but you don’t have to do it alone.

dogma free

 

 

 

 

 I think we should all have a dogma-free zone

Somewhere in our world

A place:

Where we can think our own thoughts and listen to our own voice

Where all beliefs are considered as assumptions until

we can directly experience them for ourselves

Where the “truth” is not considered a four-letter word.

A guru-free zone:

Where we can bow down to ourselves and honour our own wisdom

Where Buddhists can grow their hair really long and 

All Christians, Hindus, Jews, and Sikhs can hang-up their sacred hats

before they enter

(and when they leave, will put on someone else’s hat)

A place where fundamentalists, if they enter, will explode from their own inner bombast.

A spiritual name-free zone

Where we can pretend we are Popeye and say

“I yam what I yam” and totally accept ourselves

Where we can look in the mirror without fear and see total magnificence

A place where, when everything seems to be falling apart,

we can let go

and let it all fall into place

Where we can be okay about not knowing anything

and allow ourselves to experience everything…

exactly the way it is.

That would be a great place.

I think we all should start by writing “Dogma-free zone” on a sticker

Slap it on our forehead and look intently at each other with great seriousness…

Then laugh our heads off!
