There is no right answer,
There's no correct side
For all human endeavors
Are either survival
Or pride
And survival is a beast
Which cannot be tamed
And pride is the devil
That leaves you in flames

ERM,


As for survival, Some Of These People managed quite well.



And pride is the devil


So long as what you're proud of is within the law, surely that's ok.

A lot of people who read this will probably somehow like or agree with it but they will not consider what it really means and how it reflects on their own action and pridefulness.

Are you talking about man's laws or the law of love?

There are a lot of things that are "legal" that are immoral.

Love is hoping that your children don't die before you.
There is no greater love to speak of, IMO.

Agreed, absolutely.

Personally I would have swapped out "love" for life. Regardless, there is no pride in immorality, unless of course you have relinquished your own morality to conquer the immoral, perhaps.

There is a right answer. Humans can't figure it out with their own observations. It must be revealed to us.

And of course, as a human, you'd know this. =)

Wrong answer.

Since there was no original question, it wasn't even an answer to begin with.
So if that answers your question, then it was probably wrong too. =]

This is based on fear. Love assumes a few things from the foundation. We have what we need at every moment. Death is an illusion. Fear is based on perceived lack. In truth, all events are managed and one law removes the need for any others as restriction. The one law is outlined here better than I could ever say it with description:

Dhammapada Choices

Law has only one requirement, which is the same prerequisite of any virtue. For instance, to have peace, a person must be peaceful. To have faith, a person must be faithful. Faithful to what? Faithfulness is a dependent absolute. Either a person is faithful to the one law, or they are bound by all others. Love is its own prerequisite. If it is attained as a personal value held, then all other laws are null and void. The gift of liberation in life is the attainment of one virtue, which encompasses all others. You cannot know this until the goal is reached. Left without the one law applied, the gift of liberation is not realized, leaving the mind in a state of tyranny to the desire and fear that binds it.

What about the tyranny of New Age religions and philosophies?

No questions = No answers. Seems fair.

Really did appreciate your opening post. Can feel that vibe.

What about the tyranny of New Age religions and philosophies?


I am not sure where you are going with the question. It's pretty broad. Tyranny is allowing something to bind you into a restricted state. Freedom comes from overcoming the need for attachment. New Age religions and philosophies are no different than other traditions if fear is the motivation for action. It really depends on the specific philosophy. As for religion, the very word religion is poorly defined in the mind of most people. In the true sense of the word, religion is service to those in need. In the false sense of the word, religion represents an organized assembly of people around a collective covenant. The religion of the heart is simple. Love others. Nothing more. A true philosophy seeks to answer only one question: How can unity exist with multiplicity? Again, the answer is to love others, or pathos.

Love and Serve, better known as the highest Arete in philosophy and the only action leading to unity.
