Yesterday I saw two people praying at this church. It touched my heart. There was a brief connection. One man lived in the neighborhood, the other was the janitor who’s unemployed now but was coming by to clean up any way -just because it’s his job, whether he’s paid or not. The janitor asked to not be in the photo, worried, he didn’t want to cause any trouble being seen in prayer. I felt that. Like a silent agreement to connect -with each other, with God, with higher consciousness, with something bigger than ourselves without upsetting anyone else’s beliefs. The other man cont’d praying. .
What came through in this moment was a reminder it doesn’t matter who or what we call God. The thing is most of us believe there is something bigger, wiser, better than us and that this bigger, better, wiser being/energy/consciousness has the ability to transcend the trappings of our wars, disputes, politics, personality feuds, agendas, consumption, division. .
I think we can only believe or have thoughts like this if there is something inherently true to the notion. Humans fundamentally desire peace, and harmony. .
We’re also weird, selfish, free creatures seeking individuality within the group.
The more and sooner we enlighten the masses to view worship and religion more like energy the better we’ll all understand each other and get along. Like, we never fight over which electric company one uses. Just a means to receive power to light ones house. God is the power to illuminate our soul with clear direction for perfect fulfillment of our souls and purpose.
Every temple I enter is a place of worship. I sit with God in deep reverence under every name. I bow and sing praises to Krishna, Yeshua, Abraham, Buddha, Mohammed, Moses, Zoroaster, Akhenaten, Nefertiti, Solomon, Isis, Magdalen, Shiva, Lakshmi, Tara, Allah, Elohim, Ein Sof, Yehova, the name that cant be named, the name of all names, the name that remains the same no matter which name. The angels watch us in envy while we waste our time with separation, selfishness and hate. But that day is over. History is behind us. Today we honor and allow worship in whatever way feels good -because we chose love.
