Why do we treat religion like marriage — only one husband or wife at a time? If we are unhappy with our religion, why not carry on a religious affair? When our present religious experience leaves us dissatisfied, why not look for a new spiritual love? I don't recommend this for personal relationships, but when we realize that there is one Supreme Being known by many names, we are not divorcing The Divine but only a religious belief system that no longer meets our needs.
If our jobs weren’t meeting our needs and if our jobs were in fact creating problems in our lives, wouldn’t we at least consider the possibility of changing careers? Yet in our spiritual lives so many people believe what they have been told was unequivocal religious truth, and so they refuse to question whether it is the only truth, and nothing but the truth. If there were only one right religion, wouldn’t we have discovered it by now, and wouldn’t everyone be able to discern the truth?
Yet many people stay with what they “know” to be religious truth even when common sense and intuition direct them to other paths. The Divine wouldn’t have provided us with brains if we weren’t supposed to use them.
