Worldwide Laws of Life: 200 Eternal Spiritual Principles
John Marks Templeton

1 "Everyone on the face of the globe is worthy of being loved."

2 "Of all the powers that you possess as a human being, the greatest power is the power to CHOOSE. What you are right now is the sum total of the choices you have made in your life. The power to choose is also a power, or ability, to create WHO YOU ARE!"

3 "Love is an inner quality that sees good everywhere and in everybody. It insists that all is good, and by refusing to see anything but good, it tends to cause that quality to appear uppermost in itself and in other things."

4 "Every single atom in the universe responds and yields its deepest secrets to unconditional love."

5 "Love is the true nature of every soul. It's the nature of your soul to live and create experiences of love, because love originates in the essence of your being. The power, force, and energy of love reside self-existent withn us as our very life's blood. And it is so important to express that love!"

6 "The truly important ingredients of life are still the same as they always have been – true love and real friendship, honesty and faithfulness, sincerity, unselfishness, the concept that it is better to give than to receive, to do unto others as you would have them do unto you. These principles are still around; they haven't gone away." Nancy Reagan

7 "We are part of a grand program, moving forward in accordance with the unfolding of our expanding consicousness."

8 "Beauty is inherent within the soul of each person, and this beauty can be made more apparent as we affirm it within our life and world and focus our minds to comprehend more clearly."

9 "Your answers lie inside you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust. You'll tend to forget all this. You can remember anytime you wish." Author unknown

10 "Our thoughts are, most assuredly, things. They are conceived in the mind and travel through time and space like ripples in a pond affecting all that they touch."

11 "Every individual is like a thread in a beautiful tapestry with a vital contribution to make, not only to the sustenance of life as we know it, but in the creation and development of more beneficial expressions of life."

12 "When we truly understand that no one can make us think or feel anything unless we give them permission, we begin to understand the vastness of our freedom. No person or circumstance has the power to change that truth."

13 "Since the beginning of time, prayer, in some form, has been observed in almost every culture recorded and studied. The desire to attune one's self toward a higher point of view is an innate part of the human soul."

14 "It's important to realize that there's good in everything and everyone."

15 "All conditions and circumstances in affairs and body are attracted to us to accord with the thoughts we hold steadily in consciousness."

16 "As you begin to realize that God is lovingly in charge of your life, you may also understand that there is really nothing to fear."

17 "Love has the patience to endure the fault we cannot cure." J. Jelinek

18 "Every time we hold our tongue instead of returning the sharp retort, show patience for another's faults, show a little more love and kindness; we are helping to stockpile more of these peace-bringing qualities in the world." Constance Foster

19 "In 'Man's Search for Meaning', Victor Frankl tells of his experience in a Nazi concentration camp. He reflects on the irony that he never felt so free as he did during that dreadful period. How could that be true? Even though all obvious freedoms had been taken away from him and he was living in constant threat of sickness, torture, and death, he discovered a depth of freedom inside of himself that he had never before experienced. We are free spirits, and our minds are not bound to anything unless we think we are."

20 "Love is the vital essence that pervades and permeates, from the center to the circumference, the graduating circles of all thought and action. Love is the talisman of human weal and woe – the open sesame to every human soul." Elizabeth Cady Stanton, speech at tenth National Woman's Rights Convention

21 "There is no one without love to give."

22 "We always have a choice. We can let the garden of our life grow wild and unattended until it fills with weeds, or we can take up the proper tools and tend to our garden until we create a place of unimaginable loveliness."

23 "The Laws of Life work for the highest good of all."

24 "Just as a hologram is made up of numerous pixels – each one containing all of the information that can be found in the total image – so each person may be a tiny particle of life, containing all the data that is present in the sum of total existence."

25 "Love is the 'spiritual glue' that holds everything together."
