Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.Buddha
We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.Buddha
A Father’s Guide to Wisdom
There are as many truths as there are people in this world. Yet the collective aim to develop a globally understood reality remains a foundational process that brings growth to the individual soul.
Every morning I awaken to prayer. To be grateful, starts the day off right. That higher being that underlies our life-force granted us another day to get things right, create bridges where there were once divides, and offer gifts of love and peace where there was once hatred and war.
To be grateful sets the tone, where love and kindness can shed light even upon the darkest elements of the night. Notice how the Buddha speaks to these light giving forces. The sun warms us during the day. It warms the earth, touching upon even the darkest elements present. The moon, that beautifully transcendent sphere that follows us in reflection to the sun, also sheds its light upon us to offer weary travelers life-giving light in the darkest night moments. How far are we from universally given truths? If the light dissipates, will it not affect all sentient beings of our planet in the same way?
We chose what we allow to enter the temple of our mind. It is up to us to be vigilant gatekeepers at its entrance, for our thoughts and dreams shape the outcome of our life. Allow pureness and decency in, and you will see joy as a presence of the shadow that never left from your inner light.
Namaste. May prayers and blessings find you along your journey to believe, achieve, and advance confidently in the direction of your dreams.
