and Buddha said:
“Overcome anger by love, overcome evil by good.” Dhammapada 17:3
God’s messengers to the world, a struggling humanity ruled by ego, clearly state the essence of Spirit is love as expressed by peaceful, nonviolent existence. When personal ego no longer rules our behavior or thinking, the Kingdom replaces the incessant “me, me, me” demands of ego. We are then free to love humanity with unimaginable compassion because “I” am no longer the center of the universe. Take heart knowing that few of us achieve this state of bliss; however, it is the journey, the trek with the mystics that strengthens and matures us into God’s love for his creation. This God experience occurs through us.
