> The spiritual existence interacts with your spirit which allows it to tap into its mind revealing the beauty of the universe with its billions of stars with several of them having planets with various life forms. Your spirit is bedazzled by the love interaction and unison of all souls within this community working toward the further development of this vast amazing universe. Way off in the distance you are directed to a tiny speck within the great expanse circling a star to which you are drawn and you recognize this speck to be the earth where your people reside.
> You are shown mans millennium long struggles to be the correct ways of having their souls get into Heaven; this spiritual community that you are now experiencing that man has called God. You see the beginning of mankind; several groupings develop with each claiming to know the correct way to God. Dispute escalates to a point where ill will causes men to kill each other in the name of God; millions are annihilated over time, you see sufferings and more killing to the point where this gruesomeness sickens you.
> It is time for mankind to reassess its definition of God and what constitutes God, or the Intelligent Designer. Faith has existed since the beginning of man and will exist until man's extinction. Spirituality, faith and believing in God does not necessarily equate to subscribing to a hierarchy; this idea, IMHO, will be eliminated as man eliminates its superstitions. A logical, rational, modern God is a spiritual unity that is self-sustaining and needs nothing from mankind.
> Transcendology is a tenet of spiritual transcendence that asserts that truthfulness and rationality in religions are truths that can be substantiated by science or those that can not be proven to be incorrect. It dictates that spiritual interaction is only possible between the Spirit of God and the spirit of man; claims of supernatural acts performed by physical or spiritual beings in the physical universe are not prudent.
> If Transcendology is accepted by religions, they become "rational religions".
Most organized religions as practiced today have lost the true message of the prophets or have misinterpreted them. I'm reading a book by Eckhart Tolle "A New Earth" that is giving me a new perspective on a spiritual life. He belives devine consciousness is within us and we are part of an infinite consciousness. However we have constructed egos which are very limiting and have identified with ego as self. Once we learn to disconnect from ego as self we can experience the infinite consciousness.Another benefit of this is letting go of the insanity of the world (group ego consciousness).
