All The World is a Stage.

We can imagine everything but truth, for the truth is too obvious to be it, and too simple to accept. With the curtain drawn we have now built a story to validate humanity as something less spectacular than the sum of its parts—which is ridiculous considering.

Occasionally one gets a peek behind the curtain. When that takes place a couple of things can happen if you are not prepared—they may walk off the set, self destruct, or go off the chain. This is why no master will ever teach you without a discipline to go along with it.

Another thing that often happens is a rise of self importance; I am god—The Jehovah Effect© I and the father are one—now you must listen to what I say and do what I tell you to do. What I know is the way, the truth, and you have to go through me (to get back to where you have no choice but to be) History is scattered with these types. Jesus at least spoke in parables to not give away the game. It is essential to the longevity of it all, that mankind doesn’t cut the act short by knowing the secret while we’re here—that there is no secret. This is the usefulness of religion—never answering the question, and unable to—constantly searching beyond the simplicity of it all.

Part of the problem is Christianity’s beginnings, where Christ sought out his disciples. Disciples who were not seeking enlightenment nor prepared for the experience (jesus couldn’t wait to share his newfound knowledge) They never did understand him while he was alive, then took it upon themselves to be zealots when he was dead. If you want to wake up then do so, find it, see it, but be prepared; all there is left to do from then on is watch and smile at the game.

Knowledge is simply the absence of delusion—The you who is not the one you see in the mirror, but the you that defines who you really are beyond that (personality, consciousness) is not the ego you’ve been told. Perceiving the essence of yourself in our natural existence is similar to scale of a fish achieving awareness of itself, that could never comprehend the head of the fish—so it is with the universe. We are merely a function, the eyes and ears and perceptions, a nerve ending on the whole living organism.

Our nature, whether here or there has not changed but the slightest. We seek to be entertained, to be engaged in emotions, to laugh, to cry, to feel fear or to feel exhilarated by the fantasy. To seek out endless ways to relieve the boredom and stay busy even after an idle day or two.

We are merely participants in a play, breaking away from the doldrums of everyday immortality to see the show (or be in the show) while others act out the mystery and sometimes misery for a role in the drama. Either way, life here means nothing but a respite from the mundane existence of infinite living. Simply not knowing the outcome is the most masterful, simple game in the universe. And like a fish jumping out of the water, for a moment, getting a brilliant glimpse backstage that there is no more to life than the existence we are living.

Monotheism is especially proud of its level of tail-chasing distractions—a necessary player to reduce enlightenment and retain players in the game.

Shouldn’t Truth Unite?

Wouldn’t all universal truths self evident?

Truth always divides due to the existence of lies. I fear and reverence God. I also love Him more than life itself. If you sought Jesus Christ through His Word and prayer with as much fervor as you use to argue and debate His non-existence then you would see the reality that He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life“—tjcole

If truth divides and not beliefs, why are Muslims fighting Buddhist and Christians fighting Christians, all jockeying for the perfect wording to prove their truth—and killing for it too? Real truth is easily identified because it is universal (we find these truths to be self evident) They don’t require dogmas.
Like, if all men are created equal, that is final. If they are endowed with inalienable rights, that is final. Nothing of a religious doctrine should suppress one group over their genetics. Christianity is a walking contradiction when it comes to human issues.

Picking real cherries does not make me a Christian…

Dismissed With Prejudice—The Lawyers of Religion

Dismissed with prejudice is a legal term used in court cases, meaning that it’s dismissed permanently. The case case is over and done with, once and for all, and can’t be brought back to court. A case dismissed without prejudice means the opposite. It is not dismissed forever, and can be re-examined when new evidence comes to light, a missed legality was acknowledged, or you just decide a new approach.

An acquaintance of mine took the school district to court over their special needs child. They basically bet the farm on winning this case, and after four years of lawyer fees and court costs, the district prevailed. They had to liquidate their home and assets to pay attorneys, and are now renting an old double wide trailer. Case dismissed with prejudice! Ouch! I feel their pain, but they’re a litigious minded couple looking for a payout—it backfired. They also have small children at home. Betting everything on the opinions of a lawyer always goes one way. The lawyer gets paid! Which bring us to religion…

Before betting your life in the words of a paid minister, it might be a good idea to think for yourself. Experts in gods-law, but right or wrong, he’s getting your money based in a phony presumption of misdeeds and guilt—your guilt, instilled by ‘men of words’ and followers based on assumption.

Most of us that have deconverted have dismissed the Bible and the churches without prejudice. It could be a cool story if it were true, and we have so many years sunk into it, wouldn’t it be nice if it came through for us? Some real evidence to present? I would easily take a new look at everything—if but one part were true?

Betting the farm on the words of another—mere belief, that’s all it is, a life to lay in waste on the word of another. Why would you discard your own mind and potential on the word of a paid lawman, or one of his lackeys, while you actually have the power and ability to chart a much more interesting—yours!
