joy the world contains
is through wishing happiness for others.
All the misery the world contains
has come through wanting pleasure for oneself.
(8.129 - Shantideva - Bodhicharyavatara)

(Above excerpt from philosophy of the Brook by Dr Prem Chopra. Fits in with most religions / philosophies).
Why Am I here?
Where am I going?
The Wisdom of the Ages, says
You are part of the One Existence which men call God. You are divine in your origin and divine in your innermost nature. Your body is mortal; your spirit; which is your true Self, is immortal; your soul, which is the self which thinks and feels and regards itself as 'I', may win it's immortality it it becomes the servant of spirit, and not otherwise.
You are here in order to discover what you really are, and to bring into activity all the powers that lie sleeping within you. Since you are, in you true nature, a part of the divine life, you have within yourself all the attributes of divinity: infinite love, infinite wisdom, infinite power. Humanity is still very young, and most of us have hardly begun the immense task of Self-discovery. But we are here to do this very thing, and we have all the time we need to do it.
You are going in the direction you have chosen, either drifting through life, at the mercy of events and of your own passing whims and moods, or taking adult responsibility for the whole of yourself, your character, your actions and your future. The full stature of manhood is the perfect expression of divinity in a human personality. You are choosing, at every moment, either to waste your opportunities and deny your true Self, or to accept your destiny and move consciously towards the goal of Self-realization.
(Above excerpt from Theosophical Society)
"Whether one believes in a religion or not, and whether one believes in rebirth or not, there isn't anyone who doesn't appreciate kindness and compassion." His Holiness The XIV Dalai Lama
"Lord Buddha is saying that you only have to know what you are, how you exist; that's all. You don't have to do anything. Just understand your mind: how it works; how attachment and desire arise; how ignorance arises; where emotions come from. It is sufficient to know the nature of all that; just that gives so much happiness and peace." - Lama Thubten Yeshe
The Three Basic Laws Of The Point Of Life Foundation.
1. Love The Creator with all your being and nurture every living life form. Protect your mother earth as to would protect your mother who gave you birth.
2. Work for truth..... beyond perceptions, peace of mind..... beyond the ego, serenity of living.... beyond the personality and wisdom.... beyond the intellect. Help others find the awareness to know their true self.
3. Enjoy each precious second no matter your circumstances at any point in time. Human spirit is cultivated by the source of all
creation/evolving and only fosters Love and Joy.......Why Modify The Creators Divine Plan With False Doctrines?
People are often
illogical, and self-centered;
forgive them anyway.
If you are kind,
People may accuse you of selfish,
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful,
you will win some false friends
and some true enemies; Succeed anyway.
If you are honest
people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years
someone could destroy overnight;
If you find serenity
there may be jealousy;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do
people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
Give the world the
best you have,
and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the
it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway
Selfish craving leads to dissatifaction and suffering
Solution - antidote - realizing true nature -
Train and Tame Mind
Healthy conscious eating, regular exercise
Go with the Flow
Problems, stress -
Career & Success
Be open minded - beginner's mind
Don't belief anything just because somebody says so. Experiment for yourself. Test it out with your own mind & heart. Become an inner scientist. Be a student not a follower.
Be aware of your criticisms, fears, doubts etc. these highlight how your own mind works -
Let breath, sound, silence, space, realisation of inner being, soul, be your anchor to the present moment. Notice when you are not present. Catch yourself thinking.
Listen to your heart - your in-tuition, small still voice inside.
Tips & Truths
The most important person is
the one you are with in the present moment
Life is about relationships,
weaving a tapestry of fruitful experiences,
living to our full potential
Humans are capable of rational thought - thinking rationaly is taking a wider perspective, possibly the perspective of others and aligning with Universal Nature of Life
Success is an attitude - attracting what you need
Be a Master not a victim of your ego, thoughts, emotions, desires,
the negative ego is constantly craving,
grasping, separating, impressing, tempting, defending
The spiritual self is constantly - balanced, in harmony, peaceful, accepting, non judgemental
Ask and you shall receive
Sow and you shall reap
Does God exist? We are proof of it
The fragrance of God is us - we are the evidence that God exists
The fact that we have energy to do what we choose is a testament to Gods grace and Divine Presence
I see the Manifest part of God / Goodness / Life like water - laying down for our use - like water. Likewise Earth- spreading everywhere - indescriminately - and so on with Air & Fire - without these elements we could not exist on this planet!
What are we without the environment?
How can one describe oneself without the environment?
Creation is through God, God giving of himself -to experience reunion with himself
God is laying him/her self down, as the ground - a tool for our use - to do as we choose
And look what we have done?
The only constant is change!
One characteristic of God/ Life is the process of change
God is said to be the process of change, the observer and the changed.
Mindfulness is the attention and familiarisation with change, in the present moment
God/ Reality / Goodness / Suchness / Isness is the true nature of life / existence
God is ultimately beyond labels, concepts, logic, description.
The unseen, is elusive, unimaginable, unfathomable, beyond concept - and thus has those characteristics
Enlightenment - is shining the light of awareness, wisdom, acceptance, de-tachment - to see things clearly as they are with no fear or desire, accepting them - it can be see as a process / journey (right brain) or as a goal / destination (left brain logic)
However it is both and neither - it
is beyond words, or concepts -
but at the same time it is real and available in any moment.
Godrealisation is a state of bliss-truth-consciousness - where everything is One, Non-dual, United, Integrated, Harmonious, Peaceful, balanced, stillness in movement, organised chaos - where paradoxes unite
In fact the split between God and us is an illusion - a concept of the fearful, negative ego
GOD speaks to us through the 'still small, voice'
God speaks through symbols, meaningful coincidences.
Be great by serving many
We should n't think of ourselves as beings holding light, rather light holding beings
Good & Bad:
Insight of suchness, Tathatagata
Life is like this now -
See it as it is,
with no fear, no desire, no selfish craving,
This too shall soon pass,
No-thing is permanent,
Insight of Impermanence
No act is insignificant - like ripples on a pond,
our actions spread
'How you sow, shall you reap'
Enjoy every experience!
See the good / Divine / Buddha nature / Goddess in all
Be the eye of the cyclone,
Centered, at peace - the deep calm,
Like a moonlit lake - reflecting, not showing depth
Everybody admires, respects, and reveres a calm, serene person.
Be Awake! Live fully present,
conscious moment to moment,
not clinging to anything,
taking responsibility for actions, and help others
in reverance, gratitude, devotion, service to God / Self / Others / Life
Choose to be 'Aware of the Oneness and 'Interconnections of life'
Be innocent but wise
Be Enchanted, Fascinated
Be thankful, honest and patient!
Be your True Self
Know your True Self
Take no-thing to excess.
To thyself be True.
BE YOURSELF - but first you need to KNOW YOUR SELF,
TO KNOW THE TRUTH - drop the fiction, illusions, masks, false beliefs, ignorance, greed, fear, hatred that belong to the false self.
Start by turning inward - ask yourself -
When decision making, ask self:
Set a goal & direction
