Out of the Darkness and into the Light - a religious breakthrough

From out of the Darkness and into the Light

From out of the Darkness

Out of the Darkness into the Light

WE ARE indeed our brothers keepers.

No man is greater than another, for spirits are all equal in the view of the Creator.

From the darkness comes the light.

We must all make a concerted effort to come out of the Darkness of the past and move into the Light of the Present so we can move into the Future in a new light.

The beginning

This is the latest revelation about the sufferings of the lost tribe.

The 'age of reasoning' beset the child in the 7th year with the child instinctively knowing that a lifetime of struggle was at hand.

Being born psychologically different caused insurmountable inner turmoil and an everlasting struggle in a quest to find a peaceful place in a hostile world.

The knowing that it would be a difficult lifetime ahead, filled with fear and apprehension, gave way to writing poetry as the only outlet.

Many of those poems were written using words and terminology that was not yet understood by the child writing them.

At that age there was no way of knowing, or rationalizing, why anyone would be born to carry such a burden into this world.

When the joy of love for another was given at age 20 it was received with great joy and happiness. That joy and happiness would be short lived for just nine years.

In the 1960's a revolution was in progress in this country.

A minority, consisting of the souls of what i consider the lost tribe, (or perhaps 'the new generation' ) was in its beginning phase. We watched in horror at the atrocities being committed against our kinsmen.

The partner and soul mate, of those too short 9 years, departed this earth at age 33, just 4 years the elder to the grown child.

The next 40 years were spent wandering in the desolation of loneliness in a career of comforting the sick and dying, isolated from, and denied participation in, any personal life.

The new revelations

After many years of tirelessly working with the sick and infirm, retirement was welcomed.

This was the time the 'revelations' started coming; vividly and rapidly.

They were enthralling, captivating, and quite disturbing at the same time. When they come they are delivered with the vision of the departed soul of that lost love.

Hundreds of poems were written in an unconscious attempt to dispel the trepidation, causing the hesitancy of engaging in world affairs.

The spirit guide that gave direction was to be the only means of survival throughout those 40 years spent in isolation.

Now the prevalence and urgency of these revelations becomes greater than ever, and a clear direction has been commissioned.

These are the days of the beginning of the enlightenment of mankind and changes must take place if mankind is to survive.

As history shows, changes are made and accepted slowly in humanity for many reasons that bad people learned to exploit, for their own self serving.

This life's commission was to help light a spark that would assist in the enlightenment of the world about the true role of religion in this world.

Religion has become a detriment to universal progress for humanity and a major cause of social unrest that was never meant to be.

Current trends

The trend today:

A new report out from the Pew forums on religion and public life suggests that many Christians, Muslims, and other more radical sects, are at the very least, terribly confused about their 'holy scriptures' they are taught as Gospel.

They have been corrupted, misquoted, and re-written for the sole purpose of confusion, to ensure the continuing psychological control over people for selfish reasons.

The most prevalent {and erroneous} view of today:

While our society continues to evolve, we must remember that: "....Jesus is the same - yesterday, today, and tomorrow (Hebrews 13:8). He does not change. He alone is the way to God the Father, to heaven, to salvation, and nothing we can do will ever change that".

This underlying belief is tantamount to current social unrest, instability, and not relevant, when viewed as a reason to continue supernatural practices in a modern civilized world where slavery and oppression [both physical and emotional], are no longer productive, or acceptable, and yet continue to survive unfettered.

The persistent lies, and misgivings, of the past must not dictate the present, or the future.

If 'religion' itself is to be part of our society, we must change it from being a malignancy that destroys, divides, and polarizes our society, to be that of a power that unites ALL people in their sense of spirituality with the same goals for the survival of humanity.

It must be evolved and re-interpreted to embrace a broader perspective.

Individual religions teach that their respective "savior" or "messiah" is the only representative of the Creator.

This simply cannot be truth, unless it is accepted that there are multiple "creators", and if that be true, then there are multiple "heavenly" mansions for individual believers to dwell in after death.

['Spirit guide' assures that this is not the case.]

