Where Things Stand

Theist can exist without Atheist
Atheist can only exist due to Theist
Theist is the parent
Atheist is the child
Something can exist without nothing
Nothing can only exist due to Something
Something is the parent
Nothing is the child

Protagonist vs Antagonist

Christ vs Anti-Christ

Good vs Evil

Life vs Death

The patterns are all there!

Middle Ground

I found a group of hardcore atheists.
They were in a place that compelled hatred and sharp tongues.
I found a group of the hardcore religious.
They were in a place that compelled righteousness from fear.
I mention balance…
But they were already trapped by the magnetic poles.
They explained to me there was no such middle ground, so I left.
Where am I?
Where you lean is where you fall.

Perpetually Institutionalized

Dependency drives Government
Government preserves Dependency
The Question drives Philosophy
Philosophy preserves The Question
Fear drives Religion
Religion preserves Fear
We create institutions to serve us. These institutions feed on our need for them. It is not only organic beings that will go to great efforts for survival. It seems that anything we create is a form of life. It descends from the heavens (thought/consciousness) and manifests in what we see as the material world. We are the Gods of our own creations, yet we serve our creations which preserve the lack in ourselves giving us the reason for their creation in the first place.

Transcending Finite

At what point does your spirituality transcend religion?
At what point does your wonder transcend philosophy?
At what point are the finite constructs shattered by the infinite forces which built them?

God does not serve you

“God does not serve you.  You serve yourself and be one with God.”

Does God Exist?

Heaven, peace, God and all other things exist, just not by our definitions or expectations. When we expect nothing of these things and are open beyond our definitions, we allow these things to reveal themselves. It is our expectations that drive us to enforce the result we are expecting, leading us down an adventure/experiment full of lessons. It is all a ride to enjoy and we may choose any path.

Consciousness vs. Responsiveness

If we are ever to reach a “golden age”, it will take a conscious effort. Meaning that; simply responding appropriately to stimuli is not enough. We must use consciousness to allow us to step outside of our reactions in order to see a more complete picture and enable us to act on awareness rather than the relative sensational responses. It will require a majority of our conscious efforts to even begin to move in that direction. It seems to be a battle between consciousness and responsiveness. Right now we are dominated by responsiveness which has led us through many wonderful and horrible places. I wonder where consciousness will lead us. We have yet to grasp the concept collectively, so we can only wonder until we walk the path.
