Those who live without knowledge of the laws of Body, Mind, and Soul may be compared to a ship without a rudder. They are tossed about on the great sea of life by detrimental thoughts and actions that they allow to affect them due to a lack of understanding. -Fleet #raysofthedawn There is a study group tonight at 7:30 to learn more about these laws. 4027 Judah SF CA It is free, you are invited!
Pain appears to be an armed and vindictive enemy, but it is really a friend in disguise. If we look beneath it's mask and recognize and except it, it takes us by the hand and gently leads us back from the thorny thicket through which we were plunging under the command of passion, ignorance, or weakness. -Fleet #raysofthedawn
Iron ore may think itself senselessly tortured in the furnace, but as the tempered steel blade looks back it knows better. You have had a hard time, but it is all for a good purpose. -Rampa
Human beings, endowed with reason and the power of abstract thought, employ faith as a substitute for exact knowledge in our efforts to interpret the meaning and value of life. We penetrate beneath the surface of things, looking beyond the facts of immediate experience. In the absence of tangible evidence, faith must supply the inspiration encourage to go ahead. -Fleet #raysofthedawn
We must have the bad in order to appreciate the good. Real happiness comes to us through struggling with the difficult and overcoming it. -Fleet
Within each of us is a Spiritual force the directs certain activities: digestion, breathing, rate of heartbeat, elimination. These functions do not come under jurisdiction of the conscious mind and therefore should not be interfered with. When the conscious mind constantly interferes, these activities begin to function abnormally-or they cease to function, according to the nature or degree of interference. The result is various bodily and mental disorders. -Fleet Surrendering your attempts to control things that are beyond our conscious mental capabilities is a great health promoting skill to develop.

If another person has harmed us and we feel justified in hating them, let us first analyze the situation. We will recognize that it is the animal traits displayed and not the individual that we despise. If we could just penetrate beneath the surface, we would find the same life power within the offensive person that is present in everyone. The only difference is that such an individual is still enslaved by their animal nature. Let us not stoop to their low plane by retaliating with like destructive traits, but rather let us seek to show them - through love and understanding - the lighted path. Remember that the penalty for hatred is hate with all its accompanying evils. And the reward for love is love with all its ennobling attributes. -Fleet
Every person possesses both good and bad qualities, and we make the CHOICE to recognize either of these. The prevailing tendency, however, is to ignore others' admirable traits and instead magnify their shortcomings. But by natural law, whatever measure we use on others will also be used on us. We should closely analyze this statement before indulging in discordant thoughts or idle talk about a person's character or behavior. Gossip is another insidious habit, as difficult to check as it is destructive, and it should be dealt with severely, whenever it interferes. -Fleet #raysofthedawn It feels good to have choice.
The path of least resistance is for us to go through life responding to every negative vibration or act, with equally as crude or as cruel vibrations. But that is the coward's way. To recognize the source of evils, and to overcome them by positive thoughts, words, and acts - this is the motive and essence of kindness. -Fleet #raysofthedawn Come think about this stuff every Thursday at 7:15 pm at my office. Beam club. It is free, you are invited!
We indulge in COUNTERFEIT LOVE when our love is confined only to certain individuals or groups; when it's colored by our tastes, opinions, and prejudices; when it is restricted by custom, belief, social status, nationality. People have always thought of love as something we can express or repress at will. This we classify and segregate people according to our likes and dislikes. We show kindness and consideration to our intimates, but to strangers we are cold and indifferent. We are taught to love our country, our religion, our way of thinking and living, while those who differ from us in nationality, in religious training, in custom and point of view become victims of our disdained and bitter aversion. -Fleet #raysofthedawn He wrote this in 1931

Miracles in healing always result when the one to be healed comes into harmony with nature by applying the physical, mental and spiritual laws.

It is only natural that we have individual preferences, but we should not become obsessed with our own ideas and opinions. Everyone is traveling the Path, each seeking their highest good according to their own understanding. No one is perfect. All of us have our limitations. Yet we all struggle onward, and some day each of us in our own way will attain our goal. -FLEET
Take a trip beyond fear, worry and concern! Beyond cares lies our great Infinite Possibility. -Bill Mckeown
