Ascending Above Religion

Separation is an illusion.

There is no separation between us and our innate divinity and there is no separation between us and all that is.  This belief that we are separate from God and that we must earn the right to Heaven through penance to religion is in illusion created to block us from discovering the truth. The truth that we are all One with God.

The illusion of separation has pitted humanity against each other and prevented us from recognizing and embracing our own truth. The veil of separation many of us have been taught to believe in only exists when we believe it does and is an illusion that was created to keep us under control through the ambiguity of fear. Where this belief came from, and whether it was fed to us consciously or not, is irrelevant. It is simply a part of our collective evolution and we are outgrowing it.

Love conquers all.

The supremacy, competition and separation that are based in fear are coming to an end. The time of control-over and victim-under is coming to an end. The time of obedience and submission is coming to an end. The time of master and servant is coming to an end. The time of masculine dominance and feminine subordination is coming to an end. As these archaic beliefs of fear and separation come to an end, a time of love and oneness is emerging.

The time of a new earth based in love has come, as the Divine Feminine emerges to take Her place in balance and equality. With Her return she brings love, compassion, understanding, collaboration, clarity, creativity, healing and the nurturing of all of humanity. She loves her children without fear, guilt or expectation and sees the infinite possibilities that exist for us individually and collectively. She encourages us through love rather than obedience through fear. She inspires us to open our eyes in wonder, rather asking that we see only through blind faith. She loves all of Her children equally.

Now comes the time that we recognize that human rights must take precedence and that all beings are deserving of respect, dignity and equality. The time of understanding that human rights are our Divine birthright, and that all other rights are man-made. The energies of transformation, understanding, and unity are now overriding fundamentalism, judgment and separation. It is time for love to conquer all, because love really is the most powerful force in the Universe and it is all there really is. Everything else is an illusion based in the limitations of our ancient physical understanding.

Suffering is no longer necessary.

Suffering is no longer necessary to get us to God and never has been, that has always been part of the illusion of fear and control. The illusion of fear and separation is coming to an end as all truths are revealed and much of humanity is ready to ascend above religion. We have evolved into our own truth and connection to Spirit without the limitations and constrictions of dogma. Each one of us now has the ability, for the first time in our human history, to make conscious free-will choices as all truths are brought into the light. We are no longer limited by the information that is fed to us by controlled sources.  We can choose to no longer be manipulated by fear and coercion. We can each choose actions and perceptions that limit us individually and collectively, or we choose actions and perceptions that liberate us individually and collectively. We can choose to follow our own truths, rather than the beliefs that others have placed upon us.

Every belief we have, every word we speak and every action we take ultimately affects all of humanity and our collective evolution. We are all co-creators of our reality and we can choose to no longer buy into the belief that we are separate.  We are all One with all that is, and each of us play a role in our collective, conscious evolution. It is up to each of us to recognize that we are all One with each other and One with that which many call God. Together we create a new reality based in love rather than fear.

Those of us who have ascended above religion are here to teach others how to find their own truth, follow their own path and find their own connection to Spirit.

Fear to Freedom

This is a short presentation I recently gave to a group of spiritual seekers. I share a bit of my story about growing up in Fundamentalist Mormonism, how the fear-based beliefs of my childhood affected me as an adult and my journey into finding my own truth.

Each one of us is on a journey of personal evolution in the progression of our own soul and each one of us has specific lessons we pre-determined we wanted to learn in our physical journey. Each one of us has our own unique path and each one of us has our own truth depending on where we are in our own soul’s progression. While there are Universal truths which exist at the core of all humanity, with or without religion, we also have our own individual truths that guide us in our physical journey and the journey of our soul.

In this understanding we can see that there is no “one right way to God” as many of our religions have misguided us to believe. These beliefs were created to keep us under control through the ambiguity of fear. Whether this was done consciously or not is irrelevant, because it is simply a part of our collective evolution. This belief that there is only one path set a course for humanity to be pitted in againstness, rather than oneness. These beliefs have been responsible for pitting cultures against each other and pitting men against women. They have been responsible for the belief that some of us are worth more than others and created the inability for us to recognize and embrace our own truth.

