  2. Born 551 BC Zou, Lu, Zhou Kingdom (present-day Nanxinzhen, Qufu, Shandong, China) Died 479 BC Confucius Zhu Xi stated that Analects is the records of Confucius's first- and second-generation pupils. The Analects (Selected Passages) of Confucius 雍也 - Yong Ye - 475 - 221 BC 子曰:“雍也可使南面。 Yong Ye: The Master said, "There is Yong (forever , permanence) "" - he might occupy the place of a prince." [6:11] The Master said: “Hui was indeed Worthy (Righteous, Sage)! With a single bamboo bowl of rice and gourd-cup of water he lived in a back alley.
  3. 14:12 And why should we not rely upon Allah while He has guided us to our [good] ways. And we will surely be patient against whatever harm you should cause us. And upon Allah let those who would rely [indeed] rely." Hillel the Elder taught the way of life was to bring merit to oneself by building a relationship Creator and care your neighbors in this world before it is too late. Otherwise, one's soul will not be worthy of the world to come. Pirkei Avot 1:14 The Great Isaiah Scroll Chapter 11 : John 14 Al-Baqara (The Cow) Moha
  4. Macrobius says, a settled opinion among them all; and they held it to be the only true wisdom, for the soul, while united with the body, to look ever toward its source, and strive to return to the place whence it came. Among the fixed stars it dwelt, until, seduced by the desire of animating a body, it descended to be imprisoned in matter. Thenceforward it has no other resource than recollection, and is ever attracted toward its birth-place and home. The means of return are to be sought for in itself. To re-ascend to its source, it must do and suffer in the body. It was the serpent, which
  5. The Breath of the Father (Holy Spirit) is an supernatural living force known by the movement by which he reveals the eternal Living Word to us and disposes us to welcome him in faith Origen De Principiis (Book I) Chapter 3.

  6. Rulers established their legacy not only by building great structures, they also passed on Wisdom Sebayt (Teaching, Didache) to their offspring and future leaders on the concepts divinity and virtue. The Maxims of Ptahhotep or Instruction of Ptahhotep (2500 - 2400 BC) is considered the oldest collection of wisdom literature in the world written by composed by the Vizier Ptahhotep, during the rule of King Izezi of the Fifth Dynasty. James Henry Breasted credited Amenemope with having a profound influence on Western ethical and religious development due to his Instruction being read by the He
  7. 600 years before Socrates, Aristotle and Demosthenes, the Israelite King Solomon wrote and shared words of wisdom to his people that a perfect weight on honest scales and balances are the Creator's will. Mishlei - Proverbs - Chapter 11 Proverbs 16 The Egyptian scale and balance concept of 'Ma’at' predated the Torah by 2000 years, but had a similar meaning of an active Creative Force of Nature involved in the scales and balances of Justice. Ma’at originated as a concept and evolved into belief in a goddess that was a manifestation of the Creator and Sun god, Amun Ra (Amun
  8. An-Nahl (The Bee) 16:97 Gathering data... The four Vedas (knowledge) are generally known by Hindus as the oldest hymns (scriptures) taught by the Creator to Aryan (Andronovo culture) Rishi (Sages) that decended South from Kazakhstan into India. According to Hindu tradition, the first vedas are the Rigvedic hymns taught by the Indra (Creator) to Rishi Vyāsa (Veda Vyāsa, Krishna Dwaipayana). The hymns were later written down by Paila, the disciple of Rishi Vyāsa and divided into ten Mandalas (Books, Volumes). The fortunes of these people have a direct co-relation o
  9. The Didache - Introduction "Son, if you look for the good you will find it. If you look for the bad you will find it too." This was the first moral teaching given to me by my father when I was just a boy. Learning the truth of good and bad starts with life experiences with family (mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, grandparents, aunts, uncles, guardians etc..) friends, classmates, teachers (pastors, priests, rabbis, professors, councilors, etc), and adversaries. Truth can be further shaped with the knowledge gained from media (internet, television, radio, movies, books, etc ). In this
  10. Spirits of the air that try to direct us. n Jewish mythology, a dybbuk (Yiddish: דיבוק‎, from the Hebrew verb דָּבַק‬ dāḇaq meaning "adhere" or "cling") is a malicious possessing spirit believed to be the dislocated soul of a dead person. It The Holy Spirit (Hebrew: ‬רוּחַ הַקֹּדֶשׁ‬, Modern ruach hakodesh, Tiberian ruaħ haqqodɛʃ) in Judaism, also termed "Divine Inspiration," Ibbur (Hebrew: עיבור‬, "pregnancy" or "impregnation" or "incubation"), is one of the transmigration forms of the soul and has similarities with Gilgul neshamot. Ibbur is always good or positive, while dybbu
  11. particles can be created from nothing but energy, certain features, such as electrical charge, cannot gravitational potential energy is negative. Because a negative amount of work is done to bring an object closer to the Earth, gravitational potential energy is always a negative number when using this reference point. The space between the stars and galaxies is largely empty. However, even places far from stars and planets contain scattered particles of dust or a few hydrogen atoms per cubic centimeter. Space is also filled with radiation (e.g. light and heat), magnetic field
  12. Genesis 9 9:4 But you must not eat meat with its life (that is, its blood) in it. 9:5 For your lifeblood I will surely exact punishment, from every living creature I will exact punishment. From each person I will exact punishment for the life of the individual since the man was his relative. 9:6 “Whoever sheds human blood, by other humans must his blood be shed; for in God’s image God has made humankind.” Leviticus 17 17:10 “‘Any man 23 from the house of Israel or from the foreigners who reside in their 25 midst who eats any blood, I will set my fa
  13. The 189th Article Why this passion excites weeping. Now, a man weeps easily in this passion because love, sending much blood to the heart, causes many vapors to issue through the eyes; and the coldness of sadness retarding the agitation of these vapors converts them into tears, as has been formerly said. The 190th Article Of satisfaction of oneself. The satisfaction that they have, who constantly follow the paths of virtue, is a habit in their soul called tranquility or quiet of conscience. But that which a man acquires anew when he has lately done any action that he thinks good
  14. The 186th Article Who are most pitiful. Those who feel themselves very weak and subject to the adversities of fortune seem to be more inclined to this passion than any else, because they fancy the evil of another as possible to befall them, and so they are moved to pity rather out of the love they bear themselves than that they bear to others. The 187th Article How the most generous men are sensible of this passion. But nevertheless, they who are most generous and have the greatest spirits so that they fear not any evil to themselves, and hold themselves above the power of for
