COPYBOOK MAXIMS

Luisa Rodrigues

FOREWORD
We are what we think all day long. Watch for your high tides and flow up with them;
when the inevitable low tides come, either rest or meditate. You do not need to feel
low unless you want to be. There are texts, mantras, adages, even copybook
maxims you can recall and meditate upon, that will drive away the worst fit of the
blues. Accept things as you find them and try to make the best of them here and
now. Get acquainted with your own soul. Know why you do this or that, why you feel
this or that. Sit quietly when in doubt and let the truth rise from the deeps of yourself.
The way you feel about yourself impacts on how you will do everything in life.
Looking on the bright side does not make you blind to the problems around you but it
helps you to see them in a positive light. If you feel good about who you are, then
what you do will be an outside reflection, so hold your head up high, show your
positive side and have a wonderful day.

A joyous heart attracts joyous events.

All is Light. All is Love. All is Unity.

All you need to do is ask.

Always the trials precede the attainment.

A man seeks what he desires.

A new interest is a new lease of life.

An ideal is a tendency.
An idle brain is the devil’s workshop.

As above, so below.

As a door shuts, another door opens immediately.

A seed sown today may bear fruit long hence.

As the twig is bent, the tree inclines.

As within, so without.

Avoid negative thinking—it shuts off your good.

Be free.

By attacking a thing, we give it power.

Call spades, spades.

Caring creates communication.

Concentration is the secret of power.

Desire a thing intensely enough and you are on the way to it.

Do as you would be done by.

10 | P a g e

Do good, be positive, and love God.

Don’t leave for tomorrow what can be done today.

Don’t let other people rock your boat.

Don’t let others do your thinking for you.

Do what is naturally right.

Each for all and all for each.

Even our failures are a valuable part of our experience.

Every action has a reaction.

Every man has made himself just what he is.

Examine your motives always.

Experience is an asset. We grow by pain as well as pleasure.
Facts are facts. It is unwise to shut one’s eyes to simple facts.

Find a little more time each day for doing nothing at all.

For everything, give thanks!

Giving opens the way for receiving.

Honesty is the best policy.

I can do all things.

If I receive true knowledge, I shall have power enough.

If one goes high enough, one may behold the inconceivable.

If one wants nothing, he has everything.

I like to pay my debts.

Imagination is potent.

It is pain that mellows the heart.

It is the traveller with the open mind who makes discoveries.

Knowledge is the forerunner of power.

Learn to relax.

Let go and seek for nothing.

Let go of urgency.

Life is so short.

18 | P a g e

Listen to the voice of intuition.

Live a brave and clean life.

Live and let live.

Look up!

Love for all that lives!

Love is the law of our being!

19 | P a g e

Love your enemies—that is the surest way to overcome them.

Make love the sole law of your life.

Make sacrifices.

Moderation in all things!

No matter how bad it gets, remember it could have been worse.

Nothing can be achieved without time and patience.

Observe fully. Communicate truthfully.

Observe, observe. Observe.

20 | P a g e

Only give.

Only you have the power to choose for yourself.

Our dreaming is a kind of building.

Our work is our own.

Perseverance pays.

Practice makes perfect.

Practice on moods.

Prove before accepting anything.

Respect brings respect.

Restraint, restraint!

Sacrifice for others and give to others what you most want for yourself.

23 | P a g e

Search and you will find.

See everything as it really is.

Serve if you hope to survive.

Strive on!

Surrender. Give in. Let go. Let God.

Take it easy—one day at a time.

Take more time to think.

Tell and live your truth.

The farmer knows when to let a field lie fallow.

The greatest law we have is love.

The hardest road leads to the quickest and best results.

The husk of the seed must be broken before the sprout can appear.

The law of life is the law of belief.

The object of life is life.

There is always a better way.

There is always more than one point of view on everything.

The thing we fear attacks us sooner or later.

The surest way to attract disasters is to imagine them.

Think carefully before acting.

To posit is to create.

27 | P a g e

To receive, one must give. That is the law.

Trust your intuition—it points the way.

Unlimitedness—that is the key.

Watch the changing colours of a cloud.

We all make what we live in.

We are all in one common brotherhood.

We attract what we fear.

We can all try harder.

We have a right to do about as we please.

We lose to gain again.

We work too much. Have leisure to dream and to realise your dream.

What you condemn in others, you attract to yourself.

What you give to another, you give to yourself.

What you resist persists.

What you set your heart upon must come about.

31 | P a g e

Where Love is, God is.

Why worry? God is in control.

Why worry? It’ll probably never happen.

You can do practically anything you think you can do.

You can make something wonderful happen.

You can only receive what you see yourself receiving.

You receive most by giving.
