The Timeless Wisdom of Buddha
Still so relevant today is the wisdom Buddha taught 2,500 years ago. Buddha taught how to live an ethical life, calm your mind and experience the deepest spiritual peace. His teachings have spread all over the world into nearly every country and his message is said to be timeless and universal.
Timeless because it does not depend on culture or the time in history and universal because as long as you are a human being with a mind you can benefit from following his wisdom. One of Buddha’s main messages was kindness and compassion to all sentient beings. His teachings were his offering to the world to help all sentient beings live a happy life and transcend the ordinary suffering that comes with living.
1. Its Okay to Start Small
“A jug fills drop by drop.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Every artist was once an amateur.”We all start small, do not despise small beginnings. If you’re consistent, and if you’re patient, you will succeed! No one succeeds over night; success belongs to those who are willing to start small and patiently work until their jug is filled.
2. Thoughts Become Things
“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.”
