    can religions become somewhat like blinders on a horse, or like the blind men and the elephant?


    that in the race to heaven, nirvana, shambala, they may not be seeing the whole picture and tredding upon one another as if in hell?


    is their a cure for such blindness?

    you can't put new wine in a used bottle
    the bottle will burst and all is lost

    the practice is gone and the meaning may also be lost

    if you don't get it.....say so
