    Holiness versus Wholeness

    It is indeed ironic that the religions of the world that call others "unholy", are themselves - set apart - separate - not part of the whole, therefore they are by their very nature "un-wholly" (not part of the whole).

    Judaism and Christianity promote the idea of holiness as being "set apart" from the world (the whole), thus the foundation set for unity is separateness, instead of wholeness.

    Never trust anything you are afraid to question ~

    To know oneself is to know the universe...


    Live Fully...Love Extravagantly...For the sake of Goodness

    Be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. Matt.10:16

    Come let us reason together...Isa.1:18

    I think that is a profound insight, my dear!

    The entire western spiritual tradition has been formed around the concept of "us and them" - and if to be "holy" means to be "separate from the world" how then can we see God in the world he made? How then can we be one with the All In All?
    • Skepticism is the antiseptic of the mind.
    • Remember why we debate. We have nothing to lose but the errors we hold. Who but a stubborn fool would hold to errors once they have been exposed?
