Welcome To The Religion Network!

WELCOME! I'm Lisa Bowman. The Religion Network is an interfaith web site providing daily inspiration, quotes and religious resources. Faith and religion are precious gifts that bless.
However you worship, I hope this site enhances your journey. Let us meet regularly and build
a spiritual network. If you'd like to know my story, click on biography.



Just as the soft rains fill the streams,
pour into the rivers, and join together in the oceans,
so may the power of every moment of your goodness
flow forth to awaken and heal all beings--
those here now, those gone before, those yet to come.

By the power of every moment of your goodness,
may your heart's wishes be soon fulfilled
as completely shining as the bright full moon,
as magically as by a wish-fulfilling gem.

By the power of every moment of your goodness,
may all dangers be averted and all disease be gone.
May no obstacle come across your way.
May you enjoy fulfillment and long life.

For all in whose heart dwells respect,
who follow the wisdom and compassion, of the Way,
may your life prosper in the four blessings
of old age, beauty, happiness and strength.

Buddhist prayer


The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience,
kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness
and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

Galatians 5: 22
The Holy Bible


Love Them Anyway

People are unreasonable,
illogical and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you are kind,
People may accuse you
Selfish ulterior motives.
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful,
You will win some false friends
And true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today
Will be forgotten tomorrow.
Be good anyway.

Honesty and frankness
Will make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

Wheat you spend years building
May be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People need help,
But may attack you
If you try to help them.
Help them anyway.

In the final analysis,
It is between you and God.
It was never between
You and them anyway.

Attributed to Blessed Teresa of Calcutta (1910-1997)
Born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu to Albanian parents,
she won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979


Discourse on Lovingkindness

Let your love flow outward through the universe,
To its height, its depth, its broad extent,
A limitless love, without hatred or enmity.
Then as you stand or walk,
Sit or lie down,
As long as you are awake,
Strive for this with a one-pointed mind;
Your life will bring heaven to earth.

The Buddha (born circa 563-483 BC)
Siddhartha Gautama, founder of Buddhism

__________

Every man is guilty of all the
good he didn't do.

Voltaire (1694-1778)
French Enlightenment writer, philosopher, deist

_________

Let us practice the fine art of making every
work a priestly ministration. Let us believe
that God is in all our simple deeds and
learn to find him there.

A. W. Tozer (1897-1963)
American Protestant pastor and author


 

And now, the Last Word:

It is not how much you do, but how much
Love you put into the doing that matters.


Blessed Teresa of Calcutta
