Jesus, Buddha, Mohammad, Socrates: The True Religion of Love (Part 3)
Updated: Jan 7
The Koran (Noble Qur’an) was sent down in seven dialects, and in every one of its sentences, there is an outer and an inner meaning. – Islam (An Arabic speaking (Arabic literate) friend of mine told me that some words in the Koran(Noble Qur’an) have between 5 to 7 different meanings.)
Study the words, no doubt, but look behind them to the thought they indicate, and, having found it, throw the words away as chaff (peeling) or straw when you have sifted out the grain. – Hinduism
Let not scholars scrutinize the language of the wise too closely; the seers think more of the thought than of the words in which ‘tis caught. – Sufism
Judge Not (Do Not Judge)
Judging your neighbor (your fellow man(or anyone)) is a transgression of the Golden Rule and the Silver Rule. As Jesus said, "Judge not, that you be not judged." The Buddha said, "A day spent judging yourself is a painful day, a day spent judging others is a painful day, you don’t have to believe your judgments, they are just an old habit." Jesus also said, "As you judge, so will you be judged, and with the measure you mete, it will be measured to you." (Holy Bible - Matthew 7:1, and Holy Bible - Mark 4:24) “You’ll receive the same judgment you give. Whatever you deal out will be dealt out to you.” (Holy Bible - Matthew 7:2) After you die, you will have a life review in heaven where you will feel what it was like to be the people who interacted with you in your life. This time, instead of judging them, you will be judging yourself using the same criteria (or similar criteria) you used on them. “On the Day [Judgment Day] when every soul will be confronted with all the good it has done, and all the evil it has done…” “And God is full of kindness to those that serve Him.” (Noble Qur’an 3:30) So next time you are tempted to judge another, realize that you will be judging yourself in the same way. Finally, we should also be aware that, many times, the bad traits we see in others are what exists in us. Therefore, for example, some who lie don’t believe others, etc. Therefore, try not to judge yourself or others, instead seek to replace judgment with love.
Judge not, and you shall not be judged: condemn not, and you shall not be condemned: forgive, and you shall be forgiven. – Christianity
Judge not your neighbor [your fellow man – that is, anyone] until you are in his place. -- Judaism
Vengeance is mine, sayeth the Lord. -- Christianity
Judge not your neighbor. -- Buddhism
Follow that which is revealed to you, and persevere with patience until God shall judge; for He is the best judge. – Islam
“God will judge with Justice and Truth.” (Noble Qur’an 40:20)
Don’t judge a man before you have walked two moons in his moccasins. (Two moons = two months; moccasins = shoes). – Native American Proverb
As rain falls down equally on the just and on the unjust, do not burden your heart with judgments but rain your kindness down equally on all. – Buddha
“The Buddha acts like a cloud shedding its waters without distinction. He has the same compassionate sentiments for the high as for the low, for the wise as for the ignorant (foolish), for the noble-minded as well as for the immoral.” (“The Gospel of Buddha” LV.7)
“A man should not be judged by his fame, power, or money, but rather by how much love he gives to others.” ― Sandranil Biswas
“God himself does not propose to judge a man until the end of his days, why should you and I?” (Dr. Johnson as quoted in Dale Carnegie’s “How to Win Friends and Influence People”)
Wisdom is capable of bringing you peace and happiness here on Earth. All Godly knowledge and wisdom leads to love and righteousness as opposed to wickedness. “Truth(honesty) is universal and leads to justice and righteousness.” (“The Gospel of Buddha” II:15) “Those who wish for happiness, lead a life of righteousness.” (“The Gospel of Buddha” II:8) And so, if you follow the right path, you will get closer and closer to love. Your life will be easier and happier and you will truly be more successful, knowing what is important and what is not. “Perfect wisdom illumines a person’s understanding and righteousness.” (“The Gospel of Buddha” III:15) “…wisdom is the one thing needful. To neglect wisdom will lead to failure in life.” (“The Gospel of Buddha” XXV:26) The book of Proverbs in the Holy Bible contains much wisdom as does this book. (Especially Proverbs chapters 10 through 30 in the Holy Bible). Women, particularly, should read Proverbs chapter 31 of the Holy Bible verses 10 through 31.
