My Boyfriend or Best Friend calls himself athiest, but identifies as a Buddhist. I am a Christian, but also have a Buddhist outlook on life. Does anyone have any ideas for vows or readings that aren’t overtly religious? I’m willing to take words from any faith (even Christianity).
I like this, “Through my love for you, I want to express my love for the whole cosmos, the whole of humanity, and all beings. By living with you, I want to learn to love everyone and all species. If I succeed in loving you, I will be able to love everyone and all species on Earth… This is the real message of love.” Thich Nhat Han
I also like the idea of using excerpts from the book “I Like You” (I know, I’m a copycat!)
