Is mysticism the key to unity?
All religions have stories that have been related to people for centuries. These stories help people make sense of the world in which they live, give them meaning to their lives, and teach them how to cope by providing guidelines for dealing with a universe that can be hostile.
All Religions of the world focus on
humankind's relationship to nature and the living world. It promotes a respect
for nature and compassion for living beings. Religions uniformly acknowledge
that humankind depends on nature for its own survival.
Religions in the West and the East are based on the desire to obtain spirituality and there may be much we can teach and learn from one another.
Theoretically, there are three possibilities that exist in terms of determining which religion is the right path to God.
1. All are the incorrect path leading to God.
2. Only one is the correct path that leads to God.
3. All are correct in part, and ultimately as a whole, they lead to finding the path to God.
Our limited view of the world hinders a clear vision. Self-centered attachment to views is the source of suffering and causes us to live at the expense of others. This further leads to cultural and national disharmony.
For now we see through a glass,
but then face to face: now I know in part;
but then shall I know even as also I am known.”
1 Corinthians 13:12
