Choosing Beliefs That Unite Humanity

The more we remember to love ourselves/other soul brothers and sisters/God unconditionally, the less we become concerned with what society wants us to say, expects us to do, and wishes us to be.

We are all unique and perfect creations/Souls of the Divine Love Energy/God who are by nature Unconditional Love, Peace, Joy, Truth, Abundance and Freedom.

Most of us have probably experienced a family member, friend, neighbor, or even a stranger, approach us in order to make an attempt to convince us to join their religious organization or some other belief system. Depending on how we choose to perceive that type of situation, it could be a negative experience or a positive one.
I used to get frustrated or annoyed when certain people would either aggressively, or even gently, try to convert me to their religions, claiming that theirs is the true or better religion. But then I understood that they had good intentions…they just wanted to “save” or “rescue” me from going to a place called hell, and being condemned by God for eternity.
However, their words and actions did not stem from gentle, unconditional love; but rather, from much fear. Because any form of manipulation, threats and/or control, even the ones disguised as unconditional love, all stem from fear.
For example, the following statements, not necessarily expressed verbatim, are the basic statements that are used to try to convince people to join certain religious organizations:
  • “If you do these things, and/or believe my superior religion, you can go to a place called heaven.”
  • “If you do these things, and/or don’t believe in my religion, you’re going to hell.”

As humanity, we should say and do loving things because it benefits all, and because it’s our true nature, not just because there’s a reward at the end called heaven. We have the ability to create heaven on earth through loving all of humanity, and sharing our abundant resources that society claims that we lack.

Most of our problems in society as a whole would diminish, if not vanish, if we could put forth the effort of no longer treating one another as different and separate, but as soul brothers and sisters of a God who doesn’t discriminate who He loves unconditionally.

Those who truly represent unconditional love (which God of ALL souls is) have no need or desire to instill fear into the hearts of those merely searching for pure love. That’s what I love about spirituality. It’s not about judgment and who’s better than the other. It embraces ALL.

If God sends me to hell just because I refuse to believe that very loving souls such as the Dalai Lama and Gandhi are going to hell or are already in hell, like some religions claim, then so be it. Why would I choose to believe in such a God anyway? However, I intuitively know that the God I believe in, the God of Spirituality, not only loves ALL souls unconditionally, but also fully supports my faith.

An Almighty, All-Powerful & All-Loving God doesn’t have a need or desire to judge, discriminate, condemn, be jealous, be angry, and all the other negative characteristics (that stem from fear) that mankind has labeled Him with for their convenience. Human beings act from fear, but God acts from pure unconditional love, because that’s who God Is.

Some family members and friends may initially shun us for choosing our own beliefs, but as long as we remain true to ourselves and our own deep beliefs, that’s all that matters. As long as we are one with God/our Higher Self/our soul, nothing else matters. What’s interesting, is that some family members and friends return to our lives when least expected, because they follow their hearts.

Throughout my life, I’ve met a handful of religious people who not only talked the talk, but also walked the walk…like Jesus did. Actions speak volumes, and they showed through their very loving and non-judgmental words and actions that they truly represented God’s unconditional love. I experienced God in them; they were angelic human beings. I believe Joel Osteen is one of these blessings to humanity.

Then, there were others who showed that they could memorize and quote the bible like the back of their hands, preach like there was no tomorrow, continuously have a need to mention that they are “Christians,” and express how they always pray for all the unfortunate ones who don’t embrace their religions, and/or brag about all their weekly church attendances and charity work that they’ve accomplished; but yet, they didn’t move me in any way, shape or form.

Instead, they reminded me (when I was more judgmental in the past) of those who blew their trumpets out in public so that the world could see their “goodness.” Back in the day, Jesus saw through the masks…the facades. God knows our hearts, regardless of who we say we are to the world.

I’ve even experienced the so-called “good” and “bad” in other religions. My mother claimed to be Buddhist, but I’ve learned over time that her past abusive words and actions had nothing to do with Buddhism; because true Buddhists don’t believe in violence, and they strongly believe in compassion.

