“When we question openly, our spiritual practice becomes a living experience, without dogma or fixed ideas.”
The teachings say that the confusion and suffering we experience is temporal or “adventitious,” which means that it is non-essential…not part of our basic nature. This is a lot different from the idea of original sin.
I notice when I fall in love – which happens all the time! – I feel appreciation for and openness toward that being. The feeling of being in love, to me, means that I haven’t decided who someone is or what I want them to be.
