I receive the question of “What is your religion?” a lot and find myself without a reply that would sufficiently encapsulate what i feel deeply. How do you classify, categorise and term a person who connects with Jesus with all his heart, but isn’t Christian? A person who connects with Buddha with all his heart, but isn’t Buddhist? A person who speaks to Ganesha, to Laksmi with all his heart, yet isn’t a Hindu? A person who connects with the Divine Source aka God, a person who connects with the Deepest Knowing, with the Lake of All aka Holy Spirit? A person who connects with the Ascended Masters? A person who connects with Spirit Animals, Guardian Angels and Ancient Ancestors?
Jesus wasn’t a Christian. Buddha wasn’t a Buddhist. Ganesha wasn’t a Hindu. Allah wasn’t a muslim. They all taught one thing and one thing only: Love. That was their main message, the main driving force behind every action and word. And no, not the kind of love that you may have on mind. Not the kind of love that says “I’ll love you only when you are ‘x’, i’ll love you only when you do ‘x’. Not the kind of love that plenty modern day relationships are made up of that could break off when “he’s pissed me off enough or she doesn’t give me enough attention and care”. Not the kind of love that falters today and strengthens tomorrow but the kind of love that encompasses everything-Love itself.
They were teachers of love. And if that’s what i “worship”, “live as”, “connect to”, “main teaching”, “main learning”, how then, do i answer a question like that? A hippie? A spiritualist? No category nor word can ever sufficiently encapsulate. And perhaps no word should ever. So we return to the simplest, “Everything but full nothingness”, a category becomes senseless.
