Mystical Metaphysical Spirituality
The belief system which the work of Robert Burney is based upon starts with the belief that the Truth of who we really are is: Spiritual Beings having a human experience!
"We are not weak, sinful, shameful human creatures who have to somehow earn the right to become Spiritual. We are Spiritual Beings having a human experience. That is a 180-degree swing in perspective. It changes everything! As John Lennon said, "Imagine." Imagine a world based upon this knowledge. The belief that there is something inherently wrong or shameful about being human is all-pervasive in human civilized society.
It is woven into the fabric of civilized societies around the world. There is nothing shameful or bad about being human! We are NOT being punished for something some dude did in a Garden thousands of years ago!!! We are NOT being punished because some angels tried a coup d'etat on some bearded male god. We are NOT being punished, as some of the new age psychics and channeled entities claim, as the result of our ancestors becoming trapped in the lower vibrational frequencies because they liked sex too much, or procreated with animals.
THAT IS ALL BULLSHIT!!! Those are twisted, distorted, grotesquely warped misinterpretations of what were originally symbolic, metaphoric, allegorical attempts to explain the unexplainable. They no longer contain more than an echo of a grain of Truth in them. They have been distorted so grotesquely because of the shame which humans assumed came with the pain of the original wound. We are also not trapped in a vale of tears because there is no God-Force. We do not exist simply because of some biological accident.
And we are not going through a cycle of lifetimes simply because that is all there is - or as Buddha supposedly taught, of which the goal is to cease to exist. I say supposedly because it is very difficult to discern what Buddha actually taught and what distortions polluted the Truth which he accessed. The teachings of all the Master Teachers, of all the world's religions, contain some Truth along with a lot of distortions and lies. Discerning Truth is often like recovering treasure from shipwrecks that have been sitting on the ocean floor for hundreds of years - the grains of Truth, the nuggets of gold, have become encrusted with garbage over the years.
" "We are transcendent Spiritual Beings who are part of the ONENESS that is the God-Force. We always have been and always will be. We are perfect in our Spiritual Essence. We are perfectly where we are supposed to be on our Spiritual Path. And from a human perspective we will never be able to do "human" perfectly - which is perfect. We have been trying to do human perfect according to a false belief system in order to get Spiritual. It does not work. It's dysfunctional.
" "I spent most of my life feeling like I was being punished because I was taught that God was punishing and that I was unworthy and deserved to be punished. I had thrown out those beliefs about God and life on a conscious, intellectual level in my late teens - but in Recovery I was horrified to discover that I was still reacting to life emotionally based on those beliefs. I realized that my perspective of life was being determined by beliefs that I had been taught as a child even though they were not what I believed as an adult. That perspective caused my emotional truth to be that I felt like life was punishing me, and that I was not good enough - that something was wrong with me. I felt like a victim of life, like a victim of myself, at the same time that I was blaming others for not making me happy. I had to start trying to find a concept of a Higher Power who could Love me even though I was an imperfect human.
If my Creator is judging me then who am I not to judge myself? On the other hand if the Goddess Loves me unconditionally then who am I not to Love myself? And if the God/Goddess/Great Spirit/Universal Force Truly Loves me then everything has to be happening for reasons that are ultimately Loving. The more I came to believe and trust - what some place deep inside of me I could feel, could remember, was the Truth - that all of the pieces of this puzzle of life fit together perfectly, and that there are no accidents, no coincidences, no mistakes, the more I was able to accept and Love myself and others. And the more I was able to trust the process, myself, and my Higher Power."
Quote from Codependence: The Dance of Wounded Souls
Spiritual Beings having a human experience.
This is the polar opposite of the beliefs which underlie Civilization. In order to become aligned with the Truth of an Unconditionally Loving Higher Power / God-Force / Goddess Energy / Great Spirit we need to change our relationships with ourselves and everything in our life.