This book contains much of the collective wisdom of mankind.
Wisdom is the application of knowledge and reason to the question of how to live life.
“We bestowed on him [Moses] wisdom and knowledge: for thus do we reward those who do good.” (Noble Qur’an 28:14)
“We are drowning in information, we are starving for wisdom.” – Tony Robbins
“The one who obtains wisdom loves life; the one who cherishes understanding will soon prosper.” (Holy Bible - Proverbs 19:8)
“…Do not seek the pomp and glitter of this life.” (Noble Qur’an 18:28)
“I say unto you that if you persist in your wickedness that your days shall not be prolonged in the land…” (Book of Mormon, Alma 9:18)
“People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.”
“It’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice.”
“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience, we are spiritual beings having a human experience.”
“As a man with eyes who carries a lamp sees all objects, so too with one who has heard the Moral Law. He will become perfectly wise.” (Buddha – Udanavarga 22.4)
“Wealth is an allurement of the life of this world: but the things that endure, good deeds, are best in the sight of your Lord, as rewards…” (Noble Qur’an 18:46)
“Religious wisdom lifts a man above the pleasures and pains of the world and gives him peace everlasting.” (“The Gospel of Buddha” LXXXIII.9)
“We gave him [John the Baptist] wisdom even as a youth.” (Noble Qur’an 19:12)
“…guide you in wisdom’s paths that you may be blessed, prospered, and preserved…” (Book of Mormon, Mosiah 2:36)
“We had already given the people of Abraham the Book and wisdom, and conferred upon them a great kingdom.” – (Noble Qur’an 4:54)
“How to lead a life of righteousness… how to exercise honesty and justice… They form a brotherhood of kindness and charity.” (“The Gospel of Buddha” XVII.15)
Let yourself “attain the highest good in the ways of wisdom.” (“The Gospel of Buddha” LIX.15)
“Swerve not from the path of justice and righteousness and you will outshine the royal glory of kings and queens on the throne.” (“The Gospel of Buddha” LXXVI.8)
“It is the glory of a wise man to overlook a slight or an offence [instead of getting offended].” (Holy Bible - Proverbs 19:11)
Do not be greedy
Do not focus too much on material wealth. Jesus spoke about and described the “deceitfulness of wealth”(Holy Bible – Matthew 13:22 and Holy Bible – Mark 4:19). “You cannot serve both God and money.” (Holy Bible - Matthew 6:24) Wealth is the material possessions of this world. It is a mistake to focus on wealth rather than on the things of the spirit. It’s never a good idea to value money or power more than people. That philosophy leads to self-destruction. “You men of Galilee, lay not up treasures for yourselves in the vaults of Earth; accumulated wealth will blight your soul.” “Let us live then most happily; let us feed on joy, like the radiant ‘gods’.” (Buddha – Dhammapada 15.4) Enlightened self-interest, as Plato put it, is the desire to help others because you realize when you do unto others, you are doing unto God (unto “the good”) and unto yourself. Enlightened self-interest is a philosophy in ethics which states that persons who act to further the interests of others ultimately serve their own self-interest. If you seek the righteousness of God, seeking to help yourself and others spiritually, God will take care of your financial/material needs. "Seek first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things(food, clothing) shall be added unto you." – Christianity
Let me set this straight, poverty is horrible. But, wealth does not give much more happiness than a middle-class lifestyle. For example, people who win the lottery are, generally, less happy one year after they won it than they were before they won. One rich man once said, “The most magical thing about being a millionaire is the word ‘millionaire’”.
