Religion Meets Spirituality

Good news! It looks like we will have a CE event September 23-24 in Oahu, HI! Kim thinks she can find an inexpensive but nice venue. Here’s her email to me. Sign up while there is still space!

Hello there!
A few people have reached out to me from Hawaii, blog members, looking for connections with Erik.  I am currently looking for venue space to book with a few leads and will announce that soon!

Here is the link to the ticket sales & itineraries! The Oahu event is packed with great things! Check it out!

One last reminder: I won’t be hosting the radio show tonight because I won’t have any Internet, Not only that, Kim is off next Thursday so the next radio show will be the week after that. I’ll keep you posted. 

Don’t forget the live streaming channeling event Kim is hosting. I posted the wrong Facebook page yesterday. It’s her private page. To get to this free event, click HERE. Friend and follow her, and you’ll get a notification for the live streaming.

Here’s a Best of Erik. Sorry it’s so short, but I hope you get something out of it!

Me: When a religious person asks for help reconciling their religious beliefs with spirituality, what do we tell them? How do we help?

Jamie: He’s already answering, but it’s so inappropriate.

Me: I bet.

Jamie: He’s horsing around. He says, “You look at ‘em and you tell ‘em, “Baptists are full of bullshit!”

Me: Erik!

Jamie: He’s laughing.

Me: Oh, Whitney Houston is not going to like that because she was a devout Baptist. By the way, Robert channels Whitney al the time and she keeps referring to herself as Nippy. That’s kind of funny.

Jamie giggles.

Me: Anyway, sorry that I digressed. Go ahead.

Erik: So, everybody, humanwise, feels comfortable if there are similarities, and within every religion, there is a mystic vein. And within that mystic vein is where there is all the spirituality, where all the morals, where everything is that “spiritual people” live by, and so you encourage them to find that vein within their own religion. Once they can identify that within their own religion, it’ll make them comfortable with the ideas, and they might start seeing how their original religion is starting to confine them.

Me: Ah.

Erik: Confining them in ways they’re not comfortable with.

Me: Yeah. Interesting.

Jamie: He’s talking about the Jewish religion would be the Kabbalah—

Erik: It’s straight in the Bible. There’s everything. How about The Book of the Dead?

Me: From the Tibetans.

Erik: You know there are documents older than this that even talk about how spirituality doesn’t need to be confined by religion to be valued.

Me: Yeah, exactly.

Erik: Really, that’s what people are looking for. But if they’re already seated in a religion, I would encourage them to go through that religion to find the underbelly of spirituality. You can’t knock somebody out of a religion and encourage them to embrace only spirituality. That’s so fucking lame. That’s the biggest bullshit you’ll ever hear. You can’t encourage someone to be spiritual They’re doing it on their own. You can’t say, “Come to our team!” There’s no fucking team. Religions do that shit, not spirituality. There’s the difference.

    Religion is not bad, but hypocrisy is bad.

    Say if someone take a religion to a level of hypocrisy that is bad.
    But if someone take a religion as a TOOL to get closer to God/Source, then it is very good.

    The Bible, Quran, book of whatever, those are just TOOLs to get closer to God. We all worship the same God. It is not Christians’ God, Hindu’s God, spiritualist’s God. The God/Source is all the same for everyone whether you believe it or not.

    Eventually if we can get close to God all the time, then basically we don’t need religion. So religion serves like a scaffolding to our spirituality.

    Some people don’t need scaffolding, but most of us do.

    Religion is neither bad or good. But the people can make it good or bad.
    Say if you are religious, but beating people, then you prove yourself that religion is bad.

    But say if you are religious, but love other people, and you show compassion by ACTIONS and not WORDS (like the parable of Good Samaritan in the bible), then you prove yourself that religion is very good.

    Religion haters are no better than religions fanatics. They are the same.

    This is EXACTLY what I had asked Erik to help me with today, to gain clarification & to find a happy medium involving my religion & spirituality! And then I suddenly find this blog post, thank you Erik, Elisa, & Jamie! I found Channeling Erik about a month ago, & have recently been reading this blog & catching up, thank you again! Love, Kylee

    Is this actually Erik talking or Jamie talking? I don’t understand, every time Erik is asked about his view about religions, he always talks like all religious people are bad, dumb and close minded, and all non-religious people are spiritual and good.

    Do you know that many non-religious people are not even spiritual, atheists, & murderers?

    Do you know in Soviet Union, China and communist countries out there, religions are banned, you are not even allowed to believe in God? You will be jailed for embracing religions.

    Do you know, in certain parts of China, if you are a minority muslim, you will be jailed just because you believe in God?

    What you perceive as “constrictions” are what many consider as FREEDOM. What you considered as BULLSHIT, is what many considered as BLESSINGS for even an opportunity to believe in God.

    If you are religious, but you forget to love one another, then your spirituality value is zero.

    But if you call yourself a “spiritualist”, and you forget to love one another, then your spirituality value is also zero. No matter how long you spent doing yogi, meditation, etc.

    To many, especially those from communist countries, like China, they are embracing religions like crazy right now. They didn’t have that before. Yes, they are the type of people who are forcing others to join their community, but that’s already an improvement compare to as being an atheist.

    I never have any confusion when it comes to religions, spirituality.

    The arabic world unlike the european world missed the age of enlightenment. I once loved a girl from egypt and we could not marry because of religion, she nearly took her life that for. And well I have been in egypt and my impression was that most of their problems have to do with religion..
