(07-14-2015 01:46 AM)Zelcorpion Wrote:  The difference of course is that the saints left their years of meditation with greater love and understanding and even understood the weaknesses of their specific faiths as the leaders of the church were mainly learned men who had 100% of their wisdom out of books which could be sometimes interpreted in many ways. Saints themselves confirmed truth within and reached beyond.

And strangely enough the high saints of Christianity (St. Francis), Buddhism (Milarepa), Taoism (Lai Tsi/Lao Tse) and even Islam (Rumi, Khalil Gibran) - they had a strikingly similar outlook on life. It seems as if the core of their wisdom and love for all of life was the same as they used their respective religions mainly as a springboard.

Along these lines, try a book called Three Pillars of Zen which is a pretty solid introduction to the "religion". (I use quotation marks because Zen is more of an outgrowth from Buddhism than a religion in itself, more of a method of seeing the world than adherence to a set of principles.)

Most of the mystical traditions in religions I think are pointing at or on journeys to the same experience or the same source.
