Quote 55: Anxieties

“Casting all your anxiety upon him, because he careth for you” (I Peter, 5: 7).
Anxieties set many crimes and never build anything useful on Earth. Invariably, the rash man counts all odds against himself.

Opposing the anguished concerns, speak the lessons of patience of nature, in all sectors of the human journey.
If man were born to be anxious, it would mean that he came into the world, not in the category of a worker in a sanctifying task, but in desperation without remission.

If the creature reflected more sensibly he would recognize the content of service that the moments of each day can offer him and would know with great value to watch over his own patrimony.

Undoubtedly, landscapes will change incessantly, compelling us to face unpleasant surprises, arising from our inadequate attitude, joy or pain, but it represents the imposition of the law, our obligation to continue daily towards the good.

Anxiety will try to violate generous hearts, because the earthly roads unfold many obscure angles and problems of difficult solution, however, let’s not forget Pedro’s recipe.
Cast the restlessness on your hopes in Our Heavenly Father, because the Divine Love reflects on the well-being of all of us.

It is only right to desire the victory of light, to seek peace with perseverance, to discipline oneself in union with the higher planes, to insist on attuning to the higher spheres. Do not forget, however, that anxiety always precedes the action of falling. Emmanuel

Quote 54: Self-Knowledge

If you want to find yourself, get out of yourself.
How could achieve self-knowledge on climate of selfishness?
How to know who you are, not knowing how you react before others?
How can anyone deliver the time-consuming insights, if not far, there is hunger and pain, tear and suffering?
The Lord said, “Let shine your light …”.
He himself the light of the world, did not remain in the heavenly bliss of the blessed.
_ “I have come that you may have life, and life in abundance.”
If you wish to know yourself, do not close your eyes to the world, locking you in your
emotions.
In work action, which means help everyone, you will see, how you really are.

Quote 53: Peace, Love and Tolerance for the World

At each terrorist act what may happen, we should not permit, even being difficult, that the hate come into our heart.

Because the terrorists want to disunite, they want to destroy the noblest sense of tolerance that we have within us.
We all reap what we sow. All our actions generate a reaction. This is a universal law. It is the mathematics of God, Allah. One day they will also repent of their acts.


There will be a day when evil will be banished from the planet earth.
Even for those who believe in reincarnation laws, it is difficult to accept this.

But we have confidence in the future. Even an evil do not last forever.

That the governor of planet Earth, Jesus, bless you with peace, tolerance and love. Thank you so much

Muslim.” -prophet Muhammad [pbuh]

Quote 51: Wisdom

I decided that it was not wisdom that enabled poets to write their poetry, but a kind of instinct or inspiration, such as you find in seers and prophets who deliver all their sublime messages without knowing in the least what they mean.
xxxxxxxx
True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us.
xxxxxxxx
Our prayers should be for blessings in general, for God knows best what is good for us. Socrates

Quote 50: Win Friends

“I tell you, use worldly wealth to gain friends for yourselves.” Jesus (Luke, 16:9)

If the individual could succeed in discovering through human experience the profound past, he, would more rapidly, reach the conclusion that all the opportunities that complement him in knowledge and health, come from Divine Kindness and, that most of the material resources that are at his disposition and desires proceed from injustice.

It is not up to us to particularize, but rather to deduce that the concepts of human rights originated from the divine influence because, as far as we are concerned, we are compelled to recognize our slow individual evolution from fierce selfishness toward a universal love, from the iniquity toward true justice.

It will be enough to recall in th is sense that almost all the Countries arose, centuries ago, through cruel conquests. With exception, men have been squandering servants th at at the moment of adjustment did not appear to be worthy of the benefits received.

It is for this reason that Jesus left us the parable of the unfaithful servant, inviting us into a sincere fraternity in order that through it we could find the path of rehabilitation.

The Master encouraged us to gain friends, that is, to expand our circle of friends through which we can feel more intensive protection in a spirit of cooperation and through intervening values.

If our spiritual past is somber and painful, let us try to simplify it, by acquiring true dedications that will assist us through the harsh climb of redemption. If we do not, today, have a determined bond with the wealth of injustice, we had it yesterday, and it becomes indispensable that we take advantage of time for our own individual readjustment before the Divine Justice. Emmanuel

Quote 49: Forgive always

  • Forgive the transgressor; life will take care of him.
  • Pardon the deserter; he is weak and will return to the lesson later on.
  • Help those who make mistakes; your feet walk on the same ground, and even if you possess the possibility to correct them, you have no right to censure them.
  • Aid the sick; thank the Divine Power for the state of equilibrium you are able to conserve.
  • Help the companion who is insecure; perhaps they do not have
    enough to supply their needs, while you retain an excess.
  • Do not be perturbed with by an ill-bred person; in most cases the one who is unsociable has a liver complaint and bad nerves.
  • Do not fret over the ignorant person; surely they have not had the opportunities which illuminated your path.
  • Avoid trouble with those who are fanatics; they remain imprisoned in exclusivism and deserve compassion just as any other prisoner.
  • Help the envious in a fraternal manner; spite is an undisguised homage to merit, and in paying this tribute, the common man torments himself and suffers.
  • If treachery crosses your path, deny it the honour of indignation; examine it with a silent smile, study the process calmly and shortly afterwards, transform it into material worthy of life.
  • When faced with error, correct it first in yourself, and then in others, without violence and without hate.
  • Be useful everywhere, but do not attempt to please everyone; do not undertake that which even Christ has still not attained.
  • If you pay too much attention to the criticism of the one who is inferior, then you must endure the constraints of the plane to which you have descended without feeling hurt.
  • Think of your adversary as a bearer of equilibrium; if we have need of friends to stimulate us, we equally need someone to show us our errors.
  • Do not imprison those about you to your way of thinking; give your companion the opportunity to interpret life as freely as you do.
  • If I would expect better spiritual conditions to serve, I would not have started until the present moment.
  • When each one of us become an active and living book of lessons for those who see our examples, the boundaries of religious interpretation will give way to the new era of brotherhood and peace we’re waiting for.
  • I’m not irreplaceable… I’m nothing but grass growing on the ground; when the grass dies, another one replaces it…   Francisco Candido Xavier

Quote 48: Peace and Love for the World

 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.  If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.  If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.  Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.  And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.

But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13

More Love. Less hate

Salt, when dissolved in water, may disappear, but it does not cease to exist. We can be sure of its presence by tasting the water. Likewise, the indwelling Christ, though unseen, will be made evident to others from the love which he imparts to us.

During an earthquake it sometimes happens that fresh springs break out in dry places which water and quicken the land so that plants can grow. In the same way the shattering experiences of suffering can cause the living water to well up in a human heart.

Quote 46: Unconditional Love

“In a Tibetan village I noticed a crowd of people standing under a burning tree and looking up into the branches. I came near and discovered in the branches a bird which was anxiously flying round a nest full of young ones. The mother bird wanted to save her little ones, but she could not. When the fire reached the nest the people waited breathlessly to see what she would do. No one could climb the tree, no one could help her. Now she could easily have saved her own life by flight, but instead of fleeing she sat down on the nest, covering the little ones carefully with her wings. The fire seized her and burnt her to ashes. She showed her love to her little ones by giving her life for them. If then, this little insignificant creature had such love, how much more must our Heavenly Father love His children, the Creator love His creatures!”

Sadhu Sundar Singh
