Be light unto yourselves. Rely upon yourself; do not depend on anyone else. –Buddha
Buddhism is a unique religion because at its inception Buddha made it very clear that there is no God. And that we shouldn’t rely on anyone or anything outside self. The above quote is attributed to him as his last words. We’re exhorted to never take anyone else’s word for anything. We must experiment with truth ourselves…
We’re alone and we’re not, all at the same time. We must rely on self but then never forget that the Universe assists us at every turn. God lives inside us and we mostly don’t know it. Life is full of conundrums and is a bag full of mysteries. That’s what makes it so juicy! Enjoy!!
