The Truth About Me

The truth about me is that I do not know anything important.

I am an intelligent person. I know a lot of things about our physical reality. I can hold an intelligent conversation with just about anyone, regarding just about anything.

All of that means nothing when it comes to our spiritual reality. I do not know anything, for certain, about that. My guess is that is the way it is supposed to be — a never-ending journey tailor-made for each of us to help us find our way to the light.

The Truth In The Place It Matters Most

It is hard to admit that — especially in this venue. Here I am trying to build a site that encourages people to seek the truth and ask God into their lives, and stating that I do not know anything at the same time. I think it is important though and here is the reason why:

Anyone who tells you that they KNOW the answer is lying to themselves, and, by extension, lying to you. Our spiritual journey is intensely personal while we are still ruled by ego. Some things need to be fixed, and others that need to be changed. We can (and will be) helped along the way, but the work to be done is all ours — individual, intimate, and personal. Once the ego is no longer in control there is no-one in our physical reality that can be of any assistance — especially those who are still controlled by the ego.

Your Faith, Your Path — YOU

The truth is that — no matter what I or anyone else says — you have to find ways to develop your faith. Your faith will lead you to God, and God will lead the way. Everything else you encounter — books, religions, gurus, priests, rituals, etc. — are just signs leading to faith. It is up to you to read them and head in the right direction.

I believe in God.

Now allow me to clarify.

I do not believe in and old, bearded, man that lives in the sky and registers any type of human emotion, response, reaction, etc to the things (for good or ill) that we humans are doing down here on earth. I do not believe God is gendered or corporeal. God is unknowable, unfathomable, and beyond reproach.

I do believe God is all. God is the first cause and everything else is the effect. God is vibration, vibration is energy, energy is light, and light is existence. You cannot comprehend God. You can only comprehend your relationship with God.

Religions began regionally to spread the word of God to the local masses in a language they could understand. Time went by and a greedy few realized the potential to enslave the needy many with threats of punishment and promises of reward in the hereafter. They cloaked the truth with dogma and began to build the world we now live in.

God is in and of all. The human distinctions we make (Jew/Christian, black/white, straight/gay, etc) are material markers that our small human perception uses to define the existence we find ourselves in. They are also the catalysts used by organized religion to control and weaponize our thoughts.

Life-Changing Decisions

I stopped going to church as soon as I was old enough to make that decision on my own.  Back then I had questions (as most children do) about God and our church (as most churches are) was a place of instruction—not a place to ask questions.

Too Hell With You

At one point in my life, I was convinced that my mother believed that I was destined to go to hell because I did not go to church. If I am being honest I still think she believes that. I don’t judge her for it—That is the way she was programmed. I am, however, at peace with the fact that I cannot change her mind one way or the other. It used to bother me to no end. I used to try to explain my deep relationship with God to her in hopes that she would stop worrying and looking at me the way she does every Saturday when she asks me if I will be going to church Sunday. It does not bother me at all now—that is her cross to bear, not mine.

Bullshit, and All That Jazz

The heart of this website lies in those lost, and lonely, moments I spent feeling like God did not love me because I was not like everyone else who was sitting in those pews every Sunday. It’s bullshit—plain and simple. I have known many good people that have spent their entire lives shunning God because they have been constantly told that God shuns them. I have also known many good people who have treated others atrociously because they did not fit their programmed opinion of who God approves of.

A Change Is Gonna Come

Here’s the truth: I (and others) will never be approved of by organized religion. That does not matter anymore. The masses are—slowly, but surely—waking up. They are realizing that it is not what you do one day a week in front of others (that believe the same things you do), but rather what you do every day of the week FOR everyone else that matters.
