Beatitudes - The Be-Happy Attitudes from Bible - Robert Schuller

What is beatitude?

Beatitude is blessedness. God has blessed you. The state of a person who is blessed by the God is blessedness.

Understand from the opposite of it.

The opposite of beatitude is misery.
Misery means being afflicted unwillingly with painful sufferings.

Beatitude is happiness and bliss. It is an attitude toward things that happen in our life on earth. Jesus preached the beatitudes for the Kingdom of Heaven.

While the Beatitudes of Jesus provide a way of life that promises salvation (peaceful and blissful life after death), they also provide peace in the midst of our trials and tribulations on this earth. )

  • "Always" and "never" are binary words that practically always I practically never use.
  • To be uncertainty averse is to be afraid or what we don't know what to be afraid of.

We not only under utilize our emotional intelligence, we pollute it. As a result personal human capital is misunderstood, misdeveloped and misused; and this affects all human behavior. As a result the brain speaks one language, the mind speaks another and much gets lost in translation.

Pure happiness is a litmus test of the pure self. If you do not have pure happiness then you do not have a pure self. Pure happiness is a symptom of your pure self. 

Trying to create pure happiness is the same as trying to create a pure life, a wise life. Pure happiness is an innate expression of the pure self. Learning to become wise boils down to learning to become happy. Selflessness being the key to wisdom means that selflessness is the key to pure happiness. Learning to become selfless is learning to become wise which generates wise behavior which produces pure happiness.

Fragrance is hard to define; yet there is a humongous perfume industry. Similarly wisdom is hard to define and man can develop an even bigger wisdom industry.
Man has not figured out wisdom but has a good understanding of its attributes; so he keeps seeking wisdom by trying to cultivate its attributes. It is like trying to cultivate the apple without the apple tree. By trying to create wisdom through cultivating its attributes man ends up creating neither.

We must wake up to the fact that we cannot define fragrance yet look at the fragrance industry! Why can't we do the same with the wisdom industry. Fragrance is a luxury while wisdom is not only an essential necessity; it brings with it health, wealth and happiness.

Transmitting knowledge is a fact similar to throwing a stone into the water: the greater weight or more content produced concentric circles that expand to reach a greater number of human beings.
If we read twice a book at second time or turn to watch a movie or a play and we have a different view of the previous time, it means that our knowledge has increased.
The knowledge is transmitted in different ways. Let’s use them to grow in wisdom.
Many people think they are smart if they know a lot of data but cannot connect it.
True intelligence is analyzing related data to decide correctly.

About decisions and behavior

  • Always and never are binary words that practically always I practically never use.
  • Before making a decision, sleep over it, even if it makes you sleepless.
  • If you smile without any reason, some idiots will consider you as an idiot. It is a way to detect them.
  • Decide with your head, your heart, your guts, your feet. Or just ask your spouse.
  • Not to get fried, stay underground, potatoes tell us
  • Secret agents never talk, as they say.
  • Speculation is to decide according to how we see the future. Human beings do it all the time, which is why they differ from lettuces.
  • Pity the confusion of the mad chameleons that endlessly adapt their color to one another.
  • Boredom is a factory with two lines of products: wise ideas and silly impatient moves. When bored, press the right mental button!
  • Mistakes come from bad cognition (reasoning, memory), emotional biases (frights, desires)or automaticity (habit, reflex..). For a big mistake, better combine the three. 

About money

  • Inventing money gave birth to arithmetics, writing, and thus History. A small step for the purse, a big step for mankind!
  • Money is the Swiss army knife of the economy. Have it in your pocket, or have a bank carry it for you.
  • To cancel out the pain due to losing one euro you have to gain at least two euros (just paraphrasing the "prospect theory" from Nobel prize Daniel Kahneman).
  • Many consider that a problem that can be solved with money is not a problem (stolen).
  • A fool and his money get soon parted away (stolen also, not the money but the quote ;-))
  • Do deep pockets make smart? Or does smartness make deep pockets ? Science is still looking for a hint of any correlation.

