Inner anarchy locates authority within ourselves

anarchysymbol5

A big transition that inner anarchy will bring as it relates to the religious climate is a shift from externalizing authority to things outside ourselves – God in the sky, the Bible, teachers/gurus, religious tradition – to discovering and following that authority within ourselves. Jesus demonstrated this reality by placing himself above religion’s laws, dogma, tradition, rules and rituals. For example, Jesus said, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.” In other words, the power and authority resides in us, and not in some external rule, code, tradition, creed, law, book, whatever… This is going to be a big transition, and we need to help each other along in this. For too long we’ve been made to mistrust what lies within us, and think of ourselves as bad, weak and powerless people.
