The logical Buddha, whom is only a man paved by experience has inspired me. "Fantasy Buddha", a fine line in which subconsciously I stayed on a safe side and excluded many good things in the process. That was ignorance on my part that I will no longer let inhibit myself to grow when logic entails. This video teaches something I can relate with, excellent post.

If one would still be more interested in debating whether Buddha was God or not, how would one do what one is here to do ? I think he did a great job while making so much effort to help bring understanding. Lets focus on who we are now, and what can we be.

Well in the Baha'i teachings Buddha is considered a manifestation... one of them so I would recommend reading some Baha'i material if you are interested on that perspective.