That multiplicity belief would also be a travesty that would be divisive and polarizing.

Ergo, the only solution is to re-interpret all those 'holy scriptures' to mandate that their own particular messiah is simply an individual agent of the Universal Creator, not the single path to salvation for all humans alike. Thereby dispelling the notion that any human being can possibly be the Creator itself incarnate. And it is so, as we are all part of the whole 'being' of the Universal Oneness.

The religious coming of age

If we view the world as a singular corporal entity then we must view religion, in its total, as an integral part of that entity.

Religion itself is often perceived (by myself, as well as many others) as a malignancy that should be excised from the 'global' body as a whole.

But if that malignancy cannot be excised, then we must re-evaluate its purpose and modify ourselves to be able to accept and live with it (as one would do with a birth defect that cannot be corrected).

Using religion as a crutch to not take any personal responsibility in one's life is also not what it was meant to be.

Spirituality will always be part of the human experience and will one day become a logical part of humanity (in years to come); but for now the adjustment toward an evolutionary universal spirituality is just being introduced and will take generations for most people to comprehend and accept this phenomenon as part of the Creator's great plan.

Quotes by famous people

Some interesting comments on the subject by famous people:

  • John Lennon: " I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest said was right - It's just that the translations have gone wrong".
  • Mahatma Gandhi: "All paths leading to God are equally good".
  • Oprah Winfrey: "One of the biggest mistakes humans make is to believe there is only one way. Actually, there are many diverse paths leading to what you call God".
  • Homer Simpson: " I'm gonna die! Jesus, Allah, Buddha - I love you all".

There is one quote in particular that's generally attributed to a little known Scottish historian, Sir Alexander Frasier and it seems to both make good sense and profess the end of the American Republic.

He talks about the process by which democracies fall as a result of "individual voter selfishness".
He supposedly further said:

"The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been two hundred years. These nations have progressed through this sequence:

  • from bondage to spiritual faith,
  • from spiritual faith to great courage;
  • from great courage to liberty,
  • from liberty to apathy;
  • from apathy to dependence;
  • from dependency back to bondage."

Others deny that Tyler said these words at all. They can be traced back to right wing American businessmen in the early decades of the twentieth century.

And why would right wing businessmen say such things? Because the thing that corrupts democracies is not the voters demanding free stuff {according to certain pessimistic politicians} but instead, it is businessmen buying off politicians.

It is not the powerless that corrupt democracies and religions, it is the powerful who corrupt them for self serving purposes making money the root of all evils after all.

Along with that comes the fact that those in charge, who control the purse strings, and have power over people, also exploit religions to ensure that the people remain in a state of unrest, filled with guilt and fear that prevents any progression away from those "wrathful" Gods that would send everyone to hell if they try to resist the "established" rules of engagement.

It is the most basic premise of maintaining control over the population even though it is without any rational merit.

The Global coming of age

There are thousands who quote from their holy scriptures to try and prove that their individual religions are the only route to heaven, and everyone else will be doomed to suffer in hell for eternity.

They are factually quoting literally from their holy books, but what they quote are not what the original writings intended to impart.

These exclusive claims supposedly made by Jesus are frowned upon in a pluralistic society such as ours and all other religions are guilty of the same fallacious rhetoric.

These exclusive claims are made all the time.

The question is which claim has the right to be exclusive? The answer is: None of them.

All religions are guilty of putting "human traits" on a Godly concept.

All our 'messiahs' are simply conduits to the Creator, with none being exclusively representative of such.

We can no longer believe in the narrowness of any written holy book, when the words are simply the interpretations of the man who penned the words. And those words that were penned were translated by other humans who put their own slant on what was written in the first place, in order to further their own personal agendas.

As well versed as the modern day theological "interpreters" are, they too are simply putting their own interpretations on those original thoughts and words.

The lesson being that all "messiahs" in every religion are on an equal par, when they represent the Creator, if there is only one Creator.

Or, if not, then we must acknowledge the concept of multiple 'creators' because all religions will not send their 'truly good brethren' to hell just because they had the misfortune to be born into an alternative religion.

