Whether or not they know it, most of the world's religions and philosophies start from the same point. Like spokes emanating from a wheel's hub, they converge upon and diverge from a common center.

"Vision Seeker," by Jerome Bushyhead
O Great Spirit
grant me a vision.
Let it be good.
Let it bless all people.

We are given Visions,
Sometimes they are real.
It is up to you
To accept them.

"Vision of a New Beginning," by Jerome Bushyhead
(L) "Vision Seeker," (R) "Vision for a New Beginning," Jerome Bushyhead

That center is God or universal truth, compassion and wisdom. Learn from all religions, all philosophies and use only one test- is the belief sincere, does it bear good fruit and does it seem right, is it in accord with what is good and just.

"i have had the gift of traveling death rows, prisons, and with gang kids...the "imperfect ones", as well as with celebrities, CEO's and the most revered, the "perfect ones"... on the outside. What *i* have learned is that we are all one." Anonymous

"We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow-men; along those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects." Herman Melville

"To be religious is to be sensitive to reality. Your total being- body, mind and heart, is sensitive to beauty and to ugliness, to the donkey tied to the post, to the poverty and filth in this town, to laughter and tears, to everything about you. From this sensitivity for the whole of existence springs goodness, love." Krishnamurti
                                  Life and the Universal

"Whoever touches the life of the child touches the most sensitive point of a whole which has roots in the most distant past and climbs toward the infinite future." Maria Montessori

Only when it is as painful to inflict emotional or physical pain on other living beings as it is on ourselves will we truly understand that all creation and humanity are one and that there are consequences for every action, a reaction for every action.

"Endless Search," by Jerome Bushyhead
"Endless Search,"
Jerome Bushyhead


There is a promise land.
You must travel a long road.
It is an Endless Search.

Man's greatest fear is a kind of existential terror- the fear of not being- of being unable to control one's own life, one's thoughts, one's emotions, actions and future. The ability to extend beyond ones self and find meaning in giving, a firm belief in God, universal truths and/or the power of ones own humanity and the oneness of humanity- to overcome the condition of isolation- is critical if this terror is to be manageable and turned into a constructive life force.

"A human being is part of a whole, called by us the "Universe," a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty." Albert Einstein
