Amazing quotes

 Quotes

Let me share some great quotes from the book:

    * You can measure the impeccability of your word by your level of
      self-love. How much you love yourself and how you feel about yourself
      are directly proportionate to the quality and integrity of your word.
      When you are impeccable with your word, you feel good; you feel happy
      and at peace.
    * It is very interesting how the human mind
      works. We have the need to justify everything, to explain and
      understand everything, in order to feel safe. We have millions of
      questions that need answers because there are so many things that the
      reasoning mind cannot explain. It is not important if the answer is
      correct; just the answer itself makes us feel safe. This is why we make
      assumptions. We make all sorts of assumptions because we don’t have the
      courage to ask questions.
    * Doing your best, you are going
      to live your life intensely. You are going to be productive, you are
      going to be good to yourself, because you will be giving yourself to
      your family, to your community, to everything. But it is the action
      that is going to make you feel intensely happy. When you always do your
      best, you take action. Doing your best is taking the action because you
      love it, not because you’re expecting a reward. Most people do exactly
      the opposite: they only take action when they expect a reward, and they
      don’t enjoy the action. And that’s the reason why they don’t do their
      best.
    * Very young children are not afraid to express what
      they feel. They are so loving that if they perceive love, they melt
      into love. They are not afraid to love at all. That is the description
      of a normal human being. As children we are not afraid of the future or
      ashamed of the past. Our normal human tendency is to enjoy life, to
      play, to explore, to be happy, and to love. You don’t need to blame
      your parents for teaching you to be like them. They had no control over
      the programming they received, so they couldn’t have behaved any
      differently. The real you is still a little child who never grew up.
    * The freedom we are looking for is the freedom to be ourselves. For
      every thousand people, nine hundred and ninety-nine are completely
      domesticated. The first step toward personal freedom is awareness.

Whatever
your faith, there are valuable lessons to be learned in this book. We
are all far more similar than dissimilar, and people are people
wherever you go. As Aristotle said, “It is the mark of an educated mind
to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.”

Keep
an open mind like an open net when you read this book and you may be
surprised what falls into it. Someone once told me to remember that the
mind is like a parachute: it only works when it’s open.
