This beautiful poem is a must-read! ~ Bette A. Stevens http://www.4writersandreaders.com
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 living in the way.
There is no fire like greed, No crime like hatred, No sorrow like separation,
No sickness like hunger of heart, And no joy like the joy of freedom.
Health, contentment and trust Are your greatest possessions, And freedom your greatest joy.
Look within. Be still. Free from fear and attachment, Know the sweet joy of living in the way.
teachings of Buddha from: The Dhammapada
