Religion is what you get when men and women forsake Self-mastery, and prioritize ruling others over disciplined living. The ancients were Masters, but were later replaced with pastors. Now just look at us: the world begs for slaveholders in 2020, and tries to justify one evil taskmaster over the other.
Before there were any holy books, fathers showed their own families how to masterfully get through this thing called life. Each father was a Master, and his wife and children were disciples. At some point, men became consumed with ego, and chose tyranny as a replacement for mastery.
The tyranny of men, borne of the absence of significance, led to them seeking to oppress, rather than empower others. Even their magick became perverse, and instead of passing it on responsibly to their children, they began to kill the other magicians, and teach that magick is wicked, while continuing to practice the science themselves.
So, how did they justify this tyranny? They invented invisible deities, and blamed their evils on these deities. Now, here we are many millennia later, judging and seeking to bind and control others under the guise of “God said”. The trouble is that no one has seen these Gods except for, supposedly, the ones who made all the rules.
Those same lawgivers then turn around and tell everyone that no one can see God. How convenient. Sounds so much like “The Wizard of Oz” doesn’t it? Someone hiding behind a curtain, telling everyone else what to do, while they are false themselves. The result is that someone always ends up exposing the hypocrisy of it all, and sets out to challenge the tyranny. This is how most social movements are birthed.
The problem is that the social movements never really seek to restore natural order. They only endeavor to rebel against the tyrants themselves. Then they throw the baby out with the bath water. They are students of their own pain and misery, but rarely of their inherent divinity.
Feminism is a great example of this. Women began to tire of the gross misogyny of the patriarchal system, and decided to assert themselves as capable. Unfortunately, they forsook their Divine Nature in order to prove men have been doing things wrong. The result is not that the world has grown distant from God. What happened is mankind forsook our nature.
So, what is the solution? It is for men to become Masters again. This is true repentance. We must return to the Pattern within us. Then we can remember how to lead as Fathers. We can again walk in perfect LOVE which casts out all fear, reclaiming our significance.
Then we can be the leaders and teachers our families need. Our wives can be confident again in their Divine Femininity, having no reason to fear being abused or oppressed. The children can be equipped to walk freely in their significance.
By nature, Fathers give significance, and Mothers nurture. This is an expression of the Father as the Pattern, and the Mother as the Material of fruitfulness. Multiplication is the easy part. It is the being fruitful which demands we be intentional.
So let us return (repentance) to who we were before our programming by religions and human governments. It is time for us to cast off the grave clothes, and be naked and unashamed again in our design. This is the key to there being peace on Earth. Peace on Earth begins with internal peace, which expands to peace in the home. Peace in the home translates to peace in the community. When every community is a community of peace, the entire Earth is filled with that peace.
