Learn from All Traditions

Learn from all traditions, cling to none. – Jay N. Forrest

There is only one church that would welcome an old pursuer of wisdom such as myself – the Unitarian Universalists.

The UU supports “A free and responsible search for truth and meaning.”

What does that mean? Rev. Paige Getty explains:

As responsible religious seekers, we recognize that we are privileged to be free, to have resources to pursue life beyond mere survival, to continually search for truth and meaning, to exist beyond bonds of dogma and oppression, and to wrestle freely with truth and meaning as they evolve.

To “continually search for truth and meaning” and to “exist beyond bonds of dogma and oppression,” means that you are free to travel your own spiritual path on your own unique journey.

Many travel a ready-made path. But I think Jiddu Krishnamurti is right,
“Truth is a pathless land.”

But this might confuse some. No path?

“Traveler, there is no path,” said Antonio Machado. “The path is made by walking.”
