About Heaven And Hell

…”As far as I can tell there is no Heaven as I have understood it through religions. It is clear to me that there is a realm where our souls return to when we leave this physical life, but it is nothing like any description of Heaven that I have been exposed to. It is also apparently not fully possible to understand that realm while we are in our physical lives since, as far as I know, we cannot experience the realm on the other side of the thin wispy veil separating the physical world.
Also, far as I can tell, there is no Hell and no entity like a Satan. There certainly is evil in the world but not caused by an entity like a Satan. As much as we would like to blame evil on some external force, it comes from within us and is caused by persons, individually and collectively, not acting in their own personal best interest – to an extreme”…”If we want to do something about the “evil” acts being carried out in the world we are going to have to own up to our own “evil” acts, whatever they may be, and personally take responsibility for them, and diligently hold others responsible for their “evil” acts”…

From MartinR’s book titled Ancient Spirituality – A Direct Personal Relationship With God, second chapter, heading About Heaven And Hell.

About The Soul

“…There are no physical attributes (gender, race, ethnicity, class, status, intelligence, etc.) from a physical life that are part of each person’s soul – they do not exist outside of the realm of a specific physical life…

…A soul lives out both female and male physical lives…

…I encourage you to take a moment to think about the ramifications…and in light of this reflect on how silly attitudes like prejudice (ethnicism, sexism, racism, religious, etc.) and bigotry really are, before reading on…”

From MartinR’s book titled Ancient Spirituality – A Direct Personal Relationship With God, second chapter, heading About The Soul.

Kicking Detrimental Drama

From the chapter Addictions And Detrimental Drama, below heading titled Detrimental Drama No More

“…Once I kicked the detrimental drama addiction I found inner peace, inner silence, happiness, and could really pick up those subtle nuance messages from God. I was now able to receive God’s good advice leading me to act in my best interest – before needing to correct a situation or be bailed from it. As they say an ounce of prevention is worth – how many tons of cure? haha.

It takes patience to appreciate domestic bliss; volatile spirits prefer unhappiness – George Santayana…”

What Spirituality Means To Me

From the second chapter titled – Experiences From A Direct Relationship With God – under the heading – About Spirituality

“…I refer to the relationship I have with God as Spirituality because that word works best for me. This book then is about Spirituality in the context of a person having a direct, private, stand alone, and purely personal spiritual relationship with God, communicating with God without influence (as much as possible) from other persons, entities, or belief systems, and the profound effect it has on a person’s life. My use of the word Spirituality is not at all about anything to do with any existing religion or religious concepts, and not at all about New Age concepts. Nothing against Religion, New Age, or existing writings on Spirituality. It’s just that, to me, my experiences and impressions that I write about are very different from anything I’ve read or experienced in any of those systems.

I have read a number of writings that discuss “the difference between Spirituality and Religion”. This book is about the quiet peace that opens the way for, and about an aware and direct relationship with, God. It is not at all about any such differences, as I believe that would only be more struggle and detrimental drama…”
