. But the thought that has manifested lately has been nothing more than a gently note across a beautiful afternoon breeze asserting that the Old context of what it means to be religious might be coming to an end, or rather, the insight that the old religious never even really existed to begin with, that it was mistaken identity (just like everything else, funny how that works doesn’t it?)

This old religious movement (Christianity, Muhammaden, Islam, Judaism, etc. etc.) is not wrong by any means, it has brought a lot of ignorance to light. To say that it is wrong is not quite right as Life has everything in it’s grasp, it does not even leave out the possibility that there may or may not be something there, it’s rather if you’re receptive to seeing it with the mind which is closest to who you actually are. I cannot argue about syntax anymore, as arguing is rubbish, its fighting for something not worth fighting for, over a concept or a belief that is no more real then the solidity of your hand (it seems real doesn’t it? ;)) Call me a mad man and it wouldn’t matter to me.

Here is where religiousness becomes real, in fact, it was never unreal to begin with or never separated from truth, they are the same undivided thing. The two words are no more than one word in Reality.

Seeing the Real, and being truly religious is seeing that you have never been separated or divided, the appearance of un-division has brought about religions. Religions in which have aided people in different cultures. The more and more human beings begin to see that they aren’t race despite what they see, speak, hear, act, etc. but rather they are what they are. The very undefined human being at its very core is all the same non-seperated thing, whatever this thing is, has always been in existence, so much so that it is non-existence in the same token. Even these two terms are un-divided, and it’s not that we are linked as human beings, this implies division. How can you be linked when you were never separated.

If you are not separated then what becomes of the religions that separate? Will they disappear? I suspect that this will slowly happen the more people begin to see what they truly are, when this will happen, who knows, and who cares, this gets away from what you are right now. If you know what you are right now, then that question doesn’t even arise because it no longer matters. You are well established in who you are.

I guess the scary part for most human beings is letting go of those crutches and realizing that their feet have been fully functional this whole time, go ahead and try it, I double dog dare you! ❀

    Good joke stolen (and improved, I hope) from Tony Parsons:

    Jesus came back from the desert, where he had his awakening. God called a meeting with Satan and said, “Hah! They’ll all know the truth now. You’ll be powerless. What are you going to do about it?”

    “Well,” said Satan thoughtfully, “I guess I’ll help them organise it.”

    God sighed resignedly.

  2. Beautiful joke, definitely goes and pertains haha. I love it Suzanne (the sound of one hand ironing) πŸ˜‰ ❀

    Well said, Nick.

    Not the easiest thing to do, using terms suited to indicate duality and separation to describe unity in all things. Finding those terms that don’t yet exist to describe existence.

    I do have one problem, though, and that is that i only have one dog…

    Peace, my friend!

  4. haha, well then if that is seen as the problem, you can always buy another or the opposite, get rid of the dog and then you no longer have the problem of having only one dog. πŸ˜‰

    Thanks Pete as always for coming to visit! πŸ™‚

    Back in the saddle again, eh Nick? Oh religion… how I love to hate it. It’s all so damned funny, isn’t it?

    Ah salami lick ’em.

  6. Very funny haha, it’s so interesting how much something that wants to bring people together has done the opposite. It mystifies me to think if they all disappeared, what might happen, not that “The Big Guy” would be gone if that’s what you want to call it, because regardless of whether organized religions were there or not, the Truth is still the Truth.

    Silly Silly Contexts and sides to argue (a thousand and one in fact!) Just enough to entertain ourselves yeah? πŸ˜›

    Yeah well I’m trying to at least post a little bit, because I’m sure there are a couple of readers that enjoy it haha, regardless of me knowing that whatever I have to say is meaningless, that the experience is what needs to be seen, not just the words that hold no weight, naw mean?! =]

    Thanks for stopping by Mike, always appreciate it!

    Hi Nick,

    Let’s suppose that we had many lives and that we had adhered to all of those religions, what would it change now in this life? We live, we die, with or without religion, only to find out that it was what was in our heart that matted.

    Why don’t you start a brand new religion? I’ll follow you! πŸ™‚

    PS: I’m pretty sure that my two cats would out-run your two dogs. Ah, ah!

    Lots of Love you way, Cathy

  8. Hey Cathy,

    Thanks for the comment, it’s always a pleasure to see what you have to say about things, bringing in very pleasant thoughts to think on. Given we had other lives or to say that there was more than one live other than our natural life that is timeless, it wouldn’t make a lick of difference. Life and Death only play as illusions to the body, what we actually are transcends that of both, as what we are is beyond body to begin with.

    With or without religion we are who we are, the religion has nothing to do with our nature, they are only but a thing which we get caught up in, an idea or illusion just like we are caught up in the thought of being the body or the human being, when to see that this thought is the only thing standing in our way or seeing clearsightedly. It’s not bad however to be caught up, we all inevitably will see it, you can’t escape who you are. See where the heart rises and see where the true “I” is not the thought and you will shine light on darkness. πŸ™‚

    Haha, another religion, there is alot more to enjoy then to just make up fantasy religions, although the thought flatters the ego very much hehe. πŸ˜‰ Truth is, is that to be religious is to stand on your own two feet without support of the crutches (religions just in general) and the more aware of what you are the more you’ll discover that your legs have always been strong enough. Your on the right path to question every thought to stay centered in you and not external ideas of what you are. You are beyond a mere thought, yet all thoughts are encompassed in you. Stay in the silence as much as possible and if there is some disorder, then ride with it, accept it for the time, let it pass and then gently back into the silence.

    Always remember to not believe in something but to investigate every thought (including mine, everyone elses, and even your own) until it rings true throughout your being! πŸ™‚ ❀

    PS: your two cats and petes two dogs are my two cats and my two dogs, so it's a win for all. πŸ˜‰

    Love and Blessings to you!

    -Nick
