THESE. What? “I’ve gone this far” you say. That’s nice. But in
this question and answer ‘clarification’ you may be offended.
No? Not you? Are you sure? You may find some of your grounding,
security beliefs threatened.
Considering yourself a spiritual entity who can grow by using
your ability to love should have quite an impact on you. This is
especially true if you understand loving to be a ‘leaving of
self for other’ and a very personal commitment. For most
traditional views depend on a belief in revealed ‘truths’. These
tell you what you ‘must do’ to be accepted into ‘heaven’. They
are often superficial and contrived out of fear and expediency.
“Tell the rabble what to do and they will be easier to manage.
After all, we are telling them what ‘god’ wants.” How many
justifications for ‘laws’ have been conjured up over the
centuries? Anyway … you have a clear choice to make: You can go
on accepting some or all of what you have been taught. THIS IS
FINE!! … as long as you are a caring human being … renewing your
efforts to love more and more each day.
Or you can start viewing yourself as a spiritual entity with
abilities that make you unique, that help you grow. You can
depend on YOUR resources for realizing your potential. For they
remain constant despite your credos, your supplications and your
pious murmurings and actions.
So … are you up for some blunt ponderings?? … considerations of
sacrosanct ideas?? Good for you. Hopefully you can eliminate
stultifying fears and live your life more sensibly.
