The Hidden Awakening Inside Religion
When I booked a room at the Awakening Hotel, I didn’t know that writing something positive about Jesus was a no go. So I had to move out for a bit, again experiencing that there are some things you can’t say and some things you can say. I´m having this virus you see, that I think everyone should be entitled to express themselves freely and not have their thoughts filtered out by people who are so religious about religion that they won’t go there.
Often we can get trapped into mirroring what we fight, by simply taking on the same attitude of the face of the enemy.
I have often spoken about religion in my writing, and unless one is heavily hit by conceptual confusion, everyone would know that I´m not digging religion in boxes, the nasty entrapment in religion, and mostly religion being used as a form of control. Not my thing. This is the last I will say that, since I’m tired of embedding a disclaimer – which is basically an excuse – and I have the belief that if you have to excuse yourself, and your spirituality, or whatever else is in your soul, you’re basically surrendering to the same mechanics we see in the control system, now provided by mainstream awakening.
So fighting for the freedom of thought – not always. And now I have disturbed that segment again and that’s a really good thing. If somebody wants you to give in and comply – it’s not an awakening – it’s a new Matrix, but much more stealthy than the current Matrix of society.
I know my Bro Stu, was really frustrated about this, and to him there were no contradictions in religion and awakening.
I say this with the utmost respect: Maybe he didn’t always explain in depth why there weren’t. So I will try to give my take on it.
I have this approach: The limited mind sees contradictions everywhere – the enlightened mind transcends them and brings together what has been separated.
When talking of religion some really don’t realize the difference between the torturing and repressiveness of the Spanish Inquisition and the holy life of St. Francis. It’s like comparing Mengele to Buddha.
They do not see the frequency of the suppressive interpretation of Islam and the poems of our most admired Rumi (Muslim). Rumi focused his spirituality or religious blueprint on how sensuality, love, was a pathway to ‘God’ and enlightenment, precisely and with surgical precision insisting that ‘God’ is a field of Love and not a bearded judgmental entity in the skies. Are some blind and seduced by the rapture of the mainstream hyped up: I´m so clever – I’m awake and religion is bullshit.
Well, religion is very problematic, but the spiritual dynamic stands.
I would like to focus a bit on the beauty of the spiritual dynamic in what we label as Religion, but maybe should label as pointers to Wholeness, Oneness, Everybody has a right to be here, Love is all, and what have we. Exactly the same words as the awakening uses, but some use them as words, and not an experienced metaphysical reality. Talking the talk – not taking the walk.
Yogananda, whom I think it’s fair and an understatement to describe as an awakened soul, traveled to Europe. He was quite impressed while staying in a monastery in Germany, that the nuns instead of using the door to his room for the night, came right through the walls with his evening tea. As a Yogi, he knew how to transcend the Matrix of the physical world and see solid physical construct as an illusion. Quite like the Matrix Movie.
My point being, that the nuns had transcended the limitations of the physical construct by focusing on the esoteric field of their beloved Jesus. That esoteric field has dynamics and promises, promises given by the lived experiences of nuns before them. And yes, there are power ghoulish nuns denying life and there are awakened nuns focusing in gratitude on the Gift of Life and allowing it to flow in any direction it might take, even though it’s not their thing. Which seems to be my point here, also.
The esoteric field of Jesus holds what a lot of people are striving for: Love, Peace and Forgiveness. So every time we mention that, we plug in knowingly or unknowingly to that field. If Jesus hadn’t been, would we even have that concept of a better world? Interesting question.
There is no big difference between the esoteric of Jesus and the esoteric of Eastern religions and their approach to enlightenment. It’s the same dynamic that goes cross-cultural, and when they do that: They are real. And we can plug into them and they will catapult us into self-development on a high frequency celestial scale, and I for one haven’t got the strength to walk this life and this planet without plugging into what is Celestial to me. We all have different approaches to what is celestial or not and it is very good that we have that, since it gives us the opportunity to either inspire each other or hate each other.
That is where New Age, which advocates freedom of spirituality, runs into a brick wall, since New Age can be very suppressive and life force threatening in its: Do’s and don’ts. New Age needs to lighten up, take on spirituality at its roots and move the heaven on! And New Age people should stop their judgmental gossip of someone being ‘dark or light ‘ – they’re really diminishing themselves.
That is why I often differ between New Age and spirituality because looking under the hood of it, Holy men and women roam the streets of New Age City and dysfunctional power-seeking self-absorbed egos do too.
The Monks of Athos, Greece who are devoted to the Virgin Mary, experience that they start to have a more feminine walk, their voices get higher pitched and they start to develop breasts after practicing their focus on the Field of their beloved Mary.
Buddhism, which is a tapestry of Gods and demons offers enlightenment through purifying the body, mind and soul by setting a compass for: In the end YOU are God, but until you reach that state, we have to deal with the celestial realm of minor Gods in in-depth mediation.
I don’t think I’m overdoing it by stating, since I’m a westerner, that the mystical field of Jesus offers the same pathway.
We’re all more or less trying for: Love, Peace and Forgiveness, and we have that field as the LIGHT in all religions and spiritual practices. So why kick them out?
