Basic Foundation for a
Living Philosophy (from Lao Russell)
To bring blessings upon yourself bless your neighbor.
To enrich yourself enrich your neighbor.
Honor your neighbor and the world will honor you.
To sorely hurt yourself hurt your neighbor.
He who seeks love will find it by giving it.
The measure of a man’s wealth is the measure of wealth he has given.
To enrich yourself with many friends enrich your friends with yourself.
That which you take away from any man the world will take away from you.
When you take the first step to give yourself to that which you want, it will also take its first step
to give itself to you.
Peace and happiness do not come to you from your horizon, they spread from you out to infinity
beyond your horizon.
The whole universe is a mirror which reflects back to you that which you reflect forward into it.
Love is like unto the ascent of a mountain. It comes ever nearer to you as you go ever nearer to it.
