觀察只是一種單純地看見真相是什麼(what is so)。評判則是一種「對於所觀察到的東西,做出必定是別的東西」的結論。
 
永遠不會評判人類,只是觀察,而對我們提出了以下重要的觀察建言:
 
 
聽神談【正視一些人類「宗教」的真相與現況
 
讓我們來看清這一點:
 
宗教組織已存在世上數千年了。它打動了許多個別的生命,但就你們整體社會而言,它所做的改變卻很有限。整體而言,你們仍然面臨著和當初相同的問題,包括貪婪、妒嫉、憤怒、自以爲是、不平等、暴力與戰爭。
 
大多數宗教組織不但沒有引導你們超越這些行爲,反而讓你們深陷其中。在某些案例裡,他們還將之合理化,甚至作為他們的範例。
宗教,理應引導你們的世界更接近神,創造與神性合一的感受。然而,許多組織化宗教卻沒有做到這一點。他們雖然在這方面打動了一些個人,但你們群體社會所經歷的並非共享融合,而是相互疏遠;並非與神一體,而是分離。在某些案例裡,宗教組織在教導的實際上是人們與神的分離。
 
宗教,理應引導人們彼此更親近,産生共享融合的社群意識和整體感。然而,許多組織化宗教卻沒有做到這一點。他們的方式雖然打動了一些個人,但你們整體社會經歷的卻正好相反。事實上在某些案例中,宗教組織本身反倒是宣揚反對社群和整合。他們聲稱神從沒意圖將不同種族、文化、國籍的人們融合,更別說是通婚和共同創新。
 
你們原本希望宗教能帶給世界更多的喜悅和自由,但在太多案例中,宗教還沒有做到這一點。事實上,很少有機構像宗教那樣,以那麼多的綑綁、束縛來限制心靈;要求人們該做與不該做的、該穿與不該穿的、該吃與不該吃的,該想與不該想的,甚至於該享受與不該享受的項目等等,可列出一長串的清單。
 
的確,藉由聲稱許多你的喜愛是不好的,一些組織化宗教以所謂罪惡感來阻礙人們得到喜悅。金錢是不好的、權力是不好的、性是不好的,音樂和跳舞也是不好的。在某些地區,連被人看到也是件不好的事,因此要遮住自己!掩蓋自己!保護自己!爲你自己感到羞恥!
 
這些都已經是你們多數宗教所給予的訓示,都已經是他們的教導。然而,神真正的訊息並非羞恥、不寬容、排他性、分離與服從。神真正的訊息是喜悅、接納、自由、一體的融合與無條件的愛。
 
你們星球上大部分的殺戮、統治、壓制、恐怖都是假借神的名義,打著組織化宗教旗幟進行的。持續兩百年的十字軍東征就是個典型例子,當時許多人都是在基督的名下被殺害的。
 
 
摘自《與神對話之新啟示》第7章
 
 
 
Well, let's look at that:
 
Organized religion has been around for thousands of years. It has touched many individual lives, but in your collective society it has changed little. As a group you are still dealing with the same problems that confronted you at the beginning. The problems of greed, envy, anger, righteousness, inequity, violence, and war. 
 
Most organized religions have not led you away from these behaviors, but more fully into them. In some cases they have actually justified them, even by their own example. 
 
Religion, it was hoped, would bring your world closer to God, creating a sense of communion with the divine. Yet many organized religions have not done that.
 
They have touched some individual lives in this way, but your collective society experiences not communion, but estrangement; not unity with God, but separation. In some cases, it is organized religion that actually teaches separation from God.
 
Religion, it was hoped, would bring people closer to each other, producing a sense of community and integration. Yet many organized religions have not done that. They have touched some lives in this way, but your collective society has experienced exactly the opposite. In fact, in some cases it is organized religion itself that preaches against community and integration, claiming that God never intended people of varying races, cultures, and nationalities to commingle, much less intermarry and co-create.
 
It was hoped that religion would bring your world a greater sense of joy and freedom, but in too many cases it has not done so. In fact, few institutions have done more to bind and shackle and restrict the human spirit, presenting long lists of what one must and must not do, must and must not wear, must and must not eat, must and must not think, must and must not enjoy. 
 
Indeed, some organized religions have encumbered many human joys with guilt by proclaiming that much of what you love is bad. Money is bad, power is bad, sex is bad, music and dancing is bad, in some places even being seen is bad. Cover yourself! Hide yourself! Protect yourself! Be ashamed of yourself ! 
 
These have been the lessons of so many of your religions. These have been their teachings. Yet the real message of God is not shame, intolerance, exclusivity, separation, and subjugation. The real message of God is joy, acceptance, unity, freedom, and unconditional love. 
 
Most of the killing and most of the domination and most of the suppression and most of the terror on your planet has been carried out under the banner of organized religion and in the name of God. The two hundred years of the Christian Crusades are a prime example, during which people were slaughtered in the name of Christ.
