Starting Your Day with Intention 尊い人生

January 11, 2018

 

You can't be enraptured by the beauty of a sunset like this every morning but you can start any day by reflecting on your values and purpose in living, renewing your resolve to be more mindful, compassionate, and responsible. Reading these words of His Holiness the Dalai Lama first thing in the morning starts me on the path of heartfulness in everyday life. "I have a precious human life. I am not going to waste it." Reflecting on what I could do with my life, the last two lines strike me: "I am going to benefit others as much as I can."

 

When I feel all alone in the world I recall the words of Ram Dass: "Caring for someone else is one way to combat loneliness." I feel a renewed commitment to connect with others, to reassure myself that other hearts exist; to affirm my own existence through the presence of others.

 

 

 

 尊い人生

  

 毎日、目を覚ました時にこう思ってください。

「今日、私は幸福にも目を覚ますことができた。

 私は生きている、

 私には尊い人生がある。

 私はそれをムダにはしまい。

 自分のすべてのエネルギーを使って自分を成長させていこう。

 心を他の人へと広げよう。

 あらゆる命のために悟りを得よう。

 他の人々にたいする親切な気持ちを持とう。

 怒ったり、悪く思ったりしないようにしよう。

 でき得るかぎり人々のために尽くすようにしよう」
