My Friend Buddha said:
"The thought manifests as the word;
The word manifests as the deed;
The deed develops into habit;
and habit hardens into character.
So watch the thought and its ways with care,
And let it spring from love
Born out of concern for all beings."
This I try to practice every day, again and again
with an abundance of self forgiveness
for my many frailties and failings.
This is how I make my peace.
