Temple of the Golden Rule

Welcome to the Tek-Gnostics Abbey. Remove thy shoes, weary traveler, for thou tread upon sacred ground. Housed within the very heart of the tek-gnostics network core, our Abbey serves to collect and aggregate the spiritual and mystery traditions of old earth. Within these databanks, you will find an array of teachings, both contemporary and ancient, accessible to the casual, intermediate and advanced student. We format these data streams for ease of access and, more importantly, to illustrate the common thread of wisdom that is present across earth's many traditions.

 The essence of the Tek-Gnostic aggregated tradition is expressed eloquently in the universal teaching known as "The Golden Rule." The Golden Rule or ethic of reciprocity is a global ethical code of conduct. It has a long history, and a great number of prominent religious figures and philosophers have restated various forms of the Rule in numerous ways.

The Golden Rule is arguably the most essential basis for the modern concept of human rights, in which each individual has a right to just treatment and a responsibility to ensure justice for others. A key element of the Golden Rule is that a person attempting to live by this rule treats all people, not just members of his or her in-group or tribe, with consideration.

The Golden Rule has its roots in a wide range of world cultures and is a standard which different cultures use to resolve conflicts. It is in this sense a truly global (if not universal) system of ethical behavior and as such serves as a cornerstone of human unity. Simply put and from the perspective of Tek-Gnostics, the golden rule is as follows...

 

"Co-operate with others as you would have others co-operate with you"

We choose the word "co-operate" to underscore another tek-gnostics premise that collectively, we must all lend a hand or work together with common intent, toward a beneficial outcome. After all, on this very small planet, careening through the cosmos... we are all in this together.
 




 

 

 

 

 

 

The simple concept of treating others as you would treat yourself, considered quaint and outdated by some, contains a powerful wisdom. It cuts through the myriad ideologies that tend to separate humans and points toward a universal inter-personal code of conduct. Treat your fellow man as you would have your fellow man treat you...


The tekgnostic does not distinguish between himself
and the world...
The needs of other people are as his own.

He is good to those who are good...
he is also good to those who are not good.
Thereby he increases the good.

He trusts those who are trustworthy...


he also trusts those who are not trustworthy.
Thereby he increases trustworthiness.

The tekgnostic lives in harmony with universe
and his mind is the world's mind.
So... he nurtures the worlds of others
as a mother does her children.

The Five Traditions

Tek-Gnostics views religion as a political institution, thereby making it suspect. However, in each of Old Earth's five great traditions, there were specific factions, such as the Sufis within the Islamic tradition, the Kabbalists within Judaism, and especially the sects that are today known as the Gnostics, within the Christian tradition. Each of these factions safeguarded the mystical teachings within their respective tradition.

Accordingly, Tek-Gnostics acknowledges the Beauty, Wisdom and Truth found within the mystical factions of the five great traditions of Old Earth. We have allowed each representation within our Abbey in honor of the light each brings to the world. We condemn however, the horrific loss of innocent earthling life throughout history brought about by Holy War, Jihad, etc., in the name of God. We therefore present the following "Five Traditions" in the name of Peace...

 

The Buddhist Tradition
Hurt not others in ways that you yourself would find hurtful.
      - Udana-Varga 5,1


The Christian Tradition

All things whatsoever ye would that men should do
to you, do ye so to them;
for this is the law and the prophets.

 - Matthew 7:1

 


The Hindu Tradition

This is the sum of duty; do naught onto others what
you would not have them do unto you.
   
 -  Mahabharata 5,1517

The Islamic Tradition
No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself.
 - Sunnah

The Judaism Tradition
What is hateful to you, do not do to your fellowman.
This is the entire Law; all the rest is commentary.

 - Talmud, Shabbat 3id