About knowledge and uncertainty
  • The main obstacle to knowledge is not ignorance but the absence of doubts.
  • To kneel in front of generally accepted knowledge without asking questions is not knowledge but kneeledge
  • To have doubts about uncertainty is not enough to be certain
  • Better feel uncertain about certainties, as uncertainty is more certain.
  • To be uncertainty averse is to be afraid or what we don't know what to be afraid of.
  • All along your life you have to learn, which needs efforts, and sometimes to de-learn, which needs much more efforts.
  • Some people are trying to know what you think they think about what you think. This makes it a bit hard not to disappoint them.
  • As a personal hygiene, I don't leave my neurons be contaminated by favorite quotes. I prefer to invent my own platitudes. You are welcome to make this ...your favorite quote.
  • Kant found it hard to swallow all what was said about reason. Like me he expressed some criticism. But we worked separately and never took a beer together.
  • Wikipedia's motto is "An article about a topic should never be written by somebody who knows the topic, any expert should be burnt as "original". Knol's motto is "if you know something, don't hide it selfishly, just write a knol !"
About society
  • Globalization is the world becoming itself.
  • The human beings own society but society does not own the human beings 
  • A government supported by the poor might logically want to have more poors. It does not mean that one supported by the rich would want more rich people.
  • The day there are more politicians than citizens, the citizens will run the show, thanks to rarity.
  • Walking on the moon was a big step for mankind. To have all national days fall on the same day would be a bigger one.
  • Identity is the road to conformity. Nobody is identical to somebody else. Cloning will not change it.
  • To focus one's attention on one's roots should not go as far as thinking like a vegetable.
  • The purpose of an enclosed economy is to lead to an enclosed society in which the citizens close their mouth

About arts and sciences

  • Art without creation is dead beauty
  • Neither intelligent design nor survival of the fittest explains the existence of the taxpayer.
  • On planets that rotate fast and where the night fall any other second, strobe lamps sell like hot pies.
  • Strange that what is called space travel is done in vehicles that have no more space than a closet.
  • Bayesian probabilities tell, contrarily to the standard laws of randomness, and to a general opinion, that a dead cat cannot die again, even less seven times.
  • Buses are sausages of compressed human beings. Some of them fly and are called planes.
  • Intensive research in neuroeconomics has detected many behavioral biases. Expect that lawmakers declare similar research in neuropolitics politically incorrect.
  • Einstein thought that God does not play dice with the Universe. It is true that no cubic planets have ever been detected.

