Live in Joy,
in Love,

Even among those who hate.

Live in Joy,
in Health,

Even among the afflicted.

Live in Joy,

in Peace,

Even among the troubled.

Look within.
Be still.

Free from fear and attachment,

Know the sweet joy of the way.

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.


Are you quiet?

Calm your body.

Calm 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.
