Subject: “Walking On Their Own.”

Thought Adjuster: “Regardless of all the advances by humanity in science and knowledge about the material word, many are still bound to ancient beliefs and fears because of their traditions and their religions. It is a difficult step for some to have enough mental flexibility to abandon their beliefs and escape from a life of indoctrination to then search for alternatives.

“Fear in human beings has always been a useful tool for control of the masses. At some point religious fear – fear of punishment – was a great civilizer that forced the immature human beings of ancient times to follow the rules and to establish a social identity that contributed to the development of nations and modern social groups. Many traditions were born out of the necessity of jolting the mind of men and women into paying more attention to their spiritual lives. You should understand that to reveal to primitive humans the freedom that arises from being a son or daughter of God would have been catastrophic. Freedom would turn into anarchy and the search for material satisfaction would have been the only rule. In the first days of history, people needed discipline, ensured by the belief that doing wrong would bring nasty consequences for the transgressors.

“Today many still need this fear to orient their lives in a positive way. Just like small and immature children, the possibility of punishment stimulates the development of the impulse to improve. However, as maturity is achieved, fear should be replaced by the spirit of adventure that exhorts the soul to discover the Father in a personal and independent way in her life and her being.

“Do not lament your dogmatic and backward religions, because they have contributed much to bring you to where you are now. The improvements of the society of this age are by a great measure a product of the religions of the past, which, despite their confusion and contradictions, have preserved the idea of the existence of God through time and generations. A child needs to find support from walls, furniture, or the hands of her parents when first learning to walk. But to start walking long distances or in attempting to run, she should take the risk of doing it alone and learning to get up each time she falls. Thus, those that today are asleep in religions that no longer offer answers to their increasingly perspicacious questions, should have the courage to start walking on their own and discover by themselves what it means to be a child of God.”
