There are pharisees in every industry.

Religion.

Business.

Parenting.

Relationships.

Health.

And so on.

They all tell you with absolute certainty how everything should work and what you have to do, if you want to win.

You try to ignore that nothing they say is working for you.

And you keep searching for more surefire answers that still don’t work but that take your attention from figuring out what will work FOR YOU.

Today, I got to considering the pharisees in religion, where I came across the term first.

With their static religious texts that are supposed to contain all the answers to life.

And their pious attitudes that cloud their cruel addiction to the premise of reward and punishment.

They talk of unconditional love and unending grace, but they do not really believe it and they certainly do not preach it.

Oh no, they don’t.

There are limits on their ‘god’ – He is not allowed to be too nice or too loving. He also has to be cruel, like them, with all the rules and hoops to jump through.

They need god to be in a box.

A box of their own creation and they want the whole world to obey this ‘god’ of theirs because it makes them feel valid.

It makes them feel like they have not given up their own lives for absolutely no reason whatsoever.
.
We can all have life in all its fullness but these f**king pharisees want there to be limits to how amazing life can be and so, they sign you up to their limits and rules and tell you that you will be punished if you do not obey.
.
You will go to hell for all eternity if you don’t jump through their specific hoops, in their specific way.
.
Or you will have a paradise of virgins if you jump through their specific hoops in their specific way.
.
They talk on one hand about grace but they do not really truly believe that grace is unlimited. No, it is only a matter of time before they are quoting verses at you about how grace and love go so far but no further.
.
They sing and promise that nothing can separate you from love but in practice, they mean that love stops working if you do some specific thing that they have decided is the thing that gets you sent to hell.
.
They repeat what they have been conditioned by other flawed pharisees to believe.
.
They tell you about it whether you want to hear it or not. They use the excuse of trying to save your soul but really, they just want you to join them in their sadness and unfulfilment and bewilderment about why things feel so hard and why the heavens are so silent.
.
They are the gatekeepers for the god that cannot seem to speak for himself.
.
The unfortunate truth is that they do not completely believe all that they are saying but they are too scared to really look at their hidden doubts in case it costs them their spot in ‘heaven’.
.
And you can go along with them, if you want.
.
I did for a long time.
.
I was too scared to go straight to the Divine myself and hear wisdom for myself, though I would never have admitted it.
.
I was too easily deceived, they told me and I believed them.
.
I needed their interpretations and rules and limits.
.
Like the Israelites of old, I wanted someone to tell me what to think, how to live, who to be because it meant I did not have to take total responsibility for my own life.
.
I could blame ‘them’ if I got it wrong.
.
I even became a f**king pharisee myself.
.
I cringe now at how sure I was of everything.
.
They gave me titles in their religious organisations.
.
People looked up to me.
.
It made me feel important.
.
I was so unloving, at times as I tried to beat people ‘lovingly’ with the ‘truth’ from my static book, instead of seeing the Divine in the person right there in front of me – It was always principles and punishment over love and grace.
.
How YUKKY!
.
It was all so black and white, as though life could ever be fit into such small boxes.
.
I repented.
.
And now, I struggle with ‘one-size-fits-all’ rules, be it when politicians try to tar everyone with the same brush and make government bigger and bigger as they introduce more and more laws to try and keep everyone under control.
.
Or parenting ‘experts’ who burden new parents with SO MUCH NONSENSE when it could be so much easier, if you trusted yourself and just loved your baby with no reservations and fear about how you will be perceived by other people or whether you will ‘spoil’ your baby!
.
Or be it, f**king pharisees that pop up on my FB posts and try to quote bible verses at me to beat me into submission when I dare to tell people that they are loved unconditionally and there is grace that covers every mistake.
.
Now, I see through the nonsense.
.
I see through the ‘certainty’ that hides their own fears.
.
I see the limited lives they lead and I want none of it anymore.
.
When I go straight to the Divine, I see that nothing is withheld from me.
.
When I go straight to the Divine, I sense my unlimited power and freedom.
.
When I go straight to the Divine, I am unconditionally loved and grace covers my EVERY mistake.
.
When I go straight to the Divine, I see that I am literally the only thing in my own way and if I am willing, He will help me see, clean and clear all the flawed beliefs that I allow to keep me from my good.
.
No, it does not mean that there is no challenge. THERE IS but if I am to strip off everything that holds me back, I would rather do it for life in all its fullness NOW and eternally – for freedom, fulfilment, financial abundance and unconditional love. Rather than do it just to avoid hell in the next life or just to be accepted by other flawed humans.
.
Oh there is so much more I could say about this.
.
So much more I wish I could help you see.
.
But you will not hear me yet. There is probably way too much fear clouding your ears. Fear of a judgemental, fearsome deity who will blast you to smithereens for even considering that he does not exist in the way you have been conditioned to believe.
.
The thing is, it is too important a relationship to ignore which is why I must talk about it, even to you who have been so scarred by religious people that you do not want anything more to do with it.
.
This relationship, when you are connecting with the real deal is YOUR POWER SOURCE! It is the only way to TRUE LASTING, FULFILLING PROSPERITY. You need to handle it!
.
So, here is what I can say – Honey, go straight to the Divine.
.
Honey, take full and total responsibility for all areas of your life.
.
the only reason that f**king pharisees have any power over you, is because you are giving it to them.
.
There may be principles that you can learn and apply from other people but you have to find the courage to trust your own inner wisdom so that you apply those principles in a way that fits you.
.
Stop ignoring when your own mind, body, spirit is telling you that the way you are being told you HAVE TO DO something, is wrong for you.
.
Stop deferring to everyone else’s wisdom and please stop throwing the baby out with the bathwater!
.
YOU DO KNOW WHAT IS BEST FOR YOU!
.
Do not give up your freedom to choose.
.
The Divine will never take that away from you.
.
Either you believe in freedom, unconditional love, grace or you do not.
.
And if you do, surely you can see that it is not freedom, unconditional love or grace if you are afraid of ending up in hell if you actually make use of that freedom.
.
But please, do not take my word for it.
.
GO DIRECTLY TO THE DIVINE.
.
DARE to do that for yourself.
.
DARE to trust what you hear.
.
And please stop listening to those f**king pharisees – They might mean well but they are human with limited experience JUST LIKE YOU!
.
The Divine is your source.
.
You are awakening.
.
Don’t you dare go back to sleep because you are afraid of being totally responsible for your own life!
