What I feel in my heart must make scence in my mind.
The following is a saying from Wayne Dwyer's book.
Do not believe what you have heard.
Do not believe in tradition because it is handed down many generations.
Do not believe anything that has been spoken of many times.
Do not believe because the written statements come from old sages.
Do not believe in conjecture.
Do not believe in authority or teachers or elders.
But after careful observation and analysis, when it agrees with reason and will
benefit one and all, then accept it and live by it. Buddha.
If Buddha followed his own saying here he would be a Christian for reason is the
cornerstone of Christianity. All other religions separate faith and reason and this is
the seed of thier destruction. Folly is thier rational. Faith is not a wishful desire,
faith is acting upon that which you know to be true. Faith requires more than belief
it requires actions. Hence the scripture, Faith without works is dead.
The truth will stand up under any amount of scrutiny.
