Every day, priests minutely examine the Dharma
And endlessly change complicated sutras.
Before doing that, though, they should learn how to read the love letters
sent by the wind and the rain, the snow and the moon.
You may freely replace priests with ministers, rabbis, imams, gurus, or televangelists.
You may freely replace Dharma with Bible, Torah, Koran, or Bhagavad Gita.
You may freely replace sutras with commandments, verses, visions, prophesies, judgements or any other claim to know the mind and will of the universe.
Or you may just replace all the words ever known with those love letters from nature and be at peace.

Nice posting. Do you know about this edition of the Gita?
You can replace all of those things with whatever you want, but you can never replace the wind, or the rain, or the snow or the moon with anything else.
Where did you find that quote, Deb? I love it… it really “preaches” to me!
