The truth is hitting us from many directions. All the
religions, science and philosophy are seeing the same truth in
different distorted ways. What is truly basic is that there is
something above our consciousness that keeps us from going crazy.
Our brain is made of billions of cells. Each cell is
independent to a certain extent and without guidance would pull us
in different directions. In order to get all the cells on the same
page, we need a kind and wise teacher from within.
Without a teacher, as such, some cells would stage a coup within us
or make us so confused. For example, alcoholic cells can destroy our
life. To counter this, we a strong leader above us, that is
kind, knows more than we do and can answer our questions about life.
By being truly spiritual, we can tap into this extremely smart and
The connection to this source is within us. The connection is
not in heaven, or outside us. For believers, this connection
connects to the maker of the whole universe. Nonbelievers might not
agree. But this source is real.
The connection we can assume is part of our brain. It causes
the brain to work as a whole.
Just calling it a connection does not give it enough importance.
Some call it God. God is a word that needs a definition.
So many people think they know all about God, I think we need a
different word. I choose to call this interface our
superconsciousness. It is an interface between us
If we don't tune in to our superconsciousness we suffer the
consequences. For example If we believe in only science, then
we are just atoms and particles. People, then could be
regarded as just atoms and particles. Everything would be
without the beauty of human nature. We would be lost.
We have to build our superconsciousness connection though spiritual
practices. We can talk to our superconsciousness and ask for advance
if we do our homework. We need to be spiritually educated.
Where to Start
First we must learn what we can about all religions, all
philosophies and science. We must learn about ourselves though
religious practices such as meditation.
Some individuals can teach us important truths. For example,
Don Miguel Ruiz's book The Four Agreements, Companion Book
is a very good read. Ruiz explains that we are always
dreaming, even when we are awake. Our dream while we are awake
is a special dream orchestrated by our senses. If we are to
grow and be wise, we learn how adjust our reality dream so it
optimizes our life.
Religions are Based on Stories
All religions are belief stories. In one sense they are all telling
the same story in many different ways with a lot of superstition
thrown in. If we stick to the general gist of the story, we
are better off than trying to believe all the details. So like
washing off the dirt from the surface of the writings, and removing
all contractions and seeing what things are common between religions
and science we have a giant step forward.
If some teachings seem like made up stories, let them alone.
If the teachings bear fruit, keep them. So what is left?
Some of the stuff that has helped me include: The Five
Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. These agreements include
"do the best you can", "be honest", "do not take anything
personally", "don't make assumptions" and "be skeptical but learn to
From Christianity I like the ideas: "believe in God", and "love your
neighbor". Also the books such as Conversations with God
by Neale Donald Walsch updates old religious beliefs with renewed
