Quote:

Wikipedia said:
Yoan Truth is derived from three sources.

First, there is the empirical data of collective human experience.

Second, reason and logic must be brought to bear on our experience to create our knowledge of how our experiences relate to one another and can be expected to relate to our future experience.

Third, a careful exploration of our deepest feelings, our fundamental values, and our most vital strivings is necessary for us to realize fully what aims (goals, meanings) to pursue.

The Open Source Truth of the continuously evolving Book of Yo is Yoism's collective understanding of how to utilize valid knowledge in the most effective pursuit of the deepest human aims.




Yo!

Yep, but not bad as religions go.

I have been an open source advocate for years. The idea of allowing the "users" to change the core beliefs of the religion and commit the changes to the project or form a fork with a slightly different aim is awesome. It is really the quickest way to arrive at spiritual truth based on human experience. Open source development models tend to evolve slowly at first and then at a certain point they reach critical mass and the project begins growing at a phenomenal rate as long as it keeps attracting new members. If people leave the project it dies. This means the strongest beliefs will survive.

No one can push him; no one can make him do things against himself or against his better judgment. A warrior is tuned to survive, and he survives in the best of all possible fashions." ― Carlos Castaneda

I have been reading The Book of Yo, and it indicates that the cornerstone of their religion is Democracy and scientific method....how very practical. Swami needs to check this out and report back.

Seems a bit common sense to me.
I mean divinity of each and every sentient self?
Environmental sanity?
Healthy communities?
Still, maybe it's good to have all these things listed and expounded upon.

No king, no government ever extended to the people more rights than the people insisted upon. And I think we've come to a place with this psychedelic issue. We have the gay community as a model, and all the other communities. We simply have to say, Look: LSD has been around for fifty years now, It ain't going away. WE are not going away. We are not slack-jawed, dazed, glazed, unemployable psychotic creeps. We are pillars of society. You can't do anything in culture without psychedelic people in key positions. And this is the great unspoken of American Creativity. So I think it's basically time to just come out of the closet and go, "You know what, I'm stoned, and I'm proud."

no really YO. i'm going to keep draggin' this up, YO UNTIL YO PEOPLE notice how cool it is to have thinkers like us trying to stop the crazy insanity in the world. these are scientist and entheongenic lovers uniting. just what we need for our community right? you don't have to join! they don't want you too! they just want to be as recognized as other, warring, killing, murdering religions are.
