Religion Takes Many Forms
Religion takes many forms,
and that is the great clue to the great confusion.
Form (visible shape/relative display) is exoteric;
it’s intended for the many, and is outer confusion.
Essence (ultimate truth) is esoteric;
it’s for the few who get it, and is inner revelation.
Form is the theory.
Essence is the culmination of realisation, and is our actual reality.
In form, there is much disagreement.
In essence, there is no disagreement.
Form is separation.
Essence is unity.
Form is making something out of emptiness.
Essence is emptiness.
Form pulls the wool over our I’s.
Essence unveils the I.
