Yesterday I was in a social gathering and religion came into the conversation. A few of the people who were talking asked one another what their religion was. Immediately in my mind I began to consider answers if I was to be asked. That inner reaction occurred because I do not have a standing within religion in any of the religion organizations-thus I would consider myself non religious- but not an atheist or antagonist or spiritualist.
For the longest time I had a resistance to call myself a Destonian because I wanted to steer away from it being referred to as another religion which is def not-however to a person who has never heard of the group "Desteni" hearing the word Destonian will raise questions which I need to be prepared to answer self honestly. So lets investigate the following as to how Desteni differs from your typical organization.
This is my analysis based on what I know and have come across with- I may be wrong or missed a few major statements however the end point stands:
Any form of religion will:
-claim that there is an almighty "God" who keeps a watch on us.
-has a possible savior that will take care of us
-has rituals to honor the "God"
-has a form of heaven/hell scenario with good/bad beings
-form an afterlife
-has a house of God
-promotes fear and love in the same dimension
-has a book of creation that can cause multi interpretation from person to person or religion to religion
-none of them considers a solution because they accept that this is what "God" has created to be
-promotes suffering as a punishment
-creates made up laws that do not comply with the actual physical existence which then if broken (even if they did not make sense)- the person is punished and has to suffer
-promotes pyramid even in heaven or poor-rich-angels archangels and of course king-God
-has an evil-demonic side of why people commit crimes- but no common sense explanation that has to do with the physical reality such as the environment the person grew up in, the reason for their crime, the help they received...and so on
-has objects of attachment such as icons and other "blessed" things that are charged with love, happiness and many blessings.
-has a form of prayer (especially in the events of devastation- which apparently was "God's will")
-creates separation between humanity it is not one religion but many religions (which right here should be a warning sign and should raise many questions to the validity of religion).
And the list can go on but that is all I got for now.
Any form of spirituality will:
-claims there is a higher power that watches over us (Universe)
-promotes love and light in disregard to the whole of existence (calls themselves love beings without realizing that we all together create the world- and the world has not been a peachy-lovable place)
-promotes vibes and energy as the source of life
-chanting and mantras which is another form of prayer
-even if it is a little bit better than religion because it does address some level of self responsibility, the fact that there is a higher power taking care of us- takes away the responsibility of creation- of that which we are capable of creating and accepting self responsibility for it.
-focuses only on positive energy and no evil- which is a delusion because the reality of this world is pretty evil and very negative.
-has many attachments to objects that can be charged with good energy and supposedly bring you luck, love and happiness.
-karma (which is similar to the punishment aspect of religion)
-reincarnation (afterlife effect presenting that depending on your karma- you will be reincarnated into a poor or rich family or even lower- an animal or if you were very spiritual you will become an Ascended Master) which here we are presented with another form of a pyramid.
-philosophy books that fortunately address the EGO but unfortunately promote consciousness and "other selves" to be real.
-has the concept of self realization (which is a plus)
-has meditation- which is a form of a ritual.
And that is all I can come up with for spirituality.
Atheist and Antagonists fall into the "other" category which can't exactly put their fingers on an explanation but do think that the above explanations sound unreasonable or crazy. So there is some sanity in an Atheist or Antagonist. However being on the "other" category still does not offer a practical solution to the evil we have created, nor does it address that we do have actually something to work on.
Evolutionists follow science which gives them a good start within the physical reality however again there is no solution presented, nor does it state that we actually do need to change ourselves to change the evil in this world because according to them it is human nature that we are evil. Why would they think that? Well because there has not been an effort for an actual change to take place where those scientist can observe otherwise. That is where they are limited- to only seeing the past and drawing conclusions from that starting point. Mind you they can't get further than the past because there is no evidence they can find to explain where life came to be- if they agree that there is a further point past the point of evolution than they would have to fall into the religious or spiritual category.
-no God or Universe (as a higher power) to be your savior- The only "God/Universe" is the physical existence which governs existence and the laws of physics/chemistry/mathematics which is in terms life and what we are created of-matter.
-we realize that in order to change who we are as "our evil nature" which is nothing more than a program we must reprogram ourselves to a nature that considers life and what is best for all-another words align ourselves with the physical.
-the tools are simple (self realization-self forgiveness-self correction)
-we realize that change has to happen at the physical level which in time and space is very slow thus we write our process out (in blogging/vlogging) to promote it, to expose it, to assist others who may be in the same place.
-we have taken into account to investigate this world (and still are from every aspect of it-from psychology to economy) as what we have made it to be and from that starting point to see how we can change it into what is best for all.
-we work to deconstruct the mind/psyche to understand why we exists as the "nature of evil" and thus self correct accordingly.
-we have taken into account that life is an expression we are that expression thus self expression is not to be confused with feelings and emotions. Self expression has common sense. Feelings/ Emotions are simple energetic reactions that force us to behave in sick ways and clouds us from being practical beings. Thus we work on erasing reactions that are caused by feelings/emotions so that we can see and express ourselves with clarity and thus enjoy life...as life.
-we propose a practical solution that is based on the observations and "history repeating itself" starting point and we have come to the conclusion that how we use MONEY is the very core of the issue thus that is the point we must redirect to create a world that is best for all. Which is the political aspect of Desteni the Equal Money.
-we promote communication with human beings in a non violent way and in the way of standing up and showing how we can be a living example of change.
-we promote stepping into each other's shoes to see how we can assist each other.
-we have an outlook from behind what the human eye can see which is the dimensions.
-we have the portal which is a cool thing because never before have we had the ability to communicate directly with what is not seen with the physical eye which in itself gives the whole explanation to existence including the religious aspect, the spiritual aspect, the evolutionary aspect as it connects them all into one story line and explains how and why they were created on the first place. So here we have the ability to go beyond and above into seeing the whole picture not just one aspect.
-with the portal we have the ability to know where we actually did come from as life so we are predating so far away from what the human mind can comprehend and realizing that we fucked up as beings long before the solidification of the Universe as what we know it to be today.
-we stand for ending the abuse on Earth towards all life forms.
-we are more than just your random activist group- we are humanity's future.
-we promote self reflection to the reactions you experience within.
So Yes I choose to be with the group that stand for change in all aspects- there is no question about it!
Remember at the end of the day we collectively create this world (on an individual scale and global scale) with our actions and decisions so we need to work as a one team-not on separate teams.
We only we can punish ourselves by not aligning with the physical existence and suffering the consequences we create for ourselves as the outflow of poor planning and NOT taking care of each other, living in separation from each other and competition which causes further separation from ourselves and life.
I highly recommend "The Secret History of the Universe" series that are interviews through the portal explaining our origin point, our evolution development from the molecular level and eventual divergence from "life" as we thought ourselves to be separate from that matter and how our search for our origin began- (here I am talking about a time line way before human/animal/plant/Earth life you know...I mean we are taken all the way before the existence of the Universe as we know it to be today).
