1. A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because her trust is not on the branch but on it’s own wings. Always believe in yourSelf…

 

2. The essence of Buddhism lies in developing oneself through one’s own determination and tenacious effort—not by depending on anyone or anything else. At the same time, neither is it to be confused with the arrogance to suppose, “I alone am correct and respect worthy.” To believe in the immense potential within oneself is at once to believe in the immense potential existing within all people. Buddhism teaches that we should treasure the lives of others just as highly as we treasure our own.

 

3.  The quality of our lives ultimately depends upon our state of mind. As Milton famously wrote, “The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven.”

 

4. “You can’t undo the ego. You you you think you are is the ego. The best that you can do is allow yourself to be undone – lose. How to lose? Don’t defend yourself. Turn the other cheek. Love your enemies. Don’t make any plans against future uncertainties. Be not restless. Don’t think that you know what you are, or what anything is for. Don’t give meaning to anything that you see. Nothing that you think means anything. Don’t decide. Don’t compare. Don’t compete. Don’t make any demands. Don’t adjust. Be neither careful nor careless. Accept the idea that your body is insignificant (just one of the things of this earth that will soon be dust). Step back and turn your will and your life over to God. Trust and listen. Let yourself be guided. Let yourself be undone very gently.” Thanks Benny

 

5. When we step outside our comfort zone for our Higher Purpose, the Universe supports US in every way…
