...on Religion & Spirituality
Religion is really people’s ideas about God taken too seriously. There isn’t anything that should be taken too seriously.
The truth is that the only real religion that matters is one’s own. God should be experienced however one understands and perceives God, whether it be nature, music, energy, love, nothing, everything.
When I found Unity I also found a new view of God—a God with a tag line like a human resources disclaimer: “I do not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or any other ridiculous reason you could invent as an excuse not to love someone else.”
The Tao Te Ching says, "Reveal your naked self and embrace your original nature!" Just as we remove clothing one layer at a time, our life's work is to progressively remove layers of thoughts and beliefs until one day we stand as we were meant to be, a pure expression of the Divine.
