Many paths of elevation are available and desirable for reaching connection with God.
Solitary prayer unites divinity with creation for the moments the connection is true. Prayer in grouped agreement unites divinity with creation for elevated connection when the connection is sincere. Both solitary prayer and grouped prayer are paths to God.
Grouped prayer that is developed into set pronouncements with set movements removes creativity in building spiritual connection, but encourages human connection. Repetition of “scripts” and routine observances enable feelings of human connection that transcend death. The connection can bind the living with the dead who preceded them and bind the living with future generations.
Grouped prayer connects the people who accept the group’s observances and concept of divinity. Acceptance offers approach to God, scripts that guide the approach, and vision to ponder Almighty, the majestic energy that connects all.
Sincere dedication to life lived with awareness of connection to God is realistic. The connection focuses and elevates daily living.
Dedication to the grouped approach to God—to a religion—is dedication missing the meaning. Religion is an access way to connection to God, not the destination. Elevating the religion rather than the divine connection disconnects the people from God.
Religions are approaches, they are not possessions. They do not need to be compared or debated.
Superiority is not a word to describe a religion. No religion that is based on the connection with God is better than any other. Feeling superior because of religious affiliation lessens the beauty of the religion.
As God shares in the book, Faith— A Wisdom Poem Sharing Spiritual Connection:
NO ONE GROUP HAS ACCESS
NO GROUP HAS THE
NO GROUP IS CLOSER TO SPIRIT
THAN ANY OTHER.
NO GROUP SPEAKS
SPIRIT IS FOR ALL
= EQUALLY =
SPIRIT IS ALL-COME-TO-ME-JUSTLY!
Come justly without harm
To any others.
