You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.
More quotes by Buddha
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
As a bee gathering nectar does not harm or disturb the color & fragrance of the flower; so do the wise move through the world.
In the end, only three things matter: How much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.
More quotes about Faith
I lost my faith in God when I lost my daughter to Cancer, the beast. I begged, I cried, I offered my life for hers, and day by day, I watched that beautiful little Angel slip off. So, excuse me for not taking my seat next to you on Sunday in Church, I feel too cheated to worship.
One who conquers himself is greater than another who conquers a thousand times a thousand on the battlefield.
When you hear that all beings are Buddha, don’t fall into the error of thinking there’s more than one Buddha.
I adopted the theory of reincarnation when I was 26. I got the idea from a book by Orlando Smith. Until I discovered this theory I was unsettled and dissatisfied-without a compass, so to speak. When I discovered reincarnation it was as if I had found a universal plan. I realized that there was a chance to work out my ideas. Time was no longer limited. I was no longer a slave to the hands of the clock. There was time enough to plan and to create. I wouldn’t give five cents for seeing all the world, because I feel there is nothing in the five continents and on the five seas that I have not somehow seen. Somewhere is a master mind sending brain wave messages to us. There is a Great Spirit. I never did anything by my own volition. I was pushed by invisible forces within and without me. We inherit a native knowledge from a previous existence. Gospel of reincarnation is essence of all knowledge. I do not know where we come from or go to but we accumulate experience. Someday it will be possible to measure the soul. We all retain memories of past lives.
We’ve had the goddam Ages of Faith, we’ve had the goddam Age of Reason. This is the Age of Publicity.
When an ordinary man attains knowledge, he is a sage; when a sage attains understanding, he is an ordinary man.
I dressed the part and slipped into my Sunday best. I peeled open the heavy doors to every church I could find.
