quote du jour ~leloup

Do not believe anything merely because you are told it is so, because others believe it, because it comes from tradition, or because you have imagined it. Do not believe what your teacher tells you merely out of respect. Believe, take for your doctrine, and hold true to that which, after serious investigation, seems to you to further the welfare of all beings. (47)

~Jean-Yves Leloup, Compassion and Meditation: The Spiritual Dynamic between Buddhism and Christianity
