The Guatam Buddha is at the center of Buddhist teachings, and his words of wisdom have been passed down over the millennia through oral teachings and written records. Buddha embodied the spirit of peace, acceptance, and non-attachment to material possessions, and through his messages we can come to a better understanding of our spiritual and emotional selves.
Here are 11 lessons from the Buddha that will change the way you live your life:
1) “When you like a flower, you just pluck it. But when you love a flower, you water it daily.”
There is a sharp contrast between unconditional love and emotions that are based on our ego’s needs and desires. By learning to understand the true meaning of what love is, we can appreciate the beauty and power it brings to our lives.
2) “Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.”
The truth cannot be hidden from those who seek it. No matter what life throws at you or what manipulations you have to deal with from others, eventually the true nature of a situation will always be revealed.
