the eternal foundation and the guiding star of all enduring civilizations."  (And TRUE religion is not that manufactured by the thugs of this world, it is WITHIN YOU.  It is YOUR relationship with the God within, as you sprout yourself.  When this concept manifests in MANY, an enduring civilization is born. Some of you must have noticed that civilizations under control of "outside" religion do NOT endure. This one of my own country will NOT because people have placed God outside of themselves, they have accepted the duality of separation from "god"  as truth, rather than the Unity of all as truth.
