"Always be prepared to make a defence to any one who calls you to account for the hope that is in you, yet do it with gentleness and reverence; and keep your conscience clear, so that, when you are abused, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame." - 1 Peter 3:15-16

Ignorance is our First Enemy

Here's a 9 year old boy sharing what he had learned by his study.
Can you also share what you have learned?

We cannot give what we do not have. We cannot teach what we do not know. STUDY!

Thursday, March 26, 2009


If you are bored, it's because you can't get down to your real business, the real reason why you are here on earth.

Wanting to learn must be accompanied by a willingness to take instruction.

Make an appointment with yourself if you are searching for Truth that goes beyond appearances. Finding Truth like that takes time. Cancel your other appointments.

You can't search just some days. You have to search every waking moment. It's 'starting and stopping', 'starting and stopping' that's ruining you and your motor.

Study how to learn. That's the secret of being a scholar.

Just listening without knowing how to listen is self-defeating. That's why so many students, who are not scholars, feel defeated -- and blame society.

Learn to love learning better than anything.

Engrave this on your heart: "The Truth, the Whole Truth, and nothing but The Truth."

Have you ever thought - once or twice - that you've found Truth and then had it disappear?

That wasn't Truth. That was just infatuation.

Truth, like true love, is constant. Once you've found it, it can't lose you anymore than you can lose it.

From time to time, you will fall under the influence of a book or of a person or of a philosophy. Learn to take only what is true - and go onward, alone, unlabelled.

You must depart from all opinion if you would see - yours, too.

Truth can't grow where the ego does.

When you receive an illumination, don't make the mistake of thinking it has been granted to you alone.

Work hard at what the world leaves unlabored.

Learning is discipline. Forgo impatience. One must - even if it takes years.

The time you think you've given your greatest effort and can give no more is exactly when you must.

If you say you are searching for nothing but the Truth, be sure you mean that.

The truth about yourself, for instance - can you take that? (Do you really want to know?)

Much of truth is extremely painful...

The longest journey is the one we take trying to find exactly who we are.

Constantly command your mind to be uncluttered.

Proceed with purpose. Lacking that, proceed with the purpose of locating purpose.

Lukewarm looking will get you nothing.

Seek as one possesed of one goal only - to find.

But keep the search silent and secret. It will take all your energy.

The journey's always inward and we travel mostly blind. Remember, dark is a necessity - or what would light illumine?

No matter how hard you seek, don't look for compensation until the job is done.

"The Search" by Lucille Jane Plewe in her book "WayFinders".
[A bone will do for a dog,
and leavings from the table.
Until they find, searchers must live like dogs,
the best that they are able.]

"Thus saith the Lord. Stand ye on the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, which is the good way, and walk ye in it: and you shall find refreshment for your souls." Jeremias 6:16
