I have been spending a lot of time reading various spiritual books which have been greatly inspiring, but after some considered objective analysis the question remains: what if you don’t believe in something?
Why do we need to believe in anything?
Belief requires no proof. It only requires blind faith.
Religions are set in stone when followers begin to lay down rules and proscribe attitudes, ways of thinking, believing, behaving, eating, dressing, assigned gender roles , where to live, what to believe…
People are happy to confine themselves within these parameters for the sake of securing an afterlife which will bring untold joy and freedom.
We only achieve freedom when we walk our own path, forged through our own spiritual practices such as meditation, contemplation or prayer. Finding our own way is essential in order to enter the Aquarian Age, the Age of Finding our Individual Truth and Mastery. The Piscean Age was characterized by patriarchal spiritual leadership, men essentially taking on the role of a “shepherd tending his flock.”
The Aquarian Age is a time of nonconformity, finding your own beliefs. How does one achieve that? Through a daily spiritual practice that will guide you into finding what it is you seek.
Meditation can connect you with your Core Being, your true identity – and the more you work on it the more you begin to realize certain truths. Those Truths may be Universal, or they may be intensely personal ones borne out of where your consciousness lies, how expanded it is and how much you want to transcend the maya or illusion of our existence.
Throughout the millenia there have been shamans and priests who have accessed realms beyond the third dimension either through dedicated practice or psychotropic drugs. They all tell a similar story: our lives are an illusion that we collectively support in order to evolve into self-realization. The development of compassion, love and kindness is the foundation of these teachings. Be of service to others.
Stop believing the unfounded “truths”: free yourself of all the limitations your parents, religion and teachers have placed upon you.
We are here for such a pinprick in infinity.
Love is the gateway to immortality.
