Church Without Walls











































































































The acceptance of the traditional religions of authority presents
the easy way out for man's urge to seek satisfaction for the
longings of his spiritual nature. The settled, crystallized, and
established religions of authority afford a ready refuge to
which the distracted and distraught soul of man may flee
when harassed by fear and tormented by uncertainty. Such a
religion requires of its devotees, as the price to be paid for its
satisfactions and assurances, only a passive and purely
intellectual assent.
And for a long time there will live on earth those timid, fearful
and hesitant individuals who will prefer thus to secure their
religious consolations, even though, in so casting their lot with
the religions of authority, they compromise the sovereignty of
personality, debase the dignity of selfrespect, and utterly
surrender the right to participate in that most thrilling and
inspiring of all possible human experiences: the personal quest
for truth, the exhilaration of facing the perils of intellectual
discovery, the determination to explore the realities of personal
religious experience, the supreme satisfaction of experiencing
the personal triumph of the actual realization of the victory of
spiritual faith over intellectual doubt as it is honestly won in the
supreme adventure of all human existence - man seeking God,
for himself and as himself, and finding him.
The religion of the spirit means effort, struggle, conflict, faith,
determination, love, loyalty, and progress. The religion of the
mind - the theology of authority - requires little or none of these
exertions from its formal believers. Tradition is a safe refuge
and an easy path for those fearful and halfhearted souls who
instinctively shun the spirit struggles and mental uncertainties
associated with those faith voyages of daring adventure out
upon the high seas of unexplored truth in search for the farther
shores of spiritual realities as they may be discovered by the
progressive human mind and experienced by the evolving
human soul.

Will you go back to the easy path of the certainty and intellectual
settledness of the religion of traditional authority, or will you gird
yourselves to go forward into that uncertain and troublous future
of proclaiming the new truths of the religion of the spirit, the king-
dom of heaven in the hearts of men.

I WANNA KNOW WHAT LOVE IS at BOTTOM of PAGE

* The Church of Love - {The Cathars}

* It has no fabric, only understanding.
* It has no membership, save those who know they belong.
* It has no rivals, because it is non-competitive.
* It has no ambition, it seeks only to serve.
* It has no boundaries, for nationalisms are unloving.
* It is not of itself, because it seeks to enrich all groups and religions.
* It has no secret, no arcanum, no initiation save that of true understanding
of the power of love and that, if we want it to be so, the world will change,
but only if we change ourselves first.
* It acknowledges all great teachers of all ages who have shown the truth of love.
* Its participants will practice the truth of love in all their being.
* It seeks not to teach but to be, and in being, to enrich.
* It recognizes the whole planet as a Being of which we are all a part.
* It recognizes that the time has come for the supreme transmutation, the ultimate
alchemical act of conscious change of the world-ego into a voluntary return to
the Whole.
* It does not proclaim itself with a loud voice, but in the subtle realms of loving.
* It salutes all those in the past who have blazed the path and have paid the price.
* Its members shall know each other by their deeds and being, and by their eyes,
and by no other outward sign save the fraternal embrace.
* Its members will dedicate their lives to the silent loving of their neighbor and
environment and the planet, while carrying out their task, however exalted or
humble.
* It recognizes the supremacy of the Great Idea which may only be accomplished
if the human race practices love.
* It has no reward to offer either here or in the hereafter save that of the ineffable
joy of being and loving.
* Its members shall seek to advance the cause of understanding, doing good by
stealth, and teaching only by example.
* Its members shall heal their neighbors, their community and our planet.
* Its members shall know no fear and feel no shame, and their knowledge shall
prevail over all odds.
* All those who belong, belong to the church of love.

"The Church of Love" is a prophetic vision for our time
left by the Cathars, the last known of whom were burned
alive in France in 1244 AD ...

"Love is the only religion, the only god, the only mystery that has to be lived, understood. When love is understood, you have understood all the sages and all the mystics of the world. It is not anything difficult. It is as simple as your heartbeats or your breathing. It comes with you, it is not given to you by the society. "

God is easy to know, if you do not try to define Him,
Just love your yourself and your brother,
and you will know Him - and yourself ... To define God is to deny God. You can give definition of a finite object only. How can you define the limitless or infinite being who is the source and ultimate cause for everything? If you define God you are limiting the limitless one, you are confining him within the concept of the mind. God is beyond the gross mind, but he can be realised through meditation with a pure, subtle and one pointed mind.

