The church has been telling us about heaven and hell for a long time. One is inhabited by God, the other ruled by rejected Satan. When you do good, you go to heaven; if you do evil, you will go to hell. When asked why Satan is considered evil, althought he punishes the bad guys – nobody knows an answer. Also, the ten commandments are stolen and worded completely wrong. Only small changes bring a completely new effect in the dusty sentences and adapt them to our time:
1. Thou shalt have no other gods beside me.
Be your own god
2. Thou shalt not dishonor the name of God.
Say what you like
3. You shall sanctify the day of the Lord.
Rest, when you need to rest
4. You should honor your father and mother.
Honor every human being
5. Thou shalt not kill.
6. Thou shalt not commit adultery.
7. Thou shalt not steal.
Respect the belongings of others
8. Thou shalt not say false things to thy neighbor.
Tell the truth
9. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife.
Control your instincts
10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s good.
Grant every fellow human their acquisitions
Through a small rewording, these are suddenly positive laws, that allow you to live a wonderful life. The church, guided by its ignorance, has made at least (!) a huge mistake in translating these commandments. We still have to nibble on their fault today. Apart from the role model function.
Even if it sounds unimaginable and goes against everything, that we have been telling each other for centuries: Heaven and hell are in the mind of the individual. The church tells us, that we can only go to heaven, if we live a good life, otherwise the (loving!) God will send us to hell, where we should suffer for our misdeeds. In heaven, there is a strict dress code “pure and innocent” – the guest list is probably short. But do you know what is more logical – even if you draw God into the picture: we and our thoughts decide about heaven or hell. As long as I have positive thoughts, I live “in my heaven” – because I experience positive things. The more positive my smallest and most insignificant thoughts are – the better my outside world becomes. Hence the sentence: on earth as it is in heaven. This has nothing to do with God in heaven, but means: “the outside is as in thought” or “as inside, so outside”.
In Turkey, a new bible has emerged (the most anticipated sequel since 2000 years!), claiming that Jesus was never crucified, instead Judas had to serve. Of course, the Vatican tries to prevent that from going public – because then, its marketing strategy would be completely pointless. Imagine us worshiping a traitor on the cross. In my opinion, Jesus was also something other than the Son of God – he was a man with an incredible love for humanity and a strong belief in God. His imagination and desires did the rest and earned him millennia of glory. But whether it was his intention that gold-clad men twist and sell his message in pompous cathedrals – no.
I can explain his miracles in a relatively simple way, even if it sounds crazy: on a level smaller than atoms, everything is made of the same “material”. This material in a certain combination forms stones, air, water, people, fries, burgers and wine. Assuming Jesus was really in full swing, he could probably walk over water because of his power of imagination: he imagined a closed water-surface (at least beneath his feet). Turning water into wine, he briefly held his finger in a water tub and explained, that this now tastes like wine – they believed him, he changed their thoughts and reality took a turn – sounds logical, right?
