wisdom

A Quote by Marianne on courage, chang, love, comittment, compaswion, and wisdom

Let my life be an example In my Successes and my Failures. Within me is the light of God, the wisdom of the ages if I can just have the courage to trust and believe.
To look for that same God light in everyone I meet.
Within me is the teachings of Buddha, Jesus, Gandhi, Mother Theresa and of all those who went before me;
speaking of Love, Peace and Compassion.

It isn't the easy thing that is the right thing...
It is not in my silent acceptance of what I know
my heart that is wrong that will make a difference.
It is by having the Courage;
to look into the mirror of my life,
and hold my life up as a mirror to others;.
It is by my Word, Deed and Example
that I will change the world.

A Quote by unknown on compassion, doubt, fear, hidden gifts, and wisdom

Make me strong in spirit,
Courageous in action,
Gentle of heart,

Let me act in wisdom,
Conquer my fear and doubt,
Discover my own hidden gifts,

Meet others with compassion,
Be a source of healing energies,
And face each day with hope and joy.

“Through indiscriminate suffering men know fear, and fear is the most divine emotion. It is the stones for altars and the beginning of wisdom.”

wholly to be a fool
while Spring is in the world

my blood approves,
and kisses are a better fate
than wisdom

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on meditation, wisdom, nirvana, and enlightenment

There is no meditation without wisdom, and there is no wisdom without meditation. When a man has both meditation and wisdom, he is indeed close to nirvana.

A Quote by Lin Chi on buddhahood, fool, laugh, wisdom, and ordinariness

When it's time to get dressed, put on your clothes.
When you must walk, then walk.
When you must sit, then sit.
Just be your ordinary self in ordinary life,
unconcerned in seeking for Buddhahood.
When you're tired, lie down.
The fool will laugh at you
but the wise man will understand.
