Have you ever noticed how religion can often alienate, divide and turn people off? On the other hand, when we dip down into our deep feelings and lift out of ourselves what is real, people are drawn to it, want to be around it, and want more if it. Jesus once said that if he was lifted up, he would draw all people to himself. Unfortunately, the Christian religion turned this into some nonsense about people getting saved, becoming Christians, and worshiping Jesus. There is nothing more real and natural than that deep-feeling dimension or Spirit within you, which was the same Spirit within Jesus. What Jesus meant by those words is that if we lift out from within us what is real in our deep feelings, that we find that a true togetherness happens because people know a good thing when we feel it.