We MUST first ascertain that God is NOT a religion. We need to shift our focus on a more universal view that continues to argue this narrow mindedness that modern day religions insist on for their own selfish reasons that all embrace the concept of 'control' over their brethren.

We must also embrace the fact that our lives are not a parable. We must simply live our lives in harmony, love, judging no one, enjoy the beauty around us and learn new things - not dwell in the past and live in fear.

The Creator is not to be feared, but respected as superior. We must learn to leave the past where it belongs - in the past. To let ago go.

Those religions that cannot, will not, or fear to, accept a broader view of the literal translations of what once was fruitful for the times, will, ( and must), all fall along the wayside.

  • Stubbornness is akin to denial.
  • Fear of change serves no purpose.
  • Judging others is a useless human fault that also has not purpose.
  • The original 10 commandments are great basic rules for a society to live by with some modifications afforded to them.

For example:

  • it is not the sexual act itself, but the betrayal of promises made to your chosen partner that makes adultery unacceptable.
  • Providing financial security for your family is commendable, but that commend-ability ceases at the point of hoarding to excess and harming others in the process.
  • Keeping holy the sabbath day must be replaced with continual awareness of the spirituality of each and every soul that resides on this planet alongside of us.
  • No one is greater than another in the eyes of the spiritual view.
  • Acute awareness and appreciation of one another, as equal, is a greater virtue than praying for our own deliverance, or for other souls to be converted to our way of thinking.
  • The further fallacies that some men preoccupy themselves with, is their belief that there is a universal war in continuous progress somewhere in the universe, between good and evil.

Spirit guide dispels this idea and suggests that perhaps those who believe this theory are actually having that battle within themselves; not knowing and accepting, or fearing, who they were born to be.

I agree with a lot of your comments about hate and judgement of others who have a different belief system, but i do believe in God/ Higher power/ I am sorry for your loss as a young man, but you have spent your life helping others in the field of nursing, that's something to be proud of. It is never too late to find love again. I wish you much joy and happiness in the future...

Thanks for your kind comments. And yes, i, too, believe in a higher power, but my version of that higher power does not entail worshiping a human being as God.

This practice of worshiping a human being as God is as close to blasphemy as we can get; and yet people are blinded by their religious brainwashing into believing that there is only one path to salvation.

All those passages that people quote to "prove" J.C. is the only path are quite vague and their translated versions were narrowed for the promotion of this "new" religion that the Roman Government created back in 330 ad.

These "quotes" state clearly that there is only one way to salvation - and that is through the acknowledgment of God as the Creator, and J.C. was simply one of many conduits to God. It was not meant to say that J.C. was God himself, but rather to refute and discourage people from worshiping their false gods as they did back in those days. (Their golden cows, and their lust for money, etc...).

Jesus also said that one does not need a "religion" to enter the kingdom of heaven. He was a Gnostic and believed that the best way to commune with the spiritual life was directly, not through a mouth piece.

After the Roman Government created the Roman Catholic Church, they declared the religion of Jesus to be illegal, and it was banned by the Government, AND the Roman Catholic Church.

So much for following in the footsteps of this new messiah.

This is much like the Catholics' practice of eating meat on Fridays being a sin against God. This was a church/government declaration to boost the fishing industry - no other reason. So all those years those people who sinned against god for eating meat on fridays are all burning in hell, and all those who eat meat on fridays now, after the church declared it no longer a sin, are in heaven? What a crock of crap.

Unfortunately these passages have been corrupted over the years for purely selfish reasons and still are being used today to keep people under their thumbs, based on fear, and yes, to take their money as well.

This is why i advocate broadening the translated versions of ALL "holy books" to view all "messiahs" and "saviors" as equals, as they all simply speak for the Creator as humans, the same as do I, and others who see the corruption of religions as the major cause for global social unrest, disharmony, hatred, fear, wars, etc...

