Thanks for re-reading that Share. I'm not for for anybody condemning anyone about their personal lives. I was merely offering an explanation which may or may not be valid. < Yes ,I think M did believe that religions still have that power but I also believe he knew that religion is pure and our ability to understand the intent is according to our own individual capacity or level of evolution.

Bradley Manning sentenced to 35 years Sorry, Mike, yes, you did say suppression and I read enforcement. It's a hot topic for me. It sounded like you were in favor of religion, at the very least, condemning people if their sexuality is different than the supposed norm. I wonder if Maharishi thought that contemporary religions really have any power to protect the evolution of souls. ________________________________ From: Mike Dixon <mdixon.6...@yahoo.com> To: "FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com" <FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com> Sent: Saturday, August 24, 2013 12:32 PM Subject: Re: [FairfieldLife] Re: Pfc. Bradley Manning sentenced to 35 years I'm not really sure what Share was implying in that post. If it was that I believe it's open season on harassing people about their sexuality, then she's all wet as you would be also if that's what you thought. My comment was in regard to the role of religion in general, not how people practice it. People practice their religions according to their ability and understanding, which has the capacity to evolve as they do.. ________________________________ From: authfriend <authfri...@yahoo.com> To: FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com Sent: Saturday, August 24, 2013 7:39 AM Subject: [FairfieldLife] Re: Pfc.

And of course, how we treat one another going through theses phases of evolution determine our own fate. Do unto others as you would have done unto you.
