A monk asked The Buddha:

“Under what conditions is it possible to come to the knowledge of the past and to understand the most supreme way?” 

The Buddha answered:

“Those who are pure in heart and single in purpose are able to understand the most supreme way.  It is like polishing a mirror which becomes bright when the dust is removed.  Remove your passions and have no hankering and the past will be revealed unto you.”  

A monk then asked The Buddha:

“What is good and what is great?”

The Buddha answered:

“Good is to practice the way and to follow the truth.  Great is the heart that is in accord with the way.”  


I’ve read a hundred business books and a thousand spiritual books and they all essentially say this, just with allot more words…  nothing says it better which is why these teachings so deeply resonate within me.
