Who’s In Charge of Your Wiring?
“People tell you the world looks a certain way. Parents tell you how to think. Schools tell you how to think. TV. Religion. And then at a certain point, if you’re lucky, you realize you can make up your own mind.” ~Carrie-Anne Moss
Think of the possibilities
One of the biggest issues I have with most mainstream religion is that it teaches you how and what to think about yourself and humanity. For example, Judeo-Christianity teaches you that you are a sinful, shameful creature in need of a bloody, sacrificial atonement and salvation; that your righteousness is as filthy rags. It tells you that there is no good thing in you, and what moral, ethical behavior you exhibit is because of God—and without God, you are incapable of altruism, empathy, compassion, and making ethical decisions.
“For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out.” ~Romans 7:8
If you think that about yourself, you’ll think that about others, too. Garbage in, garbage out.
Don’t give your power away!
