“Nothing should stand between you and God. No imams, priests, rabbis, or any other custodians of moral or religious leadership. Not spiritual masters and not even your faith. Believe in your values and your rules, but never lord them over others. If you keep breaking other people’s hearts, whatever religious duty you perform is no good. Stay away from all sorts of worship, for they will blur your vision. Let God and only God be your guide. Learn the Truth, my friend, but be careful not to make a fetish out of your truths.“
When I resist with love, I am choosing life.
One of the reasons, I could never join a cult or any religious organization was that I could not accept any authority to tell me how to pursue the knowing of God. I grew up during the socialistic regime in Eastern Europe where Big Brother was supposed to be our guide and ‘brain’. We were to melt into a giant grey melting pot of facelessness and personality-less-ness. We were to believe in and follow every word without hesitation.
I cannot believe in anything without having personal experiences of what I am suggested. God is a living being for me – not a human! – with ‘whom’ I have a personal relationship with. Neither do I suggest that the way I experience God is THE way of experiencing It. One should resist with Love and find one’s own way of connecting.
