Wisdom Grown On The Tree Of Life

AquariusAquarius

‘The cause of all pain and suffering of our world is ignorance.’ The Buddha

‘One candle can light thousands of others without its own life getting shorter because of it. Happiness and light never decrease through sharing, they increase.’ The Buddha

To paraphrase the wisdom God and the Angels gave to our world through the Buddha legend: ‘Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it somewhere. Even if it is spoken and rumoured by many or you have found it written in the religious books of your world or you received it from your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. When you find, after careful observation and analysis, that something agrees with your reasoning and is conducive to your good and the benefit of all, accept it and conduct your life by it. In this way alone can it become your spiritual property that no-one will ever be able to take away from you.’

‘Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant with the weak and wrong. You can be sure that in one of your lifetimes you have been all of these.’ The Buddha

‘Words have the power to destroy and heal. Those that are true and kind can change our world.’ The Buddha

‘Kindness in words creates confidence, in thinking profoundness and in giving love.’ Lao-tzu

‘Conquering the desires of your lower earthly self is better than winning a thousand battles. The victory shall truly be yours and will never be taken from you by Angels or demons, Heaven or Hell.’ The Buddha ‘And in my view, that’s the only battle truly worth winning.’ Aquarius

‘You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire Universe, deserve your love, compassion and affection.’ The Buddha

‘No one saves us but we ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves have to walk the path.’ Gautama Buddha ‘Sayings Of Buddha’

‘Go and work out your own salvation, with diligence.’ According to the legend, the Buddha’s last words on his deathbed.

To paraphrase the Dalai Lama: ‘Once people adopt a religion, they should practice it sincerely. Truly believing in God, Buddha, Allah or Shiva should inspire one to be an honest human being. Some people claim to have faith in their religion but act counter to its ethical injunctions. They pray for the success of their dishonest and corrupt actions, asking God or Buddha to help them to hide their wrongdoings. There is no point in such people describing themselves as religious. Today the world faces a crisis that is brought about by the lack of respect for spiritual principles and ethical values. Such virtues cannot be forced on individuals or society as a whole by legislation or by science and fear cannot inspire good and right conduct. People need to be convinced of the worth of their ethical principles, so they can conduct their lives by them.’

‘The best and most beautiful things in our world can neither be seen nor touched. They have to be felt with our heart.’ Helen Keller

‘It is during our darkest moments that we need to focus on remembering that there is a light at the end of every tunnel.’ Aristotle Onassis

‘Believe you can and you are halfway there.’ Theodore Roosevelt

‘We are what we think. All that we are was created by our own thoughts. With their help all of us together have made our world the way it is at present. When we think, speak and act with a pure mind, in due course nothing but more of the same can return to us. This empowers us to bring about happiness and contentment that follows us like a shadow that no-one will ever take from us.’ Dalai Lama edited by Aquarius

‘Oh Great White Spirit, Father/Mother of all life and the Angels around your throne, please help me to never forget that there is nothing that can happen to me today or ever that I, hand in hand with You, cannot conquer and overcome.’ Aquarius

To paraphrase a quote from the Paramahansa Yogananda: ‘When you are living and loving God’s way, you recognise in every human being the face of the Great Father/Mother of all life, and their only born Son/Daughter, the Universal Christ. The realisation that the light of their love is in everything enters you into a magical living relationship that unites you with the trees, the sky, the stars, people and all other living creatures. Feeling your oneness with them that is the code of Divine love.’

‘To paraphrase the 14th Dalai Lama: ‘I cannot pull anyone from the hell they created for themselves, in this lifetime and previous ones. Nobody can carry you to Nirvana than you yourself. Everything depends on your own efforts. You cannot rely on anyone, no guru in the outside world. The wise one and living God within, that’s the only truly reliable and trustworthy guru who will never lead you astray and tell you an untruth.’
