I was reflecting that religions and belief systems are basically mental constructs. It is like putting on different clothes or costumes, and I am sure that each person on earth would have put on at least several kinds of costumes in one’s lifetime on average. So changing one’s mindset or belief system is like changing clothes. So what really makes one person different from another when everyone is essentially the same beneath the diverse array of clothes or costumes of different designs, shapes and colours?
I suppose clothes do serve a purpose in a spiritual sense, for example, Paul wrote in Romans about putting on Christ, or in Ephesians about putting on the armour of God. To me, it is about putting on an identity – to put on Christ is to put on Love, to think and act as Love, to have a Love mentality, loving oneself and others. Similarly, when a person calls himself a Buddhist or a Muslim or a Hindu, he is identifying himself as a representative of that belief system, and he starts thinking and behaving according to what his belief system espouses.
This may sound self-explanatory and obvious, but I think everyone tends to forget that behind the different belief systems or labels or clothes, we are all One, and we know that religious fundamentalists tend to be too attached to their particular kind of clothes, and start preaching (or rather dictating) that everyone else should wear the same kind of clothes as them (or else these people will end up in a physical place called “hell” after they die – does this sound ridiculous to you?). 🙂
But we know that real life doesn’t work that way because even within a single day, an average person – even a self-professed fundamentalist or so-called staunch believer or adherent of a religion – would have changed clothes several times, especially if he has been reading up on different fashions. So, perhaps it is better not to be attached to labels, though in our society, we all do use labels for ease and convenience of reference in normal or casual conversations.
Here’s sharing an interesting nugget of encouragement which I thought is timely in view of the spiritual awakening many of us are experiencing, as old mindsets of religion and the illusion of separation are being cleansed and removed, and new garments of love, joy, peace and freedom are being put on.
Hilarion ~ Continue In Your Efforts
March 4-11, 2012
Each of you is caught up in the cleansing and clearing process which
is making some of you feel that you will be stuck in this
metamorphosis stage forever. Take heart, Dear Ones, for you are not
alone. This is a mass clearing that is now taking place and there is
no one upon the face of this Planet who is exempt from it. The higher
frequency now manifesting in the atmosphere of the Earth is initiating
great changes within every structure upon your Planet. Continue in
your efforts to become in harmony with these energies in order to
experience more grace and ease within your bodies and your daily
Know that you are always surrounded with a myriad of Angelic helpers
who assist you with great joy and dedication. You have but to ask and
we come forth. We can do much when requested by you in the clearing
and taking away of your old paradigm programs and mental patterns that
needs removal. Make your requests and then sit quietly visualizing
your Angel teams pulling the old habit and mental patterns out of your
crown chakra with a vacuum and replacing the energy vacuum this
procedure created with greater Light, golden white Light. We see that
many of you find it hard to remember from day to day the intent of
diligent practice from the previous day. Do not beat yourselves up
about your perceived failure to do so…just rest and be open and
receptive to the new programming and templates that are being given.
Those of you who have done the work and persevered throughout all
these cleansing activities will be finding your Path opening up into
more happier and joyful activities which will lead you to your Divine
purpose and mission. The activity of anchoring your Light into the
crystalline core of Mother Earth is helping her to adjust and
recalibrate. She is ever so grateful to each Beloved Human who takes
the time each day to set this intention and anchor in the Greater
Light from the cosmos. As with each Human, the changes begin within
her and then spread across her entire energetic structures. Expect the
unexpected and stay in equilibrium no matter what transpires. You are
ready – you have great strength to stay balanced in every situation.
Many of you are finding in fact, that the time between creation and
manifestation is much shorter than used to be. You are actually seeing
the results of your visioning efforts take place before your eyes. It
is now such a time upon the Earth, where you as a co-creator with the
Source are employing the power at your disposal and seeing how
benevolent and supportive it can be in its response. Every time you
speak your truth and stand in the Light that you are, the new energies
support you so that now it is a most opportune time to create
magnificence both within and without your Being. All the good that
should have been coming to you throughout the course of this lifetime
and didn’t is now coming back to you unhindered by its opposite
polarity. This might take some getting used to for some of you until
you realize how wonderful your lives are truly becoming and that this
is your Divine right as a child of the Creator of All.
Continue in your efforts and your observations of the workings of the
new laws that are making your lives better in all ways. This will
require your faith and belief until you recognize this working within
your daily experience. Be in joy with it, Beloved Ones, accept this
new way and become the walking Ambassadors of this new way of Being.
Let your every action, word and deed reflect this godliness as you
I AM Hilarion
