“I and thy Father are one.”
Jesus told us this, and this same teaching can be found in any of our sacred scriptures.
The Tao Te Ching doesn’t contain the word, “God,” but instead uses the word, “Tao,” or “the Way.” But reading this text we are urged to become one with Tao.
The Buddha never spoke of God, but in Buddhism we are urged to go within. We are told that “Enlightenment comes from within us.” We are told that everything is already there inside of us, and it is only a matter of uncovering and discovering it.