I don’t feel like repeating myself, but it is both thought provoking and fear-based if the Awakening just won’t go there – since they shut the opportunity of true enlightenment down.
And boy, is there a difference between Awakened and Enlightened.
Why not try for both since it’s a field that got separated and we have to bring it together again, for the right reason. There really are no contradictions, the only thing there is, is: UNITY.
I hear that word a lot as a slogan.
Give me some experienced reality and don’t be a hyped up echo getting high off self-importance with a smoking hot keyboard, and when you´re at it: No, we do not need the 10 Commandments of the Awakening Hype – we need none. Nada. Zip. Zero.
But maybe that’s too much freedom for everyone? OH, my what projection that flies.
I remember very clearly how suppressive religion got very threatened by the evolvement of free thinking spirituality since the early 70’s.
They couldn’t handle spiritual free thinking souls merging the eastern religions/philosophies with the western Jesus. The radio and TV shows I did then were numerous, where some preacher man would love to inquisition me and tell me I was the Devil.
That is how it rolled, and at some point I got tired of it and disengaged. It’s a battle that cannot be won, because the same folks had a very blunt take on religion, only understanding it their way, and preferring to keep up the dark ages status quo instead of opening themselves to other angles of engaging in spirituality.
It was all about them losing power over the souls in the Matrix, and since I never wanted the same power I couldn’t really turn them around, which was not my intention anyway. The intentions were those of a bricklayer: We all try to build a suitable road, first for ourselves, by living it – and not so much speaking it – since everybody has a voice and very few travel the mileage of: Love, Peace and Forgiveness, and to me that’s enough work for a lifetime or two.
We´re all pilgrims in seeing this world as it really is, and if you, dear reader think your journey on that path is done, I have to say to you: It isn’t.
We all have to get very real and not fake a spirituality, not fake where we are right now, and still go into the realms of exploration, doubts, spiritual fears – not mundane fears – and this is exactly where the Awakened get trapped: By projecting mundane fears into the no-go religion hype.
People aren’t that stupid anymore. Pay them some respect – they don’t need self-appointed awakened Spanish Inquisition bans – they need the freedom of body, mind and spirit. Don’t take more away than the Matrix already has. Folks can filter and make up their own solutions.
Which brings me to: Manifesting Holy.
We manifest holy. Like we manifest most.
Let me give an example:
Some would say that Jesus is a hoax and all religion is Matrix distortion.
Some would say that Jesus is real.
You know what: Spiritually it doesn’t matter that much – so maybe don’t get stuck in that. It matters on another level of truth.
For some: Religious truth, personal truth, it matters deep into their souls.
What I am getting at here is that we manifest ´Holy’ and sometimes that field responds and often it does if we plug into that field, whether it be Jesus, Buddhism, Shamanism, Hinduism and so on.
We know now from cutting edge science that we can alter the field of quantum physics with our attention. Let me put that into spiritual context:
Jesus is a field, whether he was or was not.
That field got and still gets created by the prayers, admiration, longing for redemption, forgiveness, love and so on of billions of souls for centuries. They simply built the field and when that field got powerful enough, it gave birth to Jesus with the qualities that were and are the focus of billions of people longing OUT OF THE MATRIX, into a world where good would conquer evil and we all are one under the sun.
And since dark religion hijacked Jesus and made him a focal point for fear, judgment and so on, that field also embeds those suppressing frequencies.
Well, that just goes to show how sick the Control System is, and it’s really disturbing at a high frequency level, when warmongering psychopath politicians just look so holy around Christmas time, pretending to honor The Prince of Peace.
It’s such a disgusting performance – but should that keep you away? It shouldn’t if you have that urge. Don’t identify with the abuse – identify with what’s in your heart.
We manifest what we perceive to be holy by creating it with our intention/attention and now we can understand via science how we do it, if we have that need.
If you and I should come up with an idea of holy being a specific rock on a specific mountain in a specific place, even that rock would start to vibrate, alter in frequency by the amount of focused attention it gets.
If we could get others in on The Holy Rock, it would multiply its frequencies, it would get radiant, and if billions followed it would start to float in the skies.
So it really doesn’t matter if the framework of religion is a man-made construct. And this is where the Matrix really, thank you, didn’t do itself a favor, since it at first didn’t realize that it actually created the Main Frame of spiritual free thinking, well grounded, and actually lived out experienced spirituality of: Love, Peace and Forgiveness.
Because they had their attention on providing the Main Frame, they didn’t realize the that the dynamics in the core would create the needed counterwave to take them down, when we actually experienced the magical metaphysical powers inside the construct.
That is why they mock these qualities. That’s why they created the hippie – thingy in the sixties – to divert it into sex drugs and rock roll.
So every time we use those terms, we´re the target of far away laughter. Only problem is – we don’t give a damn, because our awakening to what this society is really all about and who and what runs it – makes no difference to us anymore – because we walked the path to disengaging mundane fears.
The last thing we need now is a freshly cooked fear of the celestial. I so wish that the awakening mainstream actually would wake up to that fact.
Let’s start bringing together what was ripped apart.
Transcend – Purify – Glorious.
I´ll go meditate on the angels.
