Luminita Saviuc – 25 Life Changing Lessons to Learn from Buddha – 7-4-14

 

By Luminita Saviuc

“If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.” ~ Buddha

There are so many beautiful, powerful and life changing lessons I have learned from studying Buddhism and from reading many of Buddha’s quotes. And today I want to share 25 of these beautiful lessons with you.

Here are 25 Life Changing Lessons from Buddha:

1. Love heals all things.

“Hatred does not cease by hatred, but only by love; this is the eternal rule.” 

2. It’s not what you say but what you do that defines you.

“A man is not called wise because he talks and talks again; but if he is peaceful, loving and fearless then he is in truth called wise.”

“A dog is not considered a good dog because he is a good barker. A man is not considered a good man because he is a good talker.”

3. The secret of good health is to live fully in the NOW.

“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.”

“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.”

4. Who looks inside awakens.

“The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart.”

5. Words have the power to both hurt and heal.

“Words have the power to both destroy and heal. When words are both true and kind, they can change our world.” ~ Buddha

6. Let it go and it will be yours forever.

“You only lose what you cling to.”

7. No one can walk your path for you.

“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.”

8. Happiness never decreases by being shared.

“Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”

9. Be kind to all.

“Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant with the weak and wrong. Sometime in your life, you will have been all of these.”

“Have compassion for all beings, rich and poor alike; each has their suffering. Some suffer too much, others too little.”

“Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.”

10. Don’t believe everything you are told to believe.

“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.”

11. As you THINK so shall you be

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought: it is founded on our thoughts and made up of our thoughts. If a man speak or act with an evil thought, suffering follows him as the wheel follows the hoof of the beast that draws the wagon…. If a man speak or act with a good thought, happiness follows him like a shadow that never leaves him.”

12. Let go of fear.

“The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed.”

13. The truth has a way of always leaking out.

“Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.”

14. Control your mind or it will control you.

“To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.”

“It is a man’s own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.”

15. Doubt separates. Trust unites.

“There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills.”

16. Nobody is more deserving of your love than you yourself are.

“You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”

17. Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is enlightenment.

“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.”

18. Spirituality isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity.

“Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.”

19. Replace jealousy with admiration.

“Do not be jealous of others’ good qualities, but out of admiration adopt them yourself.”

20. Look for peace within yourself.

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

21. Let go of attachment.

“To live a pure unselfish life, one must count nothing as one’s own in the midst of abundance.”

22. Choose your friends wisely.

“An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.”

23. There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way.

“There is no path to happiness: happiness is the path.”

24. Give up labels.

“In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true.”

25. Love. Live. Let go.

“In the end these things matter most: How well did you love? How fully did you live? How deeply did you let go?”

About the Author:

When nobody’s watching, I pretend I’m a moon sprite; transcendent, effervescent, ever curious. Yet my birth certificate says I’m a human born in Romania. Oh well.

I’m an enthusiastic student of the arts, economics, psychology and spirituality – and I take great pleasure in shining light on life’s hidden truths, the paradoxes that both stare us in the face and hide from us in unison, as they silently shape our every waking moment.

Teal Scott – Why Are Spiritual Teachers So Contradictory?

TheSpiritualCatalyst·127 videos

Ask Teal Website – http://www.askteal.com

If you have spent any time exploring the world of spirituality or self-help, you have most likely discovered that spiritual teachings and spiritual teachers themselves can be frustrating because they present such contradictory teachings.
Spiritual teachings are contradictory because spiritual teachings must take into account a multi dimensional universe. The rules change on each dimension. What is true for one dimension is not necessarily true for the next.
We need to let go of truth, because truth is subjective. We need to start caring more about how things feel to us personally. If we feel relief and follow our joy, we will find whatever spiritual teaching is right for the vibration that we are currently in. Listen to the spiritual teacher that makes you feel good. That is your internal guidance system telling you that the vibration they are offering you, is an improvement on your current vibration. In this episode, Teal explains in depth why spiritual teachings can be so contradictory and what to do about it.

