Exploring the soul and it's reaches.

Passing Trains

Understanding alone does not lend itself to enlightenment. Knowledge alone does not lend itself to wisdom. Compassion alone does not lend itself to sainthood. Where these three converge is the heart of true understanding, the heart of true wisdom and the heart of true compassion.

Through each of our experiences we create a picture, a picture of the human condition. Each is a unique opportunity for us all to learn from each other. The moment we discard someone’s experiences, someone’s path to understanding, we hinder ourselves from a greater understanding of the truth.

It is boundless, unconstrained by the bindings of a book, a prayer, the written word and the spoken word.  To seek a path closer to the divine, is to understand that each individual’s path is a personal and intimate relationship. It is a relationship with all that is and will be. And so when we seek solace in solitude or solace in our own path, we must remember that just outside, the universe is waiting. The divine is waiting.

Where our paths meet, another begins.
