    It is so difficult to go beyond our limited human reasoning...
    Religion, Science, Philosophy... all, in the end, dwell in the realm of the beliefs and perspectives of said individual... An authoritative figure, a scholar...

    Please allow me to rephrase...

    There are tribes in Africa, in the Amazon and other places that still today practice human sacrifice to appease their gods.

    This is part of their religion belief.

    Is that right or is that wrong?

    Do we really need the labeling?
    What is it about labeling that gives us a false sense of ownership, or control?

    I wrote a related hub, more in the sense of our never ending mission of seeking the truth: http://crazygata.hubpages.com/hub/No-ne … -just-flow

    In regards to measuring kindness, well, I don't really have an answer to that except that I'm yet to see that ruler...

    Have an awesome day and thank you for inspiring me to share.

    If one looks closely at the Buddha's original teaching, one discoveres a different meaning of the word "right." Right is not the opposite of wrong. In fact, the notion of good vs. bad is, itself, a harmful and ineffective notion.

    Rather, effective action is action that has the desired effect. In Buddhism, the direction is towards the elimination of suffering. That which is intended to eliminate suffering, and does so, is effective. Keep doing it!

    Love is the intention that we all be free from suffering.

    Awareness and balance are what we can practice to live in ways that reduce suffering.

    Wisdom is understanding and action that reduce or eliminate suffering, and cultivate peace, joy, and Loving Awareness.

    Awareness, harmless and healing intent towards ourselves and all beings, and a willingness to see the actual results of our actions and become more skillful are all key.