Minoo bhagia

  • What is better than presence of mind in a railway accident ? ----- Absence of body.
  • I wish he had at least half an eye so that I would have seen him eye to eye . I am very angry with a person who makes eyes and want to throw dust in his eyes and hang on him by the eyelids so that he minds his own eyes and does not set eyes on the apple of one's eye as in the eyes of law this is a crime.So better live with a friendly eye and do not view with a jealous eye.Be all eyes till you are up to the eyes.At times I can not make him open his eyes as his eyes are bigger than his bellies.This is nothing but all my eyes and Betty Martin so be out of eyeshot of my eyes and have an eye on who makes eyes as eye for eye is the only answer in my mind's eye.See him eye to eye and make him open his eyes and tell him to mind his own eyes.Do not just sit and put fingers in your eyes, be as clear as the eye of the day with an eye wash.
  • Who is asking a question which does no exist. He thinks he is Another Solomon.Keep on giving him pieces of your mind till it gives no sign of life.Do not give him ear otherwise it will be in his custody forever.Giving away body in pieces is a matter of give and take so do not give up.I would rather give the whole world to take back my ear which was given away just to give ground to clear the doubt whether the question exists or not and to answer my purpose after all it is my duty to answer to the door.Be all ears and please give ears to what I am saying.
  • Many people say money is immaterial to them but it becomes material once it comes to them.
  • All things are done by the finger of God then why is he teaching us where to keep our fingers , twist him round his fingers as if fingers are all thumbs.Do not let him slip through your fingers till he twists himself to the finger nails.Then look at his fingers, I am sure he is having finger itch at his finger tips to have a finger in every pie we have made.Take it easy and show him his way with your wet fingers.
  • Minoo Bhagia & Sajid Khan Just as MB said money is our 6th sense we can say that wisdom is our main sense!
  • Wit knol is rising bit by bit and at this stage we must all do our bits to accelerate it's speed.Cuddle your    brain a little bit or suck , pick one's brain , stick like a leech if you want to have bread and butter with Angela as she is bread and butter miss .Do you know which side of her bread is more buttered ? It is buttered on both sides.Come on do not just go blackberrying , do the best of your abilities. If all the contributors want to have party tonight wait a little bit.
  • Cultivate forgiveness and tolerance :)
  • Keep awake during discussion
  • Injure none
  • Pass no sarcastic remarks
  • Utter not harsh words
  • Make all happy
  • You can not make an omelet without breaking eggs so hit the nail on your head on it's nail as hard as nail and quite right as nail even if it is a hard nut to crack.Now you can see eye to eye whether you are a mad man or made man , do you have maggot's in your brain or it is full of grey matter.Are you -1 or +1, if you are below +2 you can sow some seeds of wisdom tree.That wasn't a nailed up drama but a naked truth that you really opened up the laboratory of your mind in a mad minute.
  • Heart should be in the right place to win one's heart.One should not have his heart in his mouth so that he can loose the heart easily.
  • Knowledge and understanding are the pith and marrow of the wisdom.
  • You are going to teach grandmother to suck the eggs ? She is already taking part in egg and spoon race.I am sure she is as full as an egg is of meat.the scene is definitely going to be all sausages and meat.This race is meat and drink for her.She is quite sure that egg is egg and spoon is spoon not basket.For god's sake take a fast hold of her by making it fast because fast people live fast and pass away fast like all eggs in one basket.What did you say ? you are still in egg.Make it fast because if she is faster than you then you will be as full as an egg.
  • Do not fall for her as it is considered as a fall of man.You should fall away from her and fall upon a fallen angel and let the world see it as a fall of the year.You can fall on her if your plan of falling on fallen angel has failed off.Put an end to this falling off business otherwise you will fall into falling sickness and whole world will say that you have fallen on evil times and you will come in the category of one who keeps on falling till he fails to fall.

I have a very clear path to a better world but I cannot do it alone. I am a theorist just like a script writer; who still needs the whole movie production team to make the movie. Are you with me?
I now have a very clear path to clean up much of the mess in the world today.
It is definitely due to the lack of our understanding what the mind is. The mind is the most important part of every human being. The fact that we have failed to define the mind has led to this lack of even trying to educate each mind to the +2 super mature level. The higher the intelligence and the emotional intelligence; the higher the mind. We have cutting edge subjects like math and science for developing intelligence and zero subjects for developing emotional intelligence. And herein lies the problem. The mind is powered by intelligence and emotional intelligence and so we have a highly developed professional intelligence while our emotional intelligence is left undeveloped. Fortunately many factors contribute to a small section of humanity developing their emotional intelligence to the super mature level. While the vast majority is left to a life of struggle due to a messed up emotional intelligence.
The Mind.
The mind is a super sense that is formed by a mixture of the five senses and is powered by intelligence and emotional intelligence. The mind is a process that is projected by the brain in the form of self consciousness. Self consciousness takes the input from the five senses and with the help of intelligence and emotional intelligence acts/reacts to navigate life. The mind is a projection of the brain which the brain uses to become self conscious. The brain physically synthesizes the input from the five senses and these together form the mixture/compound of the mind. The quality of the brain determines the quality of the mind.
The question is that it does not matter what the mind is; the question is is there a way to educate/make the mind super mature? The highest quality mind is powered by selflessness! And selflessness can be taught. Every mind can be made selfless! Thus every mind can be made +2 super mature!!!


