UNDERSTANDING- Oh, what a beautiful word. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if everyone in the world could have the same understanding—there would be no disagreements, no hostility—only loving acceptance of each other—there would be peace. We can, but will we?
Anyone who follows my writings and comprehends them knows that common understanding is my goal. Some of you may feel threatened by my philosophy. Others may be angered and others may be bewildered. There are many, however, who seem to understand and are grateful for my contribution to their understanding.
Many of you are aware that I have presented my foolproof pathway to understanding in my two books, Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality. Those two books, which are echoed in my frequent blog posts, lay out an irrefutable understanding of God, his universe, and our relationship with both.
By defining the essence of God as a perfect rational being, I am able to show that the ‘miniscule’ image of God as portrayed in the Old Testament and perpetuated by all three Abrahamic religions has been and still is the single-most major deterrent to peace that the world has ever known. Each group, in turn, has envisioned a certain ill-defined image of that being and ,simultaneously, proclaimed it with absolute certainty to be the only correct one. That, of course, has established immediate hostility.
In similar fashion, each group has developed a system of appeasement of that vengeful God—those systems are known as religion. As of 2014 there were 33,000 such so-called Christian religions in the world. I say so-called because each claims Jesus as its head, but each, simultaneously, professes a different Jesus, Their claims, of course, are based on the Bible, a book which has been altered thousands of times to suit each group’s imagination.
Now, having that awareness has compelled me to seek a solution to the problem. Since we recognize religion, without question, to be the cause of the hostilities, what is the solution. Plain and simple, we must come to a ‘common understanding’. And how may we do that? The very first step is to have a distinctive, irrefutable definition of the essence of our God, so that everyone starts on the ‘same page’.
I have given that essential definition, and from it flows the automatic answers to all our dilemmas, mysteries, and quandaries. Because that definition refutes literally every tenet of every religion, I may be perceived as hostile to religion. I am not hostile—I am realistic and I am asking you to be realistic.
I’m no dummy—as Willy Nelson would say, ‘I wasn’t born no yesterday’. I am fully aware that almost all of us were inculcated in the tenets of a specific religion, and likely, that inculcation was explicit and exclusive of all others—I know mine was. So if you, as an individual, are willing to drop your shoulders, calm your bristles, and join your neighbors in a loving common understanding, then we can eventually have peace. It won’t come from the ‘top down’—no movement ever does. It must start with you and you and you and you……….
When enough ‘yous’ join together, the ‘brass’ will take note—oh, they will try desperately hard to hold on—eventually they will relinquish and accommodate— what a glorious day!!!
Understand, I am not in any way demeaning you or your religion. I am simply pointing out the misguided way of all religion, and pleading for your gracious acceptance and understanding of a better way.
I encourage you to “put my philosophy to the test’—study hard and offer me a scientific and philosophically solid refutation. If you can, I’ll graciously listen—if you can’t, join me in a communion of understanding. Very simply put, we and everythin in existence are of ‘one commom substance (energy)’ in that Perfect Ratioinal Being we call God. All is of One Spirit. That is why I make persistent calls for the recognition and acceptance of the World-wide Communion of Spirituality. Pray thay we may have that ‘Common Understnding’.
