Imagine waking up into a state of complete amnesia—our mind being completely blank with no thoughts whatsoever. Imagine not being able to recognize our being or anything around us. Imagine having no thoughts to associate or recognize anything we would see, hear, feel, taste or smell. Think about this for a moment.Soon our friends and family would be rushing to our side, trying to aid us and talk to us but we would not understand the garbled sounds coming from their mouths. They would surround us, and continually help us to associate our sensory information with meaningful concepts and slowly help us to define our environment. We would begin to recognize ourselves as one like them and develop similar habits and concepts. Our ideas about our world and our place in it would be built upon what we were taught and how we assimilated the information received.
This happens to each and every one of us when we are born. Many of our perspectives are determined by our earliest influences and our environment. As we begin to think for ourselves, our perspectives are nurtured by inherited presumptions and beliefs. These archetypes or models of thinking, as Carl G. Jung explained, reside in the subconscious of every individual and are passed to succeeding generations.
The most deeply embedded thoughts are the religious and historical precepts, which govern our overriding perspectives and can be shown as obstacles to human progress. Our view of the world and our place in it is a part of the collective consciousness directly responsible for shaping the world that we see today.
Many of us are aware that something is wrong. Our confusion is reflected in the world around us. We can ask 10 people to define or explain God and we will get 10 different and oftentimes vague concepts – not answers. Ironically, the vast majority of the world believes in a God we cannot explain. How are we to seek that which we cannot describe? Why must we support the mainstream belief that we cannot imagine who or what God is?
We cannot define our journey if we cannot see the road. The sad part is these vague notions are expressed in the behavior of our everyday lives and the confusion pervades all aspects of our society, which makes them easy to be subconsciously inherited. We’re divided by several religions with different opinions, and so we go on with our lives not really understanding and hoping we will find out when we die. This behavior actually opposes our purpose, hinders our achievements and remains embedded in the collective consciousness.
It’s a vicious cycle that begins with our confusion and the habit to rely on authority, which molds the inherited concepts responsible for impeding our progress. Ingrained concepts of our origins, God and history are nothing more than inherited presumptions fostered by authoritative dogma. The overwhelming presumption that religion is our only link to God and Truth is largely responsible for many of the false precepts that govern our lives.
If we want to expose the inherited presumptions impeding our progress, we need first to define our purpose and our destination. Without either, it would be like getting into our car without knowing where we are going and why. What is our destination? Can’t we imagine a world of collective harmony, free of strife and confusion?
We can provide more meaningful concepts for God, Angels, Noah’s Ark, Lucifer and the Ark of the Covenant. We can discover a place for Atlantis, UFO’s, the Great Pyramid, ancient mythical gods and other ancient mysteries in a new perspective on the human journey – a metaphysical voyage observed in relation to knowledge, power, human nature and the enlightenment of our souls.
It’s time to build a new model for religious and historical thought.
Let’s reveal our misconceptions one truth at a time.
