Have you heard the Four Spiritual Laws?
- Dao loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life.
- You are fallen and separated from Dao.
- Dao sent the Buddha to show you the Way to be saved.
- If you believe in Buddha, renounce your sinful ways, and dedicate yourself 100% to following His path, you will be saved.
Had my friend shared this version with me while I was stoned on LSD, instead of the Christian one, who knows, maybe I would have seen the Buddha instead of Jesus. And, even if no salvation was ever required in any case, at least my belief would have been a lot cooler and more acceptable. Maybe I could have become somebody. Maybe my words would be esteemed and I would be endorsing books. Oh well.
