Every person from every religion should watch this film. EPIC!

A pre-eminent voice for liberal Christianity, John Shelby Spong was the Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Newark for 24 years before his retirement in 2000. His admirers acclaim his making contemporary theology accessible to the ordinary lay person—he's considered a champion of an inclusive faith by many both inside and outside the Christian church. His challenges to the church have also made him a target of hostility, fear, and death threats. Calling himself "a joyful, passionate, convinced believer in the reality of God," he seeks not to create a new religion, but to reform the church he loves.

Life is beautifully simple.

Life is a balance.

Life is beautifully simple. The eb and flow of the forces of nature seem out of our control. However each of us has the power to be a part of it, without being separate from it.

Human life, and all that we create is a part of nature, though right now we have become a force of nature. Uncontrollable.

Do not concern your self with dogma, it will only weigh you down, over complicate your practice and your life.

Focus EVERYTHING on your actions, thoughts and words. With EVERYT
HING you do, speak and think you are CREATING KARMA.

Every tiny deed, every thought you are creating.

Focus your life, and your practice on doing good and becoming a better person.

I feel so frustrated sometimes as how deeply simple this concept is, many people refuse to accept it.

Why? How? How can life be so simple? How can happiness be so simple? Surely I must suffer greatly? Surely I must have to dance around in circle, swing a chicken above my head, turn fifteen times with the sunset, surely then I will become happy....??

No you will not.

You will find happiness when you wake up and realise that YOUR LIFE is your own that you have to stop blaming others, and trying to control others in a way to deflect the attention away from your own problems and darkness.

Look in the mirror (The Gohonzon) and polish your own life, till it shines brightly before you try to polish the life of others.

Jesus said "He who is without sin should cast the first stone..." something that always sticks with me through out my life.

We should never ever ever judge others, unless our lives gleam with perfection.

Something we all know is not possible.

Be human, be imperfect. Just be your self.

Practicing Buddism is no walk in the park

Life is no walk in the park.

Using your Buddhist practice to find happiness is not a walk in the park. 

Confronting your fears and facing those inner doubts has to be the hardest thing any one can do.

In Nichiren Buddhism, we call it doing your "Human Revolution"

What I love about my Buddhist practice, or at least, MY, interpertation of it, is that, THE WORK, that has to be done is down to me.

If I really want those changes, if I really want to find that happiness I must seek it, find it, collect it.

The happiness most people seek seems illusive, it seems like a destination that you arrive at after a lot of hard work.

But I do not agree. 

The kind of solid happiness most of us seek comes from a solid foundation of self. To be in a place in your life where you feel so secure and strong that nothing can shake you.

This to me is happiness. Life without fear.

Growing up a very insecure and fearful person, I found my self feeling deeply unhappy, lost, empty and alone through out my twenties, there are many reasons for this.

After I began to understand the SIMPLE principles of a Buddhist practice, I realised that the constant; "I need to do this, I should do that, it would be great if I could find a book or a course that could help me feel better about my self"

I was looking for something outside of my self to fix, what I thought were missing parts.

What I have come to realise is that the missing part is my opinions or beliefs about who or what I am, and what I am capable of.

We are all imperfect, and when we realise that its OK to be imperfect, we can relax and enjoy the little time we have on this planet.

I realised today just how many demands I make on my self on a daily basis; 

At all times, I must be funny, I must be thin, I must be interesting, I must be tall, I must be creative, I must I must I must....

All these demands, daily... most of the time I wear my self out.... this leads to anxiety which makes life rather tedious sometimes.

We can only look in the mirror and begin to see the imperfection and realise that that is who we are...all we are right now is a collection of all our positive and negative qualities.

The sooner we can let go and have FAITH in our selves as people and our lives, we can become happy.

When I use the word FAITH, that FAITH is me. That FAITH that I am building and developing, is in MYSELF and my potential as human being.

Not something external, a person or a thing. But the deep and solid FAITH that no matter what life throws at me, I can handle it, I will survive it.

We are such complex creatures and our minds are a rabbit warren of ideas, beliefs, perspectives and fears. 

Buddhist practice for me is a tool to help you develop a strong sense of self. 

We just have to see past the dogma and look deeply in to our own eyes and ask

"Who am I?" and "What do I want from this life?"

Simple questions, but nearly always difficult and elusive answers.
