Thought for today

just as dew refreshes
the wilting flower,

tenderness restores
the grieving heart.

Thank you.

Buddhism..I think its the best religion of all.

Robert said...

Hi Dusty. Thanks for stopping by the blog. I suppose my only problem with something being the best is that it tends to mean that something else has to be the worse. :)

Dusty said...

Well, to be Fair Robert..

I think all organized religion sucks.

But I do believe in Jesus's teachings. ;)

Robert said...

Dusty - that comment made my day, but it caused me to wonder, do you think Buddhism is an organized or disorganized religion? :)

Dusty said...

Honestly I am not sure. It is probably an organized religion, but I give it a pass I guess.

I found a UCC church once that was a good place to hang your religious hat, but after Pastor Dave left, it melted down into the usual pompous, negative type of stuff.
