  1. Words that should be taken to heart. Thank you for following. My blog is in it’s infancy and I am very grateful for all of those who find something worth reading on my site and take the time to come back to see what I have to say. Please keep putting out this type of quality wisdom and information. The future of our people depends on those who are willing to step out of their safety zone and take a chance.

    Thank you for sharing this simple, yet profound wisdom. IMHO, wisdom transcends religion or label and shouldn’t be qualified based on origin.

    Interesting – the quote is similar to Ruiz 5th Agreement (of The 4 Agreements fame)

    “Don’t believe yourself, and don’t believe anyone else.”

    More succinctly, the Fifth Agreement is: “Be Skeptical”

    Of course, by skeptical here, he doesn’t mean judgmental. He means pay attention to what is true for you and doesn’t listen to the stories your mind makes up.

    Thanks for following my blog. I believe every being has unlimited potential in them and whatever we put our mind to it, we can do it. And that is what you did to come through the darkness. Bravo! And I am trying to do just as what Buddha says in that quote.
