“Religion cannot be bestowed, received, loaned, learned, or lost. It is a personal experience which grows proportionally to the growing quest for final values.” [UB 1095:02]
Thought Adjuster: “The above statement may come as a shocker to many of you because what they claim to be their religious ‘experience’ merely consists of old stereotypes of crystalized credos. Such non-experiential religions fail to quench the soul’s thirst for the sharing of a unique and rewarding personal relationship with Its Maker.
“As well, there are those who feel let down by religious beliefs that inadequately answer some crucial existential questions while asserting a monopoly on the Truth but being ill-equipped to make good on their audacious claims.
“Genuine religion yields a transformative personal experience. Once a soul gets a taste of such a fulfilling connection, it has found a reliable starting gate for its eternal evolution.
“How do you amplify your religious experience? It will not happen to those who are passively expecting for it to happen on its own. It takes intention, determination, and a constant output of personal effort. By setting the sails of your soul in the refreshing spiritual trade-winds fueled by the values of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness, you will undoubtedly be propelled ‘Godward’ through hands-on navigational experience—recording in your travel log myriads of enriching happenstances, a personal knowingness that will be forever yours to keep and treasure.
“You cannot get to know God by mere hearsay, as rumors are often fraught with subjective interpretations or unrealistic embellishments. However, you definitely can get to know God through personal interaction. When your outreach is heartfelt, you get His undivided attention and cannot but be moved deeply by the unprecedented emotional well-being that arises within you.”
