Life Without Fear : Salvation is a Journey

Been down many roads in my life, so I have learned that there is much wisdom to be had in this wide wide world. One of my favorite sayings of the Buddha is, "if you find truth in any religion, accept that truth".

Its a principle I live my life by. Meaning, that I have met people of all faiths and those that profess none, that have illuminated my existance and shown me that life can be lived and understood in a more complex way than what is available on the surface.I see this possibility for illumination in every being that I encounter, so I strive to live with compassion and an open heart above all. I am often times mistunderstood but with compassion comes acceptance, so I remain patient.

One of my other favorite quotes is by French philosopher, Descartes. "I think therefore I am." One of the simplest, most powerful truths in life. It is the one thing around which there is no debate. It is one thing you can hang your hat on in this world of illusion.

Never be afraid to exist,

Speak it, Be it...

Love,

Gypsy

  1. Very interesting. I'm perplexed and need some help. I agree that it's possible to take something away from each person you encounter. I never considered it in terms of illumination though. Here lies the rub - What can you take away from a 60 watt bulb lighting a 5000 square foot room?