“You cannot serve both God and money.” – (Jesus Christ, Holy Bible - Matthew 6:24)
“Love is the fruit of sacrifice. Wealth is the fruit of generosity.” (Living the Wisdom of the Tao, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer)
“For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.” (Holy Bible - 1st Timothy 6:10)
“The greedy do not go to heaven, the foolish do not praise charity. The wise one, however, rejoicing in charity becomes thereby happy in the beyond (hereafter - the afterlife).” (Buddha – Dhammapada 13:11)
“Love people, use things – not the other way around.” (Steven K. Scott - A Millionaire’s Notebook)
“Riches make many people greedy, and so are like caravans heading down the road to hell. Any possession that increases the sin of selfishness or does nothing to confirm one’s wish to renounce what one has is nothing but a drawback in disguise.” (Buddha – Jatakamala 5.5 & 15)
“Do not suppose, because it has been spoken concerning restoration, that you shall be restored from sin to happiness. Behold, I say unto you, wickedness never was happiness.” (Book of Mormon, Alma 41:10)
“Seek first the kingdom of the soul, the righteousness of God, the good of men, and murmur not; God will protect, and feed, and clothe.” (The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ 99:30)
“[Some men] are violent in their love of wealth.” (Noble Qur’an 100:8)
“Joy comes not through possessions or ownership but through a wise and loving heart.” – Buddhism
“Riches are not from abundance of worldly goods but from a contented mind.” (“The Wisdom of Mohammad / The Sayings of Mohammad”, Saying #383)
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on Earth, where moth and rust consume and where thieves break in and steal; but store up for yourselves treasures in heaven [through good deeds], where neither moth nor rust consume and where thieves do not break in and steal.” (Jesus, Holy Bible - Matthew 6:19-20)
“One is the way to gain, the other is the way to Nirvana (Nibbana - Bliss/heavenliness); knowing this fact, students of the Buddha should not take pleasure in being honored, but, rather, should practice detachment.” – (Dhammapada 5.16)
“Once you detach from selfish desire involving people and/or property, you will attain peace.” -- Buddhism
“It is difficult, for a man laden with riches, to climb the steep path that leads to bliss.” (“The Wisdom of Mohammad / The Sayings of Mohammad”, Saying #384)
“Wealth, properly employed, is a blessing, and a man may lawfully endeavor to increase it by honest (and generous) means.” (“The Wisdom of Mohammad / The Sayings of Mohammad”, Saying #386)
A Bedouin came to the Prophet, grabbed the stirrup of his camel, and said: “O the messenger of God! Teach me something to go to heaven with it.” Prophet (Mohammad) said: “As you would have people do to you, do so also to them; and what you dislike to be done to you, don't do to them. Now let the stirrup go!” – Islam
Intellectual matters and ideas:
While in intellectual matters and theological concepts and ideas, Buddhism, Islam, Christianity and the other religions certainly differ, in the ethics, morals, heart-qualities, and the way of life recommended (the way they say to live), they are very similar. The different religions have common values (many of the different religions teach the same principles). For example, in Islam, there are the teachings of God (in the Noble Qur’an) and the principle of divine unity (and Oneness of God and mankind). In Buddhism, there is an emphasis on meditation and letting go of all selfish attachments and selfish desires. Christians believe in Jesus, Jesus’ way of life, his love, his teachings, and his forgiveness. But, all of these religions teach kindness, compassion, and love for others above all else.
“While it is true that there are discrepancies between the teachings of the great Prophets (Moses, Buddha, Zoroaster, Confucius, Christ, Mohammad, Lao-Tsu, and Bahá’u’lláh), all held to basic moral and spiritual values (also taught in this book). So we would expect unity there [and, indeed, we find it.]” – Baha’i teacher
The Theory of Atlantis (Plato’s Theory of Atlantis)
Plato theorized the existence of an ancient, technologically advanced civilization (existing beyond the pillars of Heracles - the straits of Gibraltar) that was destroyed by an environmental cataclysm. He gained this information from the masters in the ancient schools of ancient Egypt. This civilization was called ‘Atlantis’. There were two main groups in Atlantis: The Children of the Law of One (who sought to care for others) and the Sons of Belial who were unethical and immoral (from Edgar Cayce(from Edgar Cayce on Atlantis), Plato (from Timaeus and Critias), and Jon Peniel- author of “The Children of the Law of One and The Lost Teachings of Atlantis”). Atlantis was a technologically advanced society/civilization that existed before Noah’s flood (the Great Flood). (Holy Bible - Noah’s flood – Genesis 6:17) It was destroyed by that cataclysm. The Holy Bible describes the people living before Noah’s flood (the Great Flood) as being immoral(Holy Bible - Genesis 6:5). Noah’s flood(the Great Flood) was the baptism of the Earth.
