Post 20150923 (3 Days, 3 Quotes–Quote #2)

Day two of the challenge. I’ll repost the rules, although I remind you, I’m not following the rules. See yesterday’s post if you want to see who I tagged.

In a nutshell, here are the rules:

1. Thank the blogger, who nominated you.

2. Share one new quote on three consecutive days on your blog. They can be from anywhere, anyone, or anything that inspires you… Which means, it can be from yourself, too!

3. On each of the three days, nominate 3 more bloggers to carry on this mission impossible endeavor (if they dare!)

Here’s my quote for Day Two:

Our theories of the eternal are as valuable as are those which a chick which has not broken its way through its shell might form of the outside world.
–Buddha

Another great quote about the ultimate nature of reality. I’m something of an agnostic about metaphysical matters, and I’ve always felt that people should be agnostic. In fact, they shouldn’t feel that they know. Every single person I have met who is sure about what the universe is all about has turned out to be closed-minded and judgmental, and not just about metaphysical matters. I honestly think science holds a lot more answers than any other discipline because of it’s intellectual rigor. But that’s because the driving force of science (and the truth behind this quote) is always we don’t know, but we should try to find out through experience.

  1. One of the keys to Buddhism’s resonance with me was as Thich Nhat Hanh’s emphasis on the personal experience as the guide to awareness. Don’t feel compelled to the “experts.” Or as Buddha said of himself do not mistake the moon for the finger pointing at the moon.
