After reading this I think of Ghandi's quote ( which probably came from Nipun and Viral),"If you don't see God in the next person you meet it is a waste of time looking for him further,"
I also think of Thomas Merton's quote which I just read:""Zen: not abstract at all in the way I see it. I use it for idol-cracking and things like that. Healthy way of keeping one's house clean. Gets the dust out quicker than anything else I know. I am not talking about purity, just breathing, and not piling up the mental junk."
Peace to all.
