I'll tell you how

I made that statement because of what I've learned from reading books, watching documentaries, listening to lectures, etc., etc., about these subjects has lead me to MY OWN views that there are Deep Truths at the foundations of Most (not all) Major Religions. I'm talking mostly about the Esoteric (hidden or deep) Truths rather than the Exoteric (exterior - cultural traditions) that most people fight over to this day.

To understand the Deep Truths (Esoteric) the individual must seek this knowledge out themselves for it is their own WILL to learn these Truths that will give them the means by which to understand them. If one's mind is sealed and not open to new (or hidden) information, they cannot change their beliefs.

However, the Cultural Similarities are right out in the open and can be the starting point for a person's quest to get to THEIR understanding of Truth. For example, the "divine birth through a virgin mother" precedes Christianity by many Religions such as in India, which has a number of messengers who were divinely conceived and two of them bore the name “Chrishna” or “Chrishna the Saviour” (note the similarity with Christ). Now Chrishna was born of a chaste virgin called Devaki, Who on account of her purity was selected to become the mother of God.

Buddha was considered and believed by his followers to have been begotten of God and born of a virgin whose name was Maya. Long before the Christian era, we read of how the divine power called the” Holy Ghost” descended upon virgin Maya. In ancient Chinese version of the story, the holy ghost is called Shing-Shin.

The Siamese (Taiwan), had a God and saviour who was Virgin Born whom they called Codom. In this very ancient story, the beautiful Virgin had been informed in advance that she was to become the mother of a great messenger of God, and one day while in her usual period of meditation and prayer, she was impregnated by divine sun beams. When the boy was born, he grew up in a remarkable manner, became a protégé of wisdom and performed miracles.

When the first Jesuit priest visited china, they wrote in their reports at finding a heathen religion of that country, of a story of a redeeming saviour who was born of a Virgin and divinely conceived. The God was said to have been born 3468 B.C (before Christ), his name was Lao-Tsze and was said to have been born of a virgin black in complexion and as beautiful as a Jasper.

In Egypt, long before the Christian era, and before any of its doctrine was conceived, the Egyptian people had several messengers of God, who were conceived through Immaculate Conception. Horus was known to all of ancient Egypt as having been born of the virgin Isis and his conception and birth was considered one of the three great mysteries or mystical doctrines of the Egyptian religion. To then every incident in connection with the conception and birth of Horus was pictured, sculptured, adored and worshiped as the incidents of the conception and birth of Jesus is among the Christians today. Another Egyptian God called Ra was also conceived by a Virgin.

Many other similarities such as the death and rebirth 3 days later are also common Exoteric threads. It's actually quite liberating to know that essentially we (humans) are all right, we just have many beautiful cultural metaphors for understanding the Divine Truth in our own unique ways. We can finally stop these fights and arguments once and for all.

And this INCLUDES Atheists as well who generally fall back on Science to prove (or disprove) the existence of a "God" where countless studies are showing that an "intelligent field" exists at the core of all sub-atomic particles. I refer to this field as consciousness (or spirit/soul).

It took me a while to make peace with these findings as it naturally conflicted with me growing up in a very christian european family. I see how LOVE is also a common (if not THE common principle) at the core of these Teachings. Dive deeper into understanding what LOVE is as an emotional state of being, achieved through prayer or meditation, and you begin to see through these false divisive veils placed on the common man.
