Rob Kall's passion of a "bottom-up" world was very much instrumental in my deciding to write on OpEd News. In his philosophy, I heard: "It begins with YOU!"

That's bottom up! It begins in you and me.

Religion and God are also not top-down. They are in you. This is why a physicist claims that the center of the universe is everywhere and its periphery nowhere. The center is where ever you are, where ever Rob Kall is and where I am writing in Maine.

Nor is true religion a belief system. It is an evolutionary process. How it is presented can spark a devolutionary state or an evolutionary one. In our current state in western civilization, it has been devolutionary.

In saying devolutionary, I do want to comment that in using the term, I am speaking to an evolution (a manifestation of a potential) that is not progressive. Having cars and jet planes does not cut it in defining our evolution. Growing wings to fly IS evolutionary in my opinion.

This angers people, both religious in the traditional sense (i.e., belonging to an institutionalized belief system) and those that call themselves atheist (i.e., a-theistic or not following a theism).

Why do my words anger them? It is because they are both hanging onto a philosophy that is killing us; and the planet. (Some of my past articles get into this).

This is precisely why I write often about the virgin birth. We have to get past ourselves.

The virgin birth is NOT what you think it is. It is not a literal birth. It is a an emptiness of mind that allows one to conceive a Christ (or other name such as Buddha). If you go into a virgin state of mind, you will discard all I am saying because you will discard all thought. So, all I'm saying is: "try this process of emptying". Don't believe it, become it and see for yourself. (This is the meaning of belly dance, which signifies the removal of veils until one becomes revealed in one's nakedness).

Yet, realize that after several years of conditioning, becoming virgin is not an easy task. In the virgin state you will be mindless and beyond the conditioning of school, media and parents. In the virgin state, you won't even label yourself as virgin. If you label yourself, you are no longer virgin. It is upon the utterance of the word (in Hindu, OM, the sound of creation that emanates from the depths of silence) that division occurs. (Read Genesis 1:2 for a metaphorical understanding of our original State of Virginia!).

As I have said in past articles, Christ in mystic Christianity is known as the evolutionary potential of human beings as well as all that live in the natural world. Becoming empty of conditioning is to return to the Virgin State of Being!

Christ is thus beyond the institution of Christianity. Christ embraces all peoples, creatures, plants and planets worshiping their foundations in their own way throughout the world. Whether one classifies one's self as Atheist, Pagan, Jew, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu or Taoist, we are filled with Christ, the evolutionary potential within us.

This is a true bottom-up understanding of Christ. Its also a revelation of who you are beyond the conditioning you have been under since you were a baby. In your deepest psychological and spiritual nudity, you are That.

At NO time is this return to a "virgin" mindset more important than today. Yet, it is also a dangerous venture for you to take. It is dangerous for the same reason that the Jews and Romans collided in trying to kill the Christ child (this story was all over the place in those times, not just the birth of the Divine Child).

Becoming virgin is simply to become void of everything you were taught since you emerged from your mother's womb.

And you wonder why the myths of ancient times had Mothers like Mary having to hide their child due to the Empire and Church that want to kill Him? How many of us stifle our intuition due to it not being "of the status quo?"
