“Good morning! This is Kuan Yin.

Today we talk about the sometimes terrible consequences of belief. The being through whom these teachings express will now share a story of an experience she had two days ago.

What can be the lesson here? Of course, it all circles back around to what we have been talking about in recent teachings, the belief of separateness. It starts early in life, and is part of the earthbound experience, but it leads to such suffering.

Religion certainly can have benefits, but when it intensifies the model of “them and us” and “the other” it grows like a cancer until it harms everyone it comes in contact with. You don’t need me to tell you the repercussions of the Crusade, or ethnic cleansing, under the guise of spirituality. The pain has been past comprehension.

Even within one religion, once someone has an idea that it would be better some other way, whole movements split off from the main and create new groups, and then start turning back to the original one with hostility and judgment. This is true of spiritual movements, governments, countries, and down to the most basic group, the family.

..

This could possibly lead to a feeling of hopelessness, or to a renewed commitment to waking. The world is complicated, but as Master Sha teaches,

..

Meditate.

Trust the Divine, Tao, Source to lead you.

Trust your own soul to lead you.

Find a way to a no-thought state of being, and stay there as much as possible.

Stop creating new karma through your thoughts words and actions.

Judge nothing, offer love to everything.

Observe your world as a baby does, one with all.

That is all.

I love you.”

This teaching was expressed through Kristin Strachan, Kuan Yin Lineage holder, student of Master Zhi Gang Sha, teacher and spiritual practitioner in Colorado.
