Diamond’s Laws to Life By #10:
Wealth is the product of your capacity to think… -Ayn Rand, author.
The Law of Karma operates all the time. It is the law of action. Every action, mentally or physically performed has a specific effect on the life of a human being.
To be good just because it has become a habit to become good is not freedom. To be tempted is not bad, but to be able to overcome bad habits and temptation… that is real freedom.
You reap what you sow…- Jesus of Nazareth
Just as electricity does not die and energy does not die, we do not die. You can break a light bulb but the electricity does not stop flowing, it merely retires into the dynamo, into the ether…so the real self is never destroyed or dies, but the life energy, life electricity, is switched off from the body bulb and goes back to where it came from.
There is no greater every-day virtue than cheerfulness. This quality among people is like sunshine to the day, or a gentle renewing moisture to parched herbs. The light of a cheerful face diffuses itself, and it communicates the happy spirit that inspires it –Thomas Carlyle 1785-1881 Scottish philosopher
Remember, when you are unhappy it is generally because you do not visualize strongly enough the great things that you definitely want to accomplish in life, nor do you employ steadfastly enough you will power, your creative ability, and you patience until your dreams are materialized – Paramahansa Yogananda, founder of the Self Realization Society
She got the better of herself, and that’s the best kind of victory one can wish for –Miguel de Cervantes, author
Life is short. It can be snatched from you instantly… that is why we must do our best to do good, to love, and not waste too much time! Time bleeds!
Remember, there is always someone ahead of you and behind you on the ladder of life… the secret is to keep climbing…keep trying to improve and be a better person.
