The Other Way

Belief systems are the filters through which we organize options of experience. They can be very helpful, in this respect. Although it seems to me that enforced morality creates conditions for inequality, as sure as the absence of morality ensures it. What are we, then, to do?

The idea that others should be expected to uphold the standards I set for myself is impractical. That could only work if all people, everywhere, shared the same individual experiences. Morality is not a well defined system of group integrity, it is a general foundation upon which each individual builds a structure of personal beliefs with regard to their experiences.

Mind seeks to resolve inconsistencies it encounters. Ego understands inconsistencies as discrimination. Transcending ego rises above emotional attachment to conditions and chooses love rather than discrimination.

(2.3) The value of the subconscious is enormous. It guides us, it warms us, it controls the vital processes and is the seat of memory.

(2.4) The conscious mind has the faculty of discrimination, it has the power of reasoning. It is the seat of the will and may impress the subconscious.
