One of the spiritual laws is that of One Mind, and it helps to create a sense of equality. All the spiritual laws help to create a sense of equality, but One Mind says that what you see in someone else is what is inside of you.

In "A Manual for Peace," Seth says that our perspective of reality is like holding a piece of paper out in front of yourself at arm's length, and the paper has a pin hole in it. That is how much we see of true reality--what we can see through the pinhole.

Seth also said that our relationships are like holding a two sided mirror between us, and what we assume we see in the other person is actually a reflection of what is inside of us.

The Prophet Muhammad taught the principles of equality, and standing in protest when someone is not standing on the principles, but the principles of the One Mind are something that need regular attention--constant attention--and what better time to reflect on this than Ramadan?

Ramadan is the time of introspection, of questioning whether you, yourself, are standing on the principles. You look inside of yourself to see whether what you are protesting is actually something that is inside of you, something you fear, something that triggers you to react to what someone else is doing.

Our prayer circle oftentimes spun off into small training sessions, and one of them involved two people spending the day together, nothing in particular planned other than to talk and see whether we triggered each other. "Are you triggering me?"

So, what are the principles that Muslims--and students of the Faith of the Pure Ray--stand up to defend? Anything that does not treat all people fairly and equally.

What authority do they stand on when they do so? One of our inalienable rights each of us has granted to us by the Creator of us all is to be treated fairly and equally.

Muslims have the right to protest anything that does not treat all people fairly and equally, but go too far when innocent people are dragged into the conflict.

During the first half of this session we focus on the principles of tolerance, and the second half of coming up with a plan that benefits everyone.
