“Bite off more than you can chew, then chew it.” – Ella Williams
The life of Jesus, like the stories of the Buddha, have been told in thousands of different ways. Whether one is a Christian or a Buddhist certainly ones choice of stories, explanations, and interpretations will vary. In the end both Teachers emphasized that what was important was the life we lived, and not so much theirs. Was what we believed about ourselves, and not so much about them. Even so their lives and teachings remain the central inspiration for my own and continue to inform my practice, as they do for millions.
