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!
"I believe in the fundamental truth of all great religions of the world."
Mahatma Gandhi (via purplebuddhaproject)
Kindness, compassion, non-judgmentalism, reverence for earth and all she provides, etc…
"Spiritual progress is like detoxification. Things have to come up in order to be released. Once we have asked to be healed, then our unhealed places are forced to the surface."
"It’s very hard to grow, because it’s difficult to let go of the models of ourselves in which we’ve invested so heavily."
"When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about."
"Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none."
"You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth."
