. (Part 2 of 3) Humans gravitate towards candy bars for the same reason humans gravitate towards religions.
The body craves sweetness because sweetness is a natural part of food grown naturally.
When the body no longer gets enough sweetness from food, the body will accept sweetness in another form and then begin to crave that form.
Humans crave the sweet promise of religion because they have become accustomed to that type of sweetness and not the natural sweetness of reality that comes from the fruit of spirituality.
As explained in Part 1, if you are supposed to eat fruit, but find yourself in a situation where the only thing available is candy bars, it is wise to eat candy bars. Candy bars will keep you alive until fruit becomes available again.
You know the only reason candy bars can keep you alive at all is because somewhere in the components are some pieces of the fruit of the field. Somewhere in religion, there are parts of spirituality – completely reconfigured.
Once a person begins to prefer candy bars over fruit, thinking candy bars is sufficient nutrition, what is really going on that causes the person to logically not make the adjustment to fruit?
Are candy bars the only thing thought to be food?
Has the experience that candy bars have kept them alive for such a long time become misplaced trust?
Is it the ability to overlook feeling weak and only momentarily satisfied due to a continuous state of low nutrition?
As a result, is there just not enough nutrition available to process thoughts correctly? Or is this a cop out? How hard is it to understand that it's a good thing to eat candy bars when there is nothing else available or when you don't know fruit exists, but once you understand the power of fruit that the better choice is obvious?
What exists today are societies filled with candy bar religions feeding the spirit of the people.
As a result, societies are cultures that provide the best conditions for sickness to breed - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual sickness.
If you are one of those who gives any society a passing grade, you are in a confused state of thinking and dangerously close to passing out.
Religion supports the weaker lower spiritual nature which is why, in the name of religion, all manner of evil is perpetrated and perpetuated in societies filled with religious people. This is the ongoing history of religion.
If your spirit lives on candy bars, you will be weak and sick and confused about many things.
If you live on fruit you will give your spirit the best opportunity to move higher and healthier.
Religion is good in the sense that candy bars do taste good and will stop hunger.
Religion is not good in the sense that it cannot help you live a healthy spiritual life (bring your mind, body, emotions and spirit into alignment so your entire self functions like an ecosystem).
You should be highly suspicious of anyone who tells you a candy bar is health food and fruit is the stuff of pagans.
We have been tricked by the slickster (the lower-self) because we have been given a choice among religions and their multitude of denominations.
Thinking you are making the best spiritual choice for yourself by choosing one religion over another is the same as thinking you are making the best nutritional choice by choosing one candy bar over another.
Choices & Options Never Equal, (UC#57)
How has Catholicism, Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism or Buddhism made the world any better or worse than Islam?
These ideologies are nothing but candy bar wars.
Craving Sweets, A Heavenly Addiction (Food Fight #27)
Religion is spirituality in the same sense that a candy bar is food.
Religion is the lower-self version of spirituality and a candy bar is the lower-self version of food.
Yes you can eat them, feel good, enjoy the experience and the body can get something out of them it can use, but both are woefully insufficient compared to their counterparts, spirituality and fruit.
"Free and critical minds can emerge only by a return to the source-the primary sources. A free and critical mind takes nothing for granted and is not intimidated by "authorities" who frequently may be more confused than the general public. Free and critical minds seek truth without chauvinism or shame." - Dr. Asa G. Hilliard III (1)
“One single bit of information, if missing, incomplete, out of order or just plain wrong, has the potential to significantly alter thought processes, conclusions, decisions and behaviors, even when that one single logic entry exists in a sea of accuracy.”
