I think that there is life after death. There are a lot of hunted to know that.
To me Jesus and Buddha are real as my deceased parents. As far as the message of
the spirit of things, a you matter thing, having a good support system, immune
system with people who share the three gifts. The 3 things you give and keep
[your smile, your heart and your word]. Think how disappointing it is to learn,
all of your support went to ungrateful people.
I suspect that if many of history’s great spiritual teachers were gathered
in a room together they would feel quite comfortable and like they were among
kindred spirits. What they probably would not recognize is all the
doctrines, creeds, rituals and other believe systems meant in many ways to
idolize them as opposed to actually becoming what they, by their life’s
example, intended people to be.
