Inward Quest is the only place that I know of where people can go to share spiritual information freely.

There are other forums available, but they almost always:

  1. Have a charismatic leader, and
  2. Have a doctrine.

In my view, those two things pretty much exclude the possibility of open discourse.

It is my experience that, outside of such forums, people are uncomfortable about discussing religious and spiritual topics, for the same reasons that they are uncomfortable talking about sex (it is too personal, too controversial, and in the minds of some spouses, considered "emotional cheating").

There may be other settings out there that cultivate this spirit of free information exchange in such matters, but I haven't seen them.

I definitely agree that the freedom to express ourselves on this site is quite unique.

I think some of the greatest strengths of Inward Quest come in the form of spiritual truths.

  • It is a question and answer site with a wide spectrum of opinions expressed so it demonstrates that there is really no right answer for everyone

  • Every question leads to an answer, and every answer leads to another question so it demonstrates that there is no end to your spiritual search

  • There is no charge for using the website and there is no obvious advertising so it demonstrates that you really can get valuable information for free

  • There is no right way to search through the interconnected maze of questions and answers here. You find your own way around the site based upon your individual interests so it demonstrates that your path is the right path.

  • The people who take part in the website are mostly strangers to each other but, together, they also help to run the website so it demonstrates that human beings share a common bond of trust

  • You never know who has the answer you are looking for and, often, the best answers can be unexpected ones from unexpected people so it demonstrates that the wisdom of a group speaks through different people at different times

But most of all, as far as spiritual subjects - and your question - are concerned, I think it demonstrates most effectively that there is nothing to fear from a different point of view

Some groups and forums seem to shun and exclude those who are different or think differently.

Here we seem to welcome and thrive upon diversity.

Yes, the diversity on this site definitely makes it more fun to contribute and learn.

To be a forum where people can go and share their knowledge to hopefully aid others in their spiritual growth while expanding and becoming more openminded themselves on their own spiritual journey.

I have personally become far more open minded about people's views now from participating on the site.

Everything, and nothing depending on where your interest lies, but in the same token, that is what makes Inward Quest such a popular place to share, and learn in a diverse community. Inward Quest is unique, and it allows self expression on spiritual topics, and tha is why I am a member of this group.

I think as a people, and as a seeker, we should be able to share our experience with each in a none biasis way, to continue the journey of spiritual enlightenment for ourselves, and others.

There is so much we do not know, and there is so much we need to learn, and we do need to learn from each other, because we cannot do it on our own. And I trust that everyone feels the same way about Inward Quest! It is a good place to be.

Peace, Love, Unity. and one fellowship!

I agree that there is so much we don't know and this is where the site helps enormously.

I just ticked ALL of the above.

I think Inward Quest is VERY useful in helping EARNEST seekers to discover if they really are on a glorious Quest and not just caught up in traffic on a one-way street.

I think Inward Quest exemplies that good students are teachers and good teachers are students. That we can all learn something from each other.
