Budda says


Sunday, October 07, 2012

I am not overly religious myself. I hold mostly christian ideals but I believe their have been other holy people with some wonderful ideals as well. So on to Budda

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday.

    I am a Methodist too. I really like the second saying - we need to love ourselves.
