The_Beatle
The_Beatle I believe that "God", (or whatever terminology one uses to describe the concept) is a conscious, present and loving force. This love force is receptive to all attempts to connect with it. The mistake I believe people make when they align themselves with organized religion is that every religion ultimately states it's dogma as the "Only" way to connect with this force. "Only" if you accept Jesus as your savior..."Only" if you state the words of surrender to Allah..."Only" if you follow Jim Jones without question. My own dedicated journey to connect with God took me through quite a number of religious approaches, and I discovered the most incredible thing...whenever I opened my heart with full desire and sincerity to any particular method of outreach, I made the connection. Because the connection is so real...so powerful...so euphoric...so transcendent, the truth is that if someone created a religion called "Headstanders", and proclaimed that all other religions were "Wrong", and that standing on one's head was the "Only" way to find God, anyone who hungered to be touched by God and stood on their head with an open heart , would absolutely make that direct connection with their higher power, and because the connection would be so miraculous...so beautiful...so filled with light and joy...THAT person would believe for the rest of their lives that Christians are wrong, Jews are wrong, Muslims are wrong, etc., because they would know first hand from their own experience that the only way to connect with God is to stand on one's head.
