Sanatana Dharma: the ground of infinite actualization.

Sanatana Dharma recognizes that the Ultimate Reality, which is the ground of infinite potentiality and actualization, cannot be limited by any name or concept. The potential for human wholeness (or in other frames of reference, enlightenment, salvation, liberation, transformation, blessedness, nirvana, moksha) is present in every human being. No race or religion is superior and no color or creed is inferior. All humans are spiritually united like the drops of water in an ocean. Therefore: Give a person freedom to think, freedom to believe, freedom to disbelieve and freedom to adopt a way of worship, which suits his/her temperament. After all, what is important in worship of God is the sincerity of heart, not the outer form of worship. Don’t divide the human race into conflicting armies and camps of Holy believers and Unholy Others.

The Non-dual Teachings of Yeshua ha-Notzri, Jesus the Nazarene.

Jesus the Nazarene (ha-Notzri/Branch of David) teaches that "The Kingdom of God is within You" Luke 17:21 If the Kingdom of God is infinite, and is also within you does that mean that you contain the infinite ? How does one contain the infinite without being Infinite One Self ? If you are infinite you are One with the Universe that is also infinite. How can you make yourself separate from the infinite. That is the illusion of duality, and Jesus teaches non-duality. The Kingdom of God is WITHIN You, and within everything. It is all that exists. There is nothing other than "that". Ein od Milvado. אין עוד מלבדו

"God is One, there is none other", can also be interpreted as "There is nothing else" Not that there is only One God (Monotheism) ... rather, there is only One Infinite Everything, and you and Jesus and Buddha and your neighbor are part of that Oneness. It is not Atheism it is called Monism. Huge Difference.

Some, like Baruch Spinoza say that "Everything is God" That is Non-dual thought. There is Only One. Nothing else.

There is One Spirit, or energy, that unites all of Creation.

There is One Spirit, or energy, that unites all of Creation. It permeates everything. It unites all the atoms of the universe. It connects all human beings with one another and with everything else in creation. Although we may appear to one another as separate, disconnected beings, we are each extensions of the Creator's spirit. What happens to one of us touches us all. There is a unified, psychic ecology among all events in creation. - Henry Reed

"Jesus" by Cat Stevens / Yusuf Islam They used to call him Jesus... they still misunderstand him.

They used to call him Jesus
Long time ago
They're still calling him Jesus
don't you know
They crossed the wood and hanged him
A long time ago
They still misunderstand him
Those who don't know
And in the evening his love will lead the blind
In every secret corner there in your mind

They called him Gautama Buddha
Oh long time ago
He turned the world to order
Don't you know
He used to sit knowing
Oh long time ago
Where you and me were going
And in the evening his love will lead the blind
- Cat Stevens / Yusuf Islam

Love your neighbor as your SELF.

“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is LIKE it: ‘Love your neighbor as your SELF. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” - Matthew 22:36-40

In this exchange Jesus illuminates the most important Commandment/Law/Way (TAO) when he uses the word "SELF". When he says the 2nd is LIKE the 1st.

When he says Love your neighbor as your "SELF", combined with the 1st Way (Tao) Love Allaha (Brahman/SELF) with all your heart, with all your soul, all your mind, all your strength and Love your neighbor as your "SELF" - it completes the circle. Allaha (Brahman/SELF)=neighbor=SELF

"Love your neighbor as your SELF" was the EXACT CENTER VERSE OF THE BOOK OF THE TORAH. As his teacher, Rabbi Hillel, said: "All the Commandments are within this command."
