I wrote this the night before taking the Precepts in Sri Lanka, July 2014 and repeated and re-committed to it everyday since.
This is what a constant, rigorous spiritual practice means to me.
I am responsible for the cultivation of wisdom and the practice of mindfulness in my own life.
Every day is my opportunity to add more love to the world by discovering the parts of me that can benefit others.
Every moment is an invitation for me to observe my breath and move to the middle path.
Within me is pure beauty and grace and to express my gratitude for these treasures, ever day I re-commit to living the 5 precepts to the best of my ability.
Thru the practice of loving-kindness towards myself and all living beings, I accept my responsibility to add more love to the world and will use all my actions for the benefit of humanity.
