Be Pro Facts And Truth
Being in favor of facts does not mean we are anti-religious. We are thankful for the traditions preserving the teachings of ancient spiritual technologies. Some religious traditions are storehouses of this knowledge. It is these insightful researchers that give us an important legacy of tools.
We are creatures who love to explore. So, it is only natural that we explore the inner world of consciousness. Many ancient civilizations spent a lot of time and effort exploring the inner realms of awareness. We are thankful for their research and diligence.
We should not discount the wisdom within the stories of Krishna, Mythra, Apollo, Zeus, or Jesus. The analogies and metaphors within these mythologies point us to the transcendent. They implore us to create our own path using those tools that expand awareness and consciousness.
— Guru Tua
It is important to understand the difference between processes and mythology. Processes do not require faith and belief in mythology or supersitition. We need to see how myths and stories are examples to show us how to create our own unique path.
We must be careful not to get caught in the mind trap of faith and belief. Religious tradition, mythology and superstition should never supersede science. Mythologies are analogies. We should not use these as anchors that overshadow facts and truth.
I am proud to be pro facts, not anti-religious. In fact, I am thankful for the traditions preserving the knowledge of consciousness development tools. We find that many ancient cultures center on the research of consciousness. To communicate this knowledge, they use stories. These stories became myths and eventually, some myths became religions. — Guru Tua
One way to tell which traditions are healthy and which are not is by testing it with hard sciences and logic. The scientific method is one that favors using facts on which to base conclusions.
Using analytical tools is essential for a well-rounded spiritual path. They help you determine fact from fiction. They help to keep you on the path of personal development instead of becoming distracted by superstition.
It is the traditions that stand up to scientific scrutiny that we champion. These are storehouses of tools for changing consciousness stand up to scientific scrutiny. This scrutiny is not anti-religious, it is simply uncovering the facts behind the veil of religious mythology. Using this process is the best way to cultivate a healthy mindset. To find the truth, your approach to spirituality should be pro facts and truth.
We do not exist between our ears. The real you, the person you talk to inside your head, is not limited by the dimensions of time or space. Our consciousness is designed to access to higher states of consciousness. All we need are the keys to open our awareness, and these tools exist. We call these tools spiritual technologies.
Everyone has their own way of awakening their spiritual gifts sleeping in their DNA. Awakening is a process. When we open them, it sets our spiritual walk into motion. It opens our minds to new potentials.
Accessing these spiritual gifts was the central goal of many ancient cultures. We can trace the investigation of consciousness back to ancient cultures around the world. We enjoy the benefits of generations of their research. These early pioneers give us several tools for exploring consciousness.
We call the processes of these early explorers, spiritual technologies. These processes stand up to the test of science, they are repeatable and produce unique physiological changes. Using these tools, we can reach higher states of awareness that differ from waking, sleeping, and dreaming.
We use a blended learning model incorporating those processes which are safe and reliable. We are not the first to use this eclectic approach. For example, Gurdjieff’s approach was to adopt techniques proven to be effective. Human physiology hasn’t changed in thousands of years, so the work of the ancient pioneers stands the test of time.
Tools for Exploring Consciousness
Spiritual technologies are ancient methods for exploring the human spirit. They come from cultures all around the globe. They are time-tested by generations of use. These practical mental tools help us expand awareness. Some open the doors to higher states of consciousness.
The methods we select are tools that can stand up to the rigorous test of science. They are repeatable processes. Several produce scientifically measurable effects on our physiology. These changes include brainwave coherence, lower heart rates, and increased skin resistance. These changes prove these states of consciousness differ from waking, dreaming, and sleeping.
Anyone can use them, all you need to do is follow the process. They are like a cake recipe. If you combine the right ingredients in the right way and you get something delicious. They do not the belief or faith in any religious doctrine.
We divide these tools into four major categories:
Everyone has their own path. You can start with any of these methods. The more you use, the better.
Turns out exploring consciousness develops your consciousness. It’s like exercise for the mind. Consciousness development has nothing to do with religion. But, if you are not anti-religious, this doesn’t mean you should be tolerant of harmful religious doctrine. One must learn to be pro facts and truth. Unfortunately, the three most popular religions in the world are the home of the most harmful bias and prejudice. They justify everything from discrimination to genocide.
The problem of religion is magnified when their superstitions become laws and regulations. Everyone is entitled to have their imaginary friend or imaginary enemy. However, you should not try to make mythology and superstition the laws that govern others.
So, being pro-fact not anti-religious means you know the difference between tools and superstition. It means we base decisions on evidence rather than mythology.
