Living in Love beyond Beliefs

To have some deep feeling about Buddhism is not the point; we just do what we should do, like eating supper and going to bed. This is Buddhism.

I am not trying to be anybody or anything. I am not trying to be a good Christian, a good Buddhist, a good Chaplain, a good man, a good anything. I am in love with Life: that is enough for me. One reason I love Jesus so much is that I do not think he would make a big deal out of anything but Life. As living with a sense of belonging to more than one faith, I am still, you could say, a Christian. But, I do not need to have any special devotion to it. A Path is a way. So, in some sense, my devotion to Christ has made me, it seems, less of what most Christians would understand as a Christian. I prefer simply to love Jesus, and others - if that is a good Christian, then, I hope I am. But the Heart does not really belong anywhere; Grace is everywhere.

The Sacred in Me bows to the Sacred in You
