Nothing is sadder than a person following a religion.
Each of us was given a unique piece of the spiritual puzzle that can contribute to our greater understanding.
Religion teaches you to discard your own piece of the puzzle in order to follow somebody else’s.
The path to enlightenment is wrought with pain. As we evolve, we shed layers of hurt.
Each layer becoming more painful as more of the wound is exposed. Until one day we shed the wound itself and forget how painful it ever was, being left with only the lessons learned and the memory of who we used to be.
