Followers of the popular religions today appear to be confused about right and wrong, and some of the faithful find themselves on the wrong side of the law. The problems are numerous, but can be traced to a single cause. All of the ancient Holy Texts composed in Hebrew, Aramaic, Arabic, Sanskrit, and so on, are guidebooks Our Father in Heaven gave us, but unfortunately, they are not translated correctly. They are wide of the mark, abhorrent, and when the texts are translated correctly, meditation, non-violence, and non-discrimination is promoted, and followers are in line with the law of the land and with God.
The Holy Texts of the Bible are just like those of the Upanishads, the Quran, the Avesta, and so on. None of the ancient spiritual texts of the world promotes hurting any creature living upon the same air you do. They say to be kind to anyone, and to be as helpful as you would a best friend. Those are principles to meditate upon, and act upon, if there is an interest in spending time with the Holy Father in Heaven.
Promoted in the false religions of today are numerous rules and regulations not found in the Holy Texts. There are no rules about one type of meat being better for eating than another is, or about not eating meat on particular days, because the rule is not harming any living breathing creature. A vegetarian diet is the rule if one is interested in having an earthly body, clean enough for the Divine One to enter.
The Holy Text does not promote visiting Mecca, or Bethlehem, bathing in the Ganges, praying in this or that temple or church, because the Holy Temple is Space. The Holy Text says to be dressed when engaged in religious activities, but does not say that women need to wear headscarves, or be subservient to men. It says to be kind and helpful to one another, no matter the sex, sexual or religious preference, color of skin, whatever.
Aleister Crowley laid down the Law of Thelema in 1904. It states, “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. Love is the law, love under will. There is no law beyond Do what thou wilt.” Yes, the Law is close to the path, but if I may add a little… how about this? “If it harms no living creature, do what thou wilt. Love is the law, non-discrimination, and meditation.”
Here is a portion of the Veda for Meditation.
