A Letter from God and Goddess
« on: October 24, 2010, 11:54:42 AM »
I got this in my email, and liked it.  I remember something similar posted here a while ago, so thought I would share this one.  This is more how I see things.  I don't know who wrote it though.  It doesn't say anywhere.

A letter from *Mom* and *Dad*
  From: God and Goddess
  To: Our Children of Earth
  Re: Idiotic Religious Rivalries
  Dear Children (and believe us, that's all of  you), We consider   ourselves pretty patient folks. For instance, look at the Grand Canyon.   It took millions of years to get it right. And about evolution? Boy,   nothing is slower than designing that whole Darwinian thing to take   place, cell by cell, and gene by gene.
  We've been patient through your fashions, civilizations, wars and   schemes, and the countless ways you take Us for granted until you get   yourselves into big trouble again and again.
  We want to let you know about some of the things that are starting to tick Us off.
  First of all, your religious rivalries are driving Us up a wall. Enough   already! Let's get one thing straight: These are YOUR religions, not   Ours. We're the whole enchilada; We're beyond them all. Every one of   your religions claims there is only one of Us (which by the way, is   absolutely true). But in the very next breath, each religion claims it's   Our favorite one.
  And each claims it's scriptures were written personally by Us, and that   all the other scriptures are man-made. Oy Vey. How do We even begin to   put a stop to such complicated nonsense?
  Okay, listen up now. We're your Father AND Mother, and We don't play favorites among Our children.
  Also, We hate to break it to you, but We don't write. Our longhand is   awful, and We've always been more of "doers" anyway. So ALL of your   books, including those Bibles, were written by men and women. They were   inspired, remarkable people, but they also made mistakes here and there.   We made sure of that so that you would never trust a written word more   than your own living heart.
  You see, one human being to Us, even a bum on the street, is worth more   than all the Holy Books in the world. That's just the kind of folks we   are.
  Our spirit is not a historical thing. It's alive right here, right now, as fresh as your next breath.
  Holy books and religious rites are sacred and powerful, but not more so   than the least of you. They were only meant to steer you in the right   direction, not to keep you arguing with each other, and certainly not to   keep you from trusting your own personal connection with Us.
  Which brings Us to Our next point about your nonsense. You act like We   need you and your religions to stick up for Us or "win souls" for Our   sake. Please, don't do Us any favors. We can stand quite well on our   own,thank you. We don't need you to defend Us, and We don't need   constant credit. We just want you to be good to each other.
  And another thing, We don't get all worked up over money or politics, so   stop dragging Our names into your dramas. For example, We swear to Us   smile::::, that We never threatened Oral Roberts. We never rode in any   of Rajneesh's Rolls Royces. We never told Pat Robertson to run for   president, and We've never, EVER had a conversation with Jim Baker,   Jerry Falwell, or Jimmy Swaggart! Of course, come Judgment Day, We   certainly intend to....
  The thing is, We want you to stop thinking of religion as some sort of loyalty pledge to Us.
  The true purpose of your religions is so that YOU can become more aware   of Us, not the other way around. Believe Us, We know you already. We   know what's in each of your hearts, and We love you with no strings   attached.
  Lighten up and enjoy Us. That's what religion is best for. What you seem to forget is how mysterious We are.
  You look at the petty differences in your Scriptures and say, "Well, if   THIS is the truth, then THAT can't be!" But instead of trying to figure   out Our Paradoxes and Unfathomable Nature, which by the way, you NEVER   will, why not open your hearts to the simple common threads in all   religions.
  You know what We're talking about. Love and respect everyone. Be kind,   even when life is scary or confusing. Take courage and be of good cheer,   for We are always with you. Learn how to be quiet, so you can hear Our   still, small voice. (We don't like to shout).
  Leave the world a better place by living your life with dignity and   gracefulness, for you are Our Own Children. Hold back nothing from life,   for the parts of you that can die surely will, and the parts that   can't, won't. So don't worry, be happy. (We stole that last line from   Bobby McFerrin.)
  Simple stuff. Why do you keep making it so complicated? It's like you're   always looking for an excuse to be upset. And We're very tired of being   your main excuse. Do you think We care whether you call Us.... Yahweh,   Jehovah, Allah, Diana, Wakantonka, Brahma, Cerridwen, Father, Mother,   God, Goddess or even the Void of Nirvana? Do you think We care which of   Our special children you feel closest to, Jesus, Mary, Buddha, Krishna,   Gerald, Mohammed or any of the others? You can call Us and Our Special   Ones any name you choose, if only you would go about Our business of   loving one another as We love you. How can you keep neglecting something   so simple?
  We're not telling you to abandon your religions. Enjoy your religions,   honor them, learn from them, just as you should enjoy, honor, and learn   from your parents.
  But do you walk around telling everyone that your parents are better   than theirs? Your religion, like your parents, may always have the most   special place in your hearts, We don't mind that at all. And We don't   want you to combine all the Great Traditions in One Big Mess. Each   religion is unique for a reason. Each has a unique style so that people   can find the best path for themselves.
  Know that Our Special Children, the ones that your religions revolve   around, all live in the same place, (Our heart), and they get along   perfectly, We assure you.
  The clergy must stop creating a myth of sibling rivalry where there is   none. Our blessed children of Earth, the world has grown too small for   you pervasive religious bigotries and confusion. The whole planet is   connected by air travel, satellite dishes, telephones, fax machines,   rock concerts, diseases, and mutual needs and concerns.
  Get with the program! If you really want to help, then commit yourselves   to figuring out how to feed your hungry, clothe your naked, protect   your abused, and shelter your poor. And just as importantly, make your   own everyday life a shining example of kindness and good humor. We've   given you all the resources you need, if only you abandon your fear of   each other and begin living, loving and laughing together.
  We're not really ticked off. We just wanted to grab your attention   because We hate to see you suffer. But We have given you free will to   choose your own paths, and We just want you to be happy.
  In Perfect Love and Perfect Trust,

*nods*  I was hoping for at least a little conversation though.
