The idea of the Perennial Philosophy of Aldous Huxley leads one to the idea that God is too big for any one religion. How is it that sometimes people outgrow their religion of childhood? James Fowler, among others, has mapped out a model of spiritual development. Osho says that a person cannot enter into a spiritual life until he/she rebels against childish religious beliefs. Notes On A Spiritual Life intends to explore deeper understandings of an authentic spiritual life.

Forgive and forget
For healing to occur, it is better said, "Forgive and forget," rise above the injury and understand that it never really occurred on the path of the spirit. The imagined injury occurred on the path of the ego because no one can be injured on the path spirit.
Our injuries are an illusion because no one and nothing can injure us when we are consciously aware of our true nature.
Forgiveness, which is a miracle, is a shift in perception and awareness, from the path of the ego to the path of the spirit. Jesus says as they are killing him, "Father forgive them for they know not what they do." The same could be said of all our injuries.
It is not our job to judge and punish error. That should be left for the Holy Spirit. It is none of our concern what has contributed to the errors of our brothers and sisters. Our job is simply to rise above the errors on the path of the ego and recognize our well being on the path of the spirit and wish the same for our brothers and sisters that they may join us there.
So, by all means, forgive and forget and get on with your life. You deserve to be happy and enjoy a high quality life and a simple request of "Father, forgive them and me for most of the time we know not what we do" will add tremendous healing to the world and hasten the realization of the At-One-Ment when everybody loves every body all the time.
