It's been a bit of a sojourn, life seems to have gotten in the way of my blog, but time and space is all relative. So why not pick up where I left off ?
Often in constructed religion with think of aspiring towards virtue. We fabricate all kinds of rules and laws to keep us in check. Rules of morality, rules about prayer or practice. In some aspect these religious laws are there to preserve our human virtue.
But I heard it said that relying on human virtue is a very frail thing. What we need to rely on is the human heart. When we truly connect with each other at the level of the heart, we see the soul of our fellow beings. When we are at the heart level, we don't need any extrenal structures to guide us and keep us from doing wrong. The heart knows intuitively what is right and wrong and is free from conflicts that laws and rules often bring us.
Trust your heart , not your virtue and all will be well.
