My journey has spanned many years, many books, and many miles traveled, four thousand to be exact. I sometimes imagine my journey is made some way by all of humankind, an effort we all share to correlate our beliefs within the parameters of authenticated history and science. While I was never a Church goer, I do not believe in nor do I practice religion. I accept that we all have our own perceptions, and it certainly isn't my place to point a finger and say who is right or wrong. There is no right or wrong. All paths lead to the same beginning.
At my deepest core, I somehow knew their to be truth in the concepts of Karma and reincarnation and that did not seem to be part of Christianity.
I also recognize that suffering itself is based on ignorance....the clinging to the illusion that the world and existence itself has concrete tangibility. All of my suffering was relieved through spiritual practice, which brings about the dissolution of ignorance.
You can't be spiritual and ignorant.
There’s no notion of sin, there’s no notion of good and evil, there’s only ignorance and suffering. And this is the most important thing, it places all emphasis on compassion; you do not embrace negativity.
Buddhism asks the fundamental question: What is life and what is the point of existence?
