Everyone needs to feel grounded. The feeling of imbalance and uncertainty underlies anxiety and distress. This fear holds most people within sphere’s of belief similar to a “comfort zone”.
People will ironically, accept and endure much hardship in order to stay within their sphere. Indeed this fundamental behavioral aspect of humans is the basis of all their institutions, culture, and doctrine.
Humans will defy advocates of change and these agents of change risk a charge of heresy, insanity, and worse.
Human history is predominantly tales of supremacism of paradigm and doctrine and the “civilizations” which won.
As humans have become increasingly inured to this material realm and allowed materialism to hold dominion over their thinking, they have inversely lost the ability to understand and perceive transcendental experience or spiritual phenomena.
Religion such that it is (with some exceptions), has falsely filled a void in people for the spiritual connection. In this, it has deceived and exploited and partnered with forces of materialism to engender fear more than love.
Continued indifference and acceptance of this situation is to further stray from the enlightened path of evolutionary advancement.
