I am a Spiritual Activist with a B.A. in Philosophy and an unfinished Graduate Degree in Theology. My goal is to continue the work of Joshua (Yeshua), end religious indoctrination and heal people. The next step is re-engaging spirit in an active and dynamic way. We are to be co-creators with God, our individual consciousness accesses God consciousness to make new and unique experiences. Joshua was a Spiritual Activist too and his goal was to end religious tyranny and reawaken people as individual consciousness united with God consciousness.
It seems I have spent a lifetime trying to understand spirituality. My path has led me from Philosophy, to Buddhism, to Catholicism and now to early Christianity. Violent indoctrination has played a vital role in the development of Christianity and guilt and fear are the instruments of its sustainability. Like birds following an ingrained migratory pattern, our DNA, our very essence has been stamped by years of persecution and our ability to reason to come to a logical conclusion has been replaced by the unquestioned “mystery of faith”.
We live in a time when we may fear social isolation, but persecution is largely something in the past for most of the Western world. We have an opportunity to stop and truly evaluate that which we have been taught to believe and try to understand what is truly authentic. We have an obligation to look beyond simple acceptance and know why we believe what we believe. We need to unravel years of indoctrination and step back with the critical 21st century eyes we use to understand the rest of our world and look deeply at our faith.
A creator God is undeniable, a source, an originator, but how we approach this God may be a whole new world. Let’s begin again.
