The Fundamental Core Elements All Spiritual Traditions Have in Common

The Instinctive Seeker would be wise to gain the common core Wisdoms from

Buddha, Advaita Vedanta, Dzogchen, Zen, Tao, Judaism, and Islam… for starters…

Even Christianity’s early roots gave meditation and spiritual contemplation

a very strong recommendation for not taking someone else word for the ‘Word of God’,

but to experientially experiencing

the ‘Grace’ of Divinity.

Even though the original Christian mystics outlined many perspectives

that were common with all spiritual traditions…

along the way Christianity strayed away from

encouraging just anyone to experience this themselves,

without the guidance and control of establishing the church as a dominating political power.

The holy Union of Mind, Body and Spirit remains one of the Ultimate Truths

of deepening one’s connection to the Divine with all other reasonable traditions.

Seek this out when soul searching for authentic Christian teachings.

A good start is:

Trappist Father Thomas Keating, co-founder of the Christian contemplative Centering Prayer

Centering Prayer: A Training Course for Opening to the Presence of God,”

When considering inspirations from the various religions and spiritual traditions,

be mindful of the fundamental core elements that each have in common.

It will become apparent that these Wisdoms are like

the spokes of a wheel that point ‘toward’,

the ineffable nature of ‘Divinity’ that is inseparable from our True Self.
