Unwavering

Napali Coast

‘An excellent man, like precious metal,
Is in every way invariable;
A villain, like the beams of a balance,
Is always varying, upwards and downwards.’

Tibetan Yoga & Secret Doctrines

Holy texts of wisdom are designed to help us see through the layers of our lives.

They serve as guidelines to keep us on the path to true wisdom and understanding.

They help us to develop a moral compass, to know the difference between right and wrong.

They teach us that we are all interconnected and it is best to serve others in a good way, and not steal or cheat or deceive anyone in a bad way.

Most holy texts teach us the very nature of karma; that what you sow you reap, that you could be of the greatest help to others in this world, or you could con, steal, cheat and torment others in the worst way possible.

Holy texts speak of divine wisdom, as well as common sense.

As in Christianity, Christians are taught the 10 Commandments, and these are similar to the teachings of The Buddha and in Hinduism and other World Religions.

The holy scriptures teach us that money can be the root to all Evil, as it will tempt us to be greedy, dishonest and to steal from others.

Moral fiber is the basis for any Life that is of a clean and clear conscience, and if we can not be of benefit to our family and loved ones, at least don’t harm them.

Even when others have deceived and offended us in any way, it’s best to take the high road and practice forgiveness. For it’s these situations where we learn the most because they are most challenging.

It’s important to create opportunities out of obstacles, but those opportunities should be for the good of ourselves and others.

It’s also important in Life to be firm in our spiritual beliefs, and to be unwavering in our commitments to do good unto others, and to help ourselves in meditation and prayer.

Intentions are the beginning of what become our actions.

Honesty is the best policy.

I will just end this writing by saying that good intentions are very important.
