Let Good Actions Change Your Mind and Spirit

When we take wisdom and pass it on, many people will understand the true characteristic of the world, and have wisdom, and become happy.

After they have received the benefits, they too will take this wisdom of liberation and again pass it on.

Afer we use the torch of wisdom to light the tinder in other people's minds, their minds also will become torches, and they will go on and light up the minds and spirits of more people.(page 170)

~An excerpt from The World is a Reflection of the Mind.

当我们把智慧传递出去的时候,许多人就会明白世界的真相,拥有智慧,变得快乐。他们受益之后,又会把这种解脱的智慧再次传递出去。这很像一个薪火相传的过程。当我们用智慧的火把点亮别人心中的火种之后,他们的心也会变成火把,他们就能点亮更多人的心灵。(145页)
