A Quote by Kalindi La Gourasana on god, love, religion, and many paths

Everybody on this planet has a connection to God. And there are many, many, many paths. In all of the religions everybody is connecting to God in so many different ways. It is all the same one God manifesting - different names, different faces, different forms, different times throughout history.

All paths lead to the same end result, as all religions have the same common denominator:

Love of God

A Quote by Earon on religion, cautionary tales, sacred texts, commandments, garden of eden, and tower of babel

Those who teach sacred texts as the word of God often dishonor the wisdom of our ancestors and distract us from self-awareness.  The stories are often cautionary tales about human ego - calcified into commandments, bones without flesh, which distort, misinform and mislead those with good intentions.  Examples include the Garden of Eden and the Tower of Babel, and are found in all religions.  These are about human nature - not God.

A Quote by Candi Taylor-Jeter on religion, candi, god, know, reflection, and created

Religions are a reflection of who man thinks God is, which is usually wrong.  The best way to know who God really is, is to  observe nature, know who you are, be who God created you to be and who God is will show up.

A Quote by Dalai Lama on religion, dalai lama, dali lama, criticism, anger, and purpose

The very purpose of religion is to control yourself, not to criticise others. Rather, we must criticise ourselves. How much am I doing about my anger? About my attachment, about my hatred, about my pride, my jealousy? These are the things which we must check in daily life.
