Reminder: I am not a writer.
I struggle to express myself in words. Which makes for difficult communication, but I like to think this will improve with practice.
So this is where I am currently:
- Had a great holiday ( working on a separate post for that)
- Have found some really awesome funny people online ( should have their own post)
- Have even managed to find South Africans who seem like minded ( need to confirm that and will get back to you on it)
- Have realised I have a horrible memory ( wrote about 10 posts in my head I have forgotten)
- Learned the value of writing things down in to do lists ( If I don't forget)
- Have started using Twitter again - https://twitter.com/#!/Psycho_Chocolat - (WARNING not for family members or anyone else easily offended)
- Have realised I'm getting used to people being pissed off at me, and it's not so bad.
I think I am actually pretty Happy and content at the moment, although life would be so much simpler if I had 5 more hours a day :)
What I would like to address is the Michael Teachings. I have been asked, ( ...mostly by myself I admit) Where do I put a spiritual teaching, and one viewed as pretty New Aged and Wack-a-doodle into my new found level of Agnostic-Atheism.
Is it double standards to keep pointing out to others the silliness of believing in an invisible Daddy in the sky, while I believe in a disembodied entity from beyond who spread's it's superior teachings via various channels? hmmmm Yes. That would be duplicitous. Or two-faced. Or Double Standards
I don't see the M teachings as that anymore. I think a lot of people do still see it as that, and they are free to interpret it to their liking.
I'm starting to rather see most of it as a body of interesting work that explains a lot about human psychology and social interaction. I believe that it comes from a heightened state of concentration brought about by someone going into a super relaxed trance state while channeling.
I like the tone of it. The fact that none of it is supposed to be purely believed without challenge, (Validate Validate Validate) and I like how it has helped me cope with stress, depression and life in general, and relationships in specific.
I'm not sure how I feel about the afterlife parts of it. Right now I would Love to believe in life after this, but I feel it is mostly improbable. That doesn't prevent me from speculating about it.
This is still a Journey to me. I know that religion can also be used for good, but unfortunately lately I see the bad outweighing the good. Even the M-Teachings have been used for power struggles.
Seems someone always wants to be better than someone else. I'll continue thinking about it, and let you know if it all changes for me again.
