Spirituality doesn't ensure holiness. It simply asks: Who are you?
Jesus doesn't think the question so many ask is that important -- namely, whether someone has accepted him as their personal lord and savior. He'd rather they accept themselves.
That's the truth.
The buddhas and Zen masters of all times and places have emerged only on account of search for truth. Present day seekers are also in search of truth. Only when you attain truth will you be done; until you have attained it, you will repeat your former ways.And the truth, they say, sets us free.
- Lin Chi (d 867?)
First, it seems, we have to wrestle.
