- “The time of waiting for God to act is long passed, lost in the mists of time. The moment of rising to our own godliness is upon us. . . The Messiah is Here and Now.”
After the recent carnage in France, the Dalai Lama was asked what should be done concerning such atrocities on this planet, and if he thought people should pray for Paris? This statement formed the central part of his answer:
“We cannot solve this problem only through prayers. I am a Buddhist and I believe in praying. But humans have created this problem, and now we are asking God to solve it. It is illogical. God would say, solve it yourself because you created it in the first place.”
So fundamental is the truth behind this response that it should serve to eradicate any doubts left lingering in the minds of those who believe that only divine intervention can save them – or indeed the planet – from whatever it is that threatens to overwhelm both. . .
