On the other hand, I'm convinced that the problem with Religion is that people think they know what the end of it is (its final purpose) when the vast majority of people have no reason to think they know that kind of thing. Great mystics in every religious tradition have recognized that the purpose of Religion cannot be given at second-hand, that the aim of Religion cannot be disclosed in words or through the understanding. Instead, only experience will do. So I like what I read tonight on this website:
Later I understood the meaning of spirituality and came to the conclusion that it is as discardable as dishwater. Therefore I am in no way concerned with spirituality.
So here's my solution: Education needs to reunify under a single, "higher" aim: no amount of formal degrees can guarantee that an educator has undergone the liberating, transformative experience that ought to be the purpose and final aim of education. And Religion needs to forget about things like "salvation," "awakening," "enlightenment," and so on. Religion needs to reclaim mystery as its final phase: or at least, Religion needs to stop speaking of what comes at the "end."
Ho hum. Just typing aloud here.
