# Day 132 (A thought for our times…)

With religious bigotry increasingly raising its ugly head around the world, one needs saner voices to prevail. Sharing for today the words of that New-Age spiritual teacher, Eckhart Tolle. In his best seller ’The New Earth’ at one place he writes~
“All religions are equally false and equally true, depending on how you use them. You can use them in the service of the ego, or you can use them in the service of the Truth. If you believe only your religion is the Truth, you are using it in the service of the ego. Used in such a way, religion becomes ideology and creates an illusory sense of superiority as well as division and conflict between people. In the service of the Truth, religious teachings represent signposts or maps left behind by awakened humans to assist you in spiritual awakening, that is to say, in becoming free of identification with form.”
