If I may assume that God means same qualities in every religion/belief then for the sake of understanding, let's call God=Principle. Principles are natural laws that are universal, self-evident, self-validating, timeless, objective and at work whether or not we understand or value them. For example the Law of Gravity.
If another assumption I make is true then every religion/belief is a mental map of that community. Lets call it Paradigm.
As long as Paradigms are in alignment with the principle there should not be any conflict. Just the Peace everywhere.
Learning lesson for me is that before I act on any of my thought(Paradigm), I should confirm that its in alignment with the Principle(GOD). If not then don't act on it because acting on a thought that is not aligned to the Principle is for sure going to bring conflict.

When I first read I thought same way but was taken a little back! Thought, I am being egoistic because I did not agree with interpretation of Thai master by author. I did not see anywhere in master's explanation of glass to relate it as if we are dead! How can I even think if I am behaving as if I am dead! I totally agree with impermanence and non-attachment but it it needs life to experience presence, impermanence and non-attachment!

Samuel Smiles said the same thing:
"Sow a thought, reap an action;
Sow an action, reap a habit;
Sow a habit, reap a character;
Sow a character, reap a destiny."
I am blessed that I believe and understand today's wisdom reading.
As said by Jagdishbhai, its inner work and needs continuous awareness to start sowing original rather than substitute thoughts.
Thanks for refreshing my thoughts and in gratitude to souls who are facilitating journey of this less traveled road.

Wonderful perspectives. I think we have forgotten freedom and got so much carried away by "order & function"
