  1. 1. The Three Gates of Wisdom “ The silence in the Soul to Fulfillment” Prepared: Varouj Author: Charles Brulhart (edited) Music: AYMAN DOORWAYS “ The Yummy Connection” http://www.slideshare.net/firelight1
  2. 2. <ul><li>Once upon a time a king </li></ul><ul><li>had an only son </li></ul><ul><li>a Prince who was young, </li></ul><ul><li>courageous, skilful </li></ul><ul><li>and intelligent. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>So the king </li></ul><ul><li>sent his son away </li></ul><ul><li>to see a Wise Old man </li></ul><ul><li>to open his mind to </li></ul><ul><li>“ AWARENESS” </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>He sent the Prince </li></ul><ul><li>to meet the Wise Old man. </li></ul><ul><li>As he met the old man he pleaded </li></ul><ul><li>“ Enlighten me as to the path </li></ul><ul><li>in life I should take.” </li></ul><ul><li>The Wise man replied, </li></ul><ul><li>“ My words will only vanish like footsteps in the sand” </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>However, the Wise man said I will give you some instructions </li></ul><ul><li>on your path; you will </li></ul><ul><li>come across three Gates. </li></ul><ul><li>Read the sayings </li></ul><ul><li>on each of the Gates. </li></ul><ul><li>Follow the pathway </li></ul><ul><li>to discovery. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>You will be overwhelmed </li></ul><ul><li>during the journey. </li></ul><ul><li>But do not seek to turn back, </li></ul><ul><li>for you will be condemned </li></ul><ul><li>to live again and again </li></ul><ul><li>that which you had </li></ul><ul><li>run away from all your life. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>I can not say any more. </li></ul><ul><li>It is time you must follow </li></ul><ul><li>the road, right ahead of you. </li></ul><ul><li>As the Wise elder departed, </li></ul><ul><li>and the Prince started </li></ul><ul><li>walking on his journey </li></ul><ul><li>on the Path of Life. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>The Prince </li></ul><ul><li>soon came across </li></ul><ul><li>the first large gate </li></ul><ul><li>on which he read: </li></ul><ul><li>“ CHANGE THE WORLD” </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>This is precisely what </li></ul><ul><li>I intended to do, thought the Prince. </li></ul><ul><li>But, he started its first struggle. Driven by ideal, his passion and </li></ul><ul><li>his strength pushed him to be confronted with the world, </li></ul><ul><li>he undertook, conquered, </li></ul><ul><li>replicated reality to his desire. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>He experienced the pleasure </li></ul><ul><li>and the exhilaration of </li></ul><ul><li>the conqueror, but his </li></ul><ul><li>heart was not at rest. </li></ul><ul><li>He managed to change certain things but others would not </li></ul><ul><li>give way. Long years went by. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>One day, he met the </li></ul><ul><li>Wise Old Man who asked him: </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;What did you learn on the path?&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>The Prince replied. I learned what was in my power and what was beyond my power. Thus I now see what things I had influence in </li></ul><ul><li>and things beyond my control. </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>Well done, said the Old Man. </li></ul><ul><li>Use your strength to act </li></ul><ul><li>upon on what you can. </li></ul><ul><li>Forget about what is beyond you. </li></ul><ul><li>And the old man vanished. </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>As the Prince continued </li></ul><ul><li>on his journey. </li></ul><ul><li>Sometime later, the Prince came across a second gate. </li></ul><ul><li>One could read on it: </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;CHANGE OTHERS&quot; </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>This is precisely what I intend to do, thought the Prince. </li></ul><ul><li>And he rose against all that </li></ul><ul><li>could upset or displease </li></ul><ul><li>him in his fellow being. </li></ul><ul><li>But he struggled to alter their minds, and correct their faults. </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>Many more years went by. </li></ul><ul><li>One day, as he was meditating </li></ul><ul><li>on the failures of his </li></ul><ul><li>attempts to change others, </li></ul><ul><li>he came across the Wise Old </li></ul><ul><li>man and he asked him : </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;What did you learn on the path?&quot; </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>The Prince replied. </li></ul><ul><li>That other people are not the </li></ul><ul><li>source of my joys or sorrows, </li></ul><ul><li>my achievements or failures. </li></ul><ul><li>They are only there to </li></ul><ul><li>make me aware. &quot;You are right, said the Wise Man.” Though what they awaken in you, they made you aware of yourself. </li></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>Be grateful </li></ul><ul><li>towards those who make you </li></ul><ul><li>feel joy and pleasure. </li></ul><ul><li>But be also grateful to </li></ul><ul><li>these who hurt and frustrate </li></ul><ul><li>you for through them </li></ul><ul><li>Life Teaches you. </li></ul><ul><li>And the Old Man vanished. </li></ul>
