*caution * do not feel too hard due to my bad vibsHow can a person take part or claim to be part of a religious group that puts blame or shame on people? How is it so easy to inflect pain on another just because they don't fit their qualification? Why is it that because I don't sing in s Sunday choir but sits quietly by myself with my pretty little stones and I'm deemed the devil. My friend likes guys so he's of the devil. My friend colors her hair very blonde and wears a lot of makeup and she a she-devil. Another friend calls herself a naturalist instead of a pagan or Wiccan because the people around her wouldn't understand. Why is the people in church too afraid to stand up and confess their sins in front of God because they know they will be the talk of the town? I'm sorry for all the negativity but it hit me like a band of lotus tonight. It brought me to tears. How has mankind not killed each other off yet. They hate one other so much. The abuse animals and childern. This is why I want to run and hide.

Tesha, thank you. Yes, I does help. Alot of people face some kind of inflected pain each day by another person or group and some have to take medication just to cope with this pain when there is actually nothing wrong with them but the world around them. And I would like to say " rid your would these people" but it's almost impossible because there everywhere.

Wow. It's like you wrote my feeling. It's though a struggle sometimes when you know you can help but I don't have the blessings from the church so I try to help from a distance. Sending love and light. If that makes sense.

I only took meds once for a short period and it calmed my spirit a little to much. I think maybe a sign that it wasn't for me. I know some has to have it in order to deal. You do what you have to, to survive. Just wish I could change the worlds heart...

well zealots may be like that because they want some 'meaning' or a 'place to belong' possibly because they felt alone for a while. also division is so active because group mentality (us vs them) is what helped people survive in the wild. some people are lonely, and want to fit in a 'box' others are still mentally in the wild. but what you put about the make up doesn't make sense to me lol i do not think that is against anything in the bible it says women should dress modestly but make up and hair isnt like stripping and also Esther clothed and adorned herself pretty thoroughly when she was queen. i am not christian but if its bothering you that much try telling them matthew 23:4 if they bug people over stuff that isn't 'sin' according to their belief. i did something like that in a church they couldnt say anything just moved on

Lol. No I wasn't referring to the bible about the make up. I have a very beautiful friend that wears a lot of makeup (but is beautiful with it also) but it looks good on her but due to some females that either don't wear it or don't know how to wear is so very jealous and makes this lady feel bad about herself. She is beautiful from the inside out.I am spiritual and also a child of God but my God is Love so if that disqualifies me from their box then so be it. I am Rene' , everyday.Yes my spirituality has been tested but the smile on my face says "you really don't know, do you". And yes they walk away I just hate to see good people living false lives and inflicting pain for no reason

I also think people think there is safety in numbers so they cling to the closest thing or group that has an explanation their mind can except. And I also guess their gifts arnt the same as mine so therefore I have to be fake. Lol. What ever it is, I have become pretty comfortable in my skin Hello very old spirit. Welcome

From my experience there is loads of different humans, on loads of different levels (levels of how close they are to their true individualized divine nature), and tons of different ways to be confused in some way. Sometime people who are similarly confused come together, or are drawn to a place/ organization etc.

I am not christened, but my upbringing is basically christian, and I sang in church choirs a lot (as a boy). I cannot say that I ever observed what you describe, in the churches I attended in Germany, but I would not be surprised if they are such in Germany too. And obviously I was young and pretty naive during my church years... Is there no other congregation you could join? You might find that another congregation is totally different, more accepting etc. Maybe interview the priest before you join another one etc?

Faith is a funny thing. I guess most faithful will feel 'oneness' to a certain degree, when attending e.g. a church. Oneness is a great feeling, especially on this planet, where 'separation' can be so harsh in normal life. Now if someone tells such people, that they are only allowed to feel more 'oneness' if they believe such, and such - gays are of the devil etc., some get so scared that they might lose oneness if they do not follow those rules, that they obey them unquestioningly.... Takes a lot of love, possibly assertiveness etc - to help such people change their understandings. And sometimes we just have to be an example to them - not live by their rules, live our truth, but still be happy, and (in the long run) apparently not forsaken by the Divine....

