The spiritual path can be a lonely one, which is why it is always comforting to meet a fellow traveler. I had tea with one of my favorite co-inspirators the other day and came away with these gems:
"The competitive struggle for existence has got to end."
"When faced with someone whose beliefs seem completely opposite to mine - and incomprehensible - I try and remember that they are looking at the world through their own window. It may seem smaller than mine, or narrower than mine, or more clouded, but it is theirs and if I look hard enough I can find ways in which they are similar and I try and focus on those."
With many thanks to JM until we meet again.....