One of the greatest engineers of all time was Nikola Tesla. Among other things, he invented A/C (alternating current) electricity. Alternating current is when you plug something into the socket on the wall. It has been theorized that Tesla was a reincarnated Atlantian scientist. He also did the groundwork for Edison and Marconi (who are given the credit for some of Tesla’s work (such as the groundwork for creating the Radio)). Tesla also invented an induction motor. In Atlantis, scientists/engineers worked with two kinds of energy-- these were called light-side energy (such as electricity) and night-side energy (such as nuclear power). (from Edgar Cayce, Edgar Cayce on Atlantis) “Tesla invented electrical generators, FM radio, spark plugs, and fluorescent lights. He had a photographic memory and did advanced calculus and physics equations in his head.” (Nigel Cawthorne, Tesla, The Life and Times of an Electric Messiah) Tesla also designed a propulsion system for wingless aircraft (‘flying saucers’). Unfortunately, like many in Atlantis, Tesla also did unethical work such as creating the world’s first radio-guided torpedo for the U.S. Navy (in the 1920’s!).
Technological Advancement of Hitler’s Germany
The amount of technological advancement that Hitler was able to bring about in one generation was staggering & unprecedented. For example, about 85% of the computers in the world today are descended from the computer architecture of the IBM PC (IBM Personal Computer – intel 80X86 microprocessors and descendants). Early computers were developed in conjunction with IBM and German (‘Nazi’) engineers / computer scientists. The Nazis used what today is called I.T. (Information Technology) to catalogue war information and keep track of those being murdered in the concentration death camps.
Hitler represented the ultimate in and the apex of Nationalism and political cult of personality. He would go up in front of audiences and literally have a panic attack in front of them while bearing his heart.
MK Ultra was part of the program to import to the U.S. German (Nazi) Rocket scientists in the years following World War II to help design ICBMs (Inter-Continental Ballistic Missiles) – missiles capable of delivering/sending a nuclear weapon to any part of the world. Nuclear weapons are how God ensured that there would be no (“hot”) war between the U.S. and the former Soviet Union (U.S.S.R.) or any more world wars. No modern human invention has saved as many lives as the nuclear (or atomic) weapon. Without nuclear weapons, we would surely have had World War III by now.
The Nazi swastika was actually a reverse of the original ancient swastika used in Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism. In Buddhism, it was shown as the Buddha’s “third eye” (forehead chakra) and on the ground wherever Buddha stepped. The original swastika stood for righteousness and goodness. The Nazis reversed the swastika. The reverse right-facing Nazi swastika stands for selfishness, evil, and personal power.
German engineers at Volkswagen (“Folk’s wagon” (‘Volk’ means more than ‘folk’ but I use a transliteration) – “People’s car”) designed some of the best cars for their time such as the Volkswagen Beetle.
Ideas are powerful things. During the years preceding and during World War II, 14 million people were put to death because of a racial theory (Jews, gays, gypsies, Communists, the mentally ill – anyone Hitler considered ‘inferior’ and ‘undesirable’ – The “Final Solution”).
