“If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.” ~ Buddha
There are so many beautiful, powerful and life changing lessons I have learned from studying Buddhism and from reading many of Buddha’s quotes. And today I want to share 25 of these beautiful lessons with you.
Here are 25 Life Changing Lessons from Buddha:
“A dog is not considered a good dog because he is a good barker. A man is not considered a good man because he is a good talker.”
“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.”
4. Who looks inside awakens.
“The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart.”
5. Words have the power to both hurt and heal.
“Words have the power to both destroy and heal. When words are both true and kind, they can change our world.” ~ Buddha
“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.”
“Have compassion for all beings, rich and poor alike; each has their suffering. Some suffer too much, others too little.”
“Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.”
“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.”
16. Nobody is more deserving of your love than you yourself are.
18. Spirituality isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity.
20. Look for peace within yourself.
24. Give up labels.
“In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true.”
