Atheists Beware!

“Atheism is a disease of the soul,
before it becomes an error of the understanding.”
~ Plato
“Small amounts of philosophy lead to atheism,
but larger amounts bring us back to God.”
~ Francis Bacon
“The Atheist is God playing at hide and seek with Himself;
but is the Theist any other?
Well, perhaps; for he has seen the shadow of God and clutched at it.”
~ Sri Aurobindo
The worst moment for the atheist
is when he is really thankful
and has nobody to thank.                    
~ Dante Gabriel Rossetti
“Atheism is a non-prophet organization”
~ George Carlin




We reify what we resist.

And as we persist in resisting,

We attract and become what we resist.

So atheists, beware!

In vehemently denying Divinity,
you are reifying and deifying “God”.

And as you opine, you’re becoming Divine.

    “What you resist persists
    – Carl Jung

    To explain Jung’s point by way of example… I say, “I’m not going to have a cigarette today, I’m never going to smoke ever again.” Far from moving my thoughts away from smoking, I am focusing all my attention on the subject of smoking, even though in a negative way.”

    Sid, thanks much for aptly adding to the message of this poem.

    After reading your comment I searched on line for “What you resist persists.” According to Dr. Google, it is possible that those words were mis-attributed to Jung by the movie “The Secret”, though he probably would have agreed with them.

    Jung did say this: “We cannot change anything until we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses.”

    If anyone reading these comments knows the correct original source of “What you resist persists.” please let me know. So far, my research (and memory) suggest that those words were first popularized in the US in the 1970’s by Werner Erhard and est. Thereafter, they were used many times without attribution to Jung, or anyone else, even by such prominent authors as Eckhard Tolle and Donald Michael Walsch, in a ‘conversation with God’.

    In all events, whoever first used those four words, I’ll give the last word to Lao Tzu, who said:
    “Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”
