God is sacrifice.
Enlightenment is being part of God
In the bellows of the material world there is a burning process where matter is sacrificed and turned into energy and light.
It is this energy that turns the wheels of the universe; it is this light that feeds the life on Earth as we know it.
On this primordial sacrifice plants grow; and on the plant life sacrifice all that is moving life, grows; and on the top of that pyramid of sacrifices, we stand.
It is funny but if you think, that burger you had for lunch was actually “sun light” packaged as 2 for $3 deal - but I digress.
It looks like some guy, Jesus had this revelation 2000 years before me, or maybe hi didn’t but he came with this Idea of redemption through sacrifice, never the less.
His philosophy was simple – to be enlightened, you have to give yourself without asking anything in return – much like Mother Theresa did with her life.
And to make his point he made the ultimate sacrifice - he gave his life for his follow men and for his beliefs.
That sacrifice was his example of faith in God and after him his followers walk in his steps and many gave their life for the same belief, that their sacrifice is the highest form of devotion and redemption.
Some where on the path of history that changed a bit.
The victims of the savage lions in the coliseum turned into the master torturers of the inquisition.
The; give everything without asking anything in return, turned into take everything without any responsibility.
Today Jesus’ sacrifice is no more than a free ticket to paradise.
The Christian communities are stained with unwed sex, teen pregnancy, prostitution, alcoholism, drug use, domestic violence, greed and corruption.
Hey: If all Christians would behave like Mother Theresa then Jesus would have died in vain. Right?
So be a good Christian - go get yourself a male transvestite prostitute and some crystal meth and make Jesus worth his sacrifice!
