Someone, maybe many others, said that the idea of "live and lets live" is cultic because it is wrong. The person, from her hub, I think she is a Christain. She said is wrong because it means to stop preaching the truth of the bible. I just don't get it.
I think that a person who thinks 'live and let live' is cultic is really just living in fear thinking that there is only 'one right' and 'one wrong'. They don't mean to be that way they are just victims to their environments....I have a lot of family who believe that way and it just takes a lot of time and understanding to help them see differently
In the way you are thinking you are correct, but this is spirituality we are talking about or poetry or parables,they have depth and need to be interpreted properly. Here again I am sure you can see there are atheists, agnostics and believers. Where God or spirituality is concerned words are limited ,it all depends on the human consciousness level.
The human is divided into different categories or consciouses or awareness level and each believes, thinks differently .The Holy Vedas puts the Human species as a couple of thousand as there are many such categories in us. Each will interpret differently .
Your point is valid; more valid than most would care to admit. The problem is the communication lexis, not the material involved. Because we can share things such as thoughts, we can precisely validate the accuracy of its communication. However, not all things originate in thought, some originate in feeling or experience. Because we cannot 'share' feelings or experiences, we must rely on the limited vocabulary available to us. This will always present problems. I must give you credit though because your point is and always will be valid.
The ying yang yang is inevitable in this dimension as humans. Only after enlightenment can one understood the context properly, God is a personal experience. There are many consciouses levels, each will interpret differently and then many will understand very clearly.
I repeat explain chi or prana what yogis, mystics martial artists meaning humans have know for a very long time.Look it up please.
It's a concept being spoken, not a commandment...regardless of which religion it comes from. Concepts don't break down in scientific form as easily and will always appear to have some inconsistencies because they are not meant to be obeyed so much as just meant to spark a new way of seeing things.....
In answer to your question, no. If you do not understand the concept, I will reword it into a commandment. It may be that you respond better to external than internal regulation since you desire communication that lacks the probability of misunderstandings.....It means that we should consider the experiences of all beings as important as we do our own. Considering this, we should attempt to effect a positive experience on our surroundings. Undoubtedly, you will find error in this statement as well since the idea of 'positive' is subjective. It might be helpful to note, however, that such subjectivity and inconsistency can be found in all aspects of communication so long as the subjects involved are imperfect.
My favorite responce to this was made by a comedian.
I would do onto others as I do onto myself, but I don't think people would like it too much when I tried to jerk them off! hey, I'm just trying to spread the love! I guess I took do onto others as you do onto yourself a little to seriously!! LOL!!!
I think laws are made based on acceptable moral standards. Secondly, laws are not made for insane people so anyone that thinks of killing others because he wants others to kill him must be insane. It is not normal. Therefore, " do unto others... " is the golden rule which virtually all religious founders thought. Those that oppose it as cultic claim it will stop them from preaching and converting people to their. That was the situation I asked the question not when insanity is involved or out of order.
Should being kind to others be the most important thing in our lives?Some religious people say that you don't have to do good to other people but simply believe a set of doctrines in order to be right with God. Other...
