BLUSH- This Post- word of the day means a reddening of the face in embarrassment. Frequently, it is refereed to in cosmetics application, as well as in describing early ripening of fruit as a “slight blush” or an “early blush”. Throughout history, religious leaders and televangelists. alike, have been caught in scandalous activity, thereby belying their “holier than thou” attitude. That is no surprise since each of us is selfish and subject to misdeeds. The problem with religion arises when we consider the basic factual acceptance that Jesus instructed His disciples to take no provisions with them as they preach the Gospel, the “good news” that He had died for their salvation. Jesus despised people who profited off God’s Word. Paul preached what Jesus preached. Paul lived a “Jesus life” as closely as any human I’ve ever known of; maybe Mother Theresa. Paul was impulsive and seemed to speak “off the cuff” frequently, possibly causing him a slight blush. I personally am unaware of any “missteps ” by Mother Theresa. However, likely there were some along her way. Paul despised religion just as Jesus did. He did, however, participate in the “breaking of the bread”. That brings me to a subject near and dear to my heart, the Eucharist. The word Eucharist means thanksgiving, and, as best I can determine, the early followers sf Jesus celebrated the “Breaking of the Bread” as a Thanksgiving Memorial for Jesus’ heroic death for their salvation. I am convinced that Jesus was telling his disciples at the “Last Supper” that He was in everything and everything was in Him. He understood that the image of God was imprinted on everything in existence; otherwise it couldn’t be. As we observe the terrible chaos in our world generated by religion an ideologies, it should generate a “red-faced blush” among the perpetrators, the likes of which has never before been seen. But no, they plough ahead shamelessly, striving to gain more influence, money , and power. In the meantime, “Rome Burns While Nero Plays”. Acknowledging the presence of God’s image in each of us has prompted me to call for recognition of a World-Wide Communion Of Spirituality. Unless and until that understanding is universally accepted, peace is not possible. If we believe in the existence of a Supreme Being, which, by the way, we cannot prove, we must accept the fact that every human who has ever lived or ever will live is indelibly imprinted with the image of the same Supreme Being. There can be only “One Supreme Being”. We call It by different names but It is the same Being; Brahma, God , Allah, Yahweh, Buddha, etc. Accepting the concept of a Supreme Being is the “only” justifiable faith we have. Instead of having more and more religions and televangelists, we desperately need a “movement” to promote Universal Communion of Spirituality. That movement would not be based on a concept of any religious practice. It would be based solely on our humbling acceptance of the “presence” of that Divine Spirit within us. The philosophy outlining such consideration is found in detail in my book, Wilderness Cry. I am extremely hopeful that some entity or organization, recognizing the validity of my argument, will step forward and begin the formation of such a “movement”. firstname.lastname@example.org. My book is available Amazon, Kindle ET AL. Please don’t be left “blushing” in ignorance; discover the Truth. All comments welcomed. Remember, religions are divisive; spirituality is unifying.
