I respect the choices of others and ask the same of them.
I walk the path to wholeness that is right for me.
There are as many spiritual paths as there are travelers. No singular way can be right for every person- each heart and every soul are in search of their own unique home. Buddhism, Judaism, Muslim, Shinto, Gnosticism, New Age Spirituality, Wicca, and the thousands of other paths to wholeness, each hold merit for the one who has chosen it. It is important to follow the road (or roads) that meet the needs of your inner being, regardless of the opinions of others. It is equally important that we ask that our choices be respected. And, just as we ourselves ask for respect, so too must we respect the way of others. On this day, as many choose to honor one of the world’s great teachers-Yeshua ben Joseph /Jesus- we can appreciate his messages of loving respect and tolerance “Judge not, that you be not judged.” (Matthew 7:1). And, “And as you would have that men should treat you, treat them likewise.” (Luke 6:31). And, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22:39)
