That which you employ as a crutch is what has crippled you in the first place.
They forced us to fight, to kill for their cause. Our faith was used against us. We watched as they slaughtered those among us who refused their commands.
Our armor bore that cursed symbol, and those who rejected it, we bathed in their blood. The steel in our hands as cold as our hearts, the fall from grace was quick.
Our atrocities knew no bounds. What we stole could never be repaid, an unfathomable debt, and our punishment was immortality.
I am haunted by my memories, but I am not that man anymore. Their treachery is all but forgotten, cloaked in notions of peace and humanity. BUT, I remember. And as the veil becomes thinner, exposing their ritualistic deceptions and wickedness, I wait patiently for redemption.
Those who live a life of ignorance can never truly experience bliss in this life or the next, those who continuously seek knowledge have the power to control their own destiny.
Once you succumb to IGNORE – ance , fill your life with institutions that promote it, and surround yourself with others who subscribe to it, you have essentially built a wall around your mind,body and spirit. This metaphorical wall not only keeps people, ideas and knowledge out, it creates a prison that you cannot escape. This is very evident in people who function in absolutes, those who claim to absolutely know the truth or the way. Ultimately, anything that challenges their truth(s) become automatically false.
On the other hand, if your trinity (mind,body,spirit) functions in a state of cognisance or awareness, you are able to remain open-minded and free to explore all possibilities. By not being grounded by absolutes you allow yourself to become elevated and rise above the bullshit.
It’s been explained to me that a simple interpretation of the Christian Gospel is that Christ died for man’s sins and by accepting Christ as your lord and savior you ascend into heaven as he did when you die. The idea is not to perfect your soul or live a life of morality, you accept that you are not perfect and that all of your decision/actions need not to be over analyzed because the lord recognizes you are not perfect and forgives and loves unconditionally. Also, to question and deny that Christ is your savior is a golden ticket to the fires of hell. No wonder the self proclaimed Christian nation of Amerika takes issue with aborting possible “children of Christ” but no issue whatsoever when murdering men, women and children of other nations and cultures for resources and Christian advancement. Quite frankly, I’m surprised Onward Christian Soldiers isn’t the anthem of the U.S. military. And why wouldn’t followers perform acts that are only self-serving to their beliefs, anything that negatively affects others would be forgiven because Jesus is in their heart and because of this they are ultimately performing the lord’s work. Cut the shit, no higher power would support limited access and the suppression of knowledge, demonizing anything that doesn’t fit into the belief system, eternal damnation for non-believers and killing in the name of God. It’s worse than racism and sexism, it’s terrorism on so many levels. So, to my Christian brothers and sisters: May the universe guide you back to the path of embracing humanity, nature, and the interconnection of all things in existence.
