They’ve gotten too big! – I mean Jesus, Buddha and Mohammed – like a succession of Macy’s Day Parade balloons. But how did this happen since, at one time, they were human beings just like us? Continuous attention by large numbers of people over a long period of time accomplished it. Hundreds of millions of minds and hearts focused on a few individuals over millennia and, eventually, you’ll create something that’s no longer human – just giant light projections bouncing off the dark insides of people’s heads. The psychic wattage has just been enormous.
In turning attention back to ourselves, we seem so small in comparison. All three of these people repeatedly told us that they were just human beings. But that made no difference once they physically left us – because institution-building in each case had gotten well underway.
So how can we get them back down to earth without seeming disrespectful? We’re certainly thankful for their existence – for their time with us – it was a good thing. But such deep and largely unreflective worship has gotten us diverted from our duty to respect ourselves, as well as being a major distraction from God – who lives in our own hearts.
We’ve been on the way a long time now, and we’re finally ready to arrive!
We’ll begin by engaging with God and our true selves directly – not with a giant projection. Then, we’ll open up the colorful gift of joy secretly placed in our hearts – that little present God provided us at birth – to be opened only on the day we wake up spiritually.
This present was not one given to Jesus, Buddha, or Mohammed – because they’ve already opened their own special gifts –
No, this present was given solely to us –
A personal joy – straight from God!
