Please note that the text below was written by the feeling-being ‘Peter’ while ‘he’ lived in a pragmatic (methodological), still-in-control/same-way-of-being Virtual Freedom before becoming actually free.


Religion: Belief in or sensing of some superhuman controlling power or powers, entitled to obedience, reverence, and worship, or in a system defining a code of living, esp. as a means to achieve spiritual or material improvement. Oxford Dictionary

Peter: There are reportedly at least 6,000 recorded religions, with a plethora of new ones added almost daily, as yet another discontent break-away movement occurs or another new Saviour or Guru is moved to peddle the latest version of the Truth.

Humans are instinctually driven to desperately believe in or ‘sense’ that there must be a higher power who is in charge, while blindly avoiding the fact that if there was one, how come he/she/it created so much human suffering and violence in the first place and how come the ‘higher’ power has not intervened to fix things up after thousands of years of trust, faith and hope?

Is the world really a sick joke where humans are forever doomed to suffer and fight horrendous wars as to which religion is the Only True Religion having the Only True Answer?

Adding to this insanity, we insist on maintaining ‘religious tolerance’, such that it is seen to be insensitively heretical and intrinsically evil to challenge the very cause of so many religious wars, crusades, tortures, persecutions, perversions, repression, recriminations, prejudices, retributions and restrictions! In the face of the facts, it is astounding that we still continue to give any credence to the belief in God, Truth, Love, Existence, the Universe or whatever you want to call it.

Up until now the only alternative to blind nature’s instinctual programming of fear and aggression has been blind faith in a better life after-death and for this we willingly surrender our will, thwart our intelligence and trust our feelings.

No one dares to question the sacred ceiling for the atavistic fears and peer pressure are shockingly real. It is an act of extraordinary gall to even consider that everyone – and I do mean everyone – has got it 180 degrees wrong. But it does explain why after millennia of so-called civilization and spiritual search, there is nothing even remotely resembling peace on earth.

The time is ripe for some intrepid pioneers to break the insidious grip that belief has over Humanity – to come to our senses, both figuratively and literally.
