The purpose of religion...

Besides the value of human order and unification, is there a higher purpose served?

It started with the denial on my part to accept Jesus as G-d in human form. I have been told that G-d came and dwelt among mankind in the form of a man, and was tortured and murdered by humans, so that humans could be free from the punishments they deserved after they die, for the wrong things they do on earth.

I asked, why does this G-d not just reveal himself in his true form to each one of us directly and obviously. To remove all doubt and questions to what it is and what he expects from us. This would eliminate all the warring and killings in the world over religious disagreements and since he is omnipresent he could work with each one of us individually, giving us perfect advice and to help us become the best possible human we can be during our time on earth.

I was told that if G-d were to show us his pure form, that we would become like robots, unable to maintain our freewill and ability to chose to love and follow G-d. That the awesome power of his pervasive love would leave us not choice but to love him. That G-d wants our love and love requires freewill else it is not love.

So, according to that idea, he has to hide himself from us so that we can come to him on our own accord.

This got me thinking that then it is totally unjust for anyone to be judged according to their actions on earth, since there is no true reference point to base our decisions on.
Not only is there no reference point but there are thousands of conflicting opinions on what G-d is and how we are supposed to act based on what all these "informed" people say he wants.

I do not believe that G-d would require such a flawed system to discover who loves him.
There are too many variables out there that can influence the outcome that the odds are that very few if any will ever do it right and find the truth. In fact, by this person's definition, if someone ever did know the truth, they would instantly be unable to choose to love, and would become G-d's love robot.

So, I think that maybe the best way to find the truth about the nature of ourselves and the existence and nature of the creator of this current reality is to not listen to the millions of conflicting systems. To look to our design and the world around us to discover what it is we are and what we are to be. To look at the information in the formation.

I think that G-d is talking to us, by everything he made. It is a huge unfolding method of communication. We are a subsystem of the overall system.

A good test of the methods of individual behavior should be on how they fit with not only our design and the design of the adjacent systems, it should also evaluate how the behavior enhances our ability to grow into more complementary beings within the total system.

We are organic agents, with certain programs to perform different functions based on the stimulus patterns that we receive on our sensory devices. It is throughout these patterns and responses that we can discover the truth about ourselves and maybe that is a good place to start to discover the mind of that which made us.

About the Rune "Algiz"...

I have been asked about the Rune and what it means, and after a bit of online research I found out quite a few interesting things. Before this search, I knew it meant "safehaven" or "protection". There are some interesting things to interpret from it's meaning and my use of it. Seems the Dark Lord was a guardian/protector... and one of my favorite finds during this search for the meaning was the following bit of inspiration that is from the www.tarahill.com site. You will also see this below, but I wanted to put it here too for emphasis.


"In terms of the journey, we have passed through death and rebirth, and must now face the Guardian before returning to our world. It is he who charges us to use our new-found power wisely. The person can no longer be simply concerned with their own personal development, but must now consider the effect that their actions may have on others. This is a crucial turning point, and the person will either choose to adopt a system…

The Dancing Wu Li Masters...

The earth has been spinning on it's axis for as long as I can remember... (3 decades).
Things have been becoming what they are for millions of years.
Yet, when the asteroid hits, they will say it happened today.
To that I will laugh, and say, You short sighted fools, it happened at the big bang, you just now noticed it. Is there choice or has it all been evolving from the rules of the universe since the rules began.

I look to the people with short sighted natures, who like to believe that they have some great cosmic role to play. I look to them to enhance my illusion. I want to believe they are right.

But here I am, on this crazy hunk of fermions, zinging through space, on a course that only the rules know. Finding myself responsible for my effects.

What a joke, the cosmic joke, you don't even know the process for digesting your own food, yet you are supposed to be responsible for your actions. You are a monkey... blind to the truth of the universe and acting like you kno…

30 years ago, Emergence...

Today was the 30th anniversary of the day I was birthed.

3 decades on Earth so far and what is it all for?

I'd like to think that my particular presence in space and time has meaning. That all the effort and resources my parents and teachers over the years have invested in me will somehow come to fruition.

I feel like I have accomplished some things that have been worthy of their contributions, but in some ways I feel like there is still so much to do to make it up to them.

I am still working on my BS degrees in Physics and Information Technology. There are many good reasons I have for such a drawn out timeline, but to me it is hard to swallow. I should be finishing my first PhD by now, but my choices in life have not manifested that reality. It is still my goal to accomplish someday, but I have become more comfortable with the way things have turned out so far within the given timeline.

I have learned that since, as far as I can determine, there is only one of me, and time seems …
