Vision is Mind
Mind is Empty
Emptiness is Clear Light
Clear Light is Union
Union is Great Bliss

"As Buddhists, we should aim to develop relationships that are not predominated by grasping and clinging. Our relationships should be characterised by the brahmaviharas of metta (loving kindness), mudita (sympathetic joy), karuna (compassion), and upekkha (equanimity)."

Just thought of a nice little example to clarify a point or two in that last post.

Some religious people feel morally superior to non-religious people and pity the latter for "not getting it".

Some non-religious people feel morally superior to religious people and pity the latter for "falling prey to delusion".

It is the feelings of moral superiority and pity that are blameworthy, not religion or lack of religion, and those blameworthy qualities can be identified and rooted out.
