THE UNITY OF RELIGION AND UNITY
One could argue
that if one looks deeply one will find the same Truth of Self-realization and
God-realization as the inner core of all religions, including those which appear to oppose
these ideas. But when one gives credence to such religions it is not these spiritual
practices one gives validity to but to the existing practices and hierarchies within the
religions as they are found today, to the religions such as the great majority of their
believers accept. Hence it is the unity spiritual practices that should be emphasized not
the formal structures of religions which are frequently opposed to them, but even this its
Spiritual practices, like any other actions must have their specific results. If we are
seeking to climb a mountain, several routes are possible, but not all are equally valid.
Moreover following a path that leads away from the mountain will never take us to the top,
whatever that path may be called.
