"The trouble with the world is not that people know too little, but that they know so many things that ain't so."
- Mark Twain
"Church stands for gathering, and the original churches were not houses of worship. They were houses of learning where men and women would get together to share and discuss knowledge while searching for a correct understanding of what they knew. Because of that, even though the institution of religion must be eradicated, one should not burn down churches, synagogues, and mosques. They are to be once again used by the community as gathering places where people will return to worshiping knowledge and reason instead of imaginary gods.
Some consider religion, and rightfully so, a branch of the entertainment industry. Among others, both preachers and entertainers put on an act by pretending to be something they are not. They both use light, sound, costumes, makeup, both work with a script, and in many instances they both get paid big money for doing that. No doubts about it, what you see on stage during a church revival is an act, and while according to Matthew 10:8 Jesus tells his disciples “Freely you have received; freely give,” to watch the show put on by Joel Osteen, Benny Hinn, Franklin Graham, or Creflo Dollar, to name only a few among the most known Bible-toting stage actors, you must buy a ticket. Someone has even written a book called Performing the Word: Preaching as Theater. It glorifies the vaudevillian approach to ministering, an approach that justifies the demand by many among the population of the planet that churches and preachers pay taxes like all the other for-profit institutions and entertainers. (See “20 Richest Pastors in the World In 2019," YouTube, running time 16 minutes 26 seconds.) The reason why our government does not collect taxes from them is that our government needs them to help it control the masses.
Be it land, buildings, art, or libraries, everything own by churches was not earned and is the property of the people. In that respect it is for the congregation, and not for the religious hierarchy to choose the topics of conversation in churches, especially when the priest’s salary comes from money donated by the people that make the congregation. Unlike school and higher education teachers who receive an academic education in a specific field of human interest, at the seminary or at religious universities the priests are taught how to make believers believe the irrational belief they preach is absolute truth. In the parts of the world where houses of worship are still subsidized by the state, in many instances the sacerdotal class is openly at the service of the government and play the political game to its advantage and to the advantage of officials that pass laws allowing for money to be diverted from public funds to the bank accounts of religious institutions.
In accord with the request by Jesus that “Freely you have received; freely give,” in the original non-religious Gnostic churches, knowledge was, indeed, shared freely with everyone. The free-knowledge concept was meant to foster civilization advancement and it is still valid today, it will always be, and yet most governments are asking young men and women, the future of civilization Earth to pay significant tuition fees to get an education that on occasion consists of false or outdated information, as is the case with the teaching of the theory of evolution in colleges and universities as fact. Receiving an education is something that benefits not just our young men and women but also civilization Earth, which is why education should be free. Churches that make millions of tax-free dollars and were allowed to set shop on every college and university campus in the country preach from a book implying that seeking knowledge is a sin and calls ignorance of our spiritual nature a blessing. Being present on colleges campuses all over America despite that, is another thing revealing that religious institutions have been always used by those at the controls of civilization Earth as an instrument of perception manipulation, something that makes the people of the planet live their lives in a way that benefits the status quo. For, much to one’s surprise, we live the way we perceive reality, and the manipulators, our governments included, are aware of that.
Schools and universities are to expose students to everything we know about the universe, natural law, about our true history, the nature of being human, and the purpose of life, as well as about our future projects and objectives as a civilization. Instead of pretending we have answers we do not actually have, schools must make the new generation aware of our current cognitive limits as a civilization. This way young men and women will look for the answers we do not have yet. There should be no need for politicians with an agenda to push for laws allowing for the use of critical thinking in schools, for questioning the academic authority of a few, or for challenging absurd assumptions presented to the student body as scientific fact. This is normal human behavior associated with social rules deriving from our natural rights and common sense. “Educate and inform the whole mass of the people... They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty,” wrote Thomas Jefferson in a letter sent from Paris to Uriah Forrest on December 31, 1787. This is not exactly what we have going on these days in America and all over the world, and the question is how did we end up in this situation?
