A Universal Religion


If only the entire world adopted a Universal Religion. One where we focus on the strengths of all the religions and aim to transcend the weaknesses that hold them back.

Investigating the religions of the world it is clear to see that everyone is worshipping the same principle.

If everyone were free to hold on to what they believe, what makes them happy and content. If everyone adopted this attitude there would be no hatred or religious fanaticism.

We could all coexist happily. Free from suffering.

Connection is Key

We are wired as human beings to connect with the world around us. To connect with nature, to connect with others, and to connect with ourselves. 

It is in our nature to feel empathy and compassion for the pain and suffering of others. Nothing could be clearer at this time of great suffering across the globe. We see people suffering and in need, and subconsciously a thought arises: ‘something must be done!’

In great times of need, our love and compassion for our friends and families extends and reaches out to all sentient beings. 

If we could increase the time that our love for humanity would extend to every living being, taking it beyond natural disasters and into every waking moment. Think how much more light there would be in the world. 

Every moment there is a choice. To include or to exclude. To open or to close. To be selfless or to be selfish. Let’s make the right choice. All the time.
