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.

What makes human beings love war so?
have separated us from life.
Masquerading as friends,
they have made us enemies
of each other."
William Martin, The Activist's Tao Te Ching, p.11
We fight with each other and hate each other and injure and even kill each other and we do not even know why. Emotions of the moment drive us to evil for which we can only grieve and lament. And after all the carnage, things seem to right themselves and we go back to living as if it never happened. What makes humans beings fight war? If not with guns, then with words.
Will human beings ever become more aware and in control of their emotions and reason? Most human beings are not very spiritually developed.
