our practice was our life
and forests were our church?
What if religion was each other?
If our practice was our life?
If prayer was our words?
What if the temple was the Earth?
If forests were our church?
If holy water – the rivers, lakes, and oceans?
What if meditation was our relationships?
If the Teacher was life?
If wisdom was self-knowledge?
If love was the center of our being?
- Ganga White, Founder of the White Lotus Foundation
If our temple was the earth and holy water, our rivers, lakes, and oceans
We'd be in much better shape indeed.
