Nothing changes but our own #reality & we can control those changes. #earthly #Spirituality #Enlightenment
19 Take a hint from the pluralism of Hinduism and let Biblical accounts to coexist with science. Allow me to argue that the two creation stories in Genesis open that door a crack.

God is light: Is this literal or a metaphor or both?

It’s like literalists use legos to build their reality. If, like beauty or poetry, it doesn’t fit a mold, it can’t be of use. Problem is, who’s mold to use?

 18 Einstein & Religion  Einstein ends his discussion of religion with the following quote: “A contemporary has rightly said that the only deeply religious people of our largely materialistic age are the earnest men of research.” What do you think?

Religion and science go together? Einstein felt scientists were some of the most religious people out there. http://bit.ly/2ywr5RD
  18 Einstein & Religion  

Einstein believed that everything people do or think results from the satisfaction of needs or the escape from pain. Do you?

Except for enlightened few, everything people do or think is the result of escaping pain or seeking satisfaction
  18 Einstein & Religion  Einstein believed the first level of religion, found among primitive people, is dominated by fear. Do you?

Pretty much universal, isn’t it? More http://bit.ly/2zgXr6r
  18 Einstein & Religion Einstein believed that the second level of religion, civilized, is moral coming from the need for guidance in a fallible world. This need led to the development of a moral idea of God “who protects, decides, rewards, and punishes.” What do you think?

Einstein believes that both fear-based and moral religions (usually combined) developed an anthropomorphic God who has human characteristics.

According to Einstein: Moral Uncertainty + a Fallible World = an Anthropomorphic God http://bit.ly/2zgXr6r
  18 Einstein & Religion  

Einstein believed that only “exceptionally gifted individuals or especially noble communities” really rise above the fear-based and moral levels of religion to the “cosmic religious sense.”

Even Einstein allowed for the existence of enlightened individuals and communities. http://bit.ly/2zgXr6r
