Tell me about it. I’m experiencing the same thing every time I go back to my hometown. You have to do this or else. You have to do this because Buddha say so, blablabla. Some of the teachings come from none other than just normal human beings.
I’m a follower of Buddhist but more as a lifestyle rather than religion. Even Buddha himself asked his disciples to always question the teachings and not just follow blindly.
Thank you for this beautiful reminder, Don! Always learn so much from your writing! :)