I think that you need to look inside yourself for wisdom. You have to believe in yourself and understand yourself completely. It doesn't matter how intelligent you are: if you are comfortable with yourself you will be smart, no matter what the situation.

Wit, on the other hand, is something you learn. My wit stems from British comedies and farces and Early Modern dramas and comedies by Shakespeare, Fletcher and Beaumont and all the other great playwrights of that era. I think also that wit is an acquired taste -- you either like it or not!!!   

Sajid Khan

'The brain is the engine, while the car is the physical body of the human being where the mind is the driver of this car of life.'

It is very clear to me that wisdom is a compound where all its individual attributes/ingredients have in them all the other attributes of wisdom. Wisdom is an all entity where each attribute of wisdom is biochemically compounded to every other attribute of wisdom. They all come together in a single unit of wisdom. Each attribute boils down to wisdom. For example love also contains all the other attributes of wisdom like respect, caring, sacrifice etc. However the chief property that makes love pure is selflessness. Selfless love is pure love. Again selfless caring is wisdom. Selfless sacrifice is wisdom. All the attributes of wisdom are powered by selflessness. Each attribute boils down to selflessness; thus selflessness is wisdom. So it will not be wrong to figure out/assume that by creating selflessness we will be creating wisdom. Selflessness is the power that generates wisdom. In order to become wise one has to become selfless. Becoming selfless means being free of one's own self image/ego as far as possible. Selflessness is known, understood and definable within the paradigm of science! Selflessness can be taught as a pure science subject; just like math and science. Please google 'Self Image Therapy'. 
Fragrance is hard to define; yet there is a humongous perfume industry. Similarly wisdom is hard to define and man can develop an even bigger wisdom industry.
Man has not figured out wisdom but has a good understanding of its attributes; so he keeps seeking wisdom by trying to cultivate its attributes. It is like trying to cultivate the apple without the apple tree. By trying to create wisdom through cultivating its attributes man ends up creating neither.

We must wake up to the fact that we cannot define fragrance yet look at the fragrance industry! Why can't we do the same with the wisdom industry. Fragrance is a luxury while wisdom is not only an essential necessity; it brings with it health, wealth and happiness.

  • Most humans are Greek to themselves. It need not be so.
  • You cannot say to some one to be truthful and honest while his brain continues to generate selfishness powered by electrochemical reactions. Asking or pleading with a physically and emotionally ignorant brain to stop generating the wrong electrochemical reactions is almost like telling a dirty bed sheet to clean itself! It will never happen.
  • Spiritual intelligence = wisdom =self mastery = +2 emotional intelligence. They are all one and the same entity. You cultivate one you cultivate them all.
       Time is an opportunity disguised as life. Life is an opportunity disguised as time.
       Contextual mindfulness is virtually getting into the mind set of your own self image from the inside out       as well as from an observer's outside in point of view, while at the same time being aware of performing this mind exercise to observe what the mind is observing and the images in parallel mirrors.
As FDR said 'The only thing you need to fear is fear itself'. I will take this statement one step further 'The only thing to fear is to fear the cause that creates fear - thus the only thing to fear is ignorance!'.

Ignorance is a symptom of an impure self just as wisdom is a symptom of the pure self.
'New knowledge is like a drop of fresh water that is
dropped into a glass full of old water.
The key to wisdom is to learn to remove the stale water and replace it with the fresh water'.

Spiros Kakos

  • When the answer cannot be put into words, neither can the question be put into words. The riddle does not exist. If a question can be framed at all, it is also possible to answer it. Scepticism is not irrefutable, but obviously nonsensical, when it tries to raise doubts where no questions can be asked. For doubt can exist only where a question exists, a question only where an answer exists, and an answer only where something can be said. [Lugwig Wittgenstein, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus]

Good page views

It is nice that there are good weekly page views for the knol.

