Travel to find the beautiful

Tree - Bodensee

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.

True religion

DalaiCharlie Hebdo’s cartoons, Easter, an invitation to a christening, religion based conflicts world-wide, heated exchange about religion with a teenager. Questions about religion have been keeping me busy lately. And not only me.

Religion has always been and will always be a big global topic. Unfortunately it does not only bring us the inner and outer peace we are longing for. But the fault does not lay with the religions themselves but due to pure human stupidity and narrow-mindedness.

Maybe if we all converted to the  religion of a great, much admired human being, the world could finally become a better one:

“My true religion is kindness”

Dalai Lama (Tenzin Gyatso)