Love and Light!!! (this website might cheer you up - http://www.godhatesshrimp.com/)

Hi Rene

There is no need for anyone to be between you and our creator. Organized religion is all about power and control. I was raised as a Catholic and like all religions they don't like people who ask questions. I had to leave them behind.The comedian George Carlin has an excellent album called " Class Clown" that explains this very well. I started doing research at 15 and that was 50 years ago. Hell was invented at the Second Council of Constantinople in 553 AD. It didn't exist before that and is a device to keep people in line. It was decided to invent Hell so that the clergy could keep themselves in a job. The bible was invented by the Catholic Church and does not include all of the books of knowledge of some of the other disciples. I can send you links to those books if you would like to read them. The devil is a version of the nature deity Pan who used to be a good guy until "they" decided that they needed a bad guy. According to "The Urantia Book" Lucifer was a highly evolved spirit in charge of a vast number of planets who let power go to his head. He was removed from his position and replaced. The dark side of humanity is much more evil than any alleged dark spirit. I work with angels and they are very highly evolved spirits of Light and help me to help others. You can bring them into your life if you wish. There is a topic at the Library of Light called "Archangels and You" that has a lot of information on angels. This world is the darkest planet in the universe and has very dense energy. We have just recently crossed a threshold to a higher frequency due to the work of Lightworkers like yourself who have volunteered to come here to this world at this time to elevate the levels of Light, Life and Love. I am including a prayer that was given to me by the Archangel Uriel. It is called Be The Light.

Be the Light

Be the Light in all that you think.

Be theLight in all that you say.

Be the Light in all that you do.

Be the Light and shine the way.

I am also including a link to a topic from the Library of Light that you may find helpful.

I Deserve / Be The Light

I always use the following thought before I say anything that might not be of the Light. It is called THINK

Is it:

Truthful

Helpful

Inspirational

Necessary

Kind

If it is not any of the above perhaps it is a good thing to keep it to ourselves.

Unfortunately we cannot force people to Awaken as that is an interference in their free will. All that we can do is to live a life of goodness and teach by our examples. Do not fear and know that there is now much Light energy flowing into this world at this time. The old ways will not go away tomorrow, but they are going to fade away as the old Fear based thinkers are replaced by people such as ourselves. I see that you are an American so one thing that you can do to make this world a better place is to register to vote in the upcoming election. That in itself will do a lot to help the rest of the world. It really matters to the rest of us whom you elect asyour next president. It is hard to be here and to observe what is happening. I will include you in my daily prayers.

Throw some love into the wind.

Thank you Bing. Yes, please send me the link. I have tried for some years to find out more about this. But, of course, my resource is Google and isn't much help if you don't know exactly what your looking for. I am registered to vote but had decided not to because of the people who is running. It's like a no win situation or picking the lesser evil. Thank you

I thoroughly enjoyed your post. Sometimes when I post it come out sounding untactful so please do not take offence in my question If your not religious then why is the bible so fascinating to you or is this just one of many fascination of literature ?

Oh no. I have learned along ago to not ask questions if I can not withstand the answer. What you say is truth. That's exactly what the bible is. It's up to the individual who's reading it to determain what it means to them personally. And when preached incorrectly you get what we have now. Men judging men.I "think" (and please forgive me in saying this) the Bibles purpose was to control (even by God) As we can see , it worked beautifully on most but you got that bunch of crazies (lol) that know there is more to it than just a pulpit with a stained glass window behind it with Christ imbedded into it. So much more than a social scene. We, as spiritual beings , don't need a man to stand in front of us to tell us his take on the scriptures meaning or how we should live when I have more empathy in my little finger than he has probably experience in his life time. I'm in charged of my on mind and Journey and if church is not one of my "highway over look attractions" on my journey they that's ok because the Devine is with me. (The Devine being what or whoever name(s) you want to call it) I was told by an old minster lady I have gifts of the Holy Ghost and to hold my head high and use them for the good. Idk about that but I do know people like us do have abilities others don't because if everyone had them the world would be a nicer place to visit....take care

I live in the south so I know exactly what your talking about. I also don't see color either and I wonder when is this going to stop. It has gotten extremely worse in the past 7 years. It seems like the government has split us down the middle again and it's nonsense. Hatred runs deep. If there was something I could do to change the past, I would. I did raise my sons in an non racist involvement but it takes every parent to doing this to change the world.I don't watch the news because of that very reason. I can hardly watch the commercials. So much death, ugliness and greed on earth it's overwhelming. So many hateful people, so many hearts in pain. So sad
