Belief Systems

 

If you’re not willing to question your own beliefs, you remain the warden of your own prison. 

Q: You are continually referring to the evils of belief systems. What belief systems are you talking about?

A: All belief systems. Political, Religious, reality, etc. it doesn’t matter. Let’s look at the two biggest a little closer.

The belief system of politics. Politics is simply an idea. An idea we have been taught we need and is there for our benefit. We have been taught all our lives that politics matters and our type of political system is best. A two party system, multi-party system, socialism, fascism, communism, ect.. Whatever the political system, politics is not a system that exists to help or benefit you. Politics exists to control you. Politics exists for benefit of political leaders. No other reason. The benefits of political governments goes to the representatives of the political belief system. Political ideals have been at the root of many of the conflicts throughout history, have separated us from each other, and has been instrumental in instilling fear and hatred in all of us. 

The belief system pf Religions.  Religion is simply an idea. An idea we have been taught we need and is there for our benefit. We have been taught all our lives that religion matters and our type of religious system is best. Catholic, Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Mormon, Protestant,  Lutheran  etc.. Whatever the religious system, religion is not a system that exists to help or benefit you. Religion exists to control you. Religion exists for the benefit of religious leaders. No other reason. The benefits of religious institutions goes to the representatives of the religious belief system. Religious ideals have been at the root of many of the conflicts throughout history, have separated us from each other, and has been instrumental in instilling fear and hatred in all of us.

Can you see the similarities? I’m am not saying we can govern ourselves. We are not capable of rational and logical thinking because of our egos. I’m also not saying God doesn’t exist. I’m saying God exists inside all of us, not in some edifice we have to pay homage to. And, if God created everything, including itself, why would God have a human trait like ego? Ego requires others to worship it. Worship is purely an egotistical requirement. I would think we would have been given God-like traits instead if God having human-like traits.
