The Divine Creator does not decide each morning whether He or She will be a Buddhist God, a Christian God, or a Muslim God. As we see in Step Two, The Divine has no religion, is greater than religion, and can do for us whatever it is that we need done. Where did the idea of religion come from?
Did the early cavemen get together to draw up some rules about what they would believe concerning existence, a higher power, and how and what they should believe about the way they should live? If so, how did they come to a consensus? What about those who disagreed? By establishing a certain way of life — call it a philosophy of life or a religion — some ideas were discarded for the sake of — what? Establishing rules? Setting boundaries? And what about those who disagreed? Were they banned from the tribal community? Were they shunned by family and friends for their “strange” beliefs?
By establishing walls of beliefs, we keep some people walled out. That is why I am glad that The Divine has no religion. We may think we know what The Divine wants and how The Divine thinks — but we might be wrong. Our safest bet is to love as The Divine loves, and let the rules and boundaries stay flexible.