  18. 18. <ul><li>A little time after, the Prince came across a Third Gate. </li></ul><ul><li>One can read on it: </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;CHANGE YOURSELF&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>The Prince paused a moment </li></ul><ul><li>to himself and said…. </li></ul>
  19. 19. <ul><li>“ If I am myself the </li></ul><ul><li>cause of my problems, </li></ul><ul><li>this is that I have to do.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>And he started his third struggle. He tried to inflect his character, to fight his imperfections, </li></ul><ul><li>to remove his defects, and </li></ul><ul><li>change every thing which </li></ul><ul><li>didn't correspond to his ideal. </li></ul>
  20. 20. <ul><li>After many years of struggle during which he was </li></ul><ul><li>at times successful </li></ul><ul><li>at times defeated, </li></ul><ul><li>the Prince met </li></ul><ul><li>the Wise man again. </li></ul>
  21. 21. <ul><li>The old man asked the Prince </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;What did you learn </li></ul><ul><li>on the path?&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>The Prince replied. That there are some things that can be improved, others which resist and can't be changed.&quot; </li></ul>
  22. 22. <ul><li>&quot;Well done,&quot; said the Wise man. </li></ul><ul><li>The Prince replied “I'm getting weary of fighting against myself. Won’t this ever end? When will I be at rest? </li></ul><ul><li>I wish to stop fighting </li></ul><ul><li>and give up and let go.&quot; </li></ul>
  23. 23. <ul><li>The wise old man said. </li></ul><ul><li>“ This happens to be </li></ul><ul><li>your next lesson.” </li></ul><ul><li>But before going any further, </li></ul><ul><li>turn around and look back at </li></ul><ul><li>the way you have already walked </li></ul><ul><li>And the Old Man vanished. </li></ul>
  24. 24. <ul><li>As he looked back, </li></ul><ul><li>the Prince saw in the distance the 3rd gate and realized that one could read a different message on the back of the gate and it read: </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;ACCEPT YOURSELF&quot; </li></ul>
  25. 25. <ul><li>The Prince wondered why he hadn't noticed this inscription when it had crossed the gate the first time, in the </li></ul><ul><li>opposite direction. </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;When one is fighting, </li></ul><ul><li>one becomes blind, </li></ul><ul><li>he said to himself.&quot; </li></ul>
  26. 26. <ul><li>He also saw, spread on </li></ul><ul><li>the ground around him, </li></ul><ul><li>every thing he had rejected </li></ul><ul><li>and fought within himself: </li></ul><ul><li>his faults, his dark side, </li></ul><ul><li>his fears, his limits, </li></ul><ul><li>and all his old daemons. </li></ul>
  27. 27. <ul><li>He then learnt </li></ul><ul><li>how to recognize them, </li></ul><ul><li>accept them and love them. </li></ul><ul><li>He learnt how to love himself without comparing himself, judging himself, </li></ul><ul><li>blaming himself. </li></ul>
  28. 28. <ul><li>He came across the Wise Old </li></ul><ul><li>man who asked him: </li></ul><ul><li>What did you learn </li></ul><ul><li>along the path? </li></ul><ul><li>The Prince replied. That to hate </li></ul><ul><li>or refuse part of myself was to condemn myself never to be </li></ul><ul><li>at peace within myself. </li></ul>
  29. 29. <ul><li>I learned how to accept myself, completely and unconditionally.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Well done, said </li></ul><ul><li>the wise Old Man, it is </li></ul><ul><li>the first stage of Wisdom. </li></ul><ul><li>Now you go through </li></ul><ul><li>the 3rd gate again.&quot; </li></ul>
  30. 30. <ul><li>Just as he had reached the other side of the gate, the Prince saw the back face of the second gate and it read : </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;ACCEPT OTHERS&quot;. </li></ul>
  31. 31. <ul><li>All around him he </li></ul><ul><li>recognized the people </li></ul><ul><li>he had met in his life; </li></ul><ul><li>those he had loved, </li></ul><ul><li>those he had hated, </li></ul><ul><li>those he had helped, </li></ul><ul><li>those he had fought. </li></ul>
  32. 32. But to his surprise, he was now unable to see their faults, which had disturbed him so much, and against which he had fought so much.
