The problem with Bogs is that you can get sucked down and then your in big trouble
Unfortunately you can become trapped in dogma and you can't rely on Religion you pull you out....

we are all unequal. there is no agreed definition of what is a religious dead end or not, there is no one size fits all standard and no-one qualified to enforce it. we're all different.

I agree with you that "there is no one size fits all standard and no one qualified to enforce it. We're all different."

Well said.

You are a master of koan-like paradox.

The path of PERFECT freedom is paradoxically CHOICELESS. So much for "free will". I like koan-like paradoxes as well.

The only ' free will ' we have is the choice to think we have ' Free will '

So what happens with "free will", in your opinion, when one goes beyond thinking ?

What do you mean by ' beyond thinking ' SW?. Pure Awareness or something different...
