In my own spiritual journey, I've found wisdom and comfort in the words of Gandhi. I like much of what he says about many spiritual concepts. Yet I'm not convinced he provides all of the answers (nor did he claim to), anymore than anyone else.
For example, unlike Gandhi, I do not see God as ever being tyrannical, though I do see God as the most powerful spirit that moves among us to encourage persistent peace and love. To see God as tyrannical, to me, would mean that God was the one who was supporting the physical wars of the Old Testament, even when the Israellites were on the offense and committing atrocities against their enemies--atrocities that they were convinced God had told them to commit! While many fundamentalists see it that way, I ceased being a part of that thought back in college days. The fundamentalists can blame my influential Christian professors back then in Oklahoma Baptist University, all men that many people eventually decided were heretics!
God, as I understand God to be now, stands firm on principles. Allowing consequences, but not acting as a tyrant against those who do not choose to believe the Truth--Truth being the best definition of God, according to Gandhi. On that point, as on many, many others that he has, I fully agree.
Yet, when we step outside the bounds and try to become God or assume a characteristic that God would not--even for what we see as good causes--then WE become the tyrants.
