I salute the light within your eyes where the whole Universe dwells. For when you are at that center within you and I am that place within me, we shall be one.” – Crazy Horse
How difficult it is, and how lovely it would be, to be one with each other. To truly know each other as mirror’s of each other. To intimately know the uniqueness of another and take that uniqueness on as part of ourselves.
We would literally never be able to see another person as “other.” We would only be capable of looking into the face of a human being and see ourselves. Think how this would change our world! Think how our priorities — financial and emotional and philosophical — would change.
I do believe that the original sources of all religions should be taught, because with that we will find our similarities, not just our differences. I believe that if Mohammed, Buddha, Jesus, and Moses all got together they would be best of friends because the spiritual basis of all religions is something that builds unity.
Something as a Unitarian Universalist I totally agree with!!! The UU church has a wonderful inclusive religious education program that teaches the essentials of all religions. There are more similarities among religions than there are differences. Therefore, tolerance is key!!! I wish more people “got” that…..
It is not the end of the physical body that should worry us. Rather, our concern must be to live while we’re alive – to release our inner selves from the spiritual death that comes with living behind a facade designed to conform to external definitions of who and what we are.
The fact that I can plant a seed and it becomes a flower, share a bit of knowledge and it becomes another’s, smile at someone and receive a smile in return, are to me continual spiritual exercises.
Each one of us has our own evolution of life, and each one of us goes through different tests which are unique and challenging. But certain things are common. And we do learn things from each other’s experience. On a spiritual journey, we all have the same destination.
A. R. Rahman
Enlightened leadership is spiritual if we understand spirituality not as some kind of religious dogma or ideology but as the domain of awareness where we experience values like truth, goodness, beauty, love and compassion, and also intuition, creativity, insight and focused attention.
