Hell is Truth Seen To Late

Ms. Jane Anonymous Doe was there front and center when Father Divine (Reverend General Jealous Divine) put a curse on New York judge Justice Lewis J. Smith and a few days later the judge fell dead. Smith died from a heart attack but Father Divine claimed he did it with his special powers, you see, Father Divine claimed to be God and his followers believed it.

Ms. Jane Doe thought she was witnessing an extraordinary moment of powerful truth being enacted and so became a devout follower, giving all of her income and her home to the Father Divine Empire, she even gave up her family because they were against Father Divine. After many years of sacrifice and faithful giving, reduced to nothing but a corner in a commune, the rags on her back, penniless, overlooked and undervalued by newcomers into the Father Divine movement she realized that she had been bamboozled. Hell is truth seen too late and it was too late for Ms. Doe because she had given her life’s energy and all her resources to support a lie and was now dependent upon that lie for her daily bread and a roof over her head.  

Follow a lie and you will die with that lie and in the end face the harsh cutting truth of that which you have become. The keyword here is “follow”. Anytime you follow something you are putting yourself in jeopardy and danger of being taken for granted and this is why it’s best to always find your “own” way instead of taking someone else’s twisted word. You can’t get back the time and money wasted following a crook. 

Father Divine died a long time ago and so did Ms. Doe but we still have copycats today who want to build up crowds of blind followers and megabuck religious empires. Spiritual people are just as vulnerable as religious people it’s not just in the religious arena. We have all kinds of spiritual guru’s, self-proclaimed leaders, master teachers and leaders out here who prey on those trying to find the right path. Many of these people are no different than the fake hoodoo doctors of long ago who sold anything including dirt as a cure for poverty. Many people traveled miles to visit these so-called doctors, saved up hard to come by money in hopes of receiving a magical cure only to be disappointed when all they received was bottle of cooking oil disguised as some mystical healing holy ointment. Hell is truth seen too late. Too late to get your money back. 

The greatest teacher of spirituality cannot be found in a book, CD, expensive seminar or even on a website. The greatest teacher of spirituality is life. 

Always remember the bedrock of spirituality is freedom regardless of what path you choose. You have the freedom to reject or accept what is presented to you. You have the freedom to analyze, challenge, dissect and verify anything you hear, read or view before incorporating it into your spiritual path. If you get caught up in something that is not quite right remember your freedom in spirituality you have the freedom to walk away.
