“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Also if we don't get too carried away with the jargons specific to one's religion, then we'll find in a lot the cases, it's just a matter of sematics. We all agree on a higher plane of truth that is beyond words and description, and it could only be witnessed through personal effort and experience. Some will call it God, others call it Nibbana. As long as we leave enough moving room for the vocabulary, there would be more common ground instead of stark constrast. Who cares if we call a person who spent all their life in a foreign country taking care of the lepers as someone who is serving God or someone who is practicing a boddhisatta's paramis..

Then the Blessed One, picking up a tiny bit of dust with the tip of his fingernail, said to the monk, "There isn't even this much form...feeling...
perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."
