Being pro-facts does not make you anti-religious. Some religious traditions are helpful. They preserve and protect the tools of consciousness development.
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 to explore the inner world of consciousness. Many ancient civilizations spent a lot of time and effort studying 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 essential to understand the difference between processes and mythology. You don’t need faith and belief in mythology or superstition to use methods for exploring consciousness. We need to see how myths and stories are examples to show us how to create your path.
Pro Facts Not Anti-Religious
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 and metaphors for the spiritual experience. We should not use these as anchors that overshadow evidence and truth. But as we talked about before, legends can be tools for enlightenment if used correctly.
“I am proud to be pro facts not anti-religious. 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 is to test them with hard sciences and logic. The scientific method favors evidence 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 keep you on track with 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 that stand up to scientific scrutiny. This scrutiny is not anti-religious. We are merely uncovering the facts which expose religious mythology. When you use these processes, you will be pro facts and truth.
Pro Consciousness Development
The dimensions of time and space are not barriers to our consciousness. We do not exist between our ears. The real you, the person you talk to inside your head, have no limits. Our consciousness has a foundation of pure awareness, enabling us to access higher states of consciousness. All we need are methods to opening these doors. We call these tools spiritual technologies.
Everyone has their way of awakening the unique 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.
The research of consciousness and learning to access these spiritual gifts was the central goal of many ancient cultures. The investigation of consciousness is something many ancient cultures thought was necessary, and we enjoy the benefits of generations of 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 methods that produce measurable physiological changes. These tools enable us to 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 strategy was to adopt techniques proven effective. The research of these early pioneers stands the test of time.
Tools for Exploring Consciousness
The catalog of ancient methods for exploring consciousness is what we call spiritual technologies. They are a collection of processes to develop the potential of the mind, body, and spirit. They offer us ways to expand awareness and reach higher states of consciousness.
These tools differ significantly from religion. They do not require faith or belief in any religious doctrine. Anyone can use these processes to develop their full potential. All you need to do is follow the process, and it’s just like following the recipe for baking a cake. If you combine the right ingredients in the right way and you get something delicious. The basis of these methods is facts and truth.
We select the best of these ancient methods for our blended learning method. These processes are time-tested by generations of use, and they stand up to the rigorous tests of science. They are repeatable processes, and several produce measurable effects on our physiology. These changes include increased brainwave coherence, lower heart rate, and increased skin resistance. Changes like this prove these partitions of consciousness differ significantly from waking, dreaming, and sleeping.
We divide these tools into four major categories:
Everyone can use these methods to create their unique spiritual path, and you can start with any of these methods. The more of them you use, the faster your progress.
It turns out exploring consciousness is 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 dangerous religious doctrine. One must learn to be pro facts and truth. Unfortunately, the three most popular religions are the home of the most harmful bias and prejudice. They justify everything from discrimination to genocide.
Mythology and superstition become more harmful when their superstitions become laws and regulations. Everyone is entitled to have their imaginary friend or imaginary enemy. But we should never make mythologies and superstition the laws that govern others.
Being “pro facts, not anti-religious” is the difference between tools and superstition. It means we base decisions on evidence rather than mythology.
