Path to Peace – Week 4

Path to Peace Week 4

 

Day 1

Sincerity in words engenders trust.

Sincerity in thought engenders pure living.

Sincerity in generosity engenders loving-kindness.

 

Day 2

May ignorance give way to understanding,

May hatred yield to compassion,

May war surrender to peace.

 

Day 3

The absence of expectations results in the reduction of disappointments.

 

Day 4

Contentment is born of the capacity,

To love impartially,

To listen uncritically,

To give unconditionally,

To forgive unreservedly,

To laugh at oneself unaffectedly.

 

Day 5

Gently and impartially comfort the uneasy,

Give selflessly to those who are in need,

Teach without reserve those who wish to learn.

 

Day 6

Excessive desires lead us to put our own interests before those of others.

They drain our goodness, pollute our heats, immerse us in animosity.

 

Day 7

Dreams fade,

Bubbles pop,

Dew evaporates,

Lightning ceases,

Nothing is permanent.
