Six billion ways

I was reading Goddess Leonie’s blog this morning and she was talking about her spiritual beliefs.  She talked about a time she went to see the Dalai Lama speak.  This is what she said about it and I loved it so much I had to put it here.  Hope she doesn’t mind:

I went to see the Dalai Lama speak a year ago, and one of my favourite things he said was “Too many people follow their parent’s religion just because they think they should, even when they are not passionate about it. Find something you are passionate about. There are six billion of us, and there are six billion paths to God.”

What a wonderful thought.
