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

1 "In our uniqueness and diversity there is a deep unifying, underlying unity that moves in and through all people."

2 "We are a part of the wholeness of creation. We do not walk our path of life alone. The whole universe walks with us, and we, as a human race, are coming to a greater realization that we are all 'one' in spirit."

3 "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."

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

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

6 "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."

7 "Shakespeare wrote, 'There is a destiny that will shape our end, rough hew it how we will.' This statement seems to mean that there may be an ultimate goal, or a divine plan, established for each person who comes into this world."

8 "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

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

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

11 "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!"

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

13 "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."

14 "To be a happy and useful person, it is important to understand and practice the Laws of Life. These laws are simply the set of rules by which we should live. They come from a vast array of sources – the major Scriptures of the world; various schools of philosophical thought, both ancient and modern; storytellers, such as Aesop; scientists, such as Isaac Newton; and from various artists and historians – to name a few."

15 "Look around you. Find an avenue where you can offer the gift of yourself."

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

17 "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."

18 "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!"

19 "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."

20 "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."

21 "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."

22 "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

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

24 "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."

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