4 STASHED IDEAS
"The Bible did not arrive by fax from heaven The Bible is the product of man, my dear. Not of God. The Bible did not fall magically from the clouds. Man created it as a historical record of tumultuous times, and it has evolved through countless translations, additions, and revisions. History has never had a definitive version of the book."
One day in the 1970s, when I was working on the translation of the Vimalakirti Sutra, an ancient Buddhist text. something hit me: The term bodhichitta, which was usually translated to mean "awakening mind." actually meant a spirit that bursts forth with love and compassion for all beings. For the first time, spirituality really meant something for me. Thoughts, words, and actions are "spiritual" only if universal love the motive, compassion the cause, happiness the aim, and responsibility the active principle.
