Do you ever wonder what religion must have been like for our ancestors? Because we didn’t have the technology that we have now, how could we have ever known what someone else’s belief was? We all had our own religions, our own beliefs, even if it all was under the umbrella of the same religion we practiced; we still could not see eye to eye on what the scriptures say. Just look at all the contradictions between Catholicism and Protestantism. Over the years, look at how one religion tried to suppress the other. Religion has become oppressive. Look what we did to the Aboriginals. Look what we did to the Jews. Look at all the wars we caused — All in the name of religion. All in the name of God.
God is Love
God is unconditional love. God loves us so much that He gives us the free choice to love Him back. Does religion do that too? Does religion consider the other? Does religion respect the other’s views? Does religion think it can learn from other religions?
The crux of a problem or argument is the most important or difficult part of it which affects everything else.Collins Dictionary
Religion is good because it is seeking God and trying to understand how to be a better person but the problem is that everyone believes their religion is the correct path to God, yet, their very own scriptures say that no one is righteous and all have turned away from God (Psalm 14:1-3). There is only ONE who is righteous. He is Messiah but who is Messiah?
Our brain is physical. We trust the paths that we have made that is our program (belief) to tell us how to make choices that we can trust. But the Bible explains that the brain, or the head, is masculine. It is dominant. It is what we trust and what we are fighting against because if it doesn’t love God, it is ego.
But How Do We Love God?
The Bible tells us that we have to love from our heart. The heart is feminine.
The masculine energy is unconditional love because God only loves and is waiting for His Bride (humanity) to love Him back. Humanity is the feminine energy that has the choice to choose between good and evil. We have free choice. If we choose to love the other from our heart (God in Heaven) then we become the masculine energy that unconditionally loves here on earth. It means we make choices that are good for and is considerate of all of us.
We Are ONE Soul
From the beginning of time until now humanity has been committing good and evil. If we love God we choose to be good and are in His image. All of our ancient ancestors have been recording what they have learned and discerned from life experiences to help others learn from their mistakes to have a better future. Those voices are here to help the collective whole.
The Man and the Woman are ONE
Life is about balance but we cannot be balanced until we realize that we are ONE. We are ONE because God created us all. If we believe in God then we only believe in good. We believe we all are good because we all are a creation of God. We all can help one another to be better.
If we believe in God we believe in God in the other.
It is near the end of the day and now we know. What do we know? We know how to be better people. We know how to make better choices for ourselves, each other, and our children and their children. We know how to make this world a better place.
Unless we die to our narcissistic, dogma self and learn to love the other by seeing the good in the other with a heart of compassion, empathy, and love; we will never stop repeating the same mistakes over and over.
The crux of the heart (from Latin “crux” meaning “cross”) is the area on the lower back side of the heart where the coronary sulcus (the groove separating the atria from the ventricles) and the posterior interventricular sulcus (the groove separating the left from the right ventricle) meet. It is important surgically because the atrioventricular nodal artery, a small but vital vessel, passes in proximity to the crux of the heart. It is the anastomotic point of right and left coronary artery.Wikipedia
The Man and the Woman (Left and Right) are in Love
Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold. She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her; those who hold her fast will be blessed.
The woman comes out of the man. She is a piece of Him. She is one with Him. The woman (humanity) is in the man (God) that loves Him in her. He is birthed to the world through her love for the Man of God.
We are the two trees in that perfect garden. We are pregnant, again, but this time instead of birthing sin (knowledge of good and evil) to the world, we birth love (life) that breaks the sin of darkness that we have been looming in all this time.
— But now we see eye to eye and are able to see our truth.

Religion itself is hindering while loving God. This is the time of Universal religion.
