I don't normally post about beauty and Buddhism or any religion. But I've recently been enlightened about this lotus plant and how much it adheres to certain concepts I've developed without really realizing it. 

See, I was raised in a religion that believes it's "the way" to heaven. As I'm sure many of you can relate, many religions have taught that "there way" is the one way too heaven. But really, how can any one man made religion speak the truth? The almighty, the grand master of all things (ALL THINGS: think about that, someone who's basically conducted the most amazing orchestra piece, with the best orchestra, has put together a symphony of parts that will ultimately mean we exist) and one RELIGION has the sole rights to say "HEY!! This is the way it happened! And you'd better believe it or else!!" 

That's impossible. Religion in itself is difficult to explain. Here:

Religion is an organized collection ofbeliefscultural systems, and world viewsthat relate humanity to the supernatural, and to spirituality.[note 1] Many religions have narrativessymbols, and sacred histories that are intended to createmeaning to life or traditionally to explain theorigin of life or the Universe. From their beliefs about the cosmos and human nature, they tend to derive moralityethics,religious laws or a preferred lifestyle. According to some estimates, there are roughly 4,200 religions in the world.[1]

You understand that? Me neither. What you need to realize is, religion is a man made object. And spirituality is the key. Because religions will keep one blinded and bounded in there philosophies of their "beliefs" but the truth will never be allowed to come forth.  

So, what am I espousing?  I don't like religion. I love spirituality. Can someone find that balance between religions that exist? And beliefs that exist. It's the most difficult sign...