So I came to a realization, with the help of wisdom shared by spiritual teachers, that it doesn’t matter what labels we have in our belief systems. There’s the “good” and “bad” in all religions and other belief systems. What matters most is how we live as beings who love unconditionally…just as God and highly evolved spiritual beings like Jesus, the Dalai Lama and Gandhi love/loved.

The truth is, we’re all just trying to make sense of ourselves, others, our beliefs and our world…just human beings trying to survive and be happy. We’re all in the process of growing, learning, experiencing and remembering who we truly are (souls of God).

In order to experience all the “good” in life, we need the opposites to help define the good, because if everything and everyone was good all the time, “good” would surely lose its meaning and value.

So instead of resisting, rejecting, and/or cursing darkness (i.e., the “bad”) and fear (e.g., our differences), we should welcome them into our space and BE the bright Light that enlightens darkness and BE the Love energy that raises fear’s low-frequency energy.

As Neale Donald Walsch put it, “What we resist, persists.” And without darkness and fear, we would not be able to experience in the physical who we truly are. The more we remember to understand and embrace the polarities of life, the more we will remember that there is only unity…oneness.

What’s more inspiring, empowering and enlightening than helping to transform a so-called “bad” person into a “good” person, helping a hopeless person to have hope again, and to give one in need the abundance of love and “stuff” that we already have? Deep down, we intuitively know that this is true happiness.

We all have that magnificent power…to help heal the world from darkness and fear, and to help one another remember who we truly are…that we have the power to rise above the “negative” energy since we are ultimately the highly vibrating positive energy of unconditional love.

I realize I’m still in the process of growing as a soul, and I would love to one day become a highly evolved spiritual being who truly loves myself/other souls/God unconditionally.
Until then, I will continue to experience life to the best of my abilities, make my interesting observations, reflect, gain insight, remember more and more of who I truly am through myself and others, and just BE Love, Peace, Joy, Truth, Abundance, and Freedom.

A good friend of mine from high school posted the following message on Facebook from the Dalai Lama…:
“I really feel that some people neglect and overlook compassion because they associate it with religion. Of course, everyone is free to choose whether they pay religion any regard, but to neglect compassion is a mistake because it is the source of our own well-being.” Dalai Lama

…and I shared her post and added the following message:
This is true. Thanks for sharing Nicky. When we first make an effort to UNDERSTAND why we say or do things to ourselves and each other that stem from low-energy states (such as sadness, frustration, jealousy, resentment, anger, hatred, and rage that ultimately stems from FEAR, the lowest frequency of energy), then we can feel COMPASSION for us and others as to why we behaved that way, which can then lead to FORGIVENESS, and eventually to UNCONDITIONAL LOVE (the way God loves ALL souls, and the way highly evolved spiritual beings such as Jesus, the Dalai Lama, Gandhi, etc. love/d humanity as well).
By accepting one another without judgment, and choosing not to believe that one is better or superior over another, we can grow and unite as humanity rather than be SEPARATE as groups, races, colors, religions, countries, etc.
Love energy is our true nature (our souls, part of God energy), and compassion is the highest frequency of love energy because it takes a DEEP love to be willing to understand, have compassion for, forgive and unconditionally love someone who is “stuck” or suffering from darkness and fear.
It’s easy to accept and/or love people who we can connect with and who are lovable; however, to accept, help, embrace and/or love the so-called “different,” the “ugly,” the “weird,” the “abnormal,” the “ignorant,” the “homeless,” the “bad,” and the “evil” the way God and highly evolved spiritual beings (like Jesus) love, is quite a challenge…but definitely doable, because we are all part of the Divine Being…We Are All One.
Our Unconditional Love for one another will have a ripple effect beyond our imagination. Thank you God for Being through us so that others can see You through us and remember who they truly are, and thank you for helping us to see others through the eyes of God.
