Words to live by

Some Eastern religions have called the correspondence between who you are and what you can make happen or what will happen karma. And Jesus said it this way:

Do not judge, and you will not be judged,
Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned,
Grant pardon, and you will be pardoned,
Give, and there will be gifts for you….
The amount you measure out is the amount you will be given back
                                                              –Luke 6:36-38

Reality: What you see is what you get. What you seek is also what you get

If you want others to be more loving, choose to love first.
If you want a reconciled outer world, reconcile your own inner world.
If you are working for peace out there, create it inside as well.
If you wish to find some outer stillness, find it within yourself.
If you want to find God, then honor God within you, and you will always see God far beyond you, also.
For it is only God in you who knows where and how to look for God. By ourselves, we are fairly blind.

What you see is what you get. What you seek is also what you get. (Richard Rorh’s  translation of Matthew 7:7-8)
