Selling Spiritual Stuff

Spiritual stuff is a hard sell Roy and one of the reasons for that is spirituality was turned into religion a long time ago. Spirit is natural and it is who you are naturally. Religion is man's commercialized idea of spiritualism. Man included within religion his own agenda, which altered the form of spiritualism for ever more. Long ago man felt the connection to his environment and that which created him. He was curious about who and what he was and many explanations came down as he starred up to the sky each night.

Some of the wiser attempted to explain his surroundings. Groups gathered around to listen, then larger groups began to form and organized religion was in its earliest form.

Gifts were brought to the speakers in gratitude for their wisdom and guidance, and so organized religion turned to commercialized religion.

Listeners were expected to now pay for advice and guidance. Religions began to spread out and marketing was introduced to maintain the status quo. The number one rule in marketing is to give people what they want, and they will pay.

Organized religion gave man rules to follow, a structure that he could live within and humanity gave up his natural freedom and responsibility for his power to the church for a measure of security and protection from evil. If he wanted redemption or forgiveness for a transgression from God himself, he could get it for a few coins though his holy appointed guardians of the truth who knew exactly what God wanted.

As civilization became more comfortable with the Church, the rules became more complicated and each time humanity turned away from the Church a new rule was introduced to bring them back and the price kept rising. Eventually man gave up all aspects of his soul's care to the Church and he accepted living in fear as his new truth.

Man forgot that in a time before religion, his soul was free and it didn't need to be taken care of. The soul is free now and it is the ego that thinks otherwise. The soul is not affected by any physical action, it is the ego that is fragile and lives in fear of being lost or becoming extinct. The paper bonds of the Church are so strong that even today, highly intelligent persons would not dare to question Church doctrine. There is really only one commercial asset that the Church has to sell and that is "fear.," and fear of the unknown is humanity's greatest fear. Fear is the opposite of love, but love does not sell well in the minds of enslaved or immature souls.
