Tao & Zen

Amazing how simple things get twisted around with clever words. First, there is no such thing available to us as “the truth” because that’s an absolute, and absolutes cannot exist, or reveal themselves within the created order – they’d destroy it in an instant. However, do not despair, everything is truth, such as it is, since it cannot be anything else. Let me tell you who are the ones who have “the truth” – they’re the ones who come to your door peddling their religion; who tell you if you do not believe what they believe, you and your loved ones are destined for a pit of burning sulphur to be tortured there for eternity, in keeping with the dictates of their unconditionally loving deity. They are the ones who behead innocents and stone women to death in the name of Allah. They’re the ones who bless instruments of war and live in luxury while extracting money from those who can least afford it. They’re the ones who claim heaven while creating hell on earth. That is where you will find “the truth.” [from the wisdom of YLea, one of my Teachers]
