Greetings from the winter wonderland. For those that care I have not ran away or given up on my blog. Just trying to get settled in to the new job and a routine.
I work on the road doing inspections and currently I in hell or at least what hell would look like if it did ever freeze over. So hang in there for more of my blathering it will be coming soon enough.
Until next time…. Stay warm my friends.
I have to own something. When it comes to Christianity I have not been easy on them. I have dogged them a lot for their proselytizing. So I find myself here, on my Facebook page and on twitter constantly posting about my spiritual path and blurbs from buddha or videos that I find that talk about concepts that are central themes in a buddhist life. So am I a hypocrite? Am I now doing the thing I loathed them for. Am I proselytizing now that I have found a spiritual path that fits my reason and logic?
There is a fine line here between celebrating and pushing and I hope I can make a distinction. Moreover I hope that anyone that reads my blog or posts understands that I am celebrating my transformation and their involvement as friends family or complete strangers is welcomed as a part of the experience but as it were, no jacket is required. That is to say you don’t have to believe as I do to enjoy my journey along this path and it is not my intention or desire to ask of you to do so. I has no requirements of you.
I think that is one of the liberating things about getting away from a singular god concept. There is no either or. It is not with me or against me. For me your path is your path and you have as many lives as you need to get it right. Nor is your belief in Buddha a requirement to reach buddha. There are many paths to buddhahood. You are free to choose the one right for you.
Now I am free of judgement. So I am sorry for those that crossed my path during so many days of judgement. I see my error. You are free to proselytize and I am free to decline. I hope that does not offend.
