Question - What is the difference between spirituality and religion?
Answer - There are many different answers to that question. However, I have come to view (organized) religion as just another part of the control structure which often serves to limit growth rather than encourage it. Organized religion tends to divide the people, rather than unite them. This is because religion itself is divided into so many different forms and formats. Spirituality, on the other hand, is a universal concept. It applies to all people and to all beings. The concept of spirituality encompasses all the questions that we ask and all of the answers which we seek.
Symbols - Most symbols by themselves do not represent good or evil concepts (with some exceptions). Rather, it is the intent in which they are used that ultimately determines the true nature of them. Many of the symbols that are used by the "Illuminati", Freemasons and various secret societies today are actually ancient symbols (that were once more common) which have been hijacked by these organizations and sometimes corrupted for their own purposes. To determine the true meaning of a symbol, one must look carefully at who is using that symbol and the context in which it is being used. This also applies to esoteric concepts as well. Not everyone who is associated with the "Illuminati", Freemasons or secret societies is necessarily evil or has dark intent.
The NWO - a one-world government and a one-world people. In many ways, this is a very attractive concept provided that it is was established and maintained with benevolence. In reality, we are already a one-world people in terms of accessibility (travel), communications and economies. The only thing that really separates us are the imaginary lines on a map, racial biases and religious dogma. Today, the lines that exist between various peoples of the world are mainly enforced and encouraged by the ever-expanding worldwide control grid,
not by the people themselves. The New World Order's version of a one-world government translates to a one-world government that
controls a one-world people (not a free world of one people that is connected by many unique and independent cultures).
In mainstream society, the term "occult" is often associated with evil, black magic and/or secrecy. When the word
occult is used in reference to some dark organizations, this might be an accurate reference. However, in general, the word occult actually just means secret or hidden. For
example, hidden truths and hidden knowledge could be thought of as part of the occult. Therefore, the study of the occult does not equal the study of evil. The word "esoteric" is sometimes used interchangeably with the word occult. This term also (most often) simply refers to something that is hidden from common or plain view.
Issue - Conducting truth (conspiracy) research can often be challenging. In the present system that we live in, the truth is designed to be difficult to find. Research into the truth is sort of like taking a walk by the ocean. Often times there will be a significant amount of fog near the coast, but once you move inland a little, the view becomes much clearer. Using another analogy, typically there is an abundant amount of misinformation and disinformation (scum) near the surface of most controversial topics and issues. However, once you get past the scum at the top, the water usually becomes much clearer below. The scum (often dispersed by various media outlets) is there to dissuade the curious. .
Solution - Diving below the surface usually yields more quality information than skimming the surface
The Universal Consciousness (UC) is a very important concept that is essential to our current existence and to our spiritual development. Below is some information which may help clarify the importance of our interaction with the UC:
