Why is it so important to form spiritual communities?

Rainbow  Why is it so important to form spiritual communities?
"Why is it so important to form spiritual communities? I will give you an image: engineers build immense power stations capable of supplying energy to entire regions. Well, a spiritual group can be compared to a power station: it is able to provide the energy needed to project light far into space. For human minds are veritable batteries. They simply need to be united and put in contact with a divine idea; the currents they project will be received by vast numbers of other minds in the world, and these people will also decide to work for a divine idea.

You pray, meditate and sing together, but you are not yet aware of the immense possibilities these activities offer for the good of all humanity. It is time to become conscious of it and do this work, so that the light of the kingdom of God can be received by the greatest possible number of minds on earth."

Sure, I'll respond to this honey pot.

It's true that grouping two or more people together toward a common cause, whether acting physically or spiritually, can effect the results quicker or with more intensity or actuality than a single operating alone.

However, it is impossible to conform people to a single, common ideology without destroying their respective personalities. In order for a group to flourish, their individual perspectives and needs must be acknowledged, appreciated and fulfilled, as the cases stand.
Truth appears in many forms. Find those that resonate with you.

Because you're easier to pick off if you don't.

peragrate: Interesting thought. Paranoid and damned depressing, but true nonetheless. :>
