I grew up Roman Catholic, and felt them feeding on me as a child. I was literally doing psychic self defense as a 6 year old, and didn’t even realize it until later.
I eventually put up purple shields to block all the negative energy. I probably learned this from cartoons!
Some cartoonists and others in entertainment, such as Alan Moore, actually are occultists, so we maybe they were teaching us kids some lessons. Thank goodness, too, because it was very necessary. I’d be so drained at church I’d pass out.
I literally feel, at least at the church I attended, that we parishioners were some kind of sacrifice.
Awful, awful place.
I do not harbor such negative feelings against Christ himself or All That Is. I do not care about any “gods” besides All That Is. Pretender gods and mighty egregores can suck it.
However, the divinity in everyone… the divinity you can literally SEE during the psychedelic experience, that is just fine by me. God as a divine substance more than one entity, or a handful of entities.
I won’t claim to know “the truth”, but I think the idea that we are all divine, and must learn to act as fellow gods and cocreators, is a lot closer to reality.
Jesus also seems like a cool dude. I used to view him as a Boy Scout growing up, collecting badges. I suspect the Catholic Church hides it’s true intent behind this cuddly, hippy mascot.
I certainly love what Neville Goddard makes of the Bible… but maybe Neville Goddard is just so cool he could’ve done the same with any book. Maybe he would’ve made equally great material out of The Hitchhiker’s Guide or a Cat in the Hat book. Who knows lol!
