The spiritual winds of unattachment that propelled Buddha and the spiritual winds of love that propelled Jesus—lifted and transformed rather than labeled and judged people. Yet, the first followers and followers thereafter often focused energy on labels of sins and judgments of people—for money, power, and prestige.
Let no person attest that his or her certification of spirituality is highest among people. Let no collection of people attest that their revelations are highest among Spirits. Let no religion dictate and control your spiritual conversations. Let no religion profit from the blindness of tradition, nor ignore the traditions from which it borrows.
May the glorification of one cease to serve the dogmas that denigrate many.