Should we focus on humor for sometime. Transfer wisdom down and create space for humor at the top. A variation could bring more visitors.
Narayana Rao - 05 Nov 2009
Yes, why not a humor section.
Of course there might be some difficulty at sorting between wit and wisdom in the case of citations which are at the same time deeply wise and still attract roaring laughter (this happens, remember Groucho Marx or Sacha Guitry), but those can appear in both sections. In fact it seems to me that this is the spirit of this page.
So we might start that humor section but if we see that it brings just a collection of meaningless jokes (like French jokes about Belgians or vice versa ;-), we would have in my opinion to get back to the status quo ante.
Peter Greenfinch - 05 Nov 2009
I'm very happy with the page views!

Yes, maybe we should put in subsections for humor and other categories?

Life takes exam first - good one

Actually, we do not know when life is teaching us, allowing us to practice and when it is taking exam. We live by guessing or estimating the action of life.

Angela, Do you want to enter your poem in the contest?

A small change in the format

I thought having a top slot for recent additions would be good. When the next one is added, this can be removed. Is there a need for archive for this?
Narayana Rao - 14 Oct 2009

I like the recent additions slot. I don't believe we'll need an archive, but we'll see.

I gave this knol a new and shorter URL:

Hurray for sore fingers (not like I used to type the old URL in anyway, though)!

70 page views in a week

Some knol authors are writing really high quality knols.

Good for the knol platform and authors.

I felt knol should become TOP 100 Website

Goal of Knol: Knol Authors 100,000 - Knols 1 million - Top 100 Website

Hope wit and wisdom contribute to it.
Narayana Rao - 01 Aug 2009
Yes, I hope it will continue to do so. I'm hoping to attract all kinds of authors with bits of wisdom they would like to contribute.
Anonymous - 01 Aug 2009
Good. It is still maintaining around 70 page views per week.
Narayana Rao - 29 Jul 2009
I think it should be too! I am voting yes in the bulletin board.

Vaidheeswaran S

Death is hereditary ? I am hearing this for the first time.
What do you mean by that ? you are talking as if death is a disease.
minoo bhagia - 31 Jul 2009
Wow ! no children for an infertile couple.Why didn't I thought of it....just brilliant !
keep it up.

Vaidheeswaran , why don't you write something in philosophy debate.I am the only person from India who is writing over there.You can also join if you want.
minoo bhagia - 31 Jul 2009
thank you.
infertility of a man or woman will not pass because no children for a infertile person. I put this because I felt this tells about death in a different prospective. If wrong tell me I will delete.
Vaidheeswaran Sivanesan - 30 Jul 2009
:) From T shirt ? must be 2BU T-shirt....
That means life is also hereditary , then why only infertility is non hereditary ? I have seen so many families where it is hereditary.
I liked your quote '' Quit smoking is very easy, I quit it many times.''
minoo bhagia - 30 Jul 2009
Thank you for your comment.
I feel this line gives the meaning that death is happening to everybody in the world generation by generation. No one is exception to death.
I got this line from a t-shirt quote.
And I formed one more line like this “infertility is non-hereditary”.
Vaidheeswaran Sivanesan - 29 Jul 2009

Angel (A)

Dear Angela , see what have you done...?
you made all ''sausages and meat '' of my posts.
''Who is asking a question ''..........was an answer to Spiros.. post and....'' twist around your fingers'' was an answer to Vaidheeswaran S....escape key. Now what to do ?
If you permit I can edit it tomorrow as I have lost all my ATP's thinking and writing in philosophy debate.
minoo bhagia - 27 Jul 2009
Okay !
minoo bhagia - 17 Jul 2009
Sorry, minoo! I was trying to organize it, because it's not supposed to be a forum or bulletin board like format, just a small quote or tip you have.

