People feel their religion as right, and others as wrong and this causes conflict. But truthfully, all religions are based on the same thing if you look at their roots.
Religion is all about; “do what I say without asking.” “If you don’t believe it you’re going to hell.”
Religion is going through a middle man.
You’re not experiencing it for yourself.
But we all have different paths to enlightenment.
Reading the Bible isn’t a Free Pass to Heaven
We should not be following the Bible word for word. It is just a foundation for spirituality.
Same goes for every other religion out there.
It was just one guy’s experience. It was one guy who reached enlightenment or salvation; or whatever you want to call it.
It is better to follow a religion than not follow one. But don’t take the one you follow so seriously and so literally. Just learn the important parts and apply them to your life.
Don’t view your religion as right and others as wrong.
They are all teaching the same things. There is not one set path to how you reach your highest self.
Spirituality is all about learning and finding your own path. You shouldn’t read a book and follow someone else’s path. Everyone has their own path to enlightenment.
If you follow the Bible, just reading it and understanding it doesn’t give you a free pass to “heaven.”
You are supposed to look at how Jesus lived and then live a life similar to his. But don’t follow his path. Learn the important lessons and imply them to your life.
-Practice Selfless Service
-act without expecting return
-do it because it is the right thing to do (helping an old lady across the street.)
Jesus Was Not the Son of God
Jesus claimed him and God were one. He did not necessarily mean he was the Son of God. I believe he meant he shared a strong conscious connection with God. And anyone that reaches this level of consciousness will also be one with God.
His name wasn’t Jesus Christ. He was Jesus of Christ; meaning he was Christ Conscious.
He reached enlightenment and was sharing his experience and teaching how to become one with God (reach Christ Consciousness).
Christ Consciousness is the frequency that “God” and the universe operate on.
The goal in life is to reach Christ Consciousness.
This is done by learning how to be the best version of yourself and working everyday to reach your full spiritual potential.
It isn’t done by reading the Bible and going to church and you’re all set.
How to Reach Your Full Spiritual Potential
You are a spiritual being having a human experience.
The goal in life is to kill the ego. We are living this life as human beings and as a result we have animal pleasures and desires.
Our goal is to fight all of those animalistic pleasures and desires and destroy the ego. The purpose of this lifetime was to learn about awareness and consciousness and become aware of the “I”
This isn’t necessarily possible for most in the spiritual world because there, you just exist and just are. You are not really separate from anyone or anything because you are everything. Everything is connected.
In this life as a human being you get to feel what it is like to be a separate entity and have an “I”. It can be very scary and uncomfortable for most. The goal is to come together and be one. Love everyone and everything. Accept everyone and everything. Use meditation to kill your ego. Grow as a spirit. Experience everything.
Stop indulging in physical pleasures and start doing the things that will make you the best version of yourself.

Christ Has Already Returned
“Contrary to the predictions of the return of Jesus, no such event will take place. As with so many things in Christianity, the events and concepts apply to changes in awareness and consciousness, not physical events. Just as salvation is not as it is portrayed in the literal sense, but is a transformation in spiritual consciousness, so too is the Second Coming a transformation in a person’s spiritual consciousness and connection to God, not an outer physical event.”
