And We Became Gods


For as far back as I can remember into my past, I have been fascinated with religion and its hold on the human psyche. For a long time it was utter disdain eventually intrigue with this integral component of the human condition. So many paths to the gods reaching into prehistory possibly starting with pre-hominids, maybe wired into the DNA of every being to exist on Earth including the Earth Collective. It would not surprise me if every creature from Dolphin to unicellular fungi along with Tree and Rock are predisposed, genetically, with a desire or need to connect with a creator. Including those wearing the religion Atheism worshipping the non-god god.

The array of rituals people leverage to connect with the gods is dazzling from the Hindu aarti to the Catholic mass to Raven’s soaring a thousand feet above Earth. Raven? Raven’s have a soul? Yes, a thousand times yes. As does Coyote and Sequoia and Delicate Arch.

All beings are imbued with a soul, all are drawn to the spiritual, all beings worship. Unlike man, the nonhuman beings exist in a state of continual worship. In that respect, they are closer to the source, to Creator than we humans who confine our version of El Supremo to an hourly box once a week. Even then we are distracted by the buzzing phone or locked in repetitive ritual divorced from the original meaning finding us impaled on a dogma fence concerned more with the ritual mechanics than with the connection it was designed to facilitate.

I discard ritual whenever it becomes rote and can exist outside of awe. I find myself seeking new wonders, new sources of amazement to keep connection fresh and vital. This is likely why I am fascinated to learn about other faith systems and when possible, immerse my soul in their ritual if only once or twice.

I find myself wondering, is this universal longing for a supreme being because a distant god exists? Or is it proof a connection exists between each soul and the collective consciousness. The implication being each of us is a part of the god and by extrapolation making each of us a god.
