By virtue of being born, you opted-in to the following terms and conditions.
“Waking up this morning, I smile. Twenty-four brand new hours are before me. I vow to live fully in each moment and to look at all beings with eyes of compassion.”
"Always pass on what you have learned."
“My actions are my only true belongings.”
"Drop by drop is the water pot filled."
“To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.”
"Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose."
"Those who cling to perceptions and views wander the world offending people."
"Do. Or do not. There is no try."
"Suppose that a man is facing a great river and if he has to cross to the other shore, but there is no boat to do so, what will he do? He would cut some trees, tie them together and build a raft. So he would sit on the raft and using his hands or a stick, he would move to cross the river. Once he reached the other bank, what would he do? He would drop the raft because he no longer needs it. What he would not do, thinking about how useful it had been, is to load it on his shoulders and continue the journey with the raft on his back."
"Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering."
"People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child—our own two eyes. All is a miracle."
“When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you don't blame the lettuce. You look for reasons it is not doing well. It may need fertilizer, or more water, or less sun. You never blame the lettuce. Yet if we have problems with our friends or family, we blame the other person. But if we know how to take care of them, they will grow well, like the lettuce. Blaming has no positive effect at all, nor does trying to persuade using reason and argument. That is my experience. No blame, no reasoning, no argument, just understanding. If you understand, and you show that you understand, you can love, and the situation will change.”
“Our own life has to be our message.”
