Thinking tonight about how vitally important religion is for so many people in this world. All of the great traditions have sheltered so many hurting and afraid people for thousands of years. This is worth remembering when we feel the (rightful) need to tear it down or take it apart in pursuit of truth, beauty, and love.

In that, I think I’m wondering if and how religion can be seen as a bed of flowers to be weeded as opposed to a few flowers to be picked out of a bed of weeds. Thoughts?

@vishnu I think the non dualist approach is the best. I think at this present time religion isn't used for what it was intended for. That being a way to deepen our relationship with the consciousness of the universe. In by doing that we come to a better understanding of ourselves and those people places and things around us. I think that at this time religion is what Marx referenced it as "the opiate of the people". As in relieves the pain of what we refuse to accept and understand.