Hitler gained power through his NSM (National Socialist Movement – the Nazi movement). Germany was a pretty depressed place during the 1920’s and 1930’s. There were many depressed/down in the dumps men who had fought in the Great War (World War I). The economy was also depressed. Hitler appealed to these men by telling them that they deserved better, and, thus, attracted them to the Nazi movement. He said “You are weak, follow and join me, and you will be strong.” Hitler gave the Germans who heard his speeches a great degree of personal joy (like many of us get today from Rock music). Generally, historically, most revolutions were left-wing revolutions. Generally, the Left views religion and churches as an opiate of the masses (From Karl Marx). It views schools as centers of indoctrination, obedience, and conformity, Corporations as greedy and ‘dog eat dog’, police and military as violent tools of oppression. The left also cares a lot for the poor. The Left believes (like Jesus, Buddha, and Mohammad) that society needs to help (is responsible for helping) the poorest of the poor. Part of Hitler’s genius was in forging a right-wing dictatorship. Schools, Military, Police, churches, unions, Hitler youth (scouts), and corporations were all integrated and served to empower Hitler. (The One leader/ The ‘Fuhrer’) Some of the capitalists/German industrialists (and, also, bankers like the Rothschilds) had an attitude of: Let Hitler do his little ‘Song and Dance’ for the crowds/people. As long as he’s against the left-wing unions and the Marxists and he lets us make good profits, that’s all that matters. Once the people working in their organizations had more of an allegiance to Hitler than to them, they were in trouble. In the end, they found themselves holding a lion by the tail.
Don’t confuse the Democrat party or the corporate media with the Left. The Democrats are a “centrist” pro-corporate pro-big business (in favor of those at the top of the corporate hierarchy) party as are the Republicans.
Some examples of the Left are the 1960’s peace movement, the Arab spring, the Tienanmen demonstrations, the George Floyd protests, the Hong Kong protests, the civil rights movement, and Noam Chomsky. The left also includes Unionized workers who fought for a 2-day weekend and Social Security.
If there are no community-building efforts such as unions, churches, or social activism, for example, some people (especially young men) may turn to bad things such as extreme right-wing racism, Satanism, and anti-semitism. Some, in inner cities, may turn to gang activity. Others may turn to drugs. We must offer positive pro-social alternatives so that people won’t feel alienated.
Skull & Bones, the Rothschilds, the Bushes, Hitler, and Armageddon
Some of those who were spiritually sensitive sensed that God preferred Bush over Gore in the 2000 Presidential election. Despite being a member of the Satanic Skull & Bones fraternity (as depicted in the Hollywood Movie “The Skulls”) and living a life of drugs and alcohol, George W. Bush had had a genuine born-again experience with Jesus changing his heart. Unfortunately, after Bush was elected, he started two unethical wars (Iraq and Afghanistan). All he needed to do was pray to God and ask God, “Should I start these wars?” The answer would have been an emphatic “No!” Bush then could have confronted Cheney and Rumsfeld and whomever else and said “Look, I know you want to go to war, but God told me not to.” He did not do that, and tragedies (including the creation of ISIS, Al-Qaeda, and the Taliban and the destabilization of the Middle East with many innocents dead) ensued. Think of how little a difference in your life the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have made. Now compare that with soldiers who lost their limbs – hands, arms, feet, and legs in the wars. Some lost their lives - (not to mention the Iraqis and Afghans – both military and civilian (some innocent) who lost their lives or their loved ones like family and friends – to the wars). This doesn’t mean that George W. Bush is a bad man or that he won’t make it to heaven, but he did disappoint God (grieve the holy spirit).
