Words are Woefully Over Rated

Postby pilgrim-seeker_tom » Fri Oct 13, 2017 2:34 am

Who can prove that the following pairs of words don't point to the same reality?

1) Jesus and Mary

2) Apollo and Athena

3) Buddha and Bodhisattva

4) Yin and Yang

Western cultures have long preferred to anthropomorphize the Divine ... Eastern cultures not so much.

Not 'seeing' it is a form of blindness ... an indication of a consciousness not fully awakened.

No healthy normal person chooses blindness ... the appropriate time ... the time for the scales to fall off our eyes ... has simply not come ... yet!
"Do not be influenced by the importance of the writer, and whether his learning be great or small; but let the love of pure truth draw you to read. Do not inquire, “Who said this?” but pay attention to what is said”
