In All The World Of Man

Post by MasterSamWise » Fri Nov 02, 2007 1:25 pm

[align=center]In all the world of man, and in all the world of Gods, this alone is the truth: All things are impermanent.

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.

We are such stuff as dreams are made of, and our brief life is rounded with a sleep.

There is nothing good or bad in the world, but thinking makes it so

In fear of death, I built a house
And my house is a house of the void of truth
Now I fear not death.

In fear of want, I sought wealth
And my wealth is glorious, unending, sevenfold.
Now I fear not want.

In fear of hunger, I sought food
And my food is the food of meditation upon truth.
Now I fear not hunger.

In fear of weariness, I sought a companion
And my companion is the everlasting void of bliss.
Now I fear not weariness.

I am a Sage who possesses in plentitude
The manifold treasures of desire, and wherever I dwell I am happy.[/align]
