Quote for Thought: from Ascended Master, BUDDHA
I must be honest and say that I actually heard this quote clairaudiently (clear hearing) earlier today. I felt it was special message not only for myself, but I intuitively felt that many other people need to hear this message as well.
Buddha believed in living a humble and modest life. Buddha also believed that life does include suffering yet in life there needs to be the essence of compassion, understanding and kindness to every living thing. Compassion in Buddhism, is more understanding others, but also understanding of oneself through wisdom. Buddhism is more than just a religion, it’s a way or life. Buddhism can briefly summed up in three points:
- To lead a moral life
- To be mindfully aware of our thoughts and actions, and
- To develop wisdom and understanding
So when Buddha says “What we think, we become” it applies to who we wish to be – what path or direction we wish to take. If we wish to change our lives, our future, our path, we can – it comes down simply to our passion, our motivation, our drive, our aspiration towards who or what we wish to become.
So is change possible? Absolutely! If you wish to change one aspect of yourself, or even to have a complete makeover, this is indeed possible. There is only one, unique and beautiful you! And you are beautiful!
Since there are many different dominations of Buddhism, because of the emphasis changes from country to country due to the different customs and culture, however the essences of the Dharma or Truth of Buddhism doesn’t not change. I am reminded of Zen Buddhism, which has originated out of China. The essence of Zen is to immense yourself into it.
What I mean is, if you want to become healthier, fitter, mindful, patient, loving, kind, assertive or anything else – you just need to immense yourself into it! If you want that job, or if you want to finish that course, or if you want be more financial stable, or anything else that you wish to be – it’s time to immense yourself into this moment….to think and become who you truly are!!
Your mind, is your master and teacher. Be present in this moment, be thankful, be grateful. All will be well.
