Religion -- The Founders

An Overview of the Most Common Systems of Thought on Earth and How the Earth Changes Relate to Each Discipline


Every major religion has a set of beliefs about what is happening and about to happen on planet Earth. The Christians have the “rapture”, which is a distorted perception of the ascension. Some religions talk about the “promised land” or the “land of milk and honey.” Visionaries in your holy books are given a lot of credence and are worshipped and revered and thought to have the absolute truth.

In some of your religious mythology, you have what is called the “New Jerusalem” or holy city that is prophesied to descend upon the Earth, taking the chosen ones into a heavenly state.

Some of these prophecies are describing states of consciousness, while others are describing the intervention of various ETs and ascended master groups in the affairs of Earth. In our next section, we will go into more detail regarding the levels of intervention taking place on your world and how these interventions have been misinterpreted. Some of the interventions are part of the Seventh Divine Dispensation and some are not. It is essential that souls learn to differentiate and discern between true Divine Dispensation-based intervention, and the over-zealous efforts of unenlightened ETs who are playing a Messiah role.

There are humans waiting to be beamed aboard spaceships. Some have put their lives on hold and are simply sitting around waiting to be rescued from their uncomfortable and unsatisfying lives. Except in rare cases where it is in the highest and best interests of the soul, there will not be any mass evacuations in the days to come upon Earth. There are expected to be large areas of the Earth that will remain relatively safe and stable during the height of the Earth changes. Enlightened souls will be directed as to where to go and what to do during those time periods. Quieting the mind, healing the psychological self, and learning how to create metaphysically will all play a part in the soul's ability to discern and distinguish the true voice of inner guidance from the distorted perceptions of the ego and the egotistical ETs that think they are saving humanity.

This channel and his primary spirit guide have explored and expounded on the subject of ET intervention numerous times already and so we will not say anything further on this point until the next section. Throughout this treatise, we may refer to certain religious teachings and images in order to further clarify the religious perceptions regarding the Earth changes.

What Happens When the Ego Controls Religion

Every religion has a grain (or perhaps a few grains) of truth. You have most likely heard this quote within your metaphysical organizations. In a way, it does not really matter which religion is being followed. They all have a thread of truth that runs through them, and they all have a lot of distortion of basic truths. This distortion leads to adherence to distorted belief systems.

Some of the most popular religions have been purposely altered in order to enslave as many minds as possible by introducing ideas that hold back the soul growth of believers. For example, the introduction of guilt and sin into the teachings of Christianity has created a blend of truth and fiction that is designed to keep follows of the Christian religions forever seeking and not finding truth.

The egotistical leaders of the various religions have played upon the ignorance of the masses in order to retain and consolidate their power and control. Sometimes this is done intentionally and maliciously, but more often than not, those who are leading the various religions have simply fallen into the trap of the ego and are naively believing they are following the “word of God” as they send soldiers into battle and subject women and children to the latest killing machines and “smart” bombs.

They are convinced that anyone who does not believe as they do is the “enemy” and deserves to be destroyed. They are hypnotized into believing that God must somehow triumph over evil and that light must be victorious over darkness. Such belief systems merely perpetuate identification with the realms of duality and prevent the soul from being able to break free of the illusions inherent within the worlds of maya (the lower four dimensions).

The contradictions evident within such actions and behavior should be obvious to anyone that is not completely mesmerized by the conflicting teachings being given through the major religions. It is perplexing to us in the higher realms when we see your holy books filled with slogans such as “Love one another” and “Bless your enemies,” and then witness the relentless violence perpetrated in the name of God. Some of your teachers say that religion has killed more people than anything else in your history. We are inclined to agree, based on our observations.

Some of the wars that have happened upon your Earth are understandable, particularly if they involve disputes over land and so-called “scarce” resources. While we recognize the unlimited abundance and infinite space of the Creator's universe, we also understand that most of you have not been able to break out of the belief in scarcity, and so those who go to war over land disputes are merely playing out the dictates of their beliefs. However, the killing that goes on in the name of a “just and loving God,” is quite another matter. Those same souls that say the Bible is the “word of God,” are blatantly defying the word of God and going against the commandments contained therein, such as “Thou shalt not kill.”

In perusing your holy books, and especially the Christian Bible, we note that the commandments are rather specific (regardless of whether or not they are in alignment with God's Will). For example, it does not say, “Thou shalt not kill, except on Tuesdays, or except when the enemy believes in Allah or Jehovah instead of Jesus Christ.” Yet every day upon your world, another bomb goes off as a testament to the belief, “My God is better than your God.”

