UNCOMPROMISING- Wilderness Cry- Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngUNCOMPROMISING- Now here is a word that “says it all”. It means an unwillingness to relinquish any part of a position for purposes of reaching  a common agreement (acceptance). Here in the USA, we see that attitude played out on our political scene routinely. Its a rarity to see real compromise between “liberals” and “conservatives”. Even on issues where they basically agree, they refuse to compromise “on principle alone”. There’s an old saying, “he cut his nose off to spite his face”, that aptly applies.. In the world of ideologies and religion, we wittiness the same, identical uncompromising attitude. Seemingly, absolutely no one is willing to “give an inch” when considering concepts of God, religious practices, and/or ideological views. That situation leads to relentless wars and discord. I understand that human nature (selfishness), being what it is, inclines us all in that direction. However, there comes a time when common rationality must come to the forefront if life of any kind is to survive. I sincerely believe we are at that crossroads now. In former days, wars were settled by one side killing more enemy than they killed of you. I personally have lived through two major wars and many smaller ones in a short 84 years. Even now we are in the midst of a war ongoing for sixteen plus years. It is obvious that, for the most part, world leaders, both civil and religious, are “dug in” with an uncompromising attitude. Why is that? I believe it has to do with unwillingness to give up Power, Money, Control (influence). Likely, leaders will never make meaningful compromise on their own; it mist be mandated from “grass-roots” up. How would that work? In my judgement, it can come about only through determining, recognizing, and accepting the “least common denominator” of our common universal spirituality. My philosophy mandates that there is and can be only “ONE SUPREME BEING”; you are free to call that Being by any name you wish but “a rose by any other name is still a rose”. So we may call that Being Brahma, Buddha, Yahweh, Allah, God or whatever. A name in no way changes the nature of that Being. With that in mind, it is obvious that the Spirit of that singular Being permeates everything in existence. Otherwise, it could not “be”. Therefore, I have called for recognition and acceptance of the World-Wide Communion Of Spirituality. We no longer then would be uncompromising, but rather compromising in the recognition of our common Spirituality with our Creator Supreme Being. It would make no difference then how we worship, implore or thank that Being so long as we did not demean others in their style or method of worship. Personally, I know very little about the explicit of any world religion other than Christianity. Even in Christianity with there being 33,000 different versions, I don’t know explicitly anything about any other version except my own. However, during my 84 plus years, I have witnessed considerable intolerance ( prejudice), among various “Christian” religious sects. That situation, of course, is a prime example if the uncompromising position taken by various religious leaders. Just two days ago I read an extensive article, written by some author unknown to me, unmercifully criticizing Billy Graham for his stance on Ecumenism. Billy was accused of rubbing elbows with the Pope; an unforgivable sin. So, whilst it seems that most are at general peace with each other, there remains some  element of uncompromising attitude among Christians; “I’m right and you are dead wrong and are going straight to hell”. Peace can never be attained with that continuing attitude. We must recognize our “Common Spirituality” and stop fighting with each other. If we can’t “keep our own house in order”, how can we expect the other great religions of the world to honor and respect us? I personally don’t care what “religion” you practice or even of you  practice none at all, or if you don’t believe in a Supreme Being, we are mandated to love (accept) each other for peace sake; Jesus did. By defining our Supreme Being, I have been able to define all It’s Attributes (Trinity, Holy Spirit, God’s Will, Soul, Eternity and literally everything concerning both out temporal and eternal existence). My powerful little book, Wilderness Cry, explains all in irrefutable scientific and philosophic terms; Amazon,
