We should maintain that if an interpretation of any word in any religion leads to disharmony and does not positively further the welfare of the many, then such an interpretation is to be regarded as wrong; that is, against the will of God, or as the working of Satan or Mara.

When then a person is mindfully at rest the Kingdom begins to take form. When we find pleasure in the small ordinary things in life, the Kingdom comes. When we allow the anxieties of the daily grind to dissipate into a peaceful moment, the Kingdom is. Being at ease. Resting. It is out of such things as these that the Kingdom is built, and when we live without haste and anxiety—at peace—we create a much different world from the "reality" of today, a world less polluted, less violent, and less inherently unjust—relationships less stressed, contentious, and defensive. Amen.
