Spirituality Quote of the Week

In my view, the realistic goal to be attained through spiritual practice is not some permanent state of enlightenment that admits of no further efforts, but a capacity to be free in this moment, in the midst of whatever is happening. If you can do that, you have already solved most of the problems you will encounter in life.

-- Sam Harris

Spirituality Quote of the Week

To understand that we are connected, that we belong to one another, is a powerful deterrent to fratricide, terrorism, slavery, and violence. We are not warring tribes. We are the same tribe.

Spirituality Quote of the Week

The concern for reconciliation finds expression in the simple human desire to understand others and to be understood by others. These are the building blocks of the society of man, the precious ingredients without which man's life is a nightmare and the future of his life on the planet doomed.

Spirituality Quote of the Week

We all become a well-disguised mirror image of anything that we fight too long or too directly. That which we oppose determines the energy and frames the questions after a while. You lose all your inner freedom.

-- Richard Rohr

Spirituality Quote of the Week

We meditate to discover our own identity, our right place in the scheme of the universe. Through mediation, we acquire and eventually acknowledge our connection to an inner power source that has the ability to transform our outer world.

No Name

As I understand it, "Tao" means "way" or "path," as in "the way things are" or "the way of life" or "the way to live life."

But it also points a finger at the source of all, the well from which time and space pour out into time and space. The garden of yin and yang.

Tao is not God. Tao is how we discover God. Tao is how we learn God. Tao is how we live God.

God is not God, either, by the way.

No name is.
