teaching

A Quote by Saint Polycarp on god, spirit, teaching, purity, wisdom, experience, justice, restraint, greed, and genuiness

Beware of greed and remain pure and just.  Restrain yourself from every vice.  He who cannot restrain himself, how will he be able to teach others restraint?

Saint Polycarp

A Quote by Saint Ignatios of Antioch on god, christanity, teaching, actions, living, virtues, goodness, spirituality, and knowledge

We recognize a tree by its fruit, and we ought to be able to recognize a Christian by his action.  The fruit of faith should be evident in our lives, for being a Christian is more than making sound professions of faith.  It should reveal itself in practical and visible ways.  Indeed it is better to keep quiet about our beliefs, and live them out, than to talk eloquently about what we believe, but fail to live by it.

A Quote by Howard Ikemoto on creativity, teaching, and children

When my daughter was about seven years old, she asked me one day what I did at work. I told her I worked at the college – that my job was to teach people how to draw. She stared back at me, incredulous, and said, “You mean they forget?”

A Quote by Osho on medtiation, teaching, ecstasy, stillness, and presence

The teaching of the buddhas is: Find time and a place to remain unoccupied. That’s what meditation is all about. Find at least one hour every day to sit silently doing nothing, utterly unoccupied, just watching whatsoever passes by inside. In the beginning you will be very sad, looking at things inside you; you will feel only darkness and nothing else, and ugly things and all kinds of black holes appearing. You will feel agony, no ecstasy at all. But if you persist, persevere, the day comes when all these agonies disappear, and behind the agonies is the ecstasy.

A Quote by Meredith Young-Sowers on spirituality, compassion, kindness, teaching, advice, and help

If people need to grow at their own rates, then you might ask, "In what way is it your opportunity to help others grow spiritually?" And I can offer two answers: first, it is appropriate to share your views when someone asks, and second, allow that you may know more of the situation, have greater insight into both the nature of the problem and the solution, than you might share with that person. A true spiritual teacher knows more than he or she necessarily verbalizes, using temperance and love to be guided to say what is appropraite without showing off his or her knowledge or saying what would not arise from the greatest care, kindness, and compassion.

A Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh on buddha, love, teaching, movement, glance, thought, word, day, and always

The Buddha's teachings on love are clear. It is possible to live twenty-four hours a day in a state of love. Every movement, every glance, every thought, and every word can be infused with love.
