Sometimes I think things are summed up best by saying we are eternal consciousness having an experience in a physical body. What you really are never dies.
Long ago we decided to experience having experiences in a dimension we call reality.
We spent so much time here that we forgot how to just leave. And due to the laws of this three dimensional plane we have to learn to exist in a body in a certain manner. The manner of being has everything to do with how we think and therefore what we do. Until we do learn, we continue to be reborn, die, be reborn, die.
Experiencing life in a material form is part of the process of the growth and evolution of the Soul.
In order to leave and not need to return we have to learn to love and forgive, forgive ourselves and all others and know the universe does not judge us. We also can advance rapidly when we realize we are one with everything and everyone.
We have a consciousness with the power to make choices. That is why we are here. We chose to become emeshed in the earth. We chose to be born to our parents.
Let's explore choice. Would you be a sentient being; that is, aware of yourself without choice? To me beings with self-awareness and choice will someday become reunited with the oneness of life.
Let's begin with Buddha
We are shaped by our thoughts we become what we think.
Every morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.
There is no path to happiness. Happiness is the path.
Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.
If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
If anything is worth doing, do it with all your heart.
I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures.
Treat those who are good with goodness, and also treat those who are not good with goodness. Thus goodness is attained. Be honest to those who are honest, and be also honest to those who are not honest. Thus honesty is attained.
Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is Enlightenment.
Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.
The key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness.
If you realize that all things change, there is nothing you will try to hold on to. If you are not afraid of dying, there is nothing you cannot achieve.
If you would take, you must first give, this is the beginning of intelligence.
So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other.
If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you.
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Soul development should take precedence over all things.
For, thoughts are things.
For as we forgive, we are forgiven.
Individuals do not meet by chance. They are necessary for the experiences of others, though they may not always use their opportunities in a spiritual way or manner.
If you learn music you’ll learn most all there is to know.
You get to heaven on the arms of people you have helped. Birth in the physical is death in the spiritual.
Death in the physical is birth in the spiritual.
Oneness of God, oneness of man’s relation, oneness of force, oneness of time, oneness of purpose. Oneness in every effort- Oneness- Oneness!
After a lifetime of seeking the answers to the cosmic questions I have come to view the human situation very simply.
To evolve we need to forgive ourselves and all others. We must understand the universe is not judging us. There is no heaven and no hell other than that which we create. Treat others as we wish to be treated.
The methods that help us evolve are establishing ideals and living them, meditation, and prayer. (Thoughts are things)
