Daily Reflection: the sacred way

Sacred? Secular? Now we can find flawless motivation to let our goodness surface.

Soul Management

narrativeThere was a time when the sacred way

was the only way of life.

Religion had the monopoly

so we bought blessings and

made donations so we could get to Heaven.

Our daily lives presented constant opportunities

to be virtuous and accumulate merit,

or sin and wait for punishment,

but on someone else’s terms.

nothingnessNow we are secular, steering clear of religion.

Fame and fortune have the monopoly.

But this is the ideal chance to find our true nature

on our own terms, without external pressure.

Our motivation to live virtuously and accumulate merit

can be completely pure, our motivation flawless.

Heaven is here and now on the glorious Earth,

and the gods live around us every second.

There are no punishments to be exacted

no rewards to be won

just the grinding wheel of adversity to polish

our rough diamond so it sparkles.
