Title: Golden Nuggets
Author: John Marks Templeton
People are asking many important questions today: How do I find peace in the midst of turmoil? How can I be in the world, but not of the world? How can my life be useful and happy? What is true prosperity? Finding the answers to these questions is an important part of life. “Seek and you shall find” are words of wisdom that lead you on a search for true values and what I call “laws of life.” The material presented here represents some principles I have used for making personal, professional, and spiritual decisions. It is designed to inspire as well as encourage you; to help you consider more deeply the laws you personally live by; and to reap the rewards of their practical application. The world operates on spiritual principles just as it operates on the laws of physics and gravity. It is up to us to learn what these principles are and then choose to live by them. Spiritual laws are impartial because they apply equally to everyone throughout the world. They work without prejudice or bias at all times and in all places. These laws are self-enforcing and are not dependent on human authority or commandments. Golden Nuggets is aimed at assisting people of all ages to learn more about these universal truths of life that transcend modern times or particular cultures in the hope that it may help people to make their lives happier and more useful. There is a relationship between the invisible thoughts and feelings of our minds and the visible actions we take as a result of them. If we learn how things work, we will be better able to live productive, joyful lives. You will see there are several themes that run through this collection: themes of thankfulness, gratitude, prayer, forgiveness, and positive thinking. These represent simple wisdom that has taken a lifetime to gather. It would be a great joy to me if I could share with you a few words that might make your lives more peaceful and loving. It has been said that “life is a tough school because the exams come first and the learning afterwards.” This book is a sincere attempt to provide some opportunities for learning so you will be prepared for the exams that will come. If this book has been useful for you, there is a larger, more extensive version available called Worldwide Laws of Life: 200 Eternal Spiritual Principles. It is a collection of two hundred laws of life that I have gathered from ancient scripture, philosophers, storytellers, scientists, artists, and historians. You can probably find it at your favorite bookstore. Our stay on this small planet called Earth is a brief one, and we have an excellent opportunity to leave the world a better place than we found it through our choice of how we live our lives. When we examine our thoughts, words, and deeds, and align them with principles that work, not only for ourselves but also for others, we know we are on the right track. I sincerely hope that these words help you to live a life that is loving, peaceful, prosperous, and useful. JOHN MARKS TEMPLETON
