THE UNITY OF RELIGION AND
to read spirituality into religious symbols and doctrines can do so everywhere. Does this
mean that such inner meanings were always intended, that all these teachings must be equal
or that all these teachers were enlightened? If so why should we stop merely with the
predominant religions of the world?
We can read
enlightenment into any of the aspirations of humanity. Some synthesizers have gone so far
as to read mysticism into Karl Marx, in which case spirituality loses its meaning
altogether and becomes equitable with any sort of idealism or noble sentiment.
Such synthesis unites everything by blurring any distinction
of higher and lower teachings, which may end up denying the value of the spiritual path
