WHAT WOULD BE LEFT?
If we cleared all the gunk out of our various religions what would be left?
theological battles that detract
thinking in opposites ie. belief versus doubt
killing the spirit with tight behavior rules
wanting to change others
creating ‘wrongness’ in others
punishing and judgment of others who are different
You get the idea–GUNK!!
Let’s change the word ‘leftovers’ to ‘essence’
Many of us are trying to work with the essence and therefore it leaves us a little stranded when it comes to formal religion.
