Do the SRF teachings ask you to become a biblical critic? Yogananda himself considered the bible to be holy scripture. You are such a "textbook liberal" that it would be laughable if it weren't so boring. Your biblical analysis is half-witted at best and nothing but the same old dull ranting we have all heard before and can hear any day of the week. Why don't you go meditate instead of rattling off this drivel? Your ranting has the smell of the truck stop.

If we look deeply into why people get critical we find somewhere a deep hurt. A deep confusion. A reaction to the world or to someone-whatever the target may be. It is like a wound inside that is festering and we can't get to its source. It is a deep dissatisfaction with ouselves and with life. But eventually there is no place to run, no place to go. Anywhere we go the challenges resurface. Often we find those around us are just as critical because it becomes a reflection of our reality.

I don't have the answers just observing the symtoms and trying to make sense of them as you are. Sometimes it can build up into anger and then we let it out on those around us. Even those we deeply care about. Then we have to face ourselves because we eventually recognize that not all of the problems come from outside of us. No; our reality is self created. But if we were to recognize it - all of it - could we really handle it? So we just work on what we can - what we see in our immediate environment - even though it is often painful. Slow by slow. We are all in this predicament together. We are all looking for a way out. That is why we are here. This deep dissatisfaction with those around us really is just a deeper dissatisfaction with ourselves. With our life. With this world. Yet that is why we are here on this forum. That is why we met. We have come face to face with ourselves.
