f you need some spiritual wisdom right now, you have come to the right place. Still, as an agnostic atheist, the history of this religion contains a lot of nice morals shared by the common sense of today. Gautama Buddha in ancient India is a fascinating figure of philosophy and overall mediation practises. Much more than some cult, it is the mindfulness in all things that need to be considered.

  • “However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?”
  • “There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills.”
  • “No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.”
  • “All that we are is the result of what we have thought: it is founded on our thoughts and made up of our thoughts. If a man speak or act with an evil thought, suffering follows him as the wheel follows the hoof of the beast that draws the wagon…. If a man speak or act with a good thought, happiness follows him like a shadow that never leaves him.”
  • “Peace comes from within.  Do not seek it without.”
  • “Three things can not hide for long: the Moon, the Sun and the Truth.”
  • “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.”
  • “Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.”
  • “Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.”
  • “Your purpose in life is to find your purpose and give your whole heart and soul to it”
  • “Every morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.”
  • “A man is not called wise because he talks and talks again; but if he is peaceful, loving and fearless then he is in truth called wise.”
  • “An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.”
  • “Whatever a monk keeps pursuing with his thinking and pondering, that becomes the inclination of his awareness.”
  • “Words do not express thoughts very well; every thing immediately becomes a little different, a little distorted, a little foolish. And yet it also pleases me and seems right that what is of value and wisdom of one man seems nonsense to another.”
  • “You as much as your own thoughts unguarded.”

Buddhism is an odd sort of spending most of your day in an out of body experience state. Science and this art into the human condition is also an interesting way to learn about consciousness. This stuff is not all nonsense and is very important to a lot of key demographics. Usually the furthest away from the polar opposite in hate and vanity.
