I've become convinced that secularism is really like a religious cult. Its God is the Great Beast and whoever questions its supremacy should suffer the same consequences as someone in an Islamic country questioning its God. As you suggest claiming who is honest and who is dishonest is naive. Being attached to the shadows on the wall and the partial truths they create makes it impossible for secularism to open to wholeness at the expense of its beloved fragmentation.
Well yes of course anything that aspires to the sense of a separate self is creating the opposite of it's true nature which is wholeness. So yes, it's like a religious cult, even the atheist is a religious cult because it's all belief. It's ironic that an atheist rejects religion and yet believes in itself.
But as we both know this is all mental, it's what happens.
Anything is allowed to happen because there is here only unconditional love and it is that love that allows for anything including the great beast, can't have one without the other...because they are the same one face...it's all God nick....it's all one face, there's always two sides to every story...on the one side is dressed as a wolf fearful for it's life, the other side is naked, fearless and faceless.
Everything sums to zero in the end....because that's all there is ...zero being the many.
Feeling separate is a horrible way to live...and it's the mind that has self created this separate image....it's ugly and uncomfortable so it searches for the Godhead of love and peace and comfort, which is the true nature of reality...only where there is the sense of a separate self will this searching happen.
A prostitute is searching for God...that's all...searching for love, because they have not yet learned to love them selves enough to know that they are love they are God in drag...they already are what they are searching for. And that we continue to hurt ourselves until we don't, until we stop and smell the roses.
