聽神談【「不足」幻覺和「宗教、神學」帶來的影響】
 
你對「不足」的信念甚至導致了你下結論說,神也是不夠的。
 
不但生命是不夠的(你們把這解釋為一種對死亡的想法),並且生命裡的東西也是不夠的(你們把這解釋為一種對匱乏的看法),甚至那「創造出生命的」也是不夠的(而你們把這解釋為一種「有一個受限的神」的信念)。
 
由於所有這些東西都是有限的,所以你必須為它們競爭。由於這個信念,你們正在毀滅你們的星球和你們自已。 
 
你們甚至在你們為神的競爭——你們稱之為宗教——中毀滅自己。在你們對神的瘋狂爭奪中,你們一直在殺害自己,有時也在尋求消滅整個文明。
 
 
你們不會承認你們在做這些事,因為承認的話,就等於承認了你們看生命和世界的方式——尤其是看神的方式——是有些不正確。而這一點你們一直都未能做到。
 
這樣的一個承認需要極大的謙卑,而謙卑,目前並不是你們星球上哲學或神學的主要部分。
 
你們的神學特別一直是最傲慢,假設並宣稱它已有了所有的答案——不留下問題,也不抱懷疑。
 
然而,這些神學信念的某些東西並不管用。不足的想法——神不夠、生命的東西不夠、生命本身的不足——導致了不止是單純的競爭。它導致了殘忍的鎮壓、阻止抑制及大規模的蕭條。宗教壓抑了坦白和誠實的探詢,政府壓制了異議,而結果,上百萬的人活在經濟和心理的蕭條中。所有的這些都是出自「不足是存在的」之想法——因為充足會解決所有這些問題。
 
如果你認為有足夠的可分給每個人的話,就不會再有自毀性的行為,不會有為爭資源而打架,不會有為神而爭吵。
 
 
摘自《與神合一》第4章
 
 
Your belief in Insufficiency has even led you to conclude that there is not enough God.
 
Not only is there not enough Life (which you translate into a belief in death), and not only is there not enough of the stuff of Life (which you translate into a belief in lack), there is not  even enough of That Which Created Life (which you translate into a belief in a limited God).
 
Because all of these things are limited, you must compete for them. And you are destroying your planet and yourselves because of this belief.
 
You are even destroying yourselves in your competitions for God, which you call religions. You have been killing yourselves, sometimes seeking to annihilate entire civilizations, in your insane competition for God.
 
You do not admit that you are doing these things, because to admit it would be to acknowledge that there may be something inaccurate about the way you view life and the world— and particularly about the way you view God—and this you have not been able to do. Such an admission would require enormous humility, and humility is not presently a large  part of your planet's philosophy or theology.
 
Your theologies, in particular, have been most arrogant, assuming and proclaiming to have  all the answers—leaving no questions and entertaining no doubts.
 
Yet something about these beliefs is not working. The idea that there is not enough—not enough God, not enough of the stuff of Life, not enough Life Itself—has led to more than simple competition. It has led to brutal repression, to suppression, and to massive depression. Religions have repressed frank and honest inquiry, governments have suppressed dissent, and millions of people live, as a result, in both economic and psychological depression. All of this has come out of the idea that Insufficiency Exists—for sufficiency would solve all of this.
 
If you thought that there was enough to go around, there would be no more self-destructive behaviors, no more fighting over resources, no more squabbling over God.