This is a very informative and realistic hub article. Bravo! and applause (clapping!!) to such an enlightened and evolved mind/soul. Many cultures, that I title as "The Old Ones" have this same philosophy, to summarize a quote from my heritage: Tomas Yellowtail, Crow Sundance Chief, said: All the different ways back to GOD were given by GOD. That a wagon wheel is round like the earth and that all the religions are like the spoke of this wagon wheel and the hub is GOD. All the people of the world stand on the rim and must choose a spoke to follow to the center hub (GOD). It is a very long quote but the point is that there is "not one way" to GOD and that no one should judge another for their choice on how they are one with GOD/Great Spirit. I agree with this articles point of view, and especially the parts discussed about what structured religions, like the Catholic Church has done to literally keep people from a "real" union with GOD. Thank you again for sharing such an "in-sight"! ~ Jen

Yes I do agree with your views and I have also had a view from the other side. Though most people who have died or had a NDE state about the same things, mine was different from one aspect...I did NOT die.

Religion is NOT what it was before Certain government enities came and manipulated the books, letters and stories they found to put in one book to rule over the people of their choosing. As I read the Bible and do my research about the times, the people, they situations people that wrote were in and the leaders of whom branded their own sense of that Bible...I am beginning to see that the books were somewhat made up just so they could tell others if they don't do what they are told they will go to hell. It is a strange feeeling seeing all that. It was someone who told me that the Bible can Interpret Itself that got me o my voyage. I did write a hub in that name. It appears that it can interpret itself because it seems to me that they intentionally developed the Bible so that it would appear to do that. There are some parts that don't make any sense and I think that is where they messed up in connecting the dots.

They can't possibly say that those who don't even know about JC or have never even heard of Rome for that matter are going to hell because they do not believe. That is preposterous to say the least.

Thanks for your kind comments and i especially liked the metaphor with the wagon wheel.

I just read this beautiful hub on life being likened to a stage, on which we all play our parts as actors. But the best thought is that we are all part of something greater, a universal oneness, and that "everyone of us are embodiments of divinity in reality".

That is also in the book Corinthians where one part cannot exist without the other and all parts are in the same body.

I read the bible through several times as a teenager, and found it rather confusing at times, intelligent (metaphorically) at times, and downright silly in other parts (unrealistic).

When i write stuff that i don't really know where my thoughts originated from, perhaps it is a throwback from memories of reading these 'parables', 'metaphors' and fairytale stores as a child.

To refresh your memory a tade bit:

1 Corinthians 12

Young's Literal Translation (YLT)

12 And concerning the spiritual things, brethren, I do not wish you to be ignorant;

2 ye have known that ye were nations, unto the dumb idols -- as ye were led -- being carried away;

3 wherefore, I give you to understand that no one, in the Spirit of God speaking, saith Jesus [is] anathema, and no one is able to say Jesus [is] Lord, except in the Holy Spirit.

4 And there are diversities of gifts, and the same Spirit;

5 and there are diversities of ministrations, and the same Lord;

6 and there are diversities of workings, and it is the same God -- who is working the all in all.

7 And to each hath been given the manifestation of the Spirit for profit;

8 for to one through the Spirit hath been given a word of wisdom, and to another a word of knowledge, according to the same Spirit;

9 and to another faith in the same Spirit, and to another gifts of healings in the same Spirit;

10 and to another in-workings of mighty deeds; and to another prophecy; and to another discernings of spirits; and to another [divers] kinds of tongues; and to another interpretation of tongues:

11 and all these doth work the one and the same Spirit, dividing to each severally as he intendeth.

12 For, even as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of the one body, being many, are one body, so also [is] the Christ,

13 for also in one Spirit we all to one body were baptized, whether Jews or Greeks, whether servants or freemen, and all into one Spirit were made to drink,

14 for also the body is not one member, but many;

15 if the foot may say, `Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body;' it is not, because of this, not of the body;

16 and if the ear may say, `Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body;' it is not, because of this, not of the body?

17 If the whole body [were] an eye, where the hearing? if the whole hearing, where the smelling?

18 and now, God did set the members each one of them in the body, according as He willed,

19 and if all were one member, where the body?

