In 2015, As Always, You Live In A Wonderful World

January 2, 2015

From the Buddha’s Dhammapada (freely translated by Stephen Mitchell)

Mind creates the world;

what you see arises with your thoughts.

If you speak and act with a confused mind,

trouble will follow you as certainly as a cart follows the ox that pulls it.

Mind creates the world;

what you see arises with your thoughts.

If you speak and act with a clear mind,

happiness will follow you as certainly as your own shadow in sunlight.

 

What DO you see when you look around? Is it a wonderful world? If it’s not, take heart.

 

It can be.