When we all learn to understand that there is more than one path, more than one right way, and more than one truth, and that we are all of equal worth and value, then we will finally have the global peace we all seek. When we override our fear based-beliefs with love, then we will feel the inner peace we all innately desire. When we learn to see every human being through the eyes of unconditional love, then we will have created the heaven on earth that we are ALL ultimately able to create, because it is the very essence of who we are. We need only work down through our limiting beliefs and become one with our own truth, which is always connected to that which many call God.

Polygamy, Homosexuality and Open Marriage are like Apples, Oranges and Grapes

Many people continually contend that it polygamy is a lifestyle choice similar to same-sex partnerships. Others contend that there is no comparison, and that comparing polygamy to homosexuality is akin to comparing apples to oranges.  So which one is it?  I suggest that this subject is really more like comparing apples, oranges and grapes.  That there is no comparison between polygamy, homosexuality and open marriage because they are three very different things.

In most cases throughout America and around the world, polygamy is not about love.  Rather it is about men’s sexuality and the subjugation of women. It is being sold to women as love, convincing them it is for their own good. The history of marriage as a whole is not about love, the sanctity of husband and wife, or about morality. Marriage was created as a means of bartering stock and virgins took top dollar.  Women who had been tainted, by whatever means, had no value and became servants in their own homes or even murdered by their families for their disgrace.  Women were held responsible for men’s behavior and still are to this day to some degree; don’t even get me started on that…. Men wanted to be guaranteed that their seed was the only seed planted in the womb of a woman.  We still see this reflected in the “giving away of a daughter to her new husband” in our marriage ceremonies today. We see this reflected in the white virgin wedding dress and in the veil intended to hide a woman’s face until the transaction is complete.  And we see it reflected in the wedding vows when a woman promises to “respect and obey” her new husband. Granted these vows have been changing as women become more assured of their true worth and potential and as marriage becomes more recognized as a partnership rather than ownership.

There is a vast difference between open sexual relationships with multiple partners and marriages with lifetime and eternal contracts that often accompany polygamy. In the tradition of polygamy, women are collected by men who had the financial means to purchase and own them. Great kings of the Bible were the largest holders of land, property, wealth and women. This does not necessarily make them men of God. Each of the men who are revered by modern men for polygamy was chastised by God for their gluttony and greed.  Yet modern day men still put them on a pedestal, wanting to be more like them.  Many of us base our current day beliefs and practices on the practices of men thousands of years ago, without taking into consideration that the stories were written for the socio-economic situations of the day. They were not written for those of us who might be reading them thousands of years later. We were the furthest things from their mind because just like us they were dealing with their own day-to-day issues.  Yet we have made it our business to read into these stories and extrapolate what we want to hear. Anything and everything has been justified in the name of religion and has been extracted from the stories in the historical documents that we consider to be God’s word.  Every known atrocity from war, slavery, servitude, child abuse, murder, sacrifice, torture and polygamy has been found in our ancient texts, and these findings are still used today as justification for such human rights abuses.

When I hear people asking to have the law against polygamy overturned it breaks my heart.  President Abraham Lincoln recognized it for what it was had it banished along with slavery.  Reversing this opens up a Pandora ’s Box.  Polygamy is not the same as open marriage, although that is how it is now being sold in America.  It is simply a term that is being thrown about as the latest buzzword for alternative relationship choices.  But they are very, very different in reality.  I agree that we cannot put restrictions on how people choose to express their love and sexuality as long as it does not hurt anyone else.  Mutually consenting adults who genuinely express love and explore the pleasures of what it means to be human is entirely different from the binding contract of marriage. Numerous studies show that polygamy, specifically polygyny, is harmful to society.  For those who gravitate to open relationships, enjoy all of the love-making you desire, just please don’t call it polygamy.

And then of course there is homosexuality. This is not a lifestyle choice and we now have the scientific evidence to back this up.  It cannot be caught like a disease and it is not a perversion. Morality is defined by individuals not by nature. Some of the most beautiful, loving and spiritual people I know are homosexual. It is simply how they are biologically designed. One part of me can’t help but wonder if this is part of our collective evolution.  As we overburden the planet will we biologically mutate to slow the population grown? This is yet to be seen…

To recap, Polygamy is a human rights abuse that has most-often been justified by religion, open relationships are a lifestyle choice and homosexuality is biological. There is simply no comparison between the three.  Apples, oranges and grapes!
