"far beyond the destructive nature of fanaticism, i think the most damaging aspect of religion is the teaching of god as something outside of oneself. through a wide variety of practices we are able to connect to ‘god’; we learn from and influence the universe in this way. if there is an omnipotent force here, this is not it. trust that you are plenty ‘potent’ on your own."
