113. About earthly religions and human spiritual evolution


ABOUT METAPHYSICAL  SYSTEMS, EARTHLY RELIGIONS AND SPEED OF PLANETARY CIVILIZATIONS  EVOLUTION
NON-THEISTIC   AND HUMAN BUT METAPHYSICAL  EXISTENTIALISM.
IS THERE METAPHYSICAL AND SPIRITUAL COLLECTIVE  DIRECT  DEMOCRACY?

 
In below we refer mainly to the four major religions, Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist that are monotheistic. The ancient Greek religion of 12-gods is unique and is rather a metaphysical oligarchy. Also the discussion below is under the premise that it is true that there are metaphysical worlds.


The fact that religions are a model, relative to the involved authority and power , of metaphysical monarchy or oligarchy, contributes to justify respective models of cosmic-social power, ie monarchy and  oligarchy (and even financial oligarchy). And so push or to alienate the human consciousness to  become submissive and enslaved by monarchy oligarchy models of social power. And this is know that it has happened in the past. 


One could say that the time series is perhaps reverse. Ie First there was such a monarchy 
and oligarchy model of power in societies and afterwards  these religions simulated it, and
 tried to create a superior quality metaphysical monarchy or  oligarchy that will raise the 
level and quality of the corresponding social  monarchy or oligarchy. And partly perhaps this 
 has indeed  really happened.


But if already from ancient Greece there were social models of direct participatory democracy, 
they should also exist  religions to suggest metaphysical and spiritual direct and participatory 
democracy. Even if today the accepted model of social power is the representative  democracy, 
any small groups of superior planetary beings which  is organized as monarchy or oligarchy, and 
which group  wants to have universal and  significant influence on humanity,  inevitably 
such a group would  act as spiritual and metaphysical obstacle for the evolution for the 
masses of humanity  both for the social-cultural development of and for the collective 
metaphysical psychic  development. And of course the reason is humanity needs a model of
power which is not  monarchy or oligarchy but (direct or participative) democracy. If on the other
 hand such a small group of superior existences want simply to exist for their own sake, and 
not play  a dominant role in humanity then there is no such a danger. 

If such superior planetary existences in the metaphysical worlds are waiting for humanity, to establish a planetary direct or participatory Human Democracy and afterwards promote similar spiritual and metaphysical models in other words metaphysical and spiritual democracy (under the premise that it is true that the are metaphysical worlds) then they simply will be late, and confirm that the act backward and ex post to human evolution .

Unfortunately although some religions initiated as liberation movements, it is well known that most of them  resulted as means of trapping the majority of the individuals and contributing to them being kind of prey or vassals of social elite power. It is only to a small minority of individuals that the earthly religions have had a truly benevolent influence.
Some of the religions initiated like liberation movement. For example the Jewish religion in as the book of old testament , initiated as a liberation of slaves of the Egyptian Social system. And even the Christian religion was a relevant to the existence of slaves in the Roman Empire; The early Christians were proud to call them slaves of the God, of Jesus-Christ, instead of slaves of the Emperor of Rome. But with the passage of time centuries later , the Jewish without their country anymore resulted to a kind of vassals of the social power of various nations. (A fact that led them seek power through the money). And the Christians, acquired an attitude of subordination and being vassals , suitable to the social power of the church, which was in close contact and parallel to the political and military social power. Therefore a psychological and spiritual attitude suitable for subordination to the authorities of the social power. There are similar realizations that can be stated about Buddhism and other religions too.
Most of the religions create a kind of spiritual and moral alienation of the human individuals from their true inner existence. Similar to how the power of money creates alienation in the labor in this civilization. By believing , devoting or adoring a charismatic or not religious leader, or idol the individual is deprived by his natural attention and concentration to his/her inner spiritual existence, and existential self-responsibility, and equal mutual respect of the inner spiritual divine existence of the other fellows in his civilization. For example in Christianity the spiritual dependence of a father-God, creates obviously an non matured  spiritual childishness.  Religions may deprive society and individuals from their Spiritual and Moral Freedom. Moral Virtues and Spirituality should not be monopolized by the religions. The individual should realize that his evolution passes from finding the divinity and godliness inside him and respecting his/her other fellows in the society for their inner godliness and spirituality.

Of course it is true that there are earthly planetary existences in various orders of higher frequencies realities that are more evolved, and that may serve as example and the inner contact with them may be a precious energizing. But they can be also depriving precious energy and power and self-responsibility instead of giving. And in no way they ate the "The One Creator of the World" or the "The One Creator of the Human Beings"! Such conceptions,  are theistic misconceptions, accidental or with hidden purpose. In fact there is not "The one Creator of the world" or "The One creator of the Human Beings" or "The one creator of life", as for all of these , world, Life , Human Bodies, etc there were many creators of various ranks and distributed in a vast time span. It is as if speaking of "The One Carpenter" who has made all furniture on the planet, or "The One Programmer" who has created all the software in the internet. The word "God" may have 16 different meanings, and some of them are true and of great inpsiration, but some of them are simply misconceptions, and a trap. There are many who claim that all the major religions on planet earth (Like Judaism, Christianity, Muslims, Buddhism etc and we are not talking here have about chuchianity as a result after some centuries but the real authentic initiation of the religions) had a common origin , the planets earth Spiritual  Hierarchy of Light, which is like a masonry not in the visible reality , but in higher frequencies physical realities. Any way they are a very small number , and it seems that very few only earthly human beings eventually follow their path and join this organization evolving in the invisible realities on planet earth (becoming what is called masters of wisdom etc). As a comparison in the various more advanced civilizations in the galaxies, whole parts of their humanity is living and evolving in higher frequency invisible planets and realities and in close cooperation with their parts which on visible planets and reality in their  same solar system , as as united civilization   It seems that here on earth, a small minority only had real benefits in their spiritual evolution from the various religions, although many were influenced, and the religions acquired widespread fame. 

