NOTE: I am redoing this whole site, so check back about once a week for new material. *UNDER CONSTRUCTION*
I write articles based on experience, insight, reading books
and also learning from a live teacher. My intention in writing is to inspire
and encourage you or to spark something in you. I do not claim enlightenment.
You may be on a higher level than I spiritually. This site is for whomever God
feels will gain benefit.
I believe that the Christ has spoken many words that are
encouraging or inspiring. I am speaking of the Christ, whether in Jesus,
Buddha, Mohammed, Moses or Krishna, etc. The
Christ was manifest strongly in each of these men and is our Shepherd. The
Christ also resides, though not as powerfully manifest, in each person. Another
term for the Christ is the Buddha Nature or the Atman.
Christ in Jesus said:
18 “The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
to proclaim good
news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of
sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,
19 to proclaim the year of
the Lord’s favor.”
Christ as Buddha said:
I am the king of dharma, free to teach the dharma,
Appearing in the world to bring
peace and comfort
To all living
Those who have not yet been saved will be
those who have not yet been set free will be set free;
those who have
had no rest, will have rest;
those who have not yet attained nirvana will attain nirvana.
Lotus Sutra translated by Gene Reeves
Christ as Krishna has said:
Truth has many aspects. Infinite Truth has infinite
expressions. Though the sages speak in diverse ways, they express one and the
same Truth. Ignorant is he who says, ‘What I say and know is true; others are
wrong.’ It is because of this attitude of the ignorant that there have been
doubts and misunderstandings about God. This attitude it is that causes disputes
amongst men. -- Chap.15, Book 11 of the Srimad Bhagavatum, The Wisdom of God
