rideforever Posted October 23, 2020 Share Posted October 23, 2020 (edited) Catholic means universal ... which is interesting as the priests are meant to contain within themselves a transmission of light directly from Jesus himself. Catholicism works in my opinion, at many levels ... you see that in areas that are still Catholic. Beautiful architecture, harmonious people, restrained behaviour, a sense of another world, and yes people who go to heaven. Respect for the family and for nature, for tradition, and for architecture. Yes this is all excellent. But it doesn't work everyone, true. And the correct way to deal with that is to leave areas of society (like Soho) open to those people who quietly do what they have to do. If you try to create a world for everyone the result is death. Because things don't work like that at all. Human beings vastly overestimate themselves, they do not see that death comes and for most it is a life with little yield spent on a rat race and a tired carcass thrown in a pit. Many people have many opinions ... but when they die how man of them have souls that continue? That have reached something higher? The Protestants talk a lot, sometimes every nicely, but ... it is -and I learn this the hard way- empty. Most spirituality actually happens in the rectification and regulation of the subconscious animal inside, not with the mind. Catholics, kneel, cross, pray ... they do things with their body. Protestants don't. It makes a huge difference. Most work is done with the body ... i.e. the animal. With only some work done with the higher faculties. Catholicism is an incredible religion that is right in the heart of society, the society flows out from it. Incredible to see. Look for the difference, in India one yogi lives in cave in mountain on his own. It's good also, but you can't build a society from it. It's good for one man. I don't think there was every a better church of society than Catholicism and also Orthodox. Much better than people think, even if not perfect. Now think about Judaism ... what do they do? Do they do anything? They just have rules. Mostly don't make them happy, so don't follow. They go to the wailing wall and shake backwards forwards praying .. actually maybe that does something, like shaking out lower energy and replace with higher energy - yes maybe that does something. But I don't know what practices they do ... perhaps they have special meal on Shabat ? Also is good, sit down with family, read Talmud. And don't eat pigs or blood or insects ... also good, I can agree with all this. Not sure where Zionism comes from really.