Furthermore this contact with higher frequency existences is usually temporary , and the permanent state is simply the human existence in introversion towards his inner divine spiritual existence, and of course within his/her co-existence with the other fellows and their divine spiritual inner-existence , in the civilization.
And normally in other more evolved civilizations of the galaxy (consciousnesses unveiled) , such existences are again members of the same civilization and humanity at its part in higher frequencies. They are not members of a group or organisation outside to their humanity and civilization. Or serving the secrete interests of hostile and predating sources outside their humanity and their civilization.

Here are some sayings by Dalai Lama, on that the earthly religions should not monopolize morality and virtues, and the spiritual evolution should be based in a much wider way on the concept of social good and evolution of the human existence rather than on religions.






Some quotes by Dali Lama the 14th  in his book "Ancient world, Modern world, Ethics for the new millennium" 1999 http://www.dalailama.com/biography/books


Chapter 3 "As I have remarked, the religious faith is not a prerequisite neither for the moral behavior neither for happiness of its own"  
"In this chapter we will focus our attention in the inter-religions  harmony"
"Most of the founders of religions in their teaching have given  emphasis in the development of love and compassion, and withdrawal from the selfish desires. And all of them addressed to us, asking to transform our hearts and spirit "
"They resemble between them relative to the fact that all of them give emphasis to love, compassion, within moral discipline."
"That is why I am not in favor of an "ultimate" or a new "universal religion". "
" In relation to this matter , I consider especially attractive the idea of a Universal Parliament of Religions. First of all , because in the idea of a "parliament"  is underlying a concept of Democracy, while the plural "Religions" underlines the significance of the principle o pluralism of religious traditions" 

Chapter 1
"For the spirituality , I consider that it is concerned with those properties of the human spirit that bring happiness to ourselves and to the others. Properties like love, compassion, temperance, feeling of responsibility and feeling of harmony.
There is no reason for which an individual could not be able to develop such virtues, even to a high degree, without  being necessary to use  any help from any religion ,  or metaphysical system of beliefs.  That is why I have claimed some times that the religion is something that it could be missing. On the contrary in no circumstance any of the above basic spiritual virtues should be missing."

Chapter 2
" Here I was concerned more with the description of an approach to morality, according to which the issue of morality is in relation to the basic human experience of happiness and unhappiness , avoiding the problems that are created when we base morality on religion"



"All the worlds major religions, with their emphasis on love, compassion, patience, tolerance, and forgiveness can and do promote inner values. But the reality of the world today is that grounding ethics in religion is no longer adequate. This is why I am increasingly convinced that the time has come to find a way of thinking about spirituality and ethics beyond religion altogether."

The next is a video where J. Krishnamurti is talking about  the religious mind , beyond any religion.

NON-THEISTIC BUT METAPHYSICAL HUMAN EXISTENTIALISM. 

This introspective approach to the evolution of the human consciousnesses  both of mortal personality and immortal soul, is not religion, although it shares some of its qualities and it is neither  mysticism or apocryphism either. It can be considered though an enhanced metaphysical humanism

Some of the simple axioms or principles on which it is based are 

1. The reality of the world is not exhausted by he observable and known by sciences so far, physical reality. There area  invisible realities too of which we have mainly only subjective inner experiences rather than external observable awareness by the senses  . 

2. Humans existences are not only the visible mortal body or mortal personality but mainly the immortal human soul consciousness and immortal human divine spirit.

3. The mortal part of the human being is much benefited if it is in meditative communication with his inner and by far more rich and experienced immortal existence e.g. with the immortal soul as it is united with the collective field of the other souls. But the immortal part is in benefit too with such persistent and   continuous link with the mortal part of the existence.

4. As immoral souls we have being incarnated many times in may different physical bodies, and possibly different planetary civilizations, other than earth and so it may be in the future. And for some human existences sometimes in different frequencies invisible physical realities, rather than the visible physical reality. 

5. It is a basic part of the nature of the human existence to evolve fast, and eventually live in higher frequency invisible but physical realities. This is done both individually and collectively as civilizations. 

6. The physical life was  initially a divine and sacred spiritual creation by many spiritual creators in higher physical invisible realities before it was brought by lowering its frequency   billion of years ago, by the "founders",  to the visible physical reality in which it went on evolving and being self-creating. 



7. There is no-one entitled to intervene or mediate between a mortal human personality and his inner immortal soul and divine spirit,  other than the human existence itself. The same between  the human being and the spiritual creators of physical life. A  human existence  is  and as it evolve it eventually becomes more a spiritual creator of physical life.
