Siddhartha Gautama was a great spiritual leader from ancient India who founded Buddhism. acheter coque iphone en ligne In most Buddhist traditions, he is considered the Supreme Buddha. “Buddha” is interpreted to mean “awakened one” or “the enlightened one.” Siddhartha is the primary figure in Buddhism, and the accounts of his life, teachings, and monastic rules were recapitulated after his death and memorized by his followers. Today I want to discuss some very important life lessons which I’ve derived from the teachings of Buddha. 1. Its Okay to Start Small Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Every artist was once an amateur.” We all start small, do not despise small beginnings. If you’re consistent, and if you’re patient, you will succeed! No one succeeds over night; success belongs to those who are willing to start small and patiently work until their jug is filled. coque iphone 8 2. Thoughts Become Things “All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.” Buddha said, “The mind is everything. What you think you become.” James Allen said, “Man is mind.” In order to live rightly, you must fill your mind with “right” thoughts. Your thinking determines your actions; your actions determine your outcome. Right thinking will grant you everything you desire; wrong thinking is a vice that will eventually destroy you. coque iphone If you change your thinking you will change your life. coque iphone Buddha said, “All wrong-doing arises because of mind. If mind is transformed can wrong-doing remain?” 3. Forgive “Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.” When you release those who you are holding captive in the prison of un-forgiveness, it is you who is released from prison. You can’t keep someone down, without staying down with them. Learn to forgive, learn to forgive quickly. 4. It’s Your Actions That Count “However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?” They say “Talk is cheap,” because it is. To progress you must act; to progress quickly, you must act daily. Greatness will not fall upon you! Greatness is for everyone, but only those who are willing to act consistently will experience it. There’s a proverb that goes, “God gives every bird a worm, but he doesn’t throw it into their nest.” To be great you must act great. Buddha said, “I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act; but I do believe in a fate that falls on them unless they act.” 5. Seek to Understand “In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.” Stephen Covey said, “Seek to understand first, then to be understood.” Easily said, very difficult to do; you must labor to understand the “other” person’s perspective. When you feel anger rising, let it cease. Listen to others, understand their perspective, and you will have more peace. Be more concerned with being happy, than being right 6. Conquer Yourself “It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.” He who can conquer himself is greater than the mighty. To conquer yourself you must conquer your mind. You must control your thinking. Your thoughts cannot be tossed to and fro like the waves of the sea. You may be thinking, “I can’t control my thoughts, if a thought comes, it comes.” To that I say, you may not be able to stop a bird from flying over your head, but you can certainly stop him from building a nest in your hair. Dismiss thoughts that are contrary to the life you desire to live. Buddha said, “It is a man’s own mind, not his enemy or foe that lures him to evil ways.” 7. Live in Peace “Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.” Don’t look without for something that can only be found within. Many times we may look without only to distract ourselves from the reality we know is true. That reality is that peace can only be found within. Peace is not a new job, peace is not a new car, or a new spouse….peace is a new perspective, and that new perspective begins with you. 8. Be Thankful “Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.” There’s always something to be thankful for. Don’t be so pessimistic that for a moment, even a split moment, you fail to realize the thousands of things you have to be thankful for. Everyone didn’t wake up this morning; some people went to sleep last night for the last time. There’s always something to be grateful for, recognize it, and give thanks. A grateful heart will make you great! 9. Be True to What You Know “The only real failure in life is not to be true to the best one knows.” We know a lot, but we don’t always do what we know. If you fail, it won’t be because you didn’t know; it will be because you didn’t do what you knew to do. coque iphone 8 Work to do what you know to do. Don’t just consume information, but ponder on thoughts that are conducive to what you desire to become until you have a burning desire to manifest it. 10. Travel Well “It is better to travel well than to arrive.” Life is about the journey! I’m not trying to arrive, I’m already there. I am happy, and content, and satisfied where I am today. I may experience nicer places, and finer wines, but I am traveling well. Don’t put off your happiness into some nebulous time in the future based on some goal that you think will bring you happiness.