20 and now, indeed, [are] many members, and one body;

21 and an eye is not able to say to the hand, `I have no need of thee;' nor again the head to the feet, `I have no need of you.'

22 But much more the members of the body which seem to be more infirm are necessary,

23 and those that we think to be less honourable of the body, around these we put more abundant honour, and our unseemly things have seemliness more abundant,

24 and our seemly things have no need; but God did temper the body together, to the lacking part having given more abundant honour,

25 that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same anxiety for one another,

26 and whether one member doth suffer, suffer with [it] do all the members, or one member is glorified, rejoice with [it] do all the members;

27 and ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.

28 And some, indeed, did God set in the assembly, first apostles, secondly prophets, thirdly teachers, afterwards powers, afterwards gifts of healings, helpings, governings, divers kinds of tongues;

29 [are] all apostles? [are] all prophets? [are] all teachers? [are] all powers?

30 have all gifts of healings? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?

31 and desire earnestly the better gifts; and yet a far excelling way do I shew to you:

Well, i must say, that certainly did refresh my memory without a doubt. LOL.

They were certainly verbose back in those days weren't they? This whole thing could have been summed up in one sentence that i quoted above: "Everyone of us are embodiments of divinity in reality". Apparently the Swami was smarter than the writer of the contents of the bible. ??

What Rome wants, Rome Gets and they are the most manipulative people in the world back then. I can see that all this religiousness is still about Rome conquering the world and wanting all of it. It seems the the Inquisition still lives in a sense. No people are not killed but they are still hushed and called names and told they are liars if they don't do as they say. I watched Gallileo and it was an eye opener for sure and that is how I got the notion that the Inquisition is still alive and well. Just listen and read all the people who tell you that they read the bible yet when one brings up a scripture they will tell you that you lie and that you took it out of context and do all kinds of aerobatics to prove their point...and they don't even read it themselves. That is the funny part. Someone is telling them these things. Rome still has the rule and is still converting people to a book that was written way before they were even born--the OT that is. It was stolen.

You speak the truth. What most people still do not know is that the vatican houses one of the world's greatest treasures in its cellars. When the Government's Roman Church was looting and pillaging all in the name of their God, they stole treasures from every country that they destroyed and stored it in their basement. They have the largest, most expensive museum of antiquities in the world, worth trillions++ of dollars. If they truly cared about this world's poverty, and hungry children they would use some of that vast wealth of help the people in need. Such hypocrites.

Instead they beg people for money to fill their coffers even more, and try to influence governments to pass laws that hurt people more than help. And they don't pay one cent in taxes. Such hypocrites.

I find it most disconcerting that governments around the world still kowtow to them as if they had some say in what happens in the afterlife.

Those who put the stories in the bible stole those stories, called them their own and then told those that they had stolen from that they are the heretics. Genesis was from millenium before they put them together. Revelations was about the eruption of Vesusvius and not the end of our world. It was the end of their world. Religion does twist things to how they want it to be and not what it truly was. Jesus has many works and words that were omitted from the Bible and his works are called heresy and Paul's was put in their place. Hmmm Paul was a Roman Soldier. It goes on and on.

It was from the Sumerian texts. The stories are all the same in other texts as well. Humans made God human. It is not human nor does it have emotions or fear or love, it is energy.

In one of my comments i referred to God as it, saying that spirits have no body so they cannot be categorized as male of female. I was chastised by a devout 'Christian' who promptly told me that any fool knows God is male. LOL

It is sad how little people know about the origins of their religions and their holy books. This is one of the downsides of brainwashing, it eliminates the use of logic, common sense, and "free thinking" which is a sin by most christian standards.

Yes. I read that Bible and I do research about the Bible and I also go with the Nazarene Way, which is how Jesus was brought up and for that I was called Satan...no kidding. I constantly ask them what does God and Satan look like and I still have not gotten an answer. There are books on top of books that were not included in the Bible and they are all about Jesus, yet they refuse to acknowledge them. That is what the clergy are supposed to do. It states it in their doctrine that they are to keep all clergy and parishioners in the dark at all costs. Pretty strong words.
