Lets Fix Society



“Want to know what is wrong with a child? Look at the parents. Want to know whats wrong with the parents? Look at society and culture. Look at its values. Want to know whats wrong with its values? Look at its foremost thinkers and leaders.”

Thoughts Live



“We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far.”

“All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.”

“The world is the great gymnasium where we come to make ourselves strong.”
 
“Condemn none: if you can stretch out a helping hand, do so. If you cannot, fold your hands, bless your brothers, and let them go their own way.”
 
“Truth can be stated in a thousand different ways, yet each one can be true.”
 
“All differences in this world are of degree, and not of kind, because oneness is the secret of everything.”
 
“Where can we go to find God if we cannot see Him in our own hearts and in every living being.”
“Arise, awake and do not stop until the goal is reached.”
 
“You cannot believe in God until you believe in yourself.”
“You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.”

Swami Vivekananda




Fortune vs. Virtue

 

Be able to distinguish and tell the difference between fortune and virtue. Fortune is what happens to you or other people, essentially out of your control. Virtue on the other hand is what you do about what has happened or what has been done to you, essentially what you can control and influence. Therefore aim for virtuousness and your chances of becoming fortunate will surely rise.

 

 

A Mental Mosaic

“Without the arts, life appears boring, drab, dry and meaningless. Without the science’s life would appear senseless and random. Therefore, they are both equally important, for they endow the world and its inhabitants with the tools to cultivate, nourish, explore and advance.

Working in unison together, they both support the well-being of humanity. Let us not get caught up in absolutist all-or-nothing thinking. There are many unique pieces that constitute the mosaic of life. Much like that of human knowledge, understanding and experiences.

We would be wise to expand our knowledge base, including all the creations and permutations that have been manifested by humanity.”
