This is not to say that everybody “has to be the same thing”, but rather that people might help themselves if they could accept that there are people in this world that don’t share the same spiritual beliefs. Because this is a fact. And then, just, basically, if everyone went about their own spiritual business as if it’s a sacred, private thing that’s above being rammed where it isn’t wanted. The Divine Name is not to be treated with this disgusting sort of belligerence, to be thrown around and shoved down a throat. At least, that’s my opinion.
This is the tricky thing about a common morality as opposed to a collective spirituality: to one form of spiritual belief, a moral code may be as foundational as it is irrelevant to another. So, in my opinion, again, it seems that it’s necessary to embrace a collective spirituality, to ensure cohesion in society, to sustain communities of diverse ideas and to develop tolerance for ephemera that don’t all originate in the same person’s head. Anyway, the emerald.
