inherently nonsensical

June 9, 2011

I am often amused by the fact that atheists act as though they are the enlightened (and “evolved”) ones when their system of thought lacks the very ability to explain what it means to be enlightened. It is one of the most blatantly self defeating philosophies out there.

As GK Chesterton once wrote, “If Nietzsche had not ended in imbecility, Nietzscheism would end in imbecility.” This is phrase is meant to be pejorative (and I am sorry if it offends) but it is remembered because it is quite true. Atheism is inherently nonsensical.

    What is faith? It is always blind.

    A man who knows does not need faith.

    Faith is always in the other – in Jesus, in God, in heaven, in hell.

    It is always outside you, and truth is within you.

    Faith is needed for exploitation.

    It is faith which has kept humanity ignorant.

    Religions teach faith because they cannot help you to find the truth.

    They themselves don’t know where truth is.

    True religiousness is your own interiority, your own inner space.

    It is your innermost core.

    It is an inward journey. It opens up only in deep meditation.

    It is Intuitive (No Mind)

    Intuition will give you a tremendous clarity, understanding, a new kind of intelligence of which you are absolutely unaware.

    Intuition cannot be translated into intellect.

    Intuition is given by your own nature, from inside.

    You have your guide within you.

    Does the Christian church know the truth?

    It has, in fact, no way to reach to the truth. Prayer is not the way, because prayer is based on belief in a fictitious God.

    So it is not a question of faith or belief, it is a question of deepest inquiry into your own being, into your own consciousness.

    The reality is that the truth should be revealed, that the people should come to understand what is false and what is not false.

    The only true religion there is, is the art of changing the unconscious mind into consciousness.

      Hi ENC,

      Faith is not blind. Faith is based on a confidence of what God has done in the past will be done in the future. God saved Israel. God saved Moses. God saved David. God raised Jesus from the Dead. God will raise me up to.

    • The Emperor's New Clothes Says:

      You have heard other people saying that there is a God, but have you met anyone who has seen God?

      The end result of believing, of having faith in a truth that you have not realized yourself.

      It is hearsay.

      • WVS Says:

        I have met hundreds of people who have experienced God. In fact, a majority of people have experienced God.

        Why do you doubt the experience of so many people?

      • The Emperor's New Clothes Says:

        There exists no evidence for any God, and no theologian in the whole of history has been able to give a single proof for the existence of God.

        The truth is that God himself is a creation of man’s imagination.

        When I say there is no God, I am not saying that I disbelieve in God; even for disbelief, God has to be.

        I am simply saying there is no God, has never been – all definitions are inventions.

        Religion is a con game.

        It is all a psychological sickness.

        And God is not the cure.

        God is not a solution for any problem.

        In fact, God creates more problems in the world and he does not solve anything.

        There are over three hundred religions in the world and all are fighting with each other.

        These are all created because of the concept of God, because they have all invented their own concepts.

        What divides all the religions? Just small details, meaningless details, about their idea of God.

        But if there is no God, all those differences disappear.

        All God-oriented religions are simply fiction.

        Religious organizations are nothing but sophisticated ways of hating others who don’t belong to your organization, to your herd, to your crowd.

        They have crippled everybody, poisoned everybody; their destruction is uncountable.

        The God-oriented man lives in ignorance and believes that he knows.

        If God created the world, and if he is behind nuclear weapons and the people who are creating them, then no effort on man’s part can prevent the destruction of the whole planet.

        To give the creation of the world into the hands of a fictitious God is very dangerous.

        It makes us absolutely impotent. We cannot do anything.

        God is simply the poverty of human consciousness.

        God exists because you are not aware of yourself.

        The moment you know yourself, there is no God and there is no need of any God.

        Truth is uncovering yourself from all lies.

  2. The Emperor's New Clothes Says:

    When consciousness becomes awakened, you are enlightened.

    And all the people who have become fully conscious have all agreed on the point that consciousness is the stuff the universe is made of – different forms, different stages, but it is all consciousness.

    It is not just a philosophy or an imaginary idea, because thousands of people have become totally conscious.

    Those who have become totally conscious have been our highest flowering.

    In them is the argument for our evolution.

    But the West has not known the experience of enlightenment.

    It has created great artists, but unfortunately in the West there has been no atmosphere for enlightenment.

    To experience the whole is the only holy experience…
