    The Religions Paradox

    Three religions teach reincarnation and three religions teach resurrection. The paradox can be solved. The Master walked with Chester in the contemplation garden. Chester was looking for a good debate and the Master just wanted to walk in peace.

    Chester tried to start something. "If a true religion is a path to God, why not just one religion, why do we need 6 or 7 or more?"

    The Master replied, "There are 9 religions but only two paths."

    Chester hated having to probe. So he attacked. "That makes no sense. Explain it."

    The Master smiled, "You make everything so complicated. You need long logical explanations when things just are. It just is."

    Chester found that the Master was difficult to debate with. Master never gave him anything to resist or counter. He had never met anyone who seemed to just glide through life, serene and unconcerned. Finally, he resorted to begging. "Please, you have to give me more details than 9 religions but only two paths."

    The Master walked silently for a while and finally asked, "You want things categorized and labeled like scientist do? Would that help?"

    Chester shrugged and said, "How else would you communicate it."

    The Two Paths

    The Master said, "I will do my best. I need to sit and talk. It is hard to talk like a scientist. I need to focus." The Master walked over to a large tree with lots of shade and sat with his legs crossed. Chester joined him. It was much cooler under the tree. The Master began. "There have always been two paths. One path is the path of Absolute Awareness achieved through meditation, and this is the path Buddha took. The other path is a path of Faith, achieved through prayer, which is the path Christ showed us. One path is with the Tao and the other is with the Father. Another way to look at it is this. One path experiences God as pure Awareness, called Nirvana. The other path experiences God as having a human like personality such as Allah, Krishna or the Father."

    Chester tried to soak it in. It seemed to make sense. "But which is better?".

    The Master continued. "I'll try to be logical for you. Lets assume the statement that, God created everything, to be true. That means for Eternity, God was before Creation. This means the original Eternity contained only God. The best way to put it in words is to say God was Eternal Infinite Awareness in perfect Balance. During the original eternity God had no personality because a personality is used to interact with other persons. God only manifested a personality after God had a creation to interact with."

    Chester was stunned into silence. So far the Master seemed right on! Chester softly requested, "Go on."

    The Master laughed softly then continued. "The God Awareness path explains Tao, Buddhism and Zen. The Personal God path is contained in the story of Krishna and Christ."

    Chester loved to find flaws in logic. He pounced. "That is only four religions! You can't count Zen and Buddhism twice!"

    The Three Three's

    The Master paused and closed his eyes. After about 30 seconds his eyes fluttered open and said, "The three three's. The Mystery of the three three's will explain it." He shifted deeper into the grass growing under the tree. "Three primary religions teach reincarnation, they are Hinduism, Taoism and Buddhism. Three primary religions teach of a resurrection, they are Judaism, Christianity and Sufism. And three more religions are a blend of one of the two mentioned. You can call them blended religions. Zen is a blend of Buddhism and Taoism, The Sihks are a blend of Hinduism and Sufism and there is one more blended religion, a blend of Judaism and Christianity called Sabbath Christians or Messianic Jews."

    Chester challenged, "But that doesn't explain why you have three religions teaching reincarnation and three others teaching resurrection."

    The Master smiled, "It begins with the Plan of God."
