Yours is an excellent summary of MBT, precisely as Tom describes it, but may be too accurate for a highly confused FWAU in severe distress, with a high noise to signal ratio, to interpret and absorb.
The key to ""rescue" fundamentalism or hinayana is to be highly prescriptive, i.e. do this, this and this, like guiding a toddler, somewhat counterintuitively from the actual instruction and spirit of MBT so well described by yourself.
Rescue Fundamentalism is a dumbing down so severe, that it actually violates core principles, such as not being prescriptive, and of course, many confuse Rescue Fundamentalism for the actual source teaching as time goes by.
If we were to copy the manner of the Spiritualists, your listing would be on a large card in front of the podium as a statement of principles of MBT when there were gatherings, or on a template page in the front of MBT literature.
A statement of principles describes a movement or philosophy to outsiders, and becomes a mental challenge for newcomers to ponder and adopt a posture of openness or skepticism. With experience and triangulation, these postulations may become belief, and with with further experience, knowledge, which is where mysticism becomes science.
A person who knows several friends who have been to Australia, believes Australia exists, but a person who has visited Australia or lives there, knows Australia exists, and this is the nature of belief. Accuracy in our acceptance of the uncertainty of things, rather than irrational attachment to things that are in truth uncertain.
Tom focuses somewhat on the issue of unprofitable imbalance between openness and skepticism, and confusion between belief and knowledge. Belief per se is not the problem, it is the confusion that belief is knowledge. The authentic scientist rather maintains an uncertainty factor attached to all theories.
Just for fun, here are the beliefs of Spiritualism that are posted in front of the podium and pasted into hymn covers.
The Nine Principles of the National Spiritualist Association of Churches, USA:
1- We believe in Infinite Intelligence.
2- We believe that the phenomena of Nature, both physical and spiritual, are the expression of Infinite Intelligence.
3- We affirm that a correct understanding of such expression and living in accordance therewith, constitute true religion.
4- We affirm that the existence and personal identity of the individual continue after the change called death.
5- We affirm that communication with the so-called dead is a fact, scientifically proven by the phenomena of Spiritualism.
6- We believe that the highest morality is contained in the Golden Rule: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
7- We affirm the moral responsibility of individuals, and that we make our own happiness or unhappiness as we obey or disobey Nature’s physical and spiritual laws.
8- We affirm that the doorway to reformation is never closed against any soul here or hereafter.
9- We affirm that the precepts of Prophecy and Healing are Divine attributes proven through Mediumship.
