The Essence of Spirituality

The essence of Spirituality and religion!

In my many years of study of comparative religion and reflection on the spiritual teachings that I believe God has revealed to all the Spiritual Teachers, I have come to the conclusion that they can be condensed to the Golden Rule. 

 I daily reflect on them  and ask my soul/spirit "what would happen if each human being that lives on earth became conscious and aware of the GOLDEN RULE and dedicated their life to their daily practice?  Of course we would have religious, political, economic, family and relationship harmony, unity and peace.   All children would have the opportunity and right to the best education available so they could develop their God-given talents and potentialities and use it in SERVICE TO HUMANITY. 

 My intention in sharing these quotations with you is to encourage you to reflect and act on them daily and contribute to building a spiritual civilization on earth.

                           The Golden Rule
Krishna: "Do not to others what ye do not wish done to yourself; and wish for others too what ye desire and long for, for yourself."

Buddha: "Hurt not others in ways that you yourself would find hurtful.

Zoroaster:  " Do not do unto others whatever is injurious to yourself:

 Moses:  "What is hateful to you, do not to your fellow man. That is the entire Law; all the rest is commentary."

Christ: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

 Muhammad: "No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself."

 Baha'u'llah:  "Blessed is he who preferreth his brother before himself."

Wish each one of us a peaceful and joyful spirit!
