May I be a protector to those without protection,
A leader for those who journey,
And a boat, a bridge, a passage
For those desiring the further shore.

May the pain of every living creature
Be completely cleared away.

May I be the doctor and the medicine
And may I be the nurse
For all sick beings in the world
Until everyone is healed.

Just like space
And the great elements such as earth,
May I always support the life
Of all the boundless creatures.

And until they pass away from pain
May I also be the source of life
For all the realms of varied beings
That reach unto the ends of space.

What You See Is What You Get

Things always seem to turn out best for those people
who can make the best out of the way things turn out.
It's not the situation, it's your reaction to the situation.
You cannot always control your circumstances.
But you can control your own thoughts.

Your life at any time can become difficult.
Your life at any time can become easy.
It all depends upon how you adjust yourself to life.
Positive thinking is simply reacting positively to a negative situation.
So try to see the good in every situation.

The reality of your life may result from many outside factors,
none of which you can control.
Your attitude, however, reflects the ways in which you evaluate
what is happening to you.

There is nothing either good or bad,
only your thinking makes it so.
