The Religion of the Future 

 

The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion.

It should transcend personal God and avoid dogma and theology.

Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things natural and spiritual as a meaningful unity.

~  Albert Einstein

 

 

The Spiritual Quest

 

The quest for meaning begins with an inner awareness that there is more to life than physical existence. Something unformed and uncomprehended stirs deep within each of us, and over it the spirit hovers restlessly until we make a response. The response is one of yearning: a desire to love the infinite love, a desire to reach for truth, wisdom and understanding, and a desire to aspire to the harmony of a wholeness that we but dimly perceive. Once we have embarked on the quest, the search will be lifelong, for there is no end and it will call from us all that which is most noble in the human spirit.

~ Pauline M. Rudd

 

 

The Great Spirit

 

In developing a personal relationship with the Great Spirit,

you first pay attention to the fact

that you already have a relationship with Spirit.

Spirit is not something that you need to seek

or grab or go to Tibet to find.

Spirit lives in you;

It lives within your body, in every cell.

You can touch the Great Spirit

by touching your own aliveness.

All you need is a different attitude

about how big you are,

how deep you are,

how high you are.

You must be willing to own

that you are God;

even though you are

a minute part if the All That Is,

you are connected and one with it.

We are the Messiah, the Prophets, the Manifestations of God and the People of Spirit a Living Messiah in the Multitudes not one of us but all of us.  We are all Messengers of God and People of Spirit.  We are all equally responsible for the care and well being of each other and the World.....

Judgement day passes in the moment we decide something needs attention & we take positive action. Then there will be a great sorting out of people into groups, Inspired by Surah 99 Ayat 1-8

LIVING GALLERIES

 

Rainforest

I am caught

up in your magic.

How

I long

to wander forever

through your corridors,

to stop and wander

at your galleries

of living

sun-drenched treasures,

all encased

in liquid thought.

Sufferings and troubles actually

Help to strengthen one’s spirit.

So, smile and welcome each and every happening.

Step forward, forward, forward in calm repose.

Each step will bring us to the point of destination

No matter how far,

We needn’t worry.

Be firm on each stand and each step,

So that our heart is not loaded with hardship.

Left, and then right, and we will be there.

 

Poem from Bhikku Phra Ajan

One of my favorite quotes that actually helped me along the path is very simple in comparison to the many long (but rather good) quotes already put into this thread.

"Knowledge is not what is memorised. Knowledge is what benefits."  Imam Shafi'i
