Religion Post Gizmo

Over the past few days I've been thinking of what Religion will look like in the future when Entheogenic technologies will redefine humankind's relationship with Nature's Eternity. So much of commercial religion these days seems to focus on what divides us.

It is said that Buddhists, for example, don't believe in God. This is true in the sense that Christians envision someone sitting on a throne somewhere in "Heaven." This is not to say that they don't believe in Eternity, they just don't attach a human like entity to it.

It is also said that Hindus believe in many gods. This is also a misconception. In Hinduism, Brahma is God the One, but in essence God is a Trinity: Brahma, the Generator, Visnu, the Operator and Shiva, the Destroyer. However, one thing in common with the Great Faiths of the world, is they recognize that we are all part of an Eternal process that seems to know where it's going regardless of our place in it. All proclaim Love to be the highest value.

We stand in this time on a great threshold, similar in many respects to when our ancient ancestors began using the Entheogenic plants that grow throughout the world, and began laying the foundations of Civilizations through the power of their expanded minds.

A huge Awakening on a Planetary scale is happening around us.
I look forward to the day when every house of worship is filled with folk who are fully aware of their Eternal Selves, and where Religion flourishes in focused Compassion , Justice and Mercy. I'll say it again. Heaven on Earth is merely a global change in perspective, and that change is happening, all around us, now.
