Higher ideals where all are meant to be treated like an equal and with respect if they follow the golden rule. Service to ALL including yourself. I have a hard time with bullying in any form since I feel it is an ego parasitic behaviour and counter to what should be followed. You should be allowed to be different in any way you like as long as it is in symbiosis with the people and nature who are affected by your behaviour within reason. People should if able think outside the box and with a long time frame.
And I did not say better. I said I judge myself harder. It would probably be good for me to go easier on myself but that is not the ego/mind/spirit that I have at this time in my evolution. I am also tired of the limitations and processing power of the human brain. This biological hardware feels so slow and limiting.edit on 9-11-2012 by LittleByLittle because: Spellchecking
i agree to most of what you said, but like you mentioned our reasoning is limited, too much. we can never comprehend how far the effects of our action can ripple and spread. so we do need a law. A guide to make it easier. Law is not something to smother and limit only, it lets you free yourself from mundane things so that you go higher. You would agree that constantly watching over yourself would be draining you a lot.
The reason are reasoning is limited is because we are not going to the next step in human evolution and mostly because people are afraid of it and want to stay indoctrinated and small minded.
If you go by the law that ALL IS ONE then you can by reasoning come up with if any action is correct or not. It would probably be better if people was more careful with each other and unsure and acted gently to be sure they are not creating bad karma that will hurt themselves in the end. Do not hurt other people because in hurting other people you are hurting god(in a miniscule way but you are). Loving your brother and sister and pet/animals around you is loving god.
You can be an atheist and be a great lover of god without knowing it .
