Worldwide Laws of Life: 200 Eternal Spiritual Principles
John Marks Templeton

1 "Every time we hold our tongue instead of returning the sharp retort, show patience for another's faults, show a little more love and kindness; we are helping to stockpile more of these peace-bringing qualities in the world." Constance Foster

2 "Look around you. Find an avenue where you can offer the gift of yourself."

5 "There is no one without love to give."

6 "Everyone on the face of the globe is worthy of being loved."

7 "Love is the true nature of every soul. It's the nature of your soul to live and create experiences of love, because love originates in the essence of your being. The power, force, and energy of love reside self-existent withn us as our very life's blood. And it is so important to express that love!"

8 "Love, founded on truth and not on someone's mood, knows by its own fires of devotion how to make calamities serve a useful purpose."

9 "When we truly understand that no one can make us think or feel anything unless we give them permission, we begin to understand the vastness of our freedom. No person or circumstance has the power to change that truth."

10 "Love is an inner quality that sees good everywhere and in everybody. It insists that all is good, and by refusing to see anything but good, it tends to cause that quality to appear uppermost in itself and in other things."

11 "We are a part of the wholeness of creation. We do not walk our path of life alone. The whole universe walks with us, and we, as a human race, are coming to a greater realization that we are all 'one' in spirit."

12 "Our thoughts are, most assuredly, things. They are conceived in the mind and travel through time and space like ripples in a pond affecting all that they touch."

13 "As you begin to realize that God is lovingly in charge of your life, you may also understand that there is really nothing to fear."

14 "It's important to realize that there's good in everything and everyone."

15 "Beauty is inherent within the soul of each person, and this beauty can be made more apparent as we affirm it within our life and world and focus our minds to comprehend more clearly."

16 "To be a happy and useful person, it is important to understand and practice the Laws of Life. These laws are simply the set of rules by which we should live. They come from a vast array of sources – the major Scriptures of the world; various schools of philosophical thought, both ancient and modern; storytellers, such as Aesop; scientists, such as Isaac Newton; and from various artists and historians – to name a few."

17 "It is important to rise to the place where we are able to see the perfect image and likeness of God in all people."

18 "Socrates believed in a divine principle, expressed through an inner voice that directs our actions along the path of morality. He taught us to explore our thinking and behaviors that are unworthy of us."

19 "It is better to light a single candle than to curse the darkness." Motto of the Christophers

20 "There is no such thing as a problem without a gift for you in its hands."

21 "Every single atom in the universe responds and yields its deepest secrets to unconditional love."

22 "Without the Divine Being, I cannot succeed. With that assistance, I cannot fail." Abraham Lincoln

23 "We always have a choice. We can let the garden of our life grow wild and unattended until it fills with weeds, or we can take up the proper tools and tend to our garden until we create a place of unimaginable loveliness."

24 "Your answers lie inside you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust. You'll tend to forget all this. You can remember anytime you wish." Author unknown
