Buddha Says.............

Neither fire nor wind, birth nor death can erase our good deeds.

Words have the power to both destroy and heal. When words are both true and kind, they can change our world.

Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.

Friendship is the only cure for hatred, the only guarantee of peace

Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

I love quotes from Buddha, so I have interspersed them with photographs of the Buddhas around my home, all except the first photo - this Buddha lives in a garden centre because it is about 7ft tall!
My knee
Friday 20th April
Doing really well I have tried a couple of steps without the aid of a crutch. It doesn't hurt but it doesn't feel safe yet. I need to do a lot more exercise to build up the muscles. My lovely friend Helen came yesterday and gave me another Reflexology treatment - that has helped!

Oh that's wonderful, unfortunately I can't understand what you're saying apart from Aloha - shame, as I'm sure it's something really nice.

Akelamalu said...

Your link only take me to your profile and not your blog pages?

What an honor it is to visit your sacred space!

I feel the most loving, kind, and sincere energy here. I feel blessed, just having visited!

Your post is so beautiful. I collect Buddha statues too. The quotes you selected were very wise indeed.

I especially loved the one about WORDS. That's why I think blogging is such a powerful tool. If we choose are words with care....we can GRACE those who visit our

The other one I loved, was the one about having something said, and believing it - ONLY if it feels true within your own heart.

Thank you for giving of yourself through this space. You heal, just with your presence.

I will stop by often.

And thank you!

Be well,

What a wonderful collection of Buddha's.
Love the quotes with this post.
I am studying a bit about Buddhism these days. Thanks for sharing this, very inspiring.
Keep up the good work on the knee.

Akelamalu said...

I can't resist Buddhas they are so peaceful looking, though I haven't studied Buddhism.

CS said...

I like both the quoted and he photos of all your Buddhas. I have a few around myself, and Buddhist Thought for the Day on my google homepage.

Akelamalu said...

Thankyou, I'm glad you like them. I have Brahma Kumaris thought for today - not disimilar. :)

Annelisa said...

Oh, excellent quotes! I shall come back to these again! I have only one buddha - and it supposedly glows in the dark... though I've never caught it doing that! :-)
