A dangerous consequence of any religion (the Shards not excepted) is that crazed fanatics sometimes misuse religion to say, "The 'unbelievers' are bad, so we must dispose of them (genocide/religiocide), in the same way we'd dispose of any other vermin".
Well, that's happened much too often in the history of mankind, and it's high time we stopped. It's not a question of going out and converting poor unfortunates who have not seen 'The Light'. It's not a question of murdering those that we consider to be 'inferior life forms'.
It's time to see ALL our brothers and sisters, as simply in different phases of their spiritual development.
Different, yes, but still
with so very much in common. The
collective consciousness of the entire human race, resides inside each
and every one of us.
