"Westerners must stop romanticizing spirituality and just practice. There is no need to convert to a particular religion, to do so is to become partial to a particular viewpoint and effectively blind ourselves to other vantage points. This leads to violence. There is no need to go off in search of truth. The place to practice your dharma is right here and right now. There is also no need to vilify religion or mistakenly separate it out from your practice. Just practice. Practice and engage life when your rise from your cushion."
— The Zen Humanist (via zenhumanism)
"Because of your smile, you make life more beautiful."
