We are One
As I read blogs and other devotional materials, I am often inspired by the words of Buddhist writers. Their insights point me in the direction I need to go, and I am increasingly persuaded that the kinship between Buddhism and the teachings of Jesus points to a single God that speaks to all persons of good will. As I pray each morning and listen for God, I believe God is saying that I must live a life that shows concern for the welfare of others and of the world, a life of contemplation and attention to the light of God within me. It is not for me to pass judgment on the rightness or wrongness of another's beliefs, but rather to follow the light that God gives me.