The Opiate of the Masses

Our perception of what is taking place here closely mirrors what one of your pop culture icons said. “Religion is the opiate of the masses.” In this case, the beliefs of fundamentalist religion are used to lull the unsuspecting mind into a false sense that it is okay to rain death and destruction down upon your fellow citizens as long as you attribute it to God's Will. Somewhere, the mind justifies this by altering the original teachings. “God is loving and just, but gets angry sometimes and smites the sinners.”

It is true that God gets angry, because you get angry and you are a part of God. However, in the very highest of dimensions, in what your teachers call the “God worlds,” there is an immense unconditional love that permeates all things. There is an aspect of the Godhead that is perfect, unchanging, eternal love, forever changeless and forever beyond all time and space. As you move out of your dualistic perception and transcend the lower four dimensions of time and space, you will come to realize the truth that exists beyond all of the illusions of your everyday world.

Religion, as it is practiced by most of humanity, creates a split in the psyche between the part that wants to do good, and the part that represents the unhealed “shadow self.” The belief in sin and guilt simply justifies the actions of the shadow self, without doing anything significant to heal it. If you believe you are a miserable sinner, then you will most likely go on killing in the name of God and justifying it. You then expect to be punished by God and begin looking forward to going to hell and suffering for eternity, and so you react to this insane belief by becoming hedonistic and attempting to drown yourself in sensory pleasures in order to avoid the inevitable doom awaiting you.

We observe this see-sawing effect between those who attempt to lead righteous, “God-fearing” lives, and those who surround themselves with all manner of distraction, in the name of pleasure and materiality, in order to avoid the certain demise of the soul when comes the judgment day.

The biggest problem with religion as it exists on Earth today, is that it requires adhering to a set of beliefs and principles that are not in alignment with natural Divine Law. The church does not encourage souls to question the motives behind religion. You are taught to have blind faith in those that administer the teachings, such as the ministers and priests, and to faithfully practice your rosary and confess your sins, in the hope that maybe God will grant you the peace of Heaven instead of the misery of hell.

One of your teachers rightly pointed out that “Hell is the state of consciousness that arises when you believe this stuff.” Since most of you reading this have renounced your religious upbringing and are embracing higher truths, we will not continue to “preach to the converted,” but we do wish to offer a few suggestions when encountering deeply religious people as you move along the path of ascension.

How to Deal with Religious People

Most of you know someone that could be classified as a “fundamentalist” in some religion. Souls with a fundamentalist viewpoint tend to only accept aspects of reality that fit in with their narrow and limited concepts of God and the Creation.

Just because a soul is trapped in a narrow set of beliefs does not automatically mean that such a soul cannot ascend or at least move into fourth density. Often there is common ground between your experience and that of the fundamentalist. The problem is the clinging to a particular belief system, not necessarily the belief system itself. Some of you probably have a lot in common with Christian fundamentalists, for example, though your approach is quite different. Both you and the fundamentalist can tune into the presence of Christ consciousness and ask God to help you move forward in your lives. If you keep your own judgment out of the equation and merely seek to understand and unconditionally love the fundamentalist, he or she is more likely to be open and receptive to the messages of spirit coming through you. Spirit will use the language that the soul feels most comfortable with. A Christian being visited by a higher density entity will often see the entity shrouded in images of a Christian nature, while a Buddhist might see the entity taking on the characteristics of Buddha.

If the fundamentalist is able to let go of judgment and a rigid definition of reality, he or she is perfectly capable of making it through the transition. Your ability to unconditionally love the fundamentalist will do far more than trying to convince him or her of anything. Also, avoiding the fundamentalist may not be the highest option. If you have attracted one into your life, as a family member or business associate, there is a reason. Perhaps on some level the fundamentalist wants someone to help him let go of his rigidity and open more fully to spirit, and just maybe you are the one to fulfill that role.

Be careful, however, not to fall into the ego trap of trying to force someone to “see the light.” Also, do not assume you are more aware than the fundamentalist, or more enlightened. Enlightened souls see everyone as an expression of God, just as we do. We do not see any soul in Creation as less than us or not as good as us. The fundamentalist is just as spiritual as you are, even if he is not as aware of this as you. Bless him, pray for him, and see him being lifted into God's Limitless Light, Love and Compassion.