The New Scriptures As Given By Jesus / Sananda, Chapter 22 – Transcribed by Kathryn E Mays

 
 
The New Scriptures As Given by Jesus/Sananda
Chapter 22
 
Transcribed by Kathryn E May, PsyD  / November 8 2013
I am Sananda, the one you knew as Jesus.
It is November 8, 2013.  I am speaking to you from the deck of the New Jerusalem, the mothership of the Galactic Federation of LIght.  It has been my home for some years now, since it was decided that we come to remain close to Earth, to oversee the Ascension process and to direct the gathering of the thousands of ships from the far reaches of the Milky Way Galaxy and even beyond.  I am here in the company of my beloved Brother Ashtar, whom you know as the Supreme Commander of the fleet.
      I can tell you it has been a pleasure to work together on this ambitious plan, which we all designed together.  Many times we have had meetings here with St. Germain, Mother and Father God, Archangel Michael and many others, in which we considered all the options, observed your progress on the ground, and planned new ways to help and encourage you.  We have each watched carefully as our beloved Twin Flames carry out their work there on the ground.  We admire their stamina and their ability to love unconditionally, in spite of the difficulties and stresses of life there in 3D, as we have called it, and we long for the time when we will reunite with them and with all of you.
      You see, even though there is no time for us in higher dimensions as it is experienced there on Earth, still we come to visit you, touch your faces, embrace you with unending love, and we feel the distance between us that the Veil creates.  You cannot see us even when we stand before you in Love.  You feel our presence; sometimes you call our name, and that is a glorious moment for us.  In our love, we long for your touch and your company just as you long for us and Home.  As the time for reunion draws closer, the sense of anticipation becomes ever more poignant.
      In spite of the difficult ending I experienced as Jesus, I greatly enjoyed the companions and friends during that life.  We were so close, our hearts so entwined, our love so strong that it brings tears to my eyes to remember the fond moments I experienced there.  Those who came for healing left a mark on me as well.  I looked into the eyes of one who was lame or sick and my heart forged a permanent connection which I remember always.  There were the joyful times of laughter and fun with my band of friends and my beloved Mary Magdalene, and the unforgettable moments when I looked into the eyes of my daughter, Sarah.  I am grateful for every moment I spent there.
      You are all now approaching the end of your lives on Planet Earth as you have known her for thousands of years.  Although you look forward eagerly to the Great Shift that will take you to new heights of experience, I assure you that you too will look back on these lifetimes on Mother Earth with nostalgia and affection.  Yes, it has been difficult, but the greatest triumphs and the closest friendships spring from the soil of conflict and turmoil.  You have all experienced difficulty and you have all experienced joy.  We have been comrades in the most exciting project imaginable.  There is nothing better than that.
      We have carried the project forward for these many eons, and it has brought us here, to this incredible moment in history.  We are about to see the public revelation of the Prosperity Program which will right the thousands of years of controlled suffering on the planet.  It will bring relief and a temporary state of exhilaration to those who no longer need to worry and struggle to provide for their loved ones.  The later phases will bring announcements of our presence high above you in the skies, our hearts filled with love and our intentions directed toward introducing new technologies, and new social organizations which will benefit all the people.
      The goal of all this activity has always been clear.  It is not just about improving the standard of living for everyone.  It is about improving your relationship with yourself and your God.  These are the elements you need to develop in order to raise your vibration sufficiently to ascend with your friends and family as you realize the goal of ascending directly to the 5th dimension, with your present body intact.  This time there will be no death for the ones who have made soul contracts to experience the Ascension.
      We know how hard it is for you to grasp the meaning of this transition.  It is difficult to imagine rising up to Heaven in your body, floating away to the ether to begin your new adventure in higher realms – you are so used to your heavy existence, planted firmly on the ground.  But you are indeed beginning to feel the lightness in your being, the sense of light-hearted Joy and Love which lifts you into a realm where there is no stress, no anger, no darkness, only Light.  This is your I AM Presence.  You feel it distinctly when you meditate, when you open your hearts to Love, and when you listen to the internet healing calls with Kathryn, myself, and many other Ascended Masters, which lift you into a new experience of yourself.*
      You can plan your Ascension, Dear Ones.  You can do so by practicing every day until you reach the state in which you are in perfect command of your thoughts, your feelings and your actions.  Do not stop at experiencing Unending Love a few times a day. Continue to concentrate on every breath, every thought and feeling, until you are able to align yourself perfectly with your Higher Self, which is God.  In that fully activated state you will find that the world is indeed a beautiful place.  The people around you, even those you thought you detested, offer the opportunity to exercise your Love muscles. You will find yourself chuckling every time you see a small child or a tail-wagging dog; your eyes will search out beauty in the least likely places.
      This is the magic of Attitude, Dear Ones.  An attitude of compassion and forgiveness makes the whole world look softer, brighter, and more welcoming.  An attitude of judgmental disapproval makes the whole world look dreary, flawed, ugly and dark.  You have learned that what you envision, you create.  But what you envision is determined by the attitude with which you face the world.  Face the world with an attitude of good-natured curiosity and generosity, and the world will welcome your company.  You will never feel alone or dejected, because you will see possibilities everywhere you turn.
      Leave all the stresses of competition behind you; strive only to improve your spiritual self.  There is no badge or award to be earned; there is only working toward your own higher levels of being, as you move closer to God.  The reward is happiness and inner peace.  Instead of working harder to prove how dedicated you can be to the job or the company that employs you, look around at the people who share your space, and do something to make their lives more enjoyable.
      Find small opportunities to be of service to others, and you will notice how easily and naturally you begin to fit into the world.  Yes, there is a place for you.  You have value, just because you are here.  Search deeply inside yourself to find the ancient truths, the wisdom you have garnered from many past lifetimes.  You will sense it, especially at times when you are attracted to a new endeavor, or when you find yourself accomplishing some skill with ease.  You not only are worthy, you are also more experienced and accomplished than you gave yourself credit for.
      You will soon find your lives turned upside down.  It is a time of enormous change. Nothing will remain as you knew it; all will be new, exciting and inspiring if you keep an open heart and approach it all with an attitude of joyful anticipation.  Each day will bring you closer to your final goal – the high vibration which will carry you through the portal to a new life, a new beginning.
      Join me, Beloved Ones, we will walk together toward the triumphant day of Ascension, and you will know peace, harmony and endless Love.
      I am your Sananda.

