No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.
We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
It is a man’s own mind, not his enemy or foe that lures him to evil ways.
You cannot travel the path until you have become the path itself.
A family is a place where minds come in contact with one another. If these minds love one another the home will be as beautiful as a flower garden. But if these minds get out of harmony with one another it is like a storm that plays havoc with the garden.
To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue.
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.
You will not be punished for your anger; you will be punished by your anger.
