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

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

2 "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."

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

4 "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."

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

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

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

8 "Socrates believed in a divine principle, expressed through an inner voice that directs our actions along the path of morality. He taught us to explore our thinking and behaviors that are unworthy of us."

9 "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."

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

11 "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."

12 "Through the ages, the wise and thoughtful among us have said that there is good in everything and everyone if we just take the time to look for it."

13 "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."

14 "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."

15 "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."

16 "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."

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

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

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

20 "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."

21 "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."

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

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

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

25 "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