Jesus / Sananda – The New Scriptures – Chapter 21 – Transcribed by Kathryn E. May

Chapter 21

Transcribed by Kathryn E May, PsyD
October 22 2013

“When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for a people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them to another” – the spirit of those words rings in the consciousness of all the people on Planet Earth in this year 2013. Whether it echoes within the hearts of the American people whose Declaration of Independence inspired these eloquent words, or whether it rises in the inspiring calls to freedom across the Middle East, or it fuels the expressions of hope for insurgents in African nations where peace and dignity remain illusive, the spirit of freedom grows. It is the year of the New Beginning, Beloved Ones. It is the year which will be remembered as the beginning of new freedom, of throwing off the yoke of oppression, whether it be social, political, economic or psychological.
As the events unfold in the coming weeks, you will gain new appreciation for the connection between these seemingly separate areas of life. There are artificial divisions, for instance, between the fields of study in your schools, as if learning about social issues were somehow separate from politics, and as if economics were an esoteric field relevant only to college professors and the secretaries of the treasuries of world powers. Nothing could be further from Truth. All humankind will be astonished to discover how one’s family life and day to day well-being have been profoundly affected by the currency value of foreign countries, for instance. The details of international trade agreements may have been of no interest to you, but your work, your food and the state of your health are profoundly affected anyway.
The Veil of Forgetfulness is falling away. Many of you are already beginning to remember past lives, and are sensing the echoes of past relationships in your interactions with people in your current lives. It will be a revelation to you when you begin to learn, through your own awakening and through the coming contact with your Galactic friends, that your history is not at all what you have been taught. In spite of astonishing discoveries like the underwater pyramids of Atlantis, your scientists continue to ignore whatever revelations do not agree with the limited understandings they have clung to. It is an irony, is it not, that the Creator Race can be so conservative in thinking that you are reluctant to change your minds, even when the evidence is presented in clear photographs by perfectly reputable people. It can be difficult to leave your pet teachings behind.
One of the myths that remains present in the minds of humanity is the belief that anyone not of your planet and not of your exact species of humankind must by definition be strange, foreign and dangerous to you. “Alien” is a dirty word in your lexicon. Do you ever stop to think about what those beings in the ships which are so famously darting about in your skies think of when they observe you? Who has more reason to be afraid – you who have bombed each other for centuries and who have developed sophisticated weapons to wipe out anything that comes within range of your Star Wars technology, or the beings who have quietly observed from a distance in their stunningly advanced wonders of technological engineering?
Many of you reading this have suspected that any civilization which could travel thousands of light-years to arrive here may also be emotionally, socially, politically and spiritually more advanced than your own planet, although this obvious truth is hard for many to accept. You see advanced technology, and your first thoughts turn to war. You see, this is the residue of Reptilian ideology still active in your minds. It was the Reptilian leaders who oversaw the shooting down of the few uncloaked ships that came within range. They came to make contact and to peacefully offer their technologies for the Greater Good. What resulted was the massive cover-up of a multi-trillion dollar program in reverse engineering, which has been used to build more advanced weaponry than you can even imagine, and it has gone on now for more than 50 years.
If you had not been brainwashed to fear “aliens” through constant propaganda, it would have been perfectly obvious to every one of you that your space Brothers and Sisters were here out of concern for you and for the safety of the entire Universe. Fear has blinded you to the truth that nuclear testing created tremendous pain and destruction to Mother Earth and all her creatures. Had you not been trained to feel suspicion, mistrust and fear of your fellow humans, you would have all been crying and rioting in the streets at the first mushroom cloud to appear in your skies, rather than proudly applauding your government’s “superior” achievements. Similarly, if you had not been deliberately threatened with starvation, you never would have agreed to the unholy development and patenting of artificially created “Frankenfoods.”