George W. Bush’s father, brother, and grandfather were also members of the Satanic (“Illuminati” – “Illuminated ones” -- Illuminated to “higher knowledge”) Skull and Bones society. Researchers have estimated that Skull & Bones members (and Eastern establishment families) own and run about 70 to 80% of the Investment Banks on Wall Street. Skull & Bones fraternity members (“Bonesmen”) are taught certain techniques such as visualization for getting what they want. They are funneled into top positions in Wall Street through freemasonry(and other secret societies -- and many of them are high level freemasons (and plan their agenda for the world in the Builderberg meetings)). In the 1930’s, Skull and Bones and its members (such as George W. Bush’s grandfather- Senator Prescott Bush) supported Adolf Hitler during his rise to power. They didn’t have faith in the stock market because of the 1929 Stock market collapse. Hitler was a Rothschild (The Rothschilds are the wealthiest family in the world – more wealthy than Bill Gates and the Waltons- “Rothschild” means “Child of wealth” or ‘Red Shield’ (in the book of Revelation, Jesus is depicted as returning(in Red color) to Earth to win the war of Armageddon (‘Har Mageddon’ (combination of Mountain of Megiddo and Shield (in Hebrew “Maggen”) in Israel) - in Red Color)). ‘Apocalypse’ is the ultimate war between good (in Red color) and evil (in black color). Traditionally (Biblically), if you want to invade Israel successfully, you attack from the North (e.g. Assyria and Babylon in the Biblical texts). If Mt. Megiddo stands, Israel can be defended. Jesus will return to save Israel.) Hitler tested high in Merovingian blood (holy blood – blood of Jesus Christ, Mary Magdalene, and others) which determines the hierarchy in some of these Satanic circles. They saw Hitler as a kind of “Savior” from the depression, and Wall Street helped fund Hitler’s military war machine build-up. Walt Disney even created a cartoon called “Nazi Supermen are our Friends”. There are also Satanic organizations with us today or not that long ago such as the “Council on Foreign Relations”, “The Trilateral Commission”, “MK Ultra” (Mind Control), and “Co-intel-pro” (“Counter intelligence project”), one of whose roles was to take on, infiltrate, and bring down feminist organizations and race-based organizations such as the “Black Panthers”. George H. W. Bush (father Bush) was a war hero whose plane was shot down in the Pacific Theater in World War II (while Bush was praised for his heroism, there were many unsung war heroes in the World War II generation).
Most of the Eastern Establishment and other illuminati families are genetically “reptilian” in nature. (from David Icke and Jon Peniel) Reptiles and mammals differ in nature. For an excellent example of Reptilian fascism, watch the excellent NBC hit miniseries “V” (my rating: 10 out of 10). Not all reptilians are bad, there are many good ones as well. The reptilian nature is part of the “sin” nature. Reptiles are hierarchical and territorial in nature. Their genetics are also most compatible with demons and demonic activity. They practice repetitive rituals. Mammals (like Cats and dogs, and cows and horses) are, generally, more warm-hearted and loving than Reptiles. Men have both natures within. Jesus (Christianity), Islam, and Buddhism call upon us to be even more warm-hearted, loving, and compassionate than even most mammals. The 12 illuminati families around the world correspond to the 12 tribes of Israel. The Rothschilds, for example, are descendants of Judah – Jews like me or Jesus. The Rockefellers are descendants of Benjamin (Benjaminites, like Saint Paul). In the Holy Bible - Judah takes care of Benjamin (Holy Bible, Genesis 44:8-34).
Many of the people in the “Eastern Establishment families” (and other top illuminati people in England and Germany, for example) are what you would call “emotionally screwed-up”. For example, some of them molest children (even their own). But, we shouldn’t judge them too harshly, because the reason many of them do this is that they were molested themselves when they were young. David Icke has written more about the illuminati than anyone else.
If you would like to read about how U.S. military operations hurt innocent people, read Noam Chomsky. I want to warn you, reading these will not make you “feel good”.
The Earth has an aura surrounding it of roughly 10,000 volts. This energy field is the same one that makes a compass point North. In Atlantis, the Sons of Belial dug/bored holes in the Earth with lasers and used the Earth’s gross energy for power (like the ‘Blue Hole of Belize’). The Children of the Law of One built pyramids (such as the one at Giza – from “The Giza Power Plant : Technologies of Ancient Egypt” by Christopher Dunn) that harmlessly collected the Earth’s auric energy(this is a benevolent form of energy that can power everything without environmental cost or damage.) The Children of the Law of One had wingless aircraft (airships) that could alter the molecular density of the rocks/blocks used to build the pyramids and make the rocks/blocks float in mid-air.
