“All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we create the world.”
Hello Spiritual Warriors! And welcome to another magnificent day on this planet!!!
This week we explore the timeless teachings of the ancient philosophies & wisdom traditions that have guided mankind for thousands of years. But even more profound, is the fact that we can apply this knowledge to our daily life and integrate it into our real-world, modern-day existence.
So let’s go way, way back to the Old Testament, the Book of Psalms which scholars say was written around 950 BC. Chapter 46; verse 10 says, “Be still, and know that I am God”
The Buddha was said t have lived around 500 BC and his teachings are in The Dhammapada: The Way of the Buddha, Vol. 1; Chapter 1 where it says, “all that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we create the world.”
Also around the 5th century, the ancient Hindu text, the Bhagavad Gita was written. Chapter 2; verse 48 says, “yogastha kuru karmani” (establish yourself in one-ness, and then perform action)
No one knows if Lao Tzu ever existed or if his name was just ascribed to a body of ancient teachings. These were crafted around the first century before Christ. But one of my favorite quotes is, “when I let go of who I am, I become who I might be.”
In the first hundred years after Jesus walked the earth , The New Testament was written. The Book of Matthew; Chapter 7; verse 7 says, “ Ask and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you.”
The Islamic text, The Quran is said to have been revealed by God (Allah) to Mohammad through the angel Gabriel in the year 609. In chapter 24, Verse 22, it says. “let them forgive and overlook, do you not wish that Allah should forgive you? “
So many teachings from so many different sources have flowed to man & womankind over these thousands of years from so many other sources, cultures, and religions around the globe. And we get to choose the teaching that resonates with us – what stirs our hearts, and what awakens our soul.
Whatever wisdom sparks you, go there! Find what fills you with passion and translate it into your life. Select a saying from an ancient text and interpret it for your lifestyle, current situation, and flow it into your thoughts, your words, and your actions. There is no right, there is no wrong when it comes to these ancient teachings. There’s only connection at the deepest level. So find your source, meditate, connect to the stillness & silence that rests within and then breathe it every day for a week. Your life will awaken with grace & ease, your heart will open, your divine purpose will unfold, and your soul will soar.
