Follow Your Instincts

Writtten by : Gary Wonning

 I feel most people know more about God when they were five years old than we do now after years of false indoctrination. It seems crazy, but when I need to know what the truth  really is, I go inside myself back to that five-year-old child, and ask him what is true. He tells me because he hasn’t yet been fed all of the dogma that the churches have been feeding us for the last two thousand years.

A journey of spiritual discovery

I’m not saying that everything the world’s religions teach is unfounded and untrue; they do teach a lot of valid truth, most of which teaches us good practical information on how to live a happy and successful life.

But a lot of times it gets twisted and shaped to fit a particular dogma or need and a lot of times the powers in control are serving their own agendas rather than the needs of their congregations.

Each and every one of us, before accepting any belief, or spiritual or moral value, should use our own good judgment and common sense and not go blindly by what someone else has determined to be the truth.

We are not lost sheep, destined to follow whoever or whatever belief comes along, rather we are thinking, reasoning light beings capable of making our own sensible well-thought-out decisions based on our own logic. Each and every soul is connected to the God Source and is capable of determining what its connection is.

We are here to guide and counsel our fellow human beings; we are not here to force or coerce anyone to do anything. If each and every one of us would remember, and practice this, the world would be a lot better place.
