MAN SAYS: New Spirituality Network's "A New Way to Look at Your Day" for May 15, 2007 [an email newsletter]
Do not accept what you hear by report, do not accept tradition, do not accept a statement because it is found in our books, nor because it is in accord with your own belief, nor because it is the saying of your teacher.
Be lamps unto yourselves.
The Buddha (563?-483? B.C.)
Indian philosopher and founder of Buddhism
Spoken to his disciples on his deathbed
There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death (Proverbs:16:25).
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths (Proverbs:3:5-6).
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path (Psalm:119:105)
