Before you criticize, you have to recognize. The "City" doesnt exist, remember? Dont be inconsistent.

The details are in the particular, the universal principle is in the general.

I don't judge posters.

I am least bothered if you or if anyone else reads my posts or not.

Good if you read my posts, good if you don't read my posts.

I am ok with both aspects given my high degree of equanimity in these matters.

On my part, I scrutinize every post, including yours, as a matter of intellectual interest since I have a universal outlook.

Grow up, you're so parochial, fanatical, biased, immature, unclassy, impoverished, unfair and sub-intellectual.

Bye.

The general is the culmination of the quantitative and the qualitative aspects and exists as principle.

Yeah!

Cleanliness begins at home - there comes a point in time when sensitive and intelligent persons expose the evil in their own life, family, cult or community. It's a relief to throw away one evil but it's a disaster to jump from the frying pan into the fire when say for example after quitting an ancestral evil one adopts another evil disguised as good and then after immense suffering and tragic personal losses the veil of delusion further lifts and the adopted evil is also thrown away. I don't care about good or bad. I am most concerned with truth experienced subjectively and expressed objectively or with outright objective evidence.

FLASH NEWS:
Despite the many mumbo jumbos you can read on Quran, Islam is a monotheistic religion. There is not one single verse that point out towards monolatrism.
rabbee: the worship of hasatan, is a monotheistic religion.

the worship of baal hamolech, is a monotheistic religion also.

the worship of halooseefer, is also a monotheistic religion.

and you have no guarantee, that all the sunni, shiite, or alwaite, hamas, hezbolla, fatah, palestinean, and other muslim cults, are not anyone of these either.

I have seen and experienced many of the best things that material life has to offer, am unfazed by pomp and glamor and pedantics, have personally touched great intellectual heights, have developed intuition to a high degree, lived through severe abuse at home, cultivated a great deal of equanimity, seen destruction/death of near and dear ones, broken many false ceilings, grown out of an ivory tower, rebelled, suffered for wrong decisions, seriously harmed by a guru-charlatan and have had and am getting some wonderful and rare yogic experiences. It's all part of my growth of consciousness. If I die now, I'll willingly go with the wealth of information and experiences that I have accumulated at this young age. I am proud to say that I m one of those rare few who has taken the first few steps on the brave path of being and becoming and am glad that I am not confined by the evils of parochialism, prejudice, mindless rituals, scriptural mumbo jumbo, fanaticism, intellectual stupidity and dogma. Shalom.
