October 10: Day 102
STONE TWO CONTINUED: Open: I partake of spiritual wisdom and knowledge from a variety of sources and open myself to different insights.
Instruction: Consider the similarities of religious thought.
Today we will look at one specific concept and how different religions shed a variety of light on the subject. The concept we have chosen is Loving-kindness.
Each of these quotes has something to share about loving-kindness. Each quote is able to expand our understanding of what loving-kindness means and how it is to be practiced, and these are only a few of the quotes available from only a few of the religions of the world. Those who would have a well-rounded world view of The Divine understand that rejecting insights from religions that we do not adhere to is simply impractical. Truth is truth, and if another religious organization has ways of explaining things that resonate with us, then why shouldn’t we learn from them?
Keep in mind, today, that we are not necessarily encouraging a study of world religions, although we see nothing wrong in that, but rather we are encouraging ourselves to keep an open mind When wisdom comes from outside our religious/spiritual experience of choice, we can learn from those traditions, too, if we haven’t labeled them as wrong, bad, or evil.
