Like many watchers I am not a Muslim. Though I am given to understand that a Muslim is someone who believes in what I would call the “Undivided Creative Intelligence that underpins all reality”. As Guru Nanak said “There is One Reality. It’s Name is Truth” in describing the “Universal Source”.
So many people do believe. Unfortunately religion often gets so caught up with dogma and focuses on those things that divide people that it fails to notice, we all have a lot in common.
One life. One Source. One human race.
Humans interpret scripture sometimes to say, this way is the only way. Rather than this way is the way for me and other people exist too and they have some different beliefs to me…but if “God”/”Allah”/”Source” deemed them worthy of existence then to make any judgement against a person for their differences…whatever they may be…is kind of like saying, “God” did an imperfect job and my judgement makes me superior to something created.
I am not a Christian either. But when Jesus said, “Judge not lest ye be judged”, I think he was saying, if you choose to make a judgement over anything or anyone that exists as being less worthy than you, you create within yourself a conflict or division that we’re not intended to have.
It is that assumption of superiority required for us to judge another that creates enemies within and without and compromises our connection to the Source. No one wants to do that deep down. Judge others enough and you could end up perceiving the human race as your enemy and…well…if you opt out of the one human race, you’re sacrificing your own humanity as you go.
I don’t believe we are judged and sent to hell…but I do believe someone could lose their humanity to the extent that facing their “God” could become untenable.
We don’t know how this all works yet. I teach energy healing. I consider it neutral and it doesn’t have any place in my personal religious observations. But it’s very important to me.
I tend not to talk about religion (though I have studied it) for the same reason someone who wrote a book on meditation techniques wouldn’t include information on their religion as it wouldn’t be appropriate.
However, at a time when we are being told by mainstream media that there is a terrorist threat and Muslims want all non Muslims dead…I think your passion and eloquence speak for themselves. And many people…part of our one human race…feel like you do.
