It’s a funny thing. Sometimes. Human nature. Create something really fun and perhaps even exclusive and try to keep people out. People will find a way in.
My spirituality is my own. I do not feel the need to bring anyone to “my side”. If anything I almost prefer to not discuss it. Because explaining existential things beyond the grasp of words alone is hard enough, let alone having to feel the need to justify these beliefs. And I feel so strongly about them that even having to explain them seems almost like a mockery of it. Because to me, in my heart, it needs no explanation. It just is.
So when people come to me all “this is the only way to heaven”, “this is the only way to salvation”, “this is the ONE right way”……I can not run fast enough, away. Let alone when people use Jesus’ name for this. Then it feels almost like a control issue. Like if you really believe he is so great and this is so wonderful why do you have to sell it so hard?
I know Jesus consciousness is a real thing. The spirit of his words is worthy of such love and devotion but LEAD BY EXAMPLE people. Please!! Isn’t that the real point of his whole teachings. Just do it! Just be it!
Because truly, if your club is so cool, if it is so revolutionary, if people really are being saved and if this really is life changing, won’t they come to you? Won’t they come to this belief of their own volition? What do I care really? Go save whoever you want. But I really wish people would stop peddling it to me.
Let alone a religion led by men, for men, of men. Get the fuck away from me with that shit. It’s part of why I am hesitant even about this whole Daime religion. It’s run by men exclusively. It’s run in Christ consciousness based on Catholicism basically. Which ok fine. I don’t discredit it in theory. I’ll give it a chance I guess. It’s all I can do. Go in with an open mind.
But I’m not singing the “our father” because there is no mystical man in the sky and the kindgom is already here, in our hearts and I won’t pander to male ego any further. Sorry. Not gonna do it. Just not gonna do it. 🙄
