    My tantric sisters and brothers are the Sufi's, the gnostic and mystic Christians and Jews, the tantric Hindu's, tantric Buddhists and tantric Jains and Sikhs and all people who are not the enemy of universalism and those who are opposed to dogmatic or conservative supressive religiousness which creates unnatural boundaries between communities.

    There is much bigotry and hatred in this world against universalist ideologies because they are seen as a threat to entrenched dogmatic doctrines. Their organisations are often persecuted or publicly smeared for all sorts of reasons.

    There is not much to discuss here, but I wanted this off my chest, all those with the spirit of love and universalism are my true brothes and sisters, the Modi's and the Isis-folk of this world are not.

    God is love! And Love is the core of all God’s teachings. It’s a shame that most Christians that I know don’t see Muslims or Buddhists, etc, as fellow brothers/sisters I’m God...

    This forum is organized around the in my eyes faulty concept of so-called 'religions' and that is how most people unfortunately still think. Religions are in their eyes (mainly) fixed belief-systems, as opposed to science which is tied to universal physical laws and to research and experimentation.

    Different ideologies created in the past have tried to break with that faulty concept by stressing the universality of the spiritual science and the spiritual cult.

    Sufism, Gnosticism, Buddhism, Christian and Jewish mystics and all sorts of tantric type ideologies have ignored or broken through the artificial boundaries made by religious ideologists again and again.
    But still the concept of religion is being upheld by a large majority of scholars.

    Great guru's or spiritual teachers like Jesus, Shiva and Krishna have by-passed the elements that build religions by focussing totally on the tantric or mystic side of spirituality which is based on experimentation and discovery and is totally universal in character. Even Muhammed tried to cut away religious superstitious concepts and tried to create a more tantric type ideology that is more universal.

    The majority of people however have not yet been able to reach that point, that superb insight. And religious ideologists have always been there to help keep them ignorant. Despite the great efforts of teachers like Jesus, the religious paradigm has always held out, as it had done for many thousands of years from the time our ancestors still lived in caves and tried to appease the cruel forces or nature by offering and sacrificing to their different pagan gods.

    It's not all black and white though, many traditions have to some extent incorporated certain tantric practices while still staying embedded in the religious frame with its religious practices and myths.
    New age and perhaps also Scientology are attempts to radically break with that religious frame in a Western context.
    But when it comes to partitioning ideologies most people still fall back to the idea of religious blocks, where in fact those blocks are more cultural and historical in nature than pertaining to actual spiritual practice.
    This is what makes me feel this forum is old-fashioned or outdated in its set-up.

    In the world of the more highly educated religion has become controversial and not without its valid reasons.