Buddha in a Cutthroat Economy
How Would Buddha Organize Our Cutthroat Modern Economy? Clair Brown, a professor emeritus at UC Berkeley, taught economics for over 30 years. She often found that the students in her sprawling introductory classes had a hard time reconciling the dominant neoclassical model that she taught with the real world that they experienced from day to day. They wanted to know why there was so much emphasis on economic growth in the abstract, and so little discussion of issues like inequality and environmental degradation. Over the years, Brown herself had put a lot of thought into the same questions. coque iphone Brown is also a practicing Buddhist. And this year, she decided to offer a course in “Buddhist economics.” BillMoyers.com asked her to explain how Buddha would organize an economy. Below is a transcript of our discussion that’s been lightly edited for clarity. Joshua Holland: One of the materials you offer in your course is a book called “Buddhist Economics: A Middle Way for the Market Place”. It’s by Prayudh Payutto, a Thai practitioner, and he writes: “Economics is one science which most clearly integrates the concrete and the abstract. It is the realm in which abstract human values interact most palpably with the material world. If economists were to stop evading the issues of moral values, they would be in a better position to influence the world in a fundamental way. What would incorporating moral values into the realm of economics look like in practice? Clair Brown: I see Buddhist economics as having three legs. One is the capabilities and freedom approach of Amartya Sen, for which he won the Nobel Prize. And he’s a wonderfully deep thinker, in that he explains very carefully what’s wrong with the mainstream neoclassical model. He says that you absolutely have to be able to compare rich people and poor people and their wellbeing, and you absolutely have to care about inequality. He comes from India and his contribution is in development economics, so he says, “What do people get from the economy and from economic growth?” What they want is a better life. He developed an economic model that looks at how well people can live their lives, and that includes very basic things, like their health, their education, their integration into society. We care a lot about the distribution of income within a society. So he developed a model, for which he won the Nobel Prize, which has had an enormous impact. I see it as the cornerstone of how Buddha would teach economics to undergraduates, but we need to add two things. One is that Amartya Sen didn’t really spend a whole lot of time on sustainability, and there’s been a lot more work done on how we can incorporate sustainability into economics, and that’s called ecological economics. And that’s very important. Then we add one more thing — which is really important to Buddhists — that you relieve suffering. We make that the third leg. Holland: A big part of Sen’s philosophy of welfare economics was coming up with different ways to measure economic well-being. What measures would Buddhist economics employ? Brown: There have been a couple of approaches that have taken off from Sen’s work. Bhutan used one of them — it is a Buddhist country — creating the Bhutan Gross National Happiness Index. So they focused on how happy their people were. They went out and surveyed every single person in Bhutan and figured out what capabilities they had, what they didn’t have, and how good they felt about their lives. And then they came back and they said, “Okay, we now know that actually we have a lot of people who are suffering and need better lives.” Those were especially people in rural areas who were very, very poor. And they said, “So we’re going to now focus all of our economic growth on helping the people who are suffering the most and have the roughest lives. They need more education, they need more healthcare.” And in the cities, they found that people actually were getting education and healthcare. Some needed more, but the people in the cities that were unhappy were unhappy because they didn’t think their communities had enough infrastructure and support to function well. They wanted more balance in their lives between work and family and community. And so Bhutan said, “Okay, then we’re going to use our economic growth to work on that. We don’t think of economic growth as valuable, except to the extent that it can make people happier and relieve suffering.” And one of their criteria also was sustainability, and they said, “Actually, we need to work more on the sustainability part. We haven’t incorporated that part enough in our model.” Another way of thinking about measuring economic growth is ecological economics, which looks at the entire output of the economy in terms of its impact on the environment. But not just in one time period. This approach brings the potential negative impact on the environment for future generations back into your growth rate today, so that you have a total growth rate that incorporates what’s happening today — the positive and negative— and what’s happening over time. And that really does help us