The Only God is Fear

The heart of wisdom is a never ending thirst for the truth, with a little ‘t’. The deepest truth is not dark or bleak in any way. We are frail. We are mortal. We have love and hate and fear inside of us. Fear of this truth leads to ignorance, greed and sloth – and is what drives the great theist religions of this world.

Very interesting that we posted this on the same day. I wanted to blog this on Saturday night but was too stoned to post. The title comes from a comment the singer from "Rage Against the Machine" during their concert on Saturday evening. The rest was just personal belief, with a dash of classic buddhist thought thrown in for color.
