And in which we say that life is eternal but continue to struggle to survive.
A life lived of choice is a life of conscious action. A life lived of chance is a life of unconscious creation.
It graduates to 'our state is better than your state,' and 'our nation is better than your nation.' And it circles all the way around to where it started: 'Our God is better than your God.'
As we move into the 21st century, there's what the Bible calls a 'quickening of the spirit.'
It'll become obvious that we've really been working against ourselves.
I think that's a result of just a general increase in speed of the vibration of life itself.
You'll find individuals agreeing on this, but when they get into collective societies and larger groups they find it difficult to achieve group agreement.
If we win, someone else loses. But if someone else loses, we lose. Which is a point we're not getting. The new spirituality will make this just painfully obvious.
As told in Friendship with God, if we simply decided to believe and act as if first, we're all one, and second, life is eternal, it would render virtually everything we've done all our lives pointless.
Because our choices are largely based on survival. But if life is eternal, life is not a question.
One either has to believe in a God who's terribly prejudiced, or disbelieve the teachings of such exclusionary theologies. Religions have taught us that 'we are better than they.'
I think in metaphysical terms, I would call that increasing the speed of the vibration of life.
And if we're all one, we need to stop our competition with each other. Most of the decisions we make are about survival and winning.
They may not use the word better. But they certainly believe that they'll go to heaven and Jews will not.
Because we believe that our ethnic group, our society, our political party, our God, is better than your God, we kill each other.
As the new spirituality begins to become the pervasive spirituality of the planet, we'll find that we have abandoned our philosophy of contradictions in which we say we're all one but continue to try to win.
The sad part about our past is that religions, ironically enough, are responsible for creating the most destructive idea that has ever been visited upon the human race: the idea that there is such a thing as 'better.'
The new spirituality will step away from dogma, will step away from 'We're right and you're wrong.'
The Roman Catholics teach that unless you're a Roman Catholic you do not go to heaven.
It's a very small and select slice of all the people who have ever been born. I believe we've come back during this time, those of us who are here now, specifically to experience it. And to cause a 'quickening of the spirit.'
I think the new spirituality will be a spirituality that's not based on a particular dogma. And that steps away from the old spiritual paradigm that we have created on this planet, which comes from a thought that there is such a thing as being better.
I think that things happen individually first, and then collectively. It's not the other way around.
And because we are, somehow, better than they, we get to go to heaven and they don't. Christians will tell you outright that they believe that.
A great many people experience the movement from one century to the next, but a minuscule number of people experience the movement from one millennium to the next.
And we're seeing a higher level of consciousness and many more opportunities for people to challenge their present ways of thinking and move into a grander and larger experience of who they really are.
