“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.”
In other words what you focus on is what you become and what you attract into your life. What ever you take your focus away from fades out of your life. This ties back into things like the law of attraction and to movies like The Secret.
“All wrong-doing arises because of mind. if mind is transformed can wrong-doing remain?”
This is a core belief that basically means that everything that is wrong with our lives and the world around us stems from bad things in our mind. When you grow and free your mind evils, negativity, and suffering disappear from our lives.
“Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”
This means that there is plenty for everyone. Reality is that abundance is everywhere and none of us should be greedy.
“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.”
We need to live in the now. By allowing ourselves to focus on something that isn’t the present we create anxieties and stress in our lives. Leaning to live in the moment is one of the greatest feats for anyone who seeks to develop and clear their mind.
“Even death is not to be feared by one who has lived wisely.”
If you can free your mind and become awakened then you will understand the true meaning of life. By doing this you free yourself from the pain and fear of death.
“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.”
Anything that we believe is that way because we believe it to be. Our minds and the way we think form the world around us. Our distinctions about reality are not someone else’s and we need to consider that when we go through life. Everything is a matter of one’s perspective.
