My Simple Religion

This is my simple religion.

There is no need for temple; no need for complicated philosophy.

Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.

~ Dalai Lama ~

 

Each and every day, I try to live by the words, actions, and teachings of Jesus, the Blessed Mother, Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Buddha, Dalai Lama, and other great teachers and prophets.  Their words are so powerful and inspiring.  For years, I lost myself.  I allowed myself to be overshadowed and influenced by others.  Through trials, tribulation, loss, and hurt, I have reclaimed my journey.  My journey has allowed me to find an honest way to spread God’s love and follow my path.  Kindness…

Kindness is a simple religion.

Kindness cannot be found in buildings.

Kindness cannot be found in religion.

Kindness cannot be found in untruths.

Kindness is found in actions.

Kindness is found in words.

Kindness is found in self.

Kindness lives in the heart.

Kindness lives in your heart.

Kindness lives in my heart.

Kindness is my simple religion.

Whoever pursues righteousness and kindness will find life, righteousness and honor.

~ Proverbs 21:21 ~
