Faith is a state of openness or trust. To have faith is like when
you trust yourself to the water. You don't grab hold of the water when
you swim, because if you do you will become stiff and tight in the
water, and sink. You have to relax, and the attitude of faith is the
very opposite of clinging, and holding on. In other words, a person
who is fanatic in matters of religion, and clings to certain ideas
about the nature of God and the universe becomes a person who has no
faith at all. Instead they are holding tight. But the attitude of
faith is to let go, and become open to truth, whatever it might turn
out to be.
- Alan Wattsposted to AlongTheWay
"If we penetrate deeply into all aspects and all areas of life,
we will find that hidden behind everything is love. We will
discover that love is the force, the power and inspiration
behind every word and every action. This applies to all people,
irrespective of race, caste, creed, sect, religion or of what work people do."
Embracing the Mystery
"The most important question one can ask is not whether or not God exists but rather how much reality can one live with."
"Completely surrender to what is beyond the labels. To surrender is to see without the old mind. This is true freedom and the beginning of true religion."
"Christian spirituality is about finding the Christ within. Christ within lives. Christ is risen, here and now!"
"Don't think. Be."
--Sri Ramana Maharshi
