Be an Open Skeptic

“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books.
Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.
Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.
But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all,
then accept it and live up to it.”
~ Buddha
“The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart.”
~ Buddha


"Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it."

Be a skeptic.

Doubt dogma.

Question the unquestionable.

Contest “common wisdom”.

Hear the heretic, whose words are prophetic.

Be ever open, to receiving uncommon wisdom –

From your Heart!
