The Switcheroo

God is not dead, just alienated!

 We are all God having a human experience. With rare exceptions however, the closest we “mortals” come to that realization is to think that we are having experiences of God.  When we do have one of these experiences of God, the representatives of organized religions are there to interpret its meaning for us.  However, they do not lead us closer to our God identity, but rather further from it. Indeed they use their “God given” authority to convince us that our experiences are of their God.  The effect of this switcheroo is that instead of embracing our Godness, along with the responsibility, sovereignty and power that accompanies it, we deny it and instead accept the authority of the church’s God. I call this process the alienation of God.

Nietzsche posited that God is dead, killed by rationalism, while Eli Weisel said of the Nazi’s that they killed the God in themselves.  I believe that God is not dead, just alienated, and it is alienated not principally by rationalistic and scientific thought, but by the very institutions and individuals that have ostensibly been responsible for its promulgation, organized religion and its clergy!

It is not an accident that Jesus Christ was likened to a shepherd, and his followers to a flock of sheep.  People who have been alienated from their God nature and instead accept and follow a deity are like sheep.  Shorn of their own God nature, they have no center of authority and intention, no individuality.  Fleeced, they need a leader and once having found one, they will follow him off a cliff.  This transformation of people into sheeple is a consequence of this alienation from their God identity, the alienation of God.

By the same token, every inhuman thought, every inhuman act is the consequence of this alienation of God.  Child soldiers and the men who would make them that way, polluters of the environment, priests that practice human sacrifice, the witch hunters of the Inquisition – all are people who kill in the name of God because they have been alienated from the God in themselves.

About Dr. Jeffrey Eisen, Ph.D.

The creation of PsychoNoetics is the life's work of Dr. Jeffrey S. Eisen, an academically trained psychologist and psychotherapist. Dr. Eisen's discoveries brought him to a breakthrough expansion of Freud's id, ego and super-ego structural model of the psyche called the Enoe, and a revolutionary vision of the Self-Illuminated Human. Dr. Eisen is a gifted speaker, facilitator and author of hundreds of unpublished essays, four books, and a forthcoming one titled The De-Programmed Human. Playing 20 Questions With God, An Introduction to the Clearing Path of PsychoNoetics is both an engaging overview of the development of PsychoNoetics, and a comprehensive guide to applying it to your life. Oneness Perceived, A Window Into Enlightenment is a monumental body of work that attempts a unified field theory from the viewpoint of nonduality with academic precision and rigor, and stands to become a key reference within the alternative scientific community. He has appeared in an EnlightenNext webinar with Ken Wilber, Deepak Chopra, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Brian Robertson, and Andrew Cohen, recorded online interviews with EnlightenNext Magazine, and collaborated with the first director of the Institute of Noetic Science (IONS) who inspired the name PsychoNoetics.

    Interesting analysis. I think organized religions tend to drive away people when things such as gay marriage become more widely accepted among the populace. Religion bans it, organized religion condemns it, but then they come off looking somewhat bigoted as it becomes more accepted among everyone else. But on the flip side, if an organized religion changes its viewpoint on something like that, then those who believed form the start end up not believing because their organized religion compromised their beliefs. So we either judge people in the name of God because an organized religion says so, which drives potential customers away from religion, or an organized religion accepts what’s “cool” to the public, but then drives away the current customers.