understand how much we are really benefiting right now from our economy’s growth. Holland: If, for example, I overfish my fisheries, ecological economics factors in how that’s going to damage my children’s economic outcomes. coque iphone Is that right? Brown: That’s right. And if you increase global warming because of your carbon emissions, you put that into the equation. Holland: I can imagine readers thinking, “This sounds like central planning.” Is that misunderstanding the kind of organization that Buddha would recommend? Brown: Well, Bhutan certainly has a very strong government. But they actually need to be. soldes coque iphone 2019 They really need to help the rural poor. What would Buddha say about that? He would start out by saying, you know, we’re all one. So anything that happens to one of us happens to all of us. coque iphone pas cher That’s really central. Then the next thing Buddha would say is that everything is impermanent. No matter what’s going on at any given time, it’s not permanent, so basically we should think about everyone’s well-being. And in the Payutto book you mentioned, he’s very strong on government. He comes back time and time again—a little bit too much for my liking—to talk about the role of government in his vision of Buddhist economics. So I think Buddhist economics definitely has a role for government, but it also challenges the individual to understand how they can live their life in a more meaningful way and a way that creates value for them and the people around them. Holland: Social democracy differs from socialism in that it sees the market as the most efficient means of distribution, but then it also embraces a strong social safety net and publicly financed ladders of upward mobility. What about the efficiency part of that equation? Is that missing in the Buddhist economic philosophy? Brown: Well, I think if you take Amartya Sen as your basic model, he would agree with everything you said about the role of government and the role of markets. Sen has a wonderful chapter in his book, Development as Freedom, that talks about why we need markets and what markets do. And then he quickly adds, but of course, you have to have the government take care of those externalities that are causing environmental problems. You need governments to absolutely ensure a really strong safety net. coque iphone pas cher Not to mention, you need governments to provide healthcare, education and all the things that we need to provide jointly. Holland: But does it fit into a modern, industrialized economy like ours? What would Buddha say about workplace conditions and labor relations? Would a Buddhist economy require a corporate model that’s different from the hierarchical one in which most of us in the United States work? Brown: I think that the main thing that you need to embrace is “right livelihood,” which is one of the cornerstones of Buddhist economics. That’s basically how you make a living and how you produce goods and services. And the number one rule there is that you harm no one. Now, that’s a pretty big order. coque iphone 8 That means that you have really strong enforcement of labor standards, not only at home, but abroad because of imports, and you would not allow companies or workers to harm each other or to be harmed. And so right livelihood is a very powerful mandate in Buddhist economics. And as some of my students said, “Wow, it sounds like it’d be impossible to do this. We just do so much harm all the time in our economy.” And it is a challenge. It’s a really big challenge, but that’s one of the things we need to think about: When am I harming others, and what can I do differently? Holland: Americans earn more, on average, than people in most European countries, but we also work about 30 percent more hours per year than they do. And we deal with more stress. What would Buddhist economists say about the balance between work and the rest of life? Brown: One of the reasons I got interested in Buddhist economics and wanted to teach this course — and I also wrote a book, called American Standards of Living — is that I was just appalled by the materialism in our culture, and how, with economic growth and people getting better and better off, we didn’t cut back on work, as people had predicted. We didn’t make life more balanced, we didn’t take time to be creative and spend time with our friends and build our communities. Instead, we just kept working harder and harder. And today, the materialistic culture, which is reinforced by the mainstream economic model, says, “Hey, you want to feel better? Make more money and go shopping”— it’s like you can never be satiated with this model. And it seems like that reflects American life. We want more and more, we consume more and more, and the other things in life that should be important to us—our families, our communities—are suffering from that. And of course, I think we’re suffering too from all the stress. So Buddhist economics would definitely say, “Hey, let’s step back, let’s focus on our wellbeing, and how we care for the environment and each other.” Joshua Holland is a senior digital producer for BillMoyers.com.