The Earth is hollow with a ‘ball’ of inner light in the center – the “inner sun”. There are also ley lines on the surface of the Earth – the Earth’s “power grid”. (One of the people who knows most about the Earth is the Native American elder Red Elk – you can Google ‘Red Elk’ to find out more.)
The 12 illuminati families are descended from the 12 tribes of Israel. Jews are only 1/12th of the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob(Israelites). Jews are the descendants of Judah, the son of Jacob. The other 11 tribes still exist from the other sons of Jacob and some British, French, Germans, and others (both Catholics and Protestants) are Israelites as well.
“Whether you call it charity or love, the message of God and awakening is the same.” (Betty Eadie, “The Awakening Heart: My Continuing Journey to Love”, p. 206)
We are in a period of a great spiritual awakening - the greatest spiritual awakening thus far in the history of mankind. More and more people will become aware of the spiritual side of their lives—including spiritual abilities such as psychic ability. Over the coming years, more and more people will be awakened. This is what the Elders want, and it is what God wants. (The Elders/Masters/Angels are spiritual beings who help do God’s will.)
Another sin/“Het”/“Chet”/illusion/distraction/delusion is lust. Jesus described lust as looking (staring) at a member of the opposite sex (or the same sex) to lust after them (Holy Bible - Matthew 5:28). Like anger, after one engages in lust, one’s freedom to stop is diminished. Lust can be destructive to the person engaging in it just like hate. The two sometimes go together. At times, lust can also hurt the person being lusted after if possessiveness and anger are involved.
“[One] must free his soul from covetousness and lust.” (“The Gospel of Buddha” VII.13)
“The world is full of evil and sorrow because it is full of lust.” (“The Gospel of Buddha” XII.5)
“Avoid the evil of lust.” (“The Gospel of Buddha” LXVI.4)
“Say to the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty … and say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty.” (Noble Qur’an 24:30-31)
“If you sin not then you are free; but if you sin in thought, or word, or deed, then you are slaves and nothing but truth can set you free; if you are free through Christ, then you are free indeed.” (The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ 135:23)
“Everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin.” (Holy Bible - John 8:34)
“One does not become pure by washing, as do the multitudes of mortals in this world; he who casts away every sin, great and small, he is a Brahmin who has cast off sin.” (Buddha – Udanavarga 33:13)
“When the fire of lust is gone out, when the fires of hatred and delusion are gone out, when the troubles of mind and all other evils are ceased, then Nirvana (Bliss/heavenliness) is gained!”
(“The Gospel of Buddha” VI.21)
“He whose lusts have been destroyed, who is free from arrogance… is subdued, perfectly happy, and of a firm mind.” (“The Gospel of Buddha” LIX.6)
“There are four parts to meditation- the first is that you must free your mind of lust, greed, and other selfish desires. The second is a tranquility of mind full of joy and gladness. The third is taking delight in spiritual things. The fourth and final part is a state of purity and peace in which the mind embraces gladness and is above all grief.” (“The Gospel of Buddha” LX.34)
Buddha said “There are four means by which goodness is acquired: 1. Prevent bad qualities from arising. 2. Put away bad qualities (such as bad thoughts) that have already arisen. 3. Produce goodness that has not yet come to exist. 4. And, finally, increase the goodness which already exists. Search with sincerity. And, in the end, you will find the truth.” (“The Gospel of Buddha” LX.37)
Respect for the Elderly
The Holy Bible says to show respect to the elderly. It says to stand up in honor and respect when an elderly person enters the room. (Holy Bible - Leviticus 19:32)
“To every young person who honors the old, on account of their age, may God appoint those who shall honor him in his later years.” (“The Wisdom of Mohammad / The Sayings of Mohammad”, Saying #18)
“Verily, to honor an old man is to show respect to God.” (“The Wisdom of Mohammad / The Sayings of Mohammad”, Saying #19)
“Be respectful and hospitable to your teachers and superiors.” (“The Gospel of Buddha” XXXVIII.5)
