THE SPIRITUAL GOLDEN RULE

What I do know is that limiting God to one form or interpretation ensures that the interpretation will likely be wrong, and as history has proven, potentiates that the interpretation will be used for wrong — to institutionalize and therefore co-opt the individual relationship with God.

If you believe that you know God, you really do not. If you seek to know you as God, you really might!

The Spiritual Golden Rule: Thou shall not force spirituality, religion, or dogma on others. Treat all pathways to the peak of enlightenment with kindness, so long as they also practice The Golden Rule.

“Love the world as your own self, then you can truly care for all things. Look, it cannot be seen, it is beyond form. Listen, it cannot be heard, it is beyond sound. Grasp, it cannot be held. It is intangible. These three are indefinable. Therefore they are joined in one. From above, it is not bright, from below it is not dark, an unbroken thread beyond description. It returns to nothingness. The form of the formless, the image of the imageless, it is called indefinable and beyond imagination. Stand before it, and there is no beginning. Follow it, and there is no end. Stay with the ancient Tao. Move with the present. Knowing the ancient beginning, is the essence of Tao.” ~ Tao Te Ching, Lao Te Zu
