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.

Leave ridiculousness behind and move to the Divine
If your perception is biased,what is the impact this has on your relationships?
No person is an island. Homo sapiens are social creatures and our "reality" is a social construction. Our biases not only impact our own perception, but are contagious and somtimes toxic.
What we think we see not only affects our own well being but the well being of others as well, especially those with whom we interact in more immediate and intimate ways.
Grandma said, "Birds of a feather flock together." What kind of birds do you flock with?
Is it true that you can tell a person by his/her friends or is this just another form of bias?
The path of the ego is littered with ridiculous people doing ridiculous things, and these ridiculous people doing ridiculous things leads to us being and acting ridiculous ourselves.
The path of the spirit is quite different. On the path of the spirit we leave ridiculous things behind and move on to Love and peace which comes from forgiveness and connecting with the Divine within ourselves and within others
