THOUGHTS BORROWED

A few thoughts ... from Akbarali H. Jetha (from his book Reflections)

The richness of life comes with feeling.

Only a still mind
can experience Nothingness.

Those who cannot see God
cannot see good.

Life begins from within.

The effects of our acts
are experienced before they are committed.
We cannot get angry
without experiencing anger.
Likewise we cannot be kind
without experiencing kindness.

In truth there are no contradictions.

We cannot hate
without hate residing in us.

We are chained
by our impressions.

There are two types of people:
those who are less harmful
and those who are more harmful.

The world exists
only as we perceive it.

    And maybe...those who can find the love to outlast whatever harm has come their way in life...that I pray for all suffer.

  5. Wow...great thoughts, if our intent was always to do good, we'd always feel good...if we could align all of our intentions in this way, we could change our perception on life so positively.
    We'r all that pebble that drops on the calm surface of water, what kind of small rings of influence we want to send out is our choice.

    Thank you for this wisdom here...wonderful.
