Goddess and Her God is accepting regardless of age, sex, color, or preference in ones’ life mate. Dogmatic religious organizations having creeds, demanding conformity, professing to know the One and Only truth and preaching with a convergent fervency that man made god is to be feared, lack or fail to observe and put forth the same acceptance.
I ask you, child of god, if we are told god loves us, god is love and further we need to put our trust in god for god is the everlasting hands of refuge we need to place ourselves in; Then how do we – Children of The One, surrender (renounce ourselves) to this hellish projection of supposed ultimate love? We don’t! Not willingly at least, with open heart and peaceful mind. We do, however, submit (comply, resign, conform) much I see in fear of NOT KNOWING GOD – Not knowing the truth. Perhaps we need to fear not knowing God, the precious light, the vital breath, the Divines presence within our very own true Self – The original Source, that, whose image we are born in, yet cannot see with these eyes filled with fear and forgetfulness. Yes! THAT’S IT – We all strive so diligently for the room to express our individual uniqueness and we scarcely know what that means let alone who that unique individual is – So quick to conform for fear of facing hell; so quick to comply with concepts we do not fully understand or accept; and we cast damnation at all gods “other” children if they do not join in, with great scorn and a ferocious meanness against “them”. We set out in this mind set of fear based self righteousness, determined to bend and eventually break the spirits of gods developing children, be they one or 101, if they have not learned to fear god the way we do. Even those whom have worshiped and served Gods presence in nature and the human condition are damned to hell according to the doctrines and preaching of such religious organizations – Why? Because any other path leading to the ultimate love – Righteousness Itself is considered wrong or evil if it does not possess dogmatic tendencies of prejudice, being judgmental and the open un-acceptance (banishment) of all Gods other children. Children, I repeat, fear not knowing God, for to not know God is to live a life without compassion. Without compassion – which is, by the way, understanding and acceptance of all Gods creatures we cannot, we will not proceed by Gods will to the kingdom of Heaven that lies within. Gandhi said, “God is love and love is God”. I say, Fear not knowing That love – God. You see child, love knows no prejudice, no segregation, love just is. All other love is tainted with conditions – Human perceptions of the belief one is living the Word – But I know that in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was Goddess\God (SPIRIT & Elements in motion)
We are born of Goddess\God idea; that idea being pervasive love projected in (their) image – no more, no less, no change but ever unchanging love – Prem – Who are we to second guess in the name of mans’ made up God, and change the idea of Ultimate Preceptor to suit our selfish need to play God…..
