Superiority is not a word to describe a religion

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
ABOVE OTHERS.

NO GROUP HAS THE
ANSWERS.

NO GROUP IS CLOSER TO SPIRIT
THAN ANY OTHER.

NO GROUP SPEAKS
FOR SPIRIT.

SPIRIT IS FOR ALL
= EQUALLY =

SPIRIT IS ALL-COME-TO-ME-JUSTLY!
Come justly without harm
To any others.

Intangible Reality, Part 2

intangible reality

Spiritual practice, whether alone or with a group, can be conducive to interaction with intangible reality. Connecting to wisdom internal enables connection to reality beyond.

Internal wisdom is supplied by the soul, and thoughts channeled through soulful evaluation reflect spiritual connection. The physical actions that accompany spiritual practices extend the effects of the connection. The emotional depth of the concentration on spiritual connection can invigorate the connection. The intellectual quest to fathom the intangible invites contentment. Nourishment of the desire to have impact is attained.

When group worship is sincerely performed, the group can enrich each individual. When group worship is performed perfunctorily, the experience can alienate or bore. When group worship is forced, the experience can be blocked inwardly or can be traumatic.

Group worship that is spontaneous sometimes enriches, but sometimes incites. Group workship that decries other groups is worship misguided. No group has access to divine revelation over any other group. No group!

Spiritual connection, the link to intangible reality, is the historical practice for tying human endeavor to energy of the expanse.
