The colors of these wall hangings have been updated for 2007 / 2008 and are a little bit different than the photos above. They now have a red Endless Knot emblem printed in the corners on the front. We will try to get some revised photos posted on our Web site soon.
Never Give Up:
Never give up;
No matter what is going on
Never give up.
Develop the heart;
Too much energy in your country
Is spent developing the mind,
Instead of the heart.
Develop the heart.
Not just with your friends,
But with everyone.
Work for peace;
In your heart,
And in the world.
Work for peace.
And I say again,
Never give up.
No matter what is going on around you,
Never give up.
The Paradox of Our Age:
We have bigger houses but smaller families;
more conveniences, but less time;
We have more degrees, but less sense;
more knowledge, but less judgement;
more experts, but more problems;
more medicines, but less healthiness;
We've been all the way to the moon and back,
but have trouble crossing the street to meet
the new neighbour.
We built more computers to hold more
information to produce more copies than ever,
but have less communication;
We have become long on quantity,
but short on quality.
These are times of fast foods
but slow digestion;
Tall man but short character;
Steep profits but shallow relationships.
It's a time when there is much in the window,
but nothing in the room.
A Precious Human Life:
Every day, think as you wake up,
Today I am fortunate to have woken up,
I am alive, I have a precious human life,
I am not going to waste it.
I am going to use
All my energies to develop myself,
To expand my heart out to others,
To achieve enlightenment for
The benefit of all beings,
I am going to have kind thoughts towards others,
I am not going to get angry,
Or think badly about others,
I am going to benefit others
As much as I can
The True Meaning of Life:
We are visitors on this planet. We are here for ninety or one hundred years at the very most. During that period, we must try to do something good, something useful, with our lives. If you contribute to other people's happiness, you will find the true goal, the true meaning of life.
