Jewels of Truth Quotations & Favorite Quotes Of The Day

Hello All,

Here is my latest installment of my "Jewels of Truth" segment for your enlightened pleasure. May you enjoy it as much as I have in authoring these wisdom based quotations.

776) Beloved remember among all the hostile environments of this Earth. This one truth holds forever that a heart filled with unconditional love will invoke the "Kingdom of God" upon your shoulders. No matter what specific faith you adhere to, no exclusion can with hold the mercy & compassion of God's graces upon this truly blessed Earth.
For this Earth will one day pass on as so many of her creatures have gone before her. Know that your faith guided by trust and compassion will release one from many the maladies that a mortal life can cast upon you. Be full of strength and God's courage to live wisely and full of joy. Amen. ---Ivan / Atrayo.

777) Laws are just as dysfunctional as the institutions that write them into being. Laws as a form of social contract are meaningless without an ardent group of people to uphold and enforce them. A law is useless when it is disregarded by the people and especially by the governing bodies that created them. Legal & Illegal reforms are meaningless without a body of supporters to make it so. Laws are a function of the psyche of a society to govern itself, by its own standards of any given culture that dominates it at the time. People are at the heart of mitigating just and unjust laws being ordained or neglected due to complacency, corruption, or a higher truth that is at work. In the end as it is in the beginning, the people are the law and the only authority. ---Ivan / Atrayo.

780) Tell me of a religious institution that is not dysfunctional, and I shall call it truly immaculate as an governing body. All institutions created by mortal hands are prone to being uneven and dysfunctional in nature. Acceptance of this sometimes selfish and competitive interests versus a cooperative spirit causes much internal conflict. Knowing this attitude at all levels of the governing body will exercise great fortitude in its relations with all served. It should let go of petty motives and seek to improve all relations in an inclusive sharing spirit of open mindedness and action. So as to complete a cycle of service from the hierarchy to the end user with kindness and compassion as it's true dogma. ---Ivan / Atrayo.


In every adversity there is a seed of equal or greater benefit, but you must be receptive and willing to look for and find it. ---Sue Mackey & Laura Tonkin. "Living Well, Working Smart: Soft Skills for Success."

I've had a lot of worries in my life, most of which never happened. ---Mark Twain.

Even in a world that's being ship wrecked, remain brave and strong. ---Hildegard von Bingen.
