1

Forget the Past


“The past is already gone, the future is not yet here. There's only one moment for you to live, and that is the present moment”

2

Its Okay to Start Small


“A jug fills drop by drop. Every artist was once an amateur.” We all start small, do not despise small beginnings.

If you’re consistent, and if you’re patient, you will succeed! No one succeeds over night; success belongs to those who are willing to start small and patiently work until their jug is filled.



3

Thoughts Become Things


“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him. The mind is everything. What you think you become.”

4

Forgive


“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.”

5

It’s Your Actions That Count


“However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?”

6

Seek to Understand


“In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.”

When you feel anger rising, let it cease. Listen to others, understand their perspective, and you will have more peace. Be more concerned with being happy, than being right.

7

Conquer Yourself


“It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.”

8

Live in Peace


“Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.”

9

Be Thankful


“Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.”

10

Be True to What You Know


“The only real failure in life is not to be true to the best one knows.”

11

Travel Well


“It is better to travel well than to arrive.”

12

Do Not Believe In Anything


“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.

Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.”

13

Purpose in Life


“Your purpose in life is to find your purpose and give your whole heart and soul to it”

14

Good Morning


“Every morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.”

15

Shine


“Meditate. Live purely. Be quiet. Do your work with mastery. Like the moon, come out from behind the clouds! Shine”

16

Go All The Way


“There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.”

17

Imagine


“What you think, you become. What you feel, you attract. What you imagine, you create.”

18

Health


“To keep the body in good health is a duty... otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.”

19

Time


“The trouble is, you think you have time.”

20

Good Heart


“Set your heart on doing good. Do it over and over again, and you will be filled with joy. A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.”

21

Walk Alone


“If you find no one to support you on the spiritual path, walk alone. There is no companionship with the immature.”

22

Negative Thoughts


“Be vigilant; guard your mind against negative thoughts.”

23

Happiness


“Happiness does not depend on what you have or who you are, it solely relies on what you think.”

24

Embrace Nothing


“Embrace nothing: Only live your life as it is, Not bound to anything.”