Knowing One's Self Is Knowing God
When you find the Divine in yourself, you will see the Divine in everyone;
where We will find Unconditional Love Unity & Brotherhood.

Only love can be just because only love can understand. Without love there is no understanding and without understanding how can there be any justice?
If you want to understand the truth you have to be very loving. If you really want to understand the whole of life in all its dimensions, you have to approach it with great love and care. You have to be very tender, soft. And then a new phenomenon arises in you: your life becomes full of justice. You cannot be unjust then; you cannot be unfair then - it is impossible. A loving person cannot be unfair.
And love is always protected by God. Only those who are not in love are unprotected; those who are not in love are always in insecurity. The moment you enter love, you enter absolute security, safety, because love is another name of God and God is protection. The ordinary man lives in fear, anxiety, selfishness. He tries to protect himself, hence he becomes very tense, very cunning. Once God is known, tasted, death disappears. Death exists only for those who have not known love. Those who have known love are beyond death.

My Prayer:

<+>

O Great Spirit,
Whose voice I hear in the winds,
And whose breath gives life to all the world,
hear me! I am small and weak,
I need your strength and wisdom.
Let Me Walk In Beauty,
and make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset.
Make My Hands respect the things you have made
and my ears sharp to hear your voice.
Make Me Wise
so that I may understand the things you have taught my people.
Let Me Learn the lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock.
I Seek Strength,
not to be greater than my brother,
but to fight my greatest enemy - myself.
Make Me Always Ready to come to you with clean hands and straight eyes.
So When Life Fades,
as the fading sunset,
my spirit may come to you without shame.

EGO: The Original Sin
Technology-Becoming Egoless,-Will Be Our Future

The moment that you release the ego, release the
little mind as that through which you live…in that
moment there is only God before you.

Come out of the cage of flesh;
your ego prison.
Realize that ending the ego is the only truly
worthwhile event that can happen in a human life.
There is an Angel inside of you,
set 'Him free -

" For you will find Love & Happiness nowhere,
unless you bring some with you "

We can build a community out of seekers of truth,
but not out of possessors of truth,
We are Love by Default,
again,
We are all each other at our Spiritual Root Source,
I.E.: tha same spark of Divinity is in every human being
on Planet Earth.
Unless a divine lover lived in man, he could not unselfishly and
spiritually love. Unless an interpreter lived in the mind, man
could not truly realize the unity of the universe. Unless an
evaluator dwelt with man, he could not possibly appraise moral
values and recognize spiritual meanings. And this lover hails
from the very source of infinite love; this interpreter is a part of
Universal Unity; this evaluator is the child of the Center and Source
of all absolute values of divine and eternal reality.

Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries.
Without them, humanity cannot survive.

- Dalai Lama -

Trust GOD & Do Good, > Psalm 37:3
- It's that simple ...

Loving Devotion transmutes man into divinity. It intoxicates the devotee with divine love and gives him eternal satisfaction. It makes him perfect, weans his mind from sensual objects and makes him rejoice in God.

Emotional excitement is not devotion to God. Devotion is pure love, Fanaticism is not devotion; but frenzy, mere excitement. - Loving Devotion is not mere emotionalism, but is the tuning of the will as well as the intellect towards the divine. It is supreme love of God, and later blossoms into knowledge of the self. It leads to immortality. Loving Devotion is the direct approach to the ideal through the heart. Love is natural to everybody.

Loving Devotion can be practised under all conditions and by all alike, learning, austere penance and brilliant intellect are not needed for the attainment of devotion. What is wanted is constant and loving remembrance of God, coupled with faith and trust. That is the reason why the path of devotion is available for everyone.

My God thou art my hope, my rest, my delight, my centre,
my ideal, my goal, my soul, my all in all.
O Lord! I am in you and you are in me.
I am He whom I love, and He whom I love is I.
O wisdom divine! Enlighten my mind.
O love divine! Fill my heart with purity.
