mind the gap

Official love, official tolerance and official harmony are ugly. All these are in one way or another ego-oriented acts and not beyond-ego acts. Therefore , it always induces problems, as is happening in current societies.
In fact, harmony , love and compassion are not the products of religion as they are known to be.
They are spiritual as they are spiritual products,spiritual property.Many people, not interested in religion try to avoid these emotions because of their religious connotations.These remarkable virtues are not the products of the ego and can consequently not be the property of religion, as it emerges from the beyond -ego states and is, therefore , beyond religion.