  33. 33. He came across the Wise Old man who asked him. &quot;What did you learn on your path?&quot; The Prince replied. That if I were in peace with myself, I would have nothing to blame others for, nothing to fear of them.
  34. 34. I have learned to accept others totally and unconditionally.&quot; &quot;Well done, said the Wise Old man, It is the second stage of Wisdom. Now you can go through the 2nd gate again.”
  35. 35. Just as he had reached the other side of the gate, the Prince saw the back of the first gate and it read: &quot;ACCEPT THE WORLD.&quot;
  36. 36. That is strange, he thought, &quot;Why didn't I see the inscription the first time?“ He looked around him and recognized the world he had tried to conquer, transform, and change.
  37. 37. He was hit by an awe the brightness and the beauty of all things. And yet it was the same world as it used to be. Had the world changed, or his perception of it changed?
  38. 38. He came across the Wise Old man and asked him. &quot;What did you learn on your path?&quot; The Prince replied…..
  39. 39. “ That the world is the mirror of my soul. That my soul, my heart does not see the world, but sees itself in the world. “….
  40. 40. “… When it is cheerful, the world seems merry. When it is gloomy, the world seems sad. The world is neither merry nor sad. It just is; that is all.”
  41. 41. … It was not the world that was troubling me, but the IDEA I had of it. I accepted to accept it without judging it, to reckon, unconditionally.
  42. 42. This is the 3rd Wisdom, said the Old Man. “ You are now at grace within yourself & others in the World.&quot; A deep feeling of peace, serenity and fulfillment overwhelmed the Prince. Silence was within him.
  43. 43. &quot;You are ready, now, to cross the last Threshold, said the Wise Old man, from the Silence of Fulfillment of Silence&quot;. And the Old Man disappeared.
  44. 44. <ul><li>God by wisdom founded the earth; By understanding He established the heavens; By His knowledge depths were broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew. Keep sound wisdom and discretion; so they will be life to your soul and grace to your neck. (Proverbs) </li></ul><ul><li>When wisdom enters your heart, and knowledge is pleasant to your soul, Discretion will preserve you: Understanding will keep you, deliver you from the way of perverse and evil. (Proverbs) </li></ul>
  45. 45. <ul><li>Live with passion </li></ul><ul><li>Pursue knowledge </li></ul><ul><li>Greet Imagination </li></ul><ul><li>Live with integrity </li></ul><ul><li>Share your humility </li></ul><ul><li>Exercise kindness </li></ul><ul><li>Repel forces of darkness “FEAR” </li></ul><ul><li>Reckon the SPIRIT “The Quiet Conscience” </li></ul><ul><li>Share “LOVE” the greatest gift </li></ul><ul><li>Which one are you living by? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>WISDOM of the WORLD or WISDOM of GOD </li></ul></ul>
  46. 46. <ul><li>The whole universal system is held together through love, harmony and cooperation. If you use your thoughts according to those principles you can transcend anything that gets in the way. </li></ul><ul><li>Once you have learned how to enter your inner kingdom, you have a special retreat within that is always available to greet you. </li></ul><ul><li>Entering the magic garden of miracles means the emphasis is on developing a consciousness of possibility. </li></ul><ul><li>The more you attach your value and humanity to those things outside of yourself, the more you give those things the power to control you. </li></ul><ul><li>The real measure of your humanity is in your soul. </li></ul>Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
