Growing Up

Universal Truths

  • Love your neighbor as yourself
  • To thine own self be true
  • There is no freedom without responsibility
  • Do onto others as you would have them do onto you
  • Love conquers all

In the school of life we encounter many teachers and opportunities to learn and grow. This is true for all human beings. The universal truths above are expressed by and taught by the greatest thinker mankind has ever known, Jesus Christ, Lao-Tsu, Mohammad, Buddah, Gurdjieff, Krishnamurti, and Martin Luther King to name a few. In all religions, these universal truths are among the top beliefs.

They are familiar to most of us, but not all of us live our lives according to the beliefs. Easy to say and hard to do. All your life you have heard people say these truths but have you applied them to your life? Learning in your inner most soul is the challenging path to real growth and balance.

We also learn from others in our lives, family members, teachers, friends and enemies. Almost every encounter we have is another opportunity to learn more about our self. They are like mirrors reflecting back to us who we are and what we do and how it impacts others.

Using these universal truths as guidelines, you can learn and practice living your life from a deeper inner place connected to the universal wisdom. If we would all practice living our lives this way then and only then, can we transform the planet and live in peaceful co-existence with our fellow human beings.
