The Message vs The Messenger
It seems human nature, when given a message from God (whoever or whatever we believe that to be), to venerate the messenger (Buddha, Jesus, Mohammed, Bahá’u’lláh, Joseph Smith, Gandhi, etc etc etc). It’s as if we can’t separate the two, but all too often, we end up focusing on the Messenger rather than on the Message. And, they’ve all had essentially the same message: promote peace, love others, practice compassion. They also usually include having a RESPECT for nature. We call these Truths.

Would you like to submit some words of wisdom or ask a question? We'd love to hear from you!
