Facets of Wisdom: On Religion as a Tool of the Dark

Eliza:  On Religion as a Tool of the Dark

Source

I admit that the Church has not been the only culprit, but has been one of the most outstanding ones. Still, violence has been committed against people in the name of many religions for centuries. Why? Because it is an effective tool in keeping people separated from each other and ultimately from the Divine within.  And with the sense of separation comes the fear of the unknown.  The Church, with its dogma and threats, has manipulated people into believing that they required absolution through the intervention of a priest, minister or other religious people.  According to Church doctrine, the individual was incapable of communicating directly with God, or whatever form of Divine, they worshipped.

How so, you might ask? Well, if people hold hatred within their hearts towards others, the Universal Law of Reflection, turns that hatred, also, inward to the one sending it forth. And the dark lords know the laws well and so intentionally use them against an ignorant and fearful people that they have cowed into obedience. And in feeling the self-hatred, the self-loathing is projected outward even more, until the one sending it forth has become a very effective tool in the hands of the dark lords, all the while incurring a great deal of karma for doing so. Thus control is assured for lifetimes as the individual attempts to work it out only to be ensnared again when they cannot break free of their bonds through their own effort.

This kind of behavior continues worldwide. In some countries where politics, science, and the worship of celebrities have become the new religions, there are still attacks made on those who are different, don’t fit in, are of other cultures, poor, mentally or physically disabled and so on.

I stepped away from my Christian heritage years ago. After reading a huge tome on the origins of Christianity I began to realize that it was a fabricated religion that has been manipulated and adapted to suit the motives and plans of those who hold the true power within its secret interior. So cowed were the heads of countries, kings, and emperors that they dreaded the threat of excommunication… that is unless they had the audacity to create and install their own pope, such as happened in the early years of the Renaissance in France. For a short time, there were two popes, which must have been confusing to the most literate of the population, primarily church-taught scholars.

It was events such as this that have convinced me that the church, while outwardly appears to be a light upon the dark world, is merely a tool used by skilled politicians and manipulators behind the scenes to keep humanity at each other’s throats. Divide and conquer has long been the way the masses of humanity have been kept in check and it is have been very effective, at least up until now… with the dawning of the Satya Yuga, the new golden age.

Nature Walks – Wakodahatchee Nesting Season

Nature Walks – Wakodahatchee Nesting Season

One learns about Nature through observations made over the long-term, following seasons and cycles, drought and heat, wet and humid, wind and rain.  Since arriving in South Florida nearly a year ago, I’ve spent a little time in the local wetland preserves each week.  Lately, I’ve observed the changes in coloring in some of the birds.  The changes can be subtle or quite marked.  Some birds, like the tall stoic Wood Storks, don’t seem to change coloring but do change their behaviors, becoming more affectionate and attentive to their chosen mates.  The herons seem to take on a change of color around the eyes and upper beaks.  This morning, I noticed some Tri-colored Herons in breeding colors, having a beautiful blue color around the eyes.  The Great Egret takes on a green color around the eyes and so on.

Babies are still being made, while some babies have already hatched.  I saw a couple of  Great Blue Heron fledglings just holding their fuzzy heads above the branches of their nest.  Most birds have gone into the breeding cycle, with Anhingas, Wood Storks, Egrets and Herons often sharing the same pond apple trees.

This Purple Gallinule was busy picking and eating the tender shoots on the bottom of these reeds.

The people who visit the wetlands can also be a source of amusement.  I overheard one woman pointing out a nesting Cattle Egret while telling her friend that it was a baby Wood Stork.  No… a breeding Cattle Egret has a golden head and back like this one.  In a month or so… certainly by April, it will be quite evident that the young Wood Storks are considerably larger and noisier than the small Cattle Egrets.  I don’t even consider myself an expert on birds, but I have managed to learn a few things in the space of ten months.

That’s all for now, folks.  Enjoy your weekend.  And all those who are having some really cold weather and storms this weekend in the NE and Europe, keep warm and safe!

Namaste,

Poetry by Sounds of Running Water

Running Horses

The Poetry of Sounds of Running Waters (via G.S.H.)

In one of my many incarnations, I was privileged to be the father of a beautiful, talented and spirited daughter, Sounds of Running Water, or in the Nez Perce language, Hophopponmi. In the last battle, we were forever separated by circumstance. I am honored to present some of her poetry today as I have reconnected with the soul who was my daughter, as I was Hin-mah-too-yah-lat-kekt “Thunder Traveling to Loftier Mountain Tops” or simply, Young Joseph. My daughter’s words are strong and speak of the land and life that we both loved. I hope you enjoy them.

My Father’s Horses
I used to love watching the horses. They
seemed so wild and carefree,
and I knew they were watching me.
Sometimes I’d have a dream that they
carried me away
out onto the open plain
and in the morning I could…
