    Statism, Another Name For A Religion

      Voting, like the Second Coming, is just another way to keep the People waiting for a savior, who will never, ever come. Meanwhile, religion and government, and the people who actually are part of these two systems, get wealthier and wealthier while real change, meaning the end of poverty and war, will continue as long as the People support such things. The People have to save themselves or they will always be dominated, controlled and manipulated by the few who will always take care of themselves. It’s about time the People really took care of themselves, too, and shared in the wealth, too, in a more equitable, just and logical way, not in the vastly disproportionate way the systems are and have always been since time immemorial. Governments should be afraid of their People, not the opposite.

    Our Prison Planet

    Clip from the 1962 film, Birdman of Alcatraz. Observations on the most important and critical scene in the entire story of the film. This clip is what is called the ‘worth the price of admission scene’ because it tells the world bluntly and truthfully what this world is about and has always been about: power and control. Will the world ever change?______ PRIEST = Religion (played by George Mitchell as Father Matthieu) WARDEN = Society, represented by Government (played by Karl Malden as Harvey Shoemaker) PRISONER = The INDIVIDUAL human soul, INDIVIDUAL mind, INDIVIDUAL body on this physical planet (played by Burt Lancaster as Robert Franklin Stroud) (Note: In real life, Robert Stroud, as portrayed by Burt Lancaster, was a notorious psychopathic homosexual. I wonder why he was psychopathic? Hasn’t the world always treated homosexuals so well?)______ SCENE: The scene opens with: Prisoner talking to Religion – “I’m going to wallop you today!” Prisoner talks to Religion about the book he’s going to write.

    Thoughts On Omneity

    Theism, one day, will be a thing of the past, considered as part of a system of authority that is just like the authorities in this physical world. If there is a controlling force in this Universe it must be everywhere and in everything that exists, whether visible or invisible. ‘Omneity’ [omneity (ɒmˈniːɪtɪ) n. the state or condition of being all ] is a name which could be defined as the controlling force for all of existence. We all are Omneity, individually, and as a collective whole in Omneity we are each as a drop of ocean water, which, collectively, is the ocean. The whole ocean of existence is the totality of all the components that make up the entirety of the ocean of sea water; there cannot be one without the other. The word ‘God’ is in an anthropomorphic idea of Deity, the ultimate authoritarian controlling force anthropomorphized as a being in human form somewhere out there, in the heavens. Consciousness is the mysterious nature of our very being, so, an image of a god or goddess is a limitation of that reality of an infinite universe and infinite possibilities. An anthropomorphic being, where someone in an infinite realm,…

    Religion vs. Spirituality

    It has become quite popular in recent years to distinguish between spirituality and religion. It’s true that there are valid distinctions between the two, but there are also a number of problematic distinctions which often and unnecessarily divide the two fields of thought. One principal problem with attempts to separate religion from spirituality is that the former is saddled with everything negative while the latter is exalted with everything positive. It is important to note the fact that many of the negative things which people attribute to religions are features of some forms of some religions (usually Judaism, Christianity, and Islam), but not of other religions (like Taoism or Buddhism). Religion is spiritual and spirituality can also be considered religious. One tends to be more personal and private while the other tends to incorporate public rituals and organized doctrines. The lines between one and the other may often not be clear or distinct depending on the interpretation. Consider these definitions: Religion is an institution established by man for various reasons. Exert control, instill morality, stroke egos, or whatever it does. Organized, structured religions all but remove god from the equation. You confess your sins to a clergy member, go to…