Highly developed civilizations through out the Multiverse take it for granted that all sources of sustenance, all access to medical care, all education of the young, and all natural resources are to be shared, developed only for the Greater Good, and never hoarded or privately owned. But of course, this is an expression of the Unity Consciousness of civilizations which have reached higher levels of spiritual development. It is the work of Ascension to raise yourselves up to a conscious awareness in which you can grasp the given-ness of Love and Light that exists in the Universe at large. Only here on Earth, and the few other places which have experienced 3-dimensional life, are intelligent beings so bound to the experience of the five senses.
Think of it, Dear Ones. As you elevate yourselves to higher-dimensional awareness, you will enter into a world inhabited by billions of others – beings of all shapes and sizes who have traveled the path to Unity consciousness through their own efforts to ascend, just as you are doing now. They are friends, teachers and experts in the very issues you are becoming aware of now. Not only do they not wish to harm you; they have traveled across the galaxies, across dimensions, to be here to observe and to help out any way they can. Some are closer to you genetically and experientially than others, but it matters not. All are benevolent, all exist in Love and Light.
As a matter of fact, Earth has the privileged position of being surrounded and protected by the Ashtar Command. Our dear Brother Ashtar is the Supreme Commander of the organization which oversees the starships of the Intergalactic Federation of Light, which is here to make sure that no negative energies, no outside invaders will be allowed to interfere with your Ascension. Yes, there are a few bothersome groups around the cosmos, similar to the Reptilians who caused such havoc here in the past. They are without exception entities from lower vibrational dimensions who have developed some advanced technologies without having gained the wisdom and maturity to know how to join in the cooperative and loving fellowship of the cosmic family of Light.
You see, it is always the lesson to be learned by entities in lower dimensions that more evolved beings are also more benevolent than they are themselves, and that cooperation and friendship are always more satisfactory than brute force. We always work with them to teach patience, tolerance and Love, but when a planet is in Ascension, it must not be disturbed. Our Mother Earth is at last free to stretch herself, cleanse herself of the eons of toxins and destruction she has tolerated, and enjoy a newly established bond of high vibrational Unity with other planets. She is reveling in the experience of Love and Light which the 5th dimension offers.
Like you, Mother Earth has yearned for the sense of completion you are beginning to discover. She is generous in her gifts to her human inhabitants, but she does have a mind of her own, as you might say. She has waited patiently as you slowly awaken to the need to eliminate the dangerous weaponry and destructive energy policies that have caused such damage to her surface. Every explosion, every drilling into the depths of her body is felt just as you would feel it – with excruciating pain. Every oil spill leaves her sickened physically and emotionally; every toxic chemical spill and airborne release of poisons causes her distress. She suffers when the plant and animal Kingdoms endure trauma, for they are her children too.
As you awaken, you will notice the great sense of relief and joy your Mother is feeling at your graduation into higher consciousness. You are all in this together, as you might say. The environmentalists were right about all being in this ship together, although you may now understand that Earth is not the only Home you have experienced.
Once you ascend to higher dimensions, you may be one who will return on the great ships to your home planet, in the embrace of your Star family. If you are one who has grown attached to this experience of life on Earth, you may have already committed to returning to help those who have not yet ascended. Even though we all originated from far-flung places, this very special small planet does exercise a hold on us.
There is a special charm, a special beauty here on the Blue Planet. You might say we have experienced our finest hour here, working together through lifetime after lifetime, slogging through the Dark Times, through hardship and deprivation to ultimate triumph. We have succeeded, my Beloved family, in our blessed endeavor. We have been through the great challenges, and we have managed to remain in Faith and in Love.
Now is the time for us to stretch our arms to the sky, to rejoice in our friendship, and to breathe the great Love of our Creator, who smiles on us with unending benevolence. Let us turn to each other in gratitude and forgiveness, for each player in this great drama has taken his or her turn in the spotlight, for better or worse. Each one has contributed to the great expansion of knowledge and experience; each has been a precious part in the historic story of the fall and ultimate rise of Mother Earth and her human children.
I congratulate you, I appreciate you, and I Love you beyond measure. I have known the companionship and love of all of you, and it has created an eternal bond of Love between us. We are truly One.
I am your Sananda. I am with you always.
