Zeitgeist – Looking Deeply Into Who and What We Are

Spirituality is a particular term which actually means dealing with intuition.In the theistic tradition there is a notion of clinging into a word.A certain act is regarded as displeasing to a divine principles. A certain act is regarded as pleasing for the divine … whatever.In the tradition of non-theoism, however, it is very direct — that the case history are not particularly important. What is actually important is here and now. Now is definitely now. We try to experience what is available there, on the spot. There is no point in thinking that a past did exist that we could have now. This is now. This very moment. Nothing mystical, just now, very simple, straight forward. And from that nowness, however, arises a sense of intelligence always that you are constantly interacting with reality one by one. Spot by spot. Constantly. We actually experience fantastic precision, always.But we are threatened by the now so we jump to the past or the future. Paying attention to the materials that exist in our life — such rich life that we lead — all these choices takes place all the time, but none of them regarded as bad or good per say — everything we experience are unconditional experience. They don’t come along with a label saying ‘this is regarded as bad’, ‘this is good’. But we experience them but we don’t actually pay heed to them properly. We don’t actually regard that we are going somewhere. We regard that as a hassle. Waiting to be dead.That is a problem. That is not trusting the nowness properly that what is the actual experience now possesses a lot of powerful things. It is so powerful that we can’t face it. Therefore, we have to borrow from the past and invite the future all the time.Maybe that’s why we seek religion. Maybe that’s why we march in the street. Maybe that’s why we complain to society. Maybe that’s why we vote for the presidents.It is quite ironic. Very funny indeed.

Zeitgeist is a synthesis of some of the most solid and thoroughly-researched information about the history and present state of religion and government. The video essentially starts by looking at the modern face of religion, but then it very quickly delves into the intricacies of the little-known history regarding the astrological origins of almost all of the religions.

I have been reading about the (uncensored) history of religion for many years, so I have seen a great many methods of expressing this history, and I have to say that Zeitgeist is one of the best synthesis of this information I have ever seen.

If you really want to know what’s going on and how we got to where we are today, then I would highly recommend reviewing this video in its entirety. It becomes quite easy to overcome our differences when we realize that almost all of our religions share a common origin and most of the modern religious institutions have been attempting to bury the Egyptian origins of our religions in disinformation.

    The challenge is genuinely being here, now. God is here, eternally with us. But we are absent, we’re always somewhere else. Our source and destination are with us here and now, if we could only perceive Him. Reunite with Him. That is the meaning of yoga — reunion with God.
