It's time that a few people admitted that religion has been the greatest limitation on human development since politics!

Religion, by it's very nature, it separatist. It must lead you on it's own path or else you would stop following it, and it must have guidelines which you have to submit to, or else you will not reach God.

Tolerance builds acceptance. Love builds Tolerance.

If we all accepted that we were different, rather than arguing over who is Best, we would surely come to know World Peace. It is up to each and every one of you, except Morpheus, to help guide the planet in this direction.

Remember, Love creates Tolerance, and Tolerance leads to Acceptance.

God bless

None of us is God in any way which which makes sense. Not in a Christian, Islamic, Hindu or Buddhist way.

There can be no unity in an idea which is nonsensical to some and blasphemous to others.

IMO the is nothing more blasphemous than the idea that we have to be more than just truly human, I consider it to be a kind of madness.

If one does not believe they are God then they probably will one day. The reality of the situation dawns on you. You can be religious and have faith, but eventually the God you believe in TURNS into your own self. I know, it happened to me. Reality is huge. You can get away with denying you are God for eons. But eventually reality ends up being you again, having gone full circle.

Do you what the difference between Christ Consciousness and Cosmic Consciousness is?

Christ Consciousness is the belief that we are God, all knowing, all powerful beings. It has many downsides though. Egocentric humans, overconfidence, stubbornness to change and accept new teachings, and in the extreme is the reason for the many messiahs roaming earth right now (in psych wards).
Christ Consciousness teaches us that might only get us as far as being crucified in a world for being so blinded to what else is around us.

But Cosmic Consciousness has no downsides to it.
Cosmic Consciousness is the belief of BALANCE and ultimate UNITY that
everything is one and interconnected and that we are a part of God. NOT GOD, but a part of. We realize the humbling aspect the divinity of the entire universe and the other beings other than us, but we also realize our own innate power.
We are a part of everything, we are powerful, but we are also separate beings in physical bodies and this is accepted... not looked down on.

If you want to know my opinion, it's that if you go too long thinking you are some important Almighty god and that you put yourself on that pedestal of ego and insult your human side, you are only leading yourself IN a circle.

Hello Honza,
Wish to agree completely with you.
Stop hurting each other and put a massive final stop to rape.
What a filthy disgusting evil practice.
Of course karma will be waiting,no crying as you get yours.
In pure light and truth.
Krishna.

Ah, perhaps. But humanity is a thing of diversity. Our uniqueness of language, culture, and custom gives us a way to express ourselves. If a single world religion became top dog and every person was born and raised in it, there would still be other religions, since some folks would see the presence of a single religion as a bad thing... some people only feel purposeful when they strive against the masses.

The heroic tendency of humanity would ensure religion doesn't stay uniform.

Moses, Luther, Buddha, Muhammad.

Maybe I'm just a little cynical