Some feel uncomfortable, even afraid when invited to enter uncharted territories and worlds beyond their comfortable belief. Positive change could not happen without us traveling beyond our current cognitive limits. Fear is a natural feeling, and one should never pretend it is not there if that happens. As someone once said, acknowledging fear is the beginning of conquering it. One must not allow his or her spirit to be dominated and controlled by fear, though, for fear is what makes people act and react the way someone wants them to act and react. This was why we were once told, “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” Fear inhibits our instinctual inclination toward acting in harmony with the law that governs the universe. Fear deprives us of our natural impulse to change a certain state of affair that is out of sync with the frequency of honesty and truth. Change that benefits the greater good could not happen without challenging the status quo, the current mentality, the current understanding of reality and the system founded on that. To that end, we could not solve any of the real problems our civilization has been confronted for thousands of years with unless we first collectively acknowledge those real problems with our civilization.
Freedom of expression must be combined with respect for known fact and a rational interpretation of it, the recipe for experiencing life within a healthy social environment. In line with that no one single person or organization is the owner of the information encrypted into the matrix of the universe. All of us are to uncover and correctly understand that, and then use it for the benefit of everyone.
The only evolution human beings have experienced and are ever going to experience is in the way they understand reality. By extension, personal cognitive growth generates an increased collective awareness about the spiritual aspect of being human and of everything else. This way we collectively develop a better understanding of the purpose of our being here and a better, as in a more efficient way of experiencing the earth plane. When a significant number of the inhabitants of the planet share a correct understanding of what we know when it comes to the laws of the seen and unseen that govern the universe, that generates harmony not just in one country, not just for one people, but in the way we exist as a global community. That is the reason why disrespectful of his or her race or social status, every inhabitant of the planet must be encouraged in schools and through all available means to seek to experience personal cognitive and consciousness awareness growth. Religion and scientific materialism inhibit that. To make this possible, leaders of the community should be chosen not through popular vote but by and from among those who have an elevated understanding of what we know. They too could not efficiently govern, though, if the masses continue to be kept poor in spirit, as both religious institutions and a materialist academia relying blindly on empiricism do. To that end, we will have to replace the current political system of government with a merit one that in time should become a global entity. And since the success of Project Earth depends on that, we must create a universal education program that benefits every single member of the generations to come.
When we live our lives based on a falsification of universal truth, we act in disaccord with the harmonic vibrations of the principles behind the existence of the universe and the result of that is dis-harmony. If not addressed, dis-harmony tends to exacerbate into a dis-aster. The sages of the old explained the Earth-human’s predicaments as being the result of his inability to hear the music of the spheres, to "see" with the Eye of his mind the messages carried by those cosmic energies. If the Earth people are kept blind of the messages carried by energies constantly emanating from the Source and revealed to them thought the influences exerted by the asters, that results in an existential dis-aster.
When attuned to the energies of the spiritual, some call it the metaphysical, we can create together amazing technologies that make us look like Gods in the eyes of the uninitiated. More efficient technologies allow us to better protect the planet’s ability to sustain life. “Undoubtedly,” writes the Maya Elder Carlos Barrios in The Book of Destiny, “the greatest legacy the Mayan sage left us was their method of handling energies. The technical ability to clearly see the convergence of cosmic and terrestrial currents is used by Elders and wise men.” Nikola Tesla’s message to the scientific community and to everyone else one hundred years ago was, “The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence." The more accurate our understanding of this aspect of reality, the more in tune our creative spirit is with Mother Nature and with universal order and less fearful we are of the unknown.
Last but not the least when peace and harmony is established within our self the world becomes a reflection of that. As told in one of the Edgar Cayce readings, “peace must begin within self before there may be the activity or the application of self in such a manner as to bring peace in thy own household, in thine own heart, in thine own vicinity, in thine own state or nation.” (Reading 3976-28) It comes as no surprise to realize this is perfectly aligned with what we were once told by friends and relatives in high places: “You must learn to end the wars in your world by ending them in your mind.” (Pleiadian Times)
The same ancestral friends of ours in high places have told us that those who sought to keep the Earth-human blind of the blunders associated with his creation and this way unaware of his true potential have made him operate at the lower frequency of belief and did everything possible to cause him to lose contact with high origin. With the help of messengers initiated by the bringers of light into liberating knowledge, against the Custodial authorities’ wishes, many among the Earth-humans have been able to regain awareness of their once lost ability to have control, as spirit energy, over the choices they make and this way over how they individually and collectively experience the current life cycle. This way they realized it stays within their powers to put an end to living according to belief and to a materialist reductionist explanation of the nature and the purpose of life. These days they are no longer trapped within a manipulated perception of reality, for, as once promised, the truth has set them free."
