Bearing Good Fruit

There are religious fundamentalists and ultra-conservatives in every religion. They are quite convinced they’re the only ones who are “saved” while everyone else is an outcast and doomed. Most religious believers (in every religion) are NOT like this. On the contrary, they are filled – or aiming to be filled – with love and compassion and wish to share this love with others. God (or whatever you wish to call It) is Love. Therefore, a person who does not exist as a loving presence in the world has not truly experienced God (or whatever you call It).

Jesus, the Christ, put it like this: “By their fruits you will know them.” (See Matthew 7:15-20.) Trust your gut, your heart. If you feel judged rather than loved and welcomed, look elsewhere. Mostly, look within your own heart – where Love, Light, and Peace always exist somewhere deep inside. You can learn to contact and trust this place deep within you. All the practices of Yoga are meant to help us find and live our lives from this place. And from this place, we can become the bearers of good fruit.

Peace to all! OM… OM… OM…
