Master Your Senses

BunksBunks Australia Veteran

Master your senses,
What you taste and smell,
What you see, what you hear.

In all things be a master
Of what you do and say and think.
Be free.

Are you quiet?
Quieten your body.
Quieten your mind.

By your own efforts
Waken yourself, watch yourself,
And live joyfully.

Follow the truth of the way.
Reflect upon it.
Make it your own.
Live it.
It will always sustain you.

from the DHAMMAPADA - translated by Thomas Byrom

    "Our sorrows and wounds are healed only when we touch them with compassion."
    The Dhammapada

    I think I might trade in my iPada for a dhammaPada ;)
