The term “religion” is quite inadequate to describe the reciprocal bond and accessible intimacy between mankind and the Creator.
Within the narrative of biblical archetypes; Abraham did not practice a religion, he adhered to a “bond” (/brit), as did the Children of Israel when they renewed this bond and expanded it upon leaving the dominion of Pharaoh and before entering the Promised Land.
The term “religion” is a term of falsehood and exile produced by our disconnect, and the expelling of the Divine feminine (/ Shechina) as a byproduct of our building collective and individualistic egos.
In place of this bond we build "foreign God" paradigms that serve our cultural collective and individual egos. These “virtual/ synthetic” gods are projections of mankind’s deficiencies and serve ego, rather than humanity correcting themselves to draw intimately closer to “all there really is” (perception of the Creator/ KOl).
