I am constantly reminded, by various posts in the CR forums, of how many of us: theist, pagan, mystic, Wiccan, Jew, Christian, Muslim, Hindu, etc - can often share profound similarities in how we perceive the Divine - our paths differing simply in how we explore from this perspective. The populist Buddhist position seems more of evasion - or disinterest - in the concept, rather than any plain refutation. However, is there really any spiritual truth of differing paths observing the works of the same God, and simply dressing the Divine in individual cultural concepts - just as we might all perceive the same sky, but attach different words and meanings to it. Or is this all a happy hippy pipe dream, that fails to appreciate the important nuances of societial differences, and - whether one believes that God has an objective or subjective existence - the constructs are simply too different to be the same thing? Is there one God, whom we all perceive in our own unique and individual ways? Or is it nothing more than wishy-washy inclusivism, ignorantly dimissing rich cultural differences? A starter for discussion.
