Self-transformation

ram H singhal

“If you want to awaken all of humanity,

then awaken all of yourself.

If you want to eliminate the sufffering in the world,

then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself.

Truly,

the greatest gift you have to give is…….

that of your own self-transformation.

-Lao Tzu

(570-490 BC)

Goodness and Honesty

ram H singhal

Treat those who are good with goodness,
and
also treat those who are not good with goodness.
Thus
goodness is attained.

Be honest to those who are honest,
and
be also honest to those who are not honest.
Thus
honesty is attained.

-Lao Tzu

Sea of Love

ram H singhal

“All streams flow to the sea ,

because it is lower than they are.

Humility gives it its power.

if you want to govern the people,

you must place yourself below them.

if you want to lead the people,

you must learn how to follow them.”

Lao Tzu

(570-490 BC)

Fragrance of Silence

ram H singhal

The disciples were absorbed in a discussion

on

” Lao-tzu’s” dictum:

“Those who know, do not say;
Those who say, do not know.”

When the master entered,

they asked him what the words meant ?

Said the master, “Which of you knows the fragrance of a rose?”

All of them indicated that they knew.

Then he said, “Put it into words.”

All of them were …… Silent.

Love All.

Disciple of Life

ram H singhal

“Human are born soft and supple;

dead they are stiff and hard.

Plants are born tender and pliant;

dead, they are brittle and dry.

Thus whoever is stiff

and

inflexible

is a disciple of death.

Whoever is soft

and

yielding

is a disciple of life.

The hard and stiff will be broken.

The soft and supple will prevail.”

Lao Tzu( 570 – 490 BC )

Love All.