The Creative Aspect of Evolution
By Obadiah Harris, Ph.D. The theory of evolution, when properly interpreted, deepens man’s insight into the meaning of life and elevates his status as a participant in a vast and boundless unfoldment of creativity. The Bible says that God made man but little lower than the angels. Evolution, when rightly understood, does not relegate man to some inferior role, or demote him from some pinnacle of dominion on which he was previously stationed. It adds luster to his past achievements and hope for his future attainments. The right interpretation of this theory imparts to man “a cosmic perspective, a profound understanding of the principles of existence, and the significance of the world process.” It is only if evolution is narrowly interpreted that the error is made of falling into “materialism, skepticism, negativism, etc. which are interwoven into serious problems of contemporary civilization.” Thus, when understood in its deeper meaning, the principle of evolution can make “a positive contribution… to our understanding of life and its significance,” and to the solution of its problems. To find this deeper meaning it is necessary to contrast the theory of evolution with the ancient idea of creation in time. Perhaps some light can be thrown on the idea of creation in time by telling a fable about it which has a very telling point. Once three friends, a doctor, an architect and a politician, went for a walk. They got in to a discussion as to whose profession was the earliest. Said the doctor, “Surely the doctor’s profession is the earliest, because, as you know, God created Eve from a rib taken out of Adam, and to do that he had to make a surgical operation. coque iphone 6 So the medical art of surgery is certainly the earliest.” The architect then spoke up and said, “No, we must go beyond that. Don’t you know that God created the world out of chaos? It is the profession of the architect to create something orderly, something useful, out of the disorder and chaos and to impose form upon formlessness.” At this the politician hastened to remark: “Ah chaos!–and who made this chaos?” This story calls our attention to the problem of absolute beginning. What is the beginning? Can you imagine any beginning of time? Greek philosophy started with the idea of chaos, and with the idea of God conceived as the spirit of intelligence brooding over chaos, and fashioned out of that chaos the cosmos, the universe. coque iphone x But, as the politician says, “chaos has its beginning too.” That is, if there is chaos or disorder, it pre-supposes some kind of previous state of order that was broken up. coque iphone 7 To give a homely example, if a housewife says that her whole house is a mess, she means she has allowed it to fall in to disorder. coque iphone pas cher She does not mean that her house was never in order. coque iphone Perhaps she got too busy with something else. So we get to no absolute beginning of time by saying, as Greek philosophy did, that the universe came out of chaos. coque iphone 2019 Now let us turn to the theological doctrine of creation in time. We are all familiar with the account of creation in the Bible. The first words of the first chapter of Genesis says, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth, and the earth was without form and void.” That is how the Bible starts, with creation in time, the forming of the world out of void, nothingness. Theology begins with God and nothingness. In other words, theology believes that there was a time when there was nothing, the world did not exist. coque iphone soldes Nothing existed, and out of that all-pervasive nothingness God summoned into existence this world. But what is the nature of nothingness? Sages and philosophers have pondered this question through all history. Can you imagine how something can come out of nothing? … Obadiah Harris, P.h.D.
Clairvoyant Angelic Healing
You Angel You – Peter and Anne Selby Clairvoyant Angelic Healing Clairvoyant Angelic Healing is a modality in which Angels provide insights into the causes of dis-ease (albeit physical, emotional, mental or spiritual), communicating through ancient archetypes and symbols that reference problematic areas within one’s consciousness. Responding to the invitation by our clients to do so, we invoke the guidance and help of their Guardian Angels, their connection to Source (however they define Source) and their Higher Self to unveil the hidden causation of suffering and limitation in connecting with their own Divine Nature and vibrant health. acheter coque iphone en ligne Thus we see healing on the physical plane as a manifestation of the deeper healing in the Soul and the Spirit, which can be blocked by virtue of unresolved conflicts and traumatic residues from this life and past lives. coque iphone en ligne Similarly, Angels support their charges to heal unresolved negative ancestral projections (negative lineage influences), thus creating blessings for both their ancestors and their progeny. Angels also reveal and heal dysfunctional relationship patterns and co-dependencies that plague humans everywhere through providing insights into the inner workings of their own psyche and their own ‘inner couple’. They show how these unconscious inner workings project onto the outer world and into one’s relationships, creating challenges that ultimately are best resolved from within oneself where Angels help us all to heal through promoting higher awareness and supporting healthier choices. Through helping their charges to reconnect to their original virtues and authentic angelic nature, Angels can help people ‘reset’/heal their consciousness per their original design as a Hu-Man Being as being made in the image of God Source, thus co-creating a better life and a healthier body. coque iphone 8 About Peter and Anne Peter & Anne make their home in Sisters, Oregon and work together co-facilitating private healing sessions, distance healings, teaching workshops & public speaking.

