You Don’t Have To Be Buddhist
You don’t have to be Buddhist
to realise the Buddha’s Teaching.
You don’t have to be Christian
to understand Christ’s teaching.
You don’t have to be Buddhist to have compassion.
You don’t have to be Christian to love.
You don’t have to be a Theist or Atheist to care.
We don’t have to to be designated
by an ID tag with a name on it
to realise what we are.
We don’t have to be separated.
Binding ourselves to an ideal helps organise our approach to life,
but then we review, reflect and recognise that we are not different.
A Buddhist can recognise the truth in Theism and Atheism.
A Theist or Atheist can recognise both
the truth of pure uncontaminated consciousness,
and that which obscures that consciousness.
It’s like this.
to go beyond and drop the meditation.
The most marvellous thing about life is that there is always an answer!
