Tuesday Thoughts

Religion is like a penis…
It is fine to have one.
It is fine to be proud of it.
But please do not whip it out in public and start waving it around.
And PLEASE do not try to shove it down my children’s throat.

"I think. Ergo,I am " said Socrates

Truth,Faith and Believes'. 
Three very platitudinous concepts.
Truth negates everything the ugly ego stands for.

You can tell a person’s ignorance by their grip on their ego. Faith on the other hand is a funny issue. So many say they have it when they don’t. When tested, they fall and then they bitch how unfair everything is.

The Faithful knows. You automatically realize when you achieve it.
No self doubt. Can you imagine that kind of life,readers…… no second guessing anyone or anything, no future planning needs…. Just surrendering actively to the God Consciousness in pure bliss.

It's not as easy as it sounds.

Sure shit will happen…..but ask for direction and help (which helps reduce the ego)…and you will receive it.

Defensiveness, stubbornness, unrighteous anger, prejudice, arrogance, intellectual pride, lack of humor,these are all symptoms of self-reinforcement, when that’s the last thing in the world you want to fortify.

Please take a moment to re read the above.
Moving on, belief is even weirder.
You can tuck almost anything under the belief umbrella.
It’s about as vague a concept as you can get.

On top of that it’s terribly misused. “I believe I can fly” is a popular song refrain.
You do? Just don’t do like the kid on acid and jump off a building.
Do what our parents said and try to take off from the ground first.
Ah, idiocy. All encouraged by the popular culture vultures. 

When you know something you know it. Hindu sages' analogy explains that you already know everything you want to know but you just forgot you knew it.
It’s experiential. You just have to find yourselves. You start by truthfully believing in faith.

People just aren’t clear a lot of the time. 
The belief word comes to the fore for lack of clear understanding. 
I've been told"The cool thing about real Consciousness is when you’re there, you just know".

When you’re not, you temporarily “forget” and just need to get back to where you know.