Edgar Cayce – Pioneer, Prophet
The Sleeping Prophet – Who was Edgar Cayce and what are Edgar Cayce Readings? Every year, tens of thousands of people from all over the world become interested in the life work of one ordinary man. He was an average individual in most respects: a loving husband, a father of two children, a skilled photographer, a devoted Sunday School teacher, and an eager gardener. Yet, throughout his life, he also displayed one of the most remarkable psychic talents of all time. His name was Edgar Cayce. soldes coque iphone For forty-three years of his adult life, Edgar Cayce demonstrated the uncanny ability to put himself into some kind of self-induced sleep state by lying down on a couch, closing his eyes, and folding his hands over his stomach. This state of relaxation and meditation enabled him to place his mind in contact with all time and space. From this state he could respond to questions as diverse as, “”What are the secrets of the universe?”” to “”How can I remove a wart?”” His responses to these questions came to be called “”readings”” and contain insights so valuable that even to this day individuals have found practical help for everything from maintaining a well-balanced diet and improving human relationships to overcoming life-threatening illnesses and experiencing a closer walk with God. coque iphone 8 Though Cayce died more than half a century ago, the timeliness of the material in the readings is evidenced by approximately one dozen biographies and more than 300 titles that discuss various aspects of this man’s life and work. These books contain a corpus of information so valuable that even Edgar Cayce himself might have hesitated to predict their impact on the latter part of the twentieth century. Sixty years ago who could have known that terms such as “”meditation,”” “”akashic records,”” “”spiritual growth,”” “”auras,”” “”soul mates,”” and “”holism”” would become household words to hundreds of thousands? Further details about his life and work are explored in such classic works as There Is a River (1942) by Thomas Sugrue, The Sleeping Prophet (1967) by Jess Stearn, Many Mansions (1950) by Gina Cerminara, and Edgar Cayce-An American Prophet (2000) by Sidney Kirkpatrick. Daily for over forty years of his adult life, Cayce would lie down on a couch with his hands folded over his stomach and allow himself to enter a self-induced sleep state. Then, provided with the name and location of an individual anywhere in the world he would speak in a normal voice and give answers to any questions about that person that he was asked. coque iphone xs max These answers, which came to be called “”readings”” were written down by a stenographer, who kept one copy on file and sent another to the person who had requested the information. Today on file at the Association for Research and Enlightenment, Inc. coque iphone (A.R.E.), in Virginia Beach, Virginia, are copies of more than 14,000 of Edgar Cayce’s readings. These are available to the public and have been filed along with any follow-up reports received from the individuals who had asked for the readings. This material represents the most massive collection of psychic information ever obtained from a single source. The organization founded by Cayce in 1931 to document, research and disseminate his information has grown from a few hundred supporters at the time of Cayce’s death in 1945 to one which is worldwide. coque iphone xs max Countless individuals have been touched by the life work of this man who was raised a simple farm boy and yet became one of the most versatile and credible psychics the world has ever known. In addition to the Cayce readings, the organization makes available a large collection of Edgar Cayce books, New Age books, Self-Help books and Metaphysical Books. Since 1901, the information in the Cayce readings has been explored by individuals from every imaginable background and discipline. In addition to individuals from all walks and stations of life, this vast scope of materials has come to the attention of educators, historians, theologians, medical professionals, and scientists. No doubt, part of the attraction has been that regardless of the field of study, Cayce has continually proven himself years ahead of his time. Decades ago, he was emphasizing the importance of diet, attitudes, emotions, exercise, and the patient’s role – physically, mentally, and spiritually – in the treatment of illness. As a result, he has been called “”the father of holistic medicine”” and has been recognized for describing the workings of the human body and foreseeing the direction of health care. In the field of psychology, he has often been compared to Carl Jung. coque iphone 8 In the realm of education, he stands with Rudlolf Steiner. Dr. Richard H. Drummond, one of the world’s most renowned theological scholars, called the Cayce information on spirituality “”the finest devotional material of the 20th century.”” In history, the Cayce readings gave insights into Judaism that were verified a decade after his death. In world affairs, he saw the collapse of communism nearly fifty years before it happened. Even in the field of physics, a professor and fellow of the American Physical Society theorized a connection between the elementary-particle theory and the way in which Edgar Cayce received his information. Repeatedly, science and history have validated concepts and ideas explored in Cayce’s psychic information. The wealth of these insights has resulted in hundreds of books that explore various aspects of this man’s life and work, not to mention foreign translations around the globe. As fascinating as the breadth of the material and its accuracy is the activity level of Cayce’s mind while he was in the reading state. It was not unusual for Edgar Cayce to be giving a reading, laying on his couch, somehow mentally in touch with another individual and his or her surroundings, activities, and relationships, providing answers to any question imaginable or any time-frame in history, and at the same time have a personal dream that Cayce could recall upon awakening. Occasionally, it was found that at the same time all this was going on, if an individual in the room with Cayce thought of something, he could respond to their query without even being asked! Even a casual perusal of the Cayce information makes it quite evident that the capacity of this man’s mind was not limited to what we might call the conventional parameters of time and space.
