Daily Dose of Inspiration

“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.”

~ Buddha

We are all seeking Truth, and all too often we are seeking it out there. But the Truth, my friend, is embedded in your heart. It’s something you have to discover for yourself. You’ll know it by the jolt of comprehension, or perhaps by the calm, compassionate, and patient understanding that comes over you. Truth brings certainty, peace and courage with it.

And if ever you’re in doubt, just follow the golden rule — treat others the way you’d like to be treated.
