Drawing a parallel with the usual school we all know, religions represent the 1st class of spirituality. Thus, they teach a young soul some basic principles and commands such as: not to steal, not to lie, don’t be greedy, etc.
They also tell you that there is a God above all the time with his eyes on you, who looks like a grandfather with white hair and is always upset, and who slaps you at every mistake. So you would better live in fear of Him, otherwise it will be even worse … On top of that there is a Hell around the corner waiting for you because of your sins, and you should be afraid of him too 😊 . So you fill yourself with fear of everything above you (God and the saints), as well as of everything under your feet (Hell) because we are all sinners, who can be perfect without any sin ??
You are also told directly or indirectly that you are completely and hopelessly spiritually helpless, that you are a failure anyway, and that only religion X, Y or Z is your "salvation" in this world and especially in the other.
The offer of religions to compensate for all these sins and fears of ours, many instilled in us by them actually, is that each has on offer an almighty prophet who somehow "saves" us, at least after death, that is of course if we believe in him.
Religions also tell us that although we are so sinful and punished at every mistake by this God who’s angry by definition, He loves us in spite of our sins ... In fact, they say, they do everything they can to guide us on the right path.
Some religions have also included more luxurious offers, such as if you are a young boy / man with your hormones out of control, well then if you do worthy deeds for that religion like for example you die bravely killing tens and hundreds of "enemies", preferably innocent and unarmed people but of another faith, 77 virgins are waiting for you in heaven for a group orgy in eternity.
Now, in order to move from the 1st to the 2nd spiritual class religions ask you to become their employee and not just a fan member like most people are, and as such you have to attend a school of their own to become a priest or a monk.
What seems to be ignored by all, including highly educated people, is that classical religions were conceived hundreds and thousands of years ago for the level of consciousness of that historical context, which was very different from today. This explains the master-slave relationship depicted in religions, which in fact copies the typical one of those times between the king and his subjects.
Religions actually have very little to do with true spirituality like connecting with your soul, with higher vibrations and entities, find out your destiny ... Their main purpose is to ensure society stability, i.e. give a common story to everyone they can believe in, so that millions and billions of people are able to collaborate and build huge contructs like cities, dams, armies and nations that make a civilization.
The vast majority of souls now embodied on Earth are novice / young souls, and many even lived in ancient times when those religions were relatively new and well aligned with the historical context of that times. Therefore, these souls when adhering to the religion in which they spent many lives in the past do have a familiar feeling in the present, including about the fundamental fears typical of that religion… They feel at Home, have a sense of déjà vu, feel safe since they share their faith with millions or even billions of others.
Spiritual schools’ specific
In a true spiritual school however, which I would liken to the 3rd and even higher class in spirituality, the focus is on the Inside of the student and not on the Outside as it is in a typical religion. So the answers should no longer be sought like in a religion somewhere outside, but inside in the student's soul.
Of course, this endeavor is significantly more difficult and involves the identification and release from the student’s subconscious of the low / limiting beliefs he has adopted since childhood due to family, religion, education, society, media, etc. It’s hopeless to meditate if you do not seek to identify and release these beliefs that pull you down.
There are still many people who are with one foot in one religion and the other in a spiritual school, which is as if a student attends in parallel the 1st grade classes in the morning, and in the afternoon the 3rd grade courses …. Obviously, one needs some time to transition from one grade to the other and for that transitioning period he will be part of both, but if he never let go of the past then the student risks to get confused in these circumstances and no true long-term results can be obtained.
There are other several aspects to be discussed in this regard that are related to a true spiritual progress, but also about the progress of the body vibration since we use it ultimately in this world, an aspect that many spirituals seem to ignore.
Whoever wants to know more details, as well as a way to get him out of this confusion is invited to attend our school's "Body & Soul Ascension Mastery" classes.
