“In the life of Gautama Buddha we notice him constantly saying that he is the twenty-fifth Buddha. The twenty-four before him are unknown to history, although the Buddha known to history must have built upon foundations laid by them. The highest men are calm, silent and unknown. they are the men who really know the power of thought; they are sure that even if they go into a cave and close the door and simply think five true thoughts and then pass away, these five thoughts of theirs will live throughout eternity. Indeed such thoughts of theirs will penetrate through the mountains, cross the oceans and travel through the world. They will enter deep into human hearts and brains and raise up men and women who will give them practical expression in the workings of human life … The Buddhas and the Christs will go from place to place preaching these truths … These Sattvika men are too near the Lord to be active and to fight, to be working, struggling, preaching and doing good, as they say, here on earth to humanity …”

- Swami Vivekananda

“While our nations have many differences, they are both defined and propelled by a fundamental truth…that all of us are blessed with divine light, and every person is endowed with a sacred soul… ‘The moment I stand in reverence before every human being, and see God in him, that moment I am free.’

- Donald Trump in India quoting Swami Vivekananda, disciple of Ramakrishna.

“Whatever we cling to, even if it be hope or faith, can be the disease which carries us off. Surrender is absolute: if you cling to even the tiniest crumb you nourish the germ which will devour you.”

“Beware the beast Man, for he is the Devil’s pawn. Alone among God’s primates, he kills for sport or lust or greed. Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother’s land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him; drive him back into his jungle lair, for he is the harbinger of death.”
— The Lawgiver, (as spoken by Cornelius in Planet of the Apes)


Commentary:

This is from a 1968 movie but it’s also the underlying thought behind a philosophy that human presence is destroying the planet.

The first Earth Day appeared a few years after this movie.

Now most everyone is indoctrinated to this quote.

Make your last thought a good one. Gandhi's was God.

(Actually it was Ram, and supposedly he wasn't speaking English and misheard saying damn!).

Paradoxically, these days closed beaches means less hindsighting, more or less.
