Thomas La Grua's Journey to Awakening

A short view on religion (from my Face Book)

To be honest, I have little to no use for “any” of the thousands of religions of this world, (all claiming to be “the one”) including Atheism. In my view, the problem with them is that they encourage individuals to place the blame and responsibility on god, while at the same time promoting the idea that one can do whatever he/she wants because her sins will be or have already been forgiven. The guidelines/advice that Jesus provided were simple, clear, and never met/stated to be incorporated into a bible so incomprehensible that they required religion(s) with millions of leaders to interpret its words. What I’ve been doing (and it’s a process) is raising my standards, and I’m finding that life is actually becoming more simple and enjoyable. For example, when assessing a situation, I apply self honesty and common sense, and ask myself what is best for all. Notice that I didn’t say “the word of god”, or the teachings of a religion. Why? Because, the truth (although usually right in front of our eyes) is usually mixed in with so many lies, that it’s often very difficult to see. In the spoken and written words, we can find the truth – the problem is we just don’t see or hear it. For example: break down the word, “believe”, and you get “belie” = To give a false representation to; misrepresent… or to “be the lie”. Why when someone dies do we go to a-wake? Is it that, although one has just died, he in now a wake, meaning that we’re alive but we’re asleep? Truth pertaining to the moment will almost always be the easiest to see (It’s right in front of our eyes because it has to be.), yet we won’t see it because it’s buried/surrounded by so much other information; and herein “lies” the bible.
