“EVERY DAY, THINK AS YOU WAKE UP,
TODAY I AM FORTUNATE TO HAVE WOKEN UP,
I AM ALIVE, I HAVE A PRECIOUS HUMAN LIFE.
I AM NOT GOING TO WASTE IT.
I AM GOING TO USE ALL OF MY ENERGIES TO DEVELOP MYSELF
TO EXPAND MY HEART OUT TO OTHERS.
TO ACHIEVE ENLIGHTENMENT FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL BEINGS.
I AM GOING TO HAVE KIND THOUGHTS TOWARDS OTHERS.
I AM NOT GOING TO GET ANGRY
OR THINK BADLY ABOUT OTHERS.
I AM GOING TO BENEFIT OTHERS AS MUCH AS I CAN.”

H.H. THE XIVTH DALAI LAMA
