Having experienced negative emotions growing up, we mistakenly think we need to deny our emotions to approach the Divine.


“God is not angry, vengeful, or any negative emotions, but since, having experienced mostly that and not being able to imagine truly wonderful positive emotions, we think we can approach the Divine by denying emotions as well. We wish to repress passion, anger, and tears out of existence. Churches call them “sinful”; we deem them “inappropriate” in middle class homes. We create stories where Spock-like figures are said to be mystical, religious, holy, when actually it is Frodo who is. Abbie Hoffman was more mystical, in this sense, than any Pat Robertson or Billy Graham.”

We make a mistake in denying our senses to foster spirituality: “We kill the God in us, thinking we are becoming more God-full that way.”


“Going outside of our pain, outside of the confines of thought created by our fears, we see that God, Life, Reality truly *is* glorious. And that includes being interesting. Divinity is not sensual because it is lacking in sensuality but because it is beyond sensuality, something greater than the experience of mere perception of things, which we call sensing things. Yet we try to approach It by denying our senses, not expanding them. Thus we kill the God in us, thinking we are becoming more God-full that way.”

Sock Puppets for Divinity: “Everything is perfect. There is no way you can screw it up…”


Did you know? We are not the doer and the actor. God is. All is God.

We are merely the glove on the fingers of the Divine. We are sock puppets for Divinity.

Our only job is to enjoy the ride. Enlightenment is merely getting to know that fact.

***

Everything is perfect.

There is no way you can screw it up…

Surrender.

Be taught.

Enjoy.

Religions, and most spiritualities, take the most alive thing imaginable–God, Source–and reduce it to something physical and safe–light, vibration, energy, a statue Jesus

“…we’ve built theologies out of our fears. We’ve created religions to soothe and deny our experiences … our Experience. Well, this has nothing to do with Reality. Indeed, in denial of our experience … and Experience … it is the opposite of it. The theologies and religions … and many spiritualities … have nothing to do with God, either. They take the most alive, profound, glorious, and exciting things imaginable (and unimaginable) and reduce them to nothing … and thus to something that is safe: A statue Jesus. A distant and unknowable God. An amorphous, boring, and bland Universal Consciousness. An impersonal detail of the physical world like light, vibration, or energy. All of which — in denial of what we truly feel about them and their coldness, abstractness, or emptiness — we call glorious, ultimate, grand … and loving. Like those heartless parental figures we wished had been there for us … but weren’t….”

“We are terrified of an emotionless monster, which we call God”: The Tao of Funny God and the Mind’s True Liberation


“We’ve experienced meanness and cruelty in our early lives, so we imagine a Divine with no qualities at all. We say It is loving, but in an incomprehensible way and “from a distance.” So how loving … really … is someone who is distant? We don’t see ourselves as free and loved and forgiven … let alone, sinless and unjudged. We are terrified of  an emotionless monster, which we call God, which we say is loving, but who we depict as emotionless so as to be better able to apprehend than if we depicted Him as we felt Him to be … cruel. We’d rather think of God as being nothing … or devitalized … rather than heartless; like we feel Him to be, because of our experiences with authorities in childhood.


“The point is that we’ve built theologies out of our fears. We’ve created religions to soothe and deny our experiences … our Experience. Well, this has nothing to do with Reality. Indeed, in denial of our experience … and Experience … it is the opposite of it…..”

What does it say about those of us who chose to reincarnate in this time period? The Tao of Funny God and the Mind’s True Liberation

 “…there are times when the grand vision is wanted, even if it is more painful. Some lives you want to loll on the beach. Some lives you want to go to Life University and understand it all … er, actually, overstand it all.”

“…here’s where it gets really, really interesting. If we are living in simultaneous realities, and at different levels … even to the point of being the entire enchilada and having the experience of being God … well, what does that say about each and every one of us now, at this time in history?…”
