Is the below statement true ?

He who is living in an illusion of religion will try to convert to his own, he who knows true religion knows that both are cut from the same cloth and will heal your soul.

We completely misunderstand the word ‘religion.’ It comes from the Latin. ‘ligare’ which means to tie or fasten. It is the same root as the word ligature or ligament. It means to be connected, tied. Doesn’t that remind you of the word ‘yoga’ which means to tie or yoke? To most of us a religion is set of beliefs and practices. But just as yoga is not a set of postures but a state of being – the state of union with the One – so the actual meaning of religion is to experience that state of being connected or tied to the One – to our origin and our Infinity. But the concept of religion has degenerated from the experience of union into a business where middlemen can collect money from people who want to know the truth of their own existence. It is a sham. It is a lie. The entire Piscean Age was built upon this lie: that you are separate from God and that you need someone else to intervene for you with that God who is “up there” so that you can be delivered from sin and redeemed. But actually the concept of redemption is also not understood. Again, from the Latin ‘redimere,’ it means to buy back again, to regain possession of what one has sold or lost. So what are we talking about? The soul has taken birth in this human form to attach itself back to the Infinity. Each of us is a part of God. The part of God in us is called the soul. So, we are here to merge with the totality. We are already One with God. We have simply forgotten. The experience of remembering is what we call redemption. It is regaining the knowledge, with which we were all born, that we are one with the One. All ‘religions’ are of the past. In the future, there will be no such thing as religion. The concept of middlemen: priests and rabbis, etc. will seem absurd. Each of us will stand as sovereign spiritual, self-sensory human beings consciously connected in the web of all existence.