Removed myself as co-author - This is better

@all authors of this knol: I removed myself as a co-author from the Wit knol. This is because I think this knol is a very good and clever idea YOU had and because I write one sentence I do not deserve to be named a "co-author". Unfortunately I do not have the time to be a co-author to this knol (actually and to be honest I have little time to spend on my own knols...). But thanks anyway! I believe this is the more just thing to do. I will continue posting and supporting you in all the ways I can in this effort! Keep knoling!
Spiros Kakos - 16 Jul 2009
Thanks Spiros. I respect your decision, I was just trying to include all the members of the board. Anytime you want to come back, just let me know.

Wisdom - Knol Book

Wisdom - Knol Book - Suggestion to Mr. Sajid Khan

Wisdom - Knol Book - Suggestion to Mr. Sajid Khan


Mr. Sajid Khan,

You can create a knol book on wisdom. You had written number of knols on the topic. You can arrange them into chapter knol collections and all the knol collections can be assembled into a Knol Book. My initial idea for chapters would be:

Wisdom - The Traditional Thought

Wisdom - A New Explanation by Sajid Khan

Wise Society - The Concept

Wise Society - More Healthy and Happy Society

How to Make a Person a Wise and Societies Wise

Wise Society Development - Agenda for Governments

Wise Society Development - Agenda for Corporate Firms

Wise Society Development - Agenda for Religious Leaders

Wise Society Development - Agenda for Businessmen

Wise Society Development - Agenda for Parents

Wise Society Development - Agenda for Teachers and Institutions

Wise Society Development - Personal Initiatives and Coaching

Wise Society Development - The 4R Foundation Mission and Plan

While the above is a quick suggestion by me, You can modify them as you think fit and create a Knol Wisdom Tree - A Knol Book that will communicate your thoughts in a more organized way.

Thank you

Dear Prof. KVSS: Hari Om!

Thank you for your invaluable advice. Right now I have become busy with other stuff. Joining this new society as president makes me feel very powerful right here in New York. Even more powerful than I felt way back as a prince and clan leader in India.

Wisdom - Intelligence - Knowledge - Education - Schuller's Views

Wisdom - Intelligence - Knowledge - Education - Schuller's Views

Wisdom - Intelligence - Knowledge - Education - Schuller's Views


Robert H. Schuller is author two well known New York Times Bestsellers, Tough Times Never Last, But Tough People Do, and Success is Never Ending, Failure is Never Final

Education is the acquisition of knowledge.

Wisdom is the ability to use knowledge intelligently.

Although facts are the lifeblood of knowledge, attitude (about certain objects) is the lifeblood of wisdom.

Accomplishments of a person depend on wisdom.

A positive attitude toward possibilities to solve various problems around produces wisdom.

Knowledge without wisdom produces an educated negative thinker.

Real Intelligence is rooted in the subconscious and is the ability to recognize and respond enthusiastically to positive possibilities.

Robert H. Schuller, Success is Never Ending, Failure is Never Final, Orient Paperbacks Edition, 1989, p.48

    I must run the machine as I find it.
    I say "try" - if we never try, we shall never succeed.

    Regarding Bible

    Take all of this book upon reason that you can, and the balance on faith, and you will live and die a happier man.
    All I ask for the Negro is that if you do not like him, let him alone. If God gave him little let him that little enjoy.
    Books serve to show a man that those original thoughts of his aren't very new after all.
    In all that the people can individually do as well for themselves, the government ought not interfere.

    Regarding defeat

    Let us, therefore, study the incidents of this as philosophy-to learn wisdom from them as wrongs to be avenged.


    No man is good enough to govern another man without that others consent.
     The ballot is stronger than the bullet.
    He who does something at the head of one regiment will eclipse him who does nothing at the head of a hundred.
    A thousand pretenses for not getting along are all nonsense-they deceive nobody but yourself.
    Tact is the ability to describe others as they see themselves.
    Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any  other thing.