Alms, called Zakat in Islam, is one of the key ways to progress in happiness and become blessed. Alms is charity – the giving of your money to the poor or to other good causes. “Assist the poor, and help the weak; do harm to none, and do not covet what is not yours.” (The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ 26:14) “…feed the poor…” (Noble Qur’an 2:196) When giving money, Jesus said not to let anyone else know about it, or God won’t reward you as much for giving (Holy Bible - Matthew 6:2 – 4). On the other hand, if you give in secret without letting anyone else know about it, God (your Heavenly Father) will reward you for it openly (Holy Bible – Matthew 6:4). Similarly, Jesus and the Prophet Mohammad both said, the best form of giving is when the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand does. (Holy Bible - Matthew 6:3) “In giving alms, do not let the right hand know the secret of the left.” (The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ 94:22) “If you disclose (acts of) charity, even so it is well, but if you conceal them, and make them reach those (really) in need, that is best for you.” (Noble Qur’an 2:171) The more of one’s income one gives to the poor or charity and/or to other good causes, the better. Strive to give at least 10% (the first 10%) to the poor/charity (in other words, “loan to God” – and God repays his loans with generous interest). You may want to give the next 10% to yourself: saving and investing. And, finally, live on the 80% that is left over. Generally, you will find that the 90% left after you tithe(give 10%) will go further than the 100% without giving.

There is no downside to tithing. You give to help others/the poor, and God pays you back more.
You should care about other people’s things.
There’s a saying: “Put your money where your mouth is.” I believe you should “put your money where your faith is.”
“If you wish to be perfect, go, sell your possessions, and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven.” (Jesus – Holy Bible - Matthew 19:21 and Holy Bible – Luke 12:33)

“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 7 Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. 9 As it is written:
“They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor;
their righteousness endures forever.”” (Holy Bible, 2nd Corinthians 9:6-8)
Bahá’u’lláh counsels us with the following words: “Be generous in prosperity, and thankful in adversity. Be worthy of the trust of your neighbor, and look upon him with a bright and friendly face. Be a treasure to the poor, an admonisher to the rich, an answerer to the cry of the needy, a preserver of the sanctity of thy pledge. Be fair in thy judgment, and guarded in thy speech. Be unjust to no man, and show all meekness to all men. Be as a lamp unto them that walk in darkness, a joy to the sorrowful, a sea for the thirsty, a haven for the distressed, an upholder and defender of the victim of oppression. Let integrity and uprightness distinguish all thine acts. Be a home for the stranger, a balm to the suffering, a tower of strength for the fugitive. Be eyes to the blind, and a guiding light unto the feet of the erring. Be an ornament to the countenance of truth, a crown to the brow of fidelity, a pillar of the temple of righteousness, a breath of life to the body of mankind, an ensign of the hosts of justice, a luminary above the horizon of virtue, a dew to the soil of the human heart, an ark on the ocean of knowledge, a sun in the heaven of bounty, a gem on the diadem of wisdom, a shining light in the firmament of thy generation, a fruit upon the tree of humility.”

According to the richest man who ever lived, “King Solomon”, in the book of Proverbs, it says that two ways to obtain wealth are generosity and diligence. Generosity is giving to those who need and/or who ask you for something that you have. Also, “If anyone takes something that belongs to you, do not demand it back.” (Holy Bible - Luke 6:30) Diligence is working hard and working smart. Honesty, integrity, and fairness in business dealings and relationships are also very important for success in business.

Don’t be a hypocrite
We get the word “hypocrite” from the King James Bible. Being a hypocrite means judging yourself and others with a different measure. That is, condemning others and maintaining your own innocence when you are, in fact, also guilty. Being a hypocrite can also mean being someone who pretends or claims to be a believer but really is not. Or somebody who doesn’t live what he or she preaches—doesn’t walk their talk. The Noble Qur’an also speaks of and warns of the dangers of hypocrisy – and says that a significant portion/fraction of men in the world are hypocrites. Also, you can read Matthew 7:5 of Jesus in the Holy Bible (on hypocrisy).
