THE UNITY OF RELIGION AND
Others look to
an impersonal Reality, to a multiplicity of Gods and to a variety of spiritual books or
teachings. Some religions are based upon meditation approaches to realize Truth. Others
are against them and consider that belief or prayer are sufficient. Some religions are
inclusive and try to draw other religions into them. Others are exclusive and try to stand
apart in their beliefs from other religions.
If these differences did not exist it would be difficult to explain why religions have had
so much trouble with each other through the course of history and why they still have
problems today in spite of all the improvements in communication. All the many religious
conflicts must go back to something more fundamental than semantics, or merely failing to
see that they are all saying the exact same thing in different words, or they would not be
so much of a problem.
