PEACE PILGRIM TALKS ABOUT RELIGION
 
This is the way of peace: Overcome evil with good,
falsehood with truth, and hatred with love.
 

Religion is not an end in itself. Oneís union with God is the ultimate goal. There are so many religions because immature people tend to emphasize trivial differences instead of important likenesses. Differences between faiths lie in creeds and rituals rather than religious principles. 

How diverse the many paths seem to be at times, but do they not all come together eventually upon the same mountaintop? Are they not all striving for the same thing? 

If you are guided toward a faith, use it as a stepping stone to God, not as a barrier between yourself and Godís other children or as a tower to hold you aloft from others. If you are not guided toward a faith (or even if you are) seek God in the silence ó seek within. 

When we attempt to isolate another we only isolate ourselves. We are all Godís children and there are no favorites. God is revealed to all who seek; God speaks to all who will listen. Be still and know God. 


I am a deeply religious person, but I belong to no denomination. I follow the spirit of Godís law, not the letter of the law. One can become so attached to the outward symbols and structure of religion that one forgets its original intent ó to bring one closer to God. We can only gain access to the Kingdom of God by realizing it dwells within us as well as in all humanity. Know that we are all cells in the ocean of infinity, each contributing to the othersí welfare. 


You might say that science operates pragmatically and religion by divine guidance. If valid, they would reach the same conclusions but science would take a lot longer.
