How To Survive Spiritual Movements
Do You Believe in a God?
Leaders and Followers
Spiritual Movements are countless. Groups of people who believe in the same things, sharing the same insights, from Abrahamism to Hinduism, up to outliers like Masons, Rosicrucians and Illuminati.
They all have a leader. A great infallible example. They all have a caste system. When you're a good boy you might perhaps climb up in this caste.
In fact, it all boils down to the same concept. There is a guy who is going to tell how you must behave and what you must do to become the same like him (or her).
Jesus, Moses, Buddha, Lao Tse, The Paup, Dalai Lama, Yogananda, gurus, saints, monks, yogis and spiritual masters. All more of the same. Probably all wise men. But why should you be like them?
The list of people who are seemingly much, much better and smarter than you is endless. At least that is the idea they will give you. But that is nothing else than an idea. An interpretation. It is not a fact. The fact is that you are already a divine soul.
It is even possible that you are spiritually much further developed than any holy man in history without you knowing it. Have you ever thought about this? No? Perhaps it's time you should.
All religions, all rituals, all oaths are ultimately about conditioning of the human psyche. Are you someone who wants to be conditioned? No? That means that your soul is already reaching up to the Omega Point.
All spiritual movements want the same thing. They want more. They want more members, they want more money, and they want more power. There's nothing divine about that.
Prayer is Everywhere Basically the Same
These holy people have a message how you can become like them. But none of these messages are the same. They are all different. How is that possible? So, it seems there are many ways to become a saint. Isn't it?
They say to follow only one religion, otherwise you get spiritually quartered. But is it? Why would it? All religious movements have the same in common; they want to grow on behalf of other religions. They don't want to share disciples.
There is a God looking down on you, or a guru whose spirit is watching over you. That requires nothing else than dumb faith. There's no way to reason about that, or is it?
How is it even possible to distort the bible into more than thirty different movements? They all think they are right, and that proves they are all wrong.
Man's status in the natural world is determined, therefore, by the quality of his thinking.— Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages
Atheists Who Believe in God
Everyone Wants to Become Happy
People who follow a spiritual movement want to be enlightened, saved, or maybe just happy. Maybe they don't want to be alone with their ideas, or want to find a soulmate who has the same ideas. That is all possible. But the spiritual movement they are in, is about faith. And faith is about brainwashing. Not about the truth.
When you follow a spiritual movement of any kind, you must somehow find a way to adapt yourself to ideas that are not yours. These are ideas of someone else. Switching off your own reasoning is the most important condition to become faithful. Or was this mode never switched on anyway? To think about that, is your way to freedom, happiness, and enlightenment.
When you want to become like the saint you are following, you will have to leave that path behind you one day. You cannot walk someone else’s path. How do you imagine this?
In this case; why wouldn't you follow your own path?
Religions All Over The World
Is Faith For Herd People?
All seemingly different kinds of prayers are basically the same. It is about mass consciousness. It is about mass conditioning. It is for people who are afraid to be alone with their thoughts and ideas.
People who aren't able to follow their own path and own ideas are not directly stupid, but you can't accuse them of intelligence as well.
They are not able to develop their own ideas. They need to share their ideas with others who willingly nod to their ideas. Agreement and understanding is what most people need, and that is understandable. Most people are followers.
But when you're philosophical minded, and convicted yourself on your knees to a movement or a sect, you will suffer.
Living according to your own values is not easy without becoming bitter or heartless like so many self proclaimed atheists. Walking your own path is never easy. It requires courage, reason, and patience to other people and foremost to yourself.
We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.— Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Pledges and Initiations
And then there are pledges and initiations. Rituals that take place in backrooms. Cloaked behind a veil of secrecy. When you are a chosen one to participate in this special event, you must be lucky. But is it? You must pledge to live according to their holy book. You must pledge not to reveal their sacred teachings to infidels. You can only share your ideas with equals who already agreed on the same thing. That means that your borders of consciousness won't really shift.
People who are higher in the caste system will decide when you are ready for the next initiation level. In other words, when you are not promoted, you are not conditioned enough for the next level.
Critical questions like 'why' or 'how' are not appreciated. It is required to do just as you are told, and only then you will grovel a little bit towards enlightenment.
When You Have An Oath Allergy
What to do when you want to become a clone of a saint but you have an oath allergy? That might be a problem. Your Silent Voice says there isn't something right.
You want to get in touch with higher teachings and pick only the best parts of it, and reject the nonsense parts, but that attitude is not appreciated in spiritual communities.
These days it's not necessary anymore to join spiritual communities to get in touch with higher teachings. Everything you need to know is available on the internet. There's no need for oaths anymore when you have an allergy for that.
You can be in any circle of friends you like, whenever this feels right for you.
When You Have a Group Allergy
On top of this you can also dislike group behaviour. You have a kind of group allergy. When people start to do the same things without questioning why they are doing it, there might start to tickle something in your stomach. Or you get the goose bumps on your arms, or you feel your hackles rise up. Or whatever other sign you feel coming up that this isn't the right thing for you.
That is the sign that your Silent Voice is telling you in clearer terms that this is not your path. But you still might have the desire to share your thoughts and spiritual experiences with others.
Spiritual groups or communities are often not the right place for this. These people have often no idea what you are talking about. Only the thoughts of the higher orders, the initiates and the leader are the thoughts that matter and are the right thoughts in their opinion. So better not waste your time and breath on this.
Is There Anything Left?
You might ask yourself - wow, is there anything left? Yes, the truth.
Read the quote of Teilhard de Chardin again, and you might catch a glimpse of the ultimate truth. Most religions on earth have nothing to do with the truth.
The truth is that everything is spirit, and that there is nothing else than just spirit, and that you are one of the highest developed spirits in the whole Universe.
When you joined a spiritual movement of any kind, there was already a hinge present of a higher truth, and there might come a moment that you'll catch the complete Truth in a blink of an eye. After that moment you have outgrown any movement or any religion. Your soul is ready for the quantum jump to the Omega Point.
Are you ready for this jump or will you keep yourself down in ignorance? There are thousands of others who are ready for this. You are not alone.
