My Musings

  • Ego throws man in an all out war with God.  Guess who loses.

  • Only if people knew how sweet the joy of God is, they would not trade it for anything in the world.

  • Religion is not what people think it is.  True religion is the realization that everything in this world, animate or inanimate, is a part of one Mighty Whole and we are interconnected in subtle ways.  

  • We can find out quickly how fortunate we are if we compare our bad times with worse times of others.

  • We like to value our own things more than those of others.  A man was cleaning his shoes with a silk towel.  When asked why he was using silk to clean his shoes, he replied, "The shoes are mine and the towel belongs to my father."

  • Wisdom does not come from talking, it comes from thinking, and thinking comes from calmness. Wisdom also comes from experience. We learn fast by our own mistakes.

  • Those who use the pronouns I, me, and mine more than we, us, and ours generally get sick more often than others.

  • Selfishness leads to illness.  Medical research shows "the more self-centered people are much more likely to die of heart attack than the less self-centered."

  • Do not be so sure of what you see.  The sky appears blue, but when you go up there the sky neither exists nor is it blue.

  • Courage is not the absence of fear.  Courage is the willingness to set aside greed, anger, and hatred and make room for love, kindness, and compassion.  

  • Satisfaction in life is not accidental, it depends upon what you do, when you do, and how you do it.

  • See others as they are, not as you think they are.

  • Remember your best is always better than someone else's best.

  • Study, think, and act for success; any deviation will result in failure.

  • Emotion and anger are enemies of understanding.

  • If you lose your sleep for any reason, you could lose yourself for the same reason.
