The West for the most part is (so it would seem) somewhat "God-Centric" (even for those of us who identify as atheists ) The words "God" or "Jesus" enters into every day conversation for many people, regardless of whether they believe or not.... (including many Western Buddhists) ...
Being born in the West is like these terms of expressions are programmed into one's psyche..."Oh my god" or "Jesus Christ" "God knows" or "God bless" "God almighty" "There by the grace of god go I" ....and so on...(at times the odd swear word is thrown in to add flavour)
Do you still use "God-Centric" expressions in conversation ?
Should Buddhist practitioners phase out using such terms of expression ?
What could be used to replace some everyday "God-Centric " expressions ?
Please try 'not' to take this post (or for that matter 'life') too seriously :winky:
"Oh my Buddha Nature....God and his son are everywhere !"
