“Secularized organized religions have become, in many cases, as calcified as other institutions that form the structure of our modern world. That’s why they are accepted here, and also why they are rejected. Our religious institutions have far too often become handmaidens of the status quo, while the genuine religious experience is anything but that.
True religion is by nature disruptive of what has been, giving birth to the eternally new. It is subtly revolutionary, for love by its nature is radical and ecstatic. It’s a force by which we burst out from what is old and calcified, into a higher mode of being. The internal experience of true religion is the process by which the human being breaks out of his/her bondage into full, free spirit. Within that freedom, there is no consciousness of slavery, nor respect for any structure that seeks to limit or control us.”
Marianne Williamson, in “Illuminata”
