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

1 "Love, founded on truth and not on someone's mood, knows by its own fires of devotion how to make calamities serve a useful purpose."

2 "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

3 "The true universal, 'higher' self within us is an individualized center of God-consciousness."

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

5 "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

6 "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."

7 "When we recognize our roots in the human family, we no longer feel a need to stand in judgment of others. Judgment only condemns and separates people. It places one person or group against another, whereas compassion and empathy can bring people together and promote clearer communication. 'I care about you and I want to support you' is the clear message."

8 "Without the Divine Being, I cannot succeed. With that assistance, I cannot fail." Abraham Lincoln

9 "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."

10 "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

11 "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."

12 "It is better to light a single candle than to curse the darkness." Motto of the Christophers

13 "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."

14 "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."

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

16 "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!"

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

18 "There is in reality one Mind….This Mind is the life, intelligence, power, and creativity in the entire universe."

19 "You can begin now to understand that people on 'the other side' of the world are just like you and me – they only want to be free to be happy and useful."

20 "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."

21 "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!"

22 "It is important to rise to the place where we are able to see the perfect image and likeness of God in all people."

23 "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."

24 "There is no such thing as a problem without a gift for you in its hands."

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