Why does no established religion 100% gel with me? Why do I think everyone is wrong?

Why does no established religion 100% gel with me? Why do I think everyone is wrong? I realize fully I will sound like a lunatic so I just don't tell people what I really believe. My actual beliefs and interests line up the closest with Theosophy more than anything which is uh, probably not good.

Or it might be good. Who knows? I thought I had everything figured out, but apparently I actually know nothing about reality at all. I know it's stranger than we think.

    It's no coincidence that Socrates himself said, "I know that I don't know"

    I'm in a very similar situation OP, even to the extent where my views have more in common with Theosophy and Anthroposophy than any established religion, and I really gave some traditional religions a long chance. Reality, and not it's illusory appearance is truly perplexing to me

    that's where faith comes in. needing to "know" is a defect of your own pride.

    Oh my GOD.

    Take it from somebody who has already done all the fricking work. You won't get anywhere that you want to get trying to find a religion that explains the truth. Religion is a manifestation of spirituality into reality, it's how you USE spirituality in your day to day life. Spirituality in and of itself is the truth and you can indeed discover it. Almost everybody can. Know that society and the way you live every single day waking up to the time you go to sleep is directly designed to get you to never, ever realize this.*Designed* with that purpose in mind.

    It is so, so painfully easy to understand GOD and what GOD is. You know those tests where you would be given a grid with only bits of information, and then you'd have to figure out who lives in what house and with what dog or colored windows? You can basically do just that with the information all religions provide about GOD and come to the actual conclusion, which is that EVERYTHING THAT EVER COULD, WOULD, HAS, AND HASN'T HAPPENED is ALL HAPPENING IN THE SAME INSTANT and that is GOD, of which we inherently are a part of.

    Now, that's a great thing to learn, but that doesn't guarantee you'll get to this next part. You know that you are GOD, wholly and uniquely a part of it, but *how* and *in what way*? This is the part that people get weird about. You are GOD. You can hear GOD. You can directly listen and tap into the ether, the same way great scientists and artists have for centuries. The thing you think is your own voice in your head is actually like a private, partitioned room- that voice is actually a part of GOD, and you can use it to sort of "reverse search" information from the all by talking to it and learning to understand the parts inside of you.

    In another thread, they're talking about the Eye of Providence. That's the conciousness of GOD, and also the part we have direct contact with- how we literally "see" this world.

      What I thought would be spiritual enlightenment turned out to be a fricking nightmare.

        Yep! I want to laugh but it's not funny. But it is. But it isn't. Cruel joke and the joke is on me!

        I don't think it will end badly, but it's definitely not what I expected, and I'm still trying to figure out what to do with this knowledge and how to share it without getting killed for doing something meaningful with it.

        What is enlightenment, tell us. Tell us why it's so bad
        All you homosexuals say this same thing but never explain
        You are all posers.

          Let's start with the very beginning.

          You are GOD. In this vacuum of understanding, if you suspend everything you have ever been taught, and have a go at understanding the Earth and our reality with this one concept in mind- where does that get you? What does that imply?

          "Enlightenment" is not just one piece of information. It's all information across space and time coming together to explain everything. You're asking me to condense that down to English of all fricking languages and also in a way that you, from your perspective, completely understand without question. That's asking the nigh impossible and why it's so difficult to just provide a compiled, boiled down and easy-to-swallow answer. I understand it's easy to be confused about shit you don't get yet, but it doesn't mean it's not true or that people are trying to get one over on you. You also have to get that I am a human experiencing all of the crazy shit, too, and we're only ever inching forward in what we know- not going leaps and bounds ahead of one another. It's like the zombies from Day-Z climbing the wall, generations and generations living and dying and building on one another.

          One of the things that helped me understand GOD was knowing that the only thing I could ever come to completely understand, even close to it, was the human experience- by virtue of being a human myself. It also gave me more hope in the fact that I can put more trust in other peoples experiences rather than assume everyone is lying off the bat.

            >I am enlightened
            >No I don't possess the power to impart wisdom to other people
            >Let me write a pointless paragraph and patronize you instead
            Your "enlightenment" is new-age drivel and you don't even have the capability to do it up with the more specific platonic terminology

        If you understood or got anything out of my post, you now have a million things to start looking into, and I can guarantee in about a year with dutiful study you will know more than you could have ever fathomed before. The truth is massive and everywhere and once you start seeing the signs of it, you'll recognize them all over. Symbolism will be their downfall.

        Good luck anon! Thank-you for the well wishes.

    Religions aren't some transcendental experience point skill paths. They are just a collective history about perceptions and thoughts humans have had over time. Reality itself is mystical.

    Because you don't understand what it's for.
    >Why do I think everyone is wrong
    Ego.

    Because no one has all the answers and anyone who claims to is either lying or delusional.
