It's Okay

Are you GLBTQ* (whatever politically correct acronym) and struggling with spirituality?  Hindu, Buddhism, Judaism, Muslim, pagan, and especially fundamentalist Christian?  My friend, L, shared with me a couple of blog articles that match my perspective.  If you give them a look, I hope you find them helpful:

These Hallowed Grounds: “All I Have to Offer” by Micah

Why I Can’t Say Love the Sinner / Hate the Sin Anymore

See my own post, Throw a Stone — Only Because I Love You.

About DogDharma

Dog Dharma is written by a human who loves dogs and who believes dogs have attained enlightenment. The human behind Dog Dharma came from humble origins, has faced many trials, enjoyed many adventures, and taken a path less traveled. He claims no special privilege or expertise, and remains humble. Dog Dharma‘s author has learned a few things along the way, and has much yet to learn. He has been told by many people that he has a talent for writing, and aspires to write a book, but is a little too lazy and disorganized, so his blog will suffice for now. He opens a window into his life in the hope that some of his words may be of comfort, some may be a beacon or warning, and perhaps he will connect with like-minded souls. Everything shared comes from a place of openness and honesty, but with no claim that he possesses the Truth. People and places mentioned should be taken as pseudonyms. In many cases, details may be an amalgamation of actual events disguised to protect the “innocent.” Nothing written is to be taken as actual fact, but as the author of Dharma Dog‘s limited understanding. From the mouths of the Beatles: In the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make

      thenoveilst, I have had a long interest in the Buddha’s Dharma, as well as Advaita Vedanta along with the likes of Ramana Maharshi, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, Sri Aurobindo, and others. I also think that dogs are bodhisattvas who have attained enlightenment, and remain behind to help us suffering, misguided humans find out way. 🙂

        I still don’t understand what you mean with the dogs, but as far as the Vedas points out, dogs and cats are jivas going down in the animal chain, but cows and monkeys are coming up through that chain to again get a human form of life. Anyhow, Namaste 🙂

    Re: dogs. my personal view that they are the embodiment of compassion and know better than most humans how to live in the ever-present Now. If we follow their example, we learn how to love unconditionally, and do not worry about the past or the future. Namaste. 🙂
