I am sure you experienced this in the past:
You are having a friendly conversation with a friend until you touch on a spiritual or religious topic.
Somehow the conversation gets out of hand and you end up having an argument.
You suddenly get this feeling that you live worlds apart and you can’t see how to connect with that person anymore.
You probably realize that many wars on this planet have been fought in the name of god or the absolute.
Do you want an alternative?
Is there way to solve this ongoing human dilemma.
If spiritual development is about expanding your sense of inner freedom, love and unity, why is there so much religious and spiritual intolerance?
Forget about trying to solve a religion or your friend’s ideas!
Solve this dilemma in you first.
How do you solve this dilemma?
It is is very simple:
Any time you disagree with a friend, say something like:
“Look, it seems that we do have different opinions on this topic and you know what? It’s okay. It is okay to see the same reality from different angles. Trying to understand and perceive your point of view is exciting and challenging because it stretches my mind. I am really glad with can have this conversation.”
This is called tolerance.
It is the key of any discussion or forum.
You accept and embrace the fact that difference of opinion and experiences are okay.
Once you solve this dilemma within your “microcosm”, you are free.
It is such an exhilarating feeling when you realize that you don’t have to be right!It is okay to let go!You don’t have to convince anyone!
The key to solve spiritual conflicts is to be able to experience this freeing mind set truly.
If you take this one step further, you end up with this statement:
Manifestation has many truths!
The fact that your temple is round or square does not matter!
What matters is that you have some control over what you want for yourself and little or no control over what other people want for themselves.
Their lives, beliefs and spiritual aspirations are in their hands.
It is their choice and their birth right to have control over what they want to believe.
There is an infinite number of paths leading to the same spiritual unity.
The totality of humankind is right!
This is spiritual synergy:
A place where everyone wins!
