mutual respect

This world is going to  survive  longer  if  each  of  us  mutually

respect each others religion and rights to live.  If  governments

cannot  do  it  and  is  in  fact  exploiting  it  pitting  one  against

the other for their own selfish benefit, then we have  got  to  do

it.  Either  that  or  we  have  to  denounce  religion  completely.

You choose..

  1. Religion as a word originally meant “wisdom.” We will never extinquish religion from our lives. However, religious practice and beliefs are different and they are separate from that basic definition.

    Tolerance of another’s religious practice or beliefs may be equated with the concept of “granting of beingness” — to allow another to be who they are, to do what they do and to have the viewpoint they hold … just as we would want others to grant us.

    Unseen, unknown “Third Party” factors — who, not what — are behind all ongoing conflicts. Their stock in trade are lies, half-truths and untruths intended to create and continue the conflict and gain from the wreckage. The remedy is for both sides to recognize the Third Party by identifying WHO stands to gain from their conflict and WHAT are the lies, half-truths and untruths; then discover the real truths and build upon them.

  2. Since “wisdom” was the original definition of “religion,” we cannot extinguish it from our lives. However, religious practices and beliefs are separate and different from pure wisdom.

    To “grant beingness” to another’s practices and beliefs is to allow others to be, do and have what they wish about wisdom, just as we would want others to grant us.

    Ongoing conflicts always contain lies, half-truths and untruths, which are being fomented by unknown, unseen third parties. The remedy is to discover WHO is the third party — never a thing, always a WHO.

  3. i so agree with you. governments deliberately pit us against each other. every country’s ooliticians have a scapegoat they blame for every thing that goes wrong in their country- due to their unworthiness. its time we normal human beings should wake up and absolutely ignore them.
