Be a Master of Your Life and Live in bliss and Joy

 

MASTER YOURSELF ACCORDING TO THE LAW.
THIS IS THE SIMPLE TEACHING OF THE AWAKENED.

THE RAIN COULD TURN TO GOLD AND STILL YOUR THIRST WOULD NOT BE SLAKED.
DESIRE IS UNQUENCHABLE OR IT ENDS IN TEARS, EVEN IN HEAVEN.

HE WHO WISHES TO AWAKE CONSUMES HIS DESIRES JOYFULLY.

IN HIS FEAR A MAN MAY SHELTER IN MOUNTAINS OR IN FORESTS,
IN GROVES OF SACRED TREES OR IN SHRINES.
BUT HOW CAN HE HIDE THERE FROM HIS SORROW?

HE WHO SHELTERS IN THE WAY AND TRAVELS WITH THOSE WHO FOLLOW IT
COMES TO SEE THE FOUR GREAT TRUTHS.

CONCERNING SORROW, THE BEGINNING OF SORROW, THE EIGHTFOLD WAY,
AND THE END OF SORROW.

THEN AT LAST HE IS SAFE. HE HAS SHAKEN OFF SORROW.
HE IS FREE.

THE AWAKENED ARE FEW AND HARD TO FIND.
HAPPY IS THE HOUSE WHERE A MAN AWAKES.

BLESSED IS HIS BIRTH. BLESSED IS THE TEACHING OF THE WAY.
BLESSED IS THE UNDERSTANDING AMONG THOSE
WHO FOLLOW IT, AND BLESSED IS THEIR DETERMINATION.
AND BLESSED ARE THEY WHO REVERE THE MAN WHO AWAKES AND FOLLOWS THE WAY.

THEY ARE FREE FROM FEAR. THEY ARE FREE.

THEY HAVE CROSSED OVER THE RIVER OF SORROW.

MASTER YOURSELF ACCORDING TO THE LAW. THIS IS THE SIMPLE TEACHING OF THE AWAKENED.

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. LIVE IN JOY, WITHOUT POSSESSIONS, LIKE THE SHINING ONES.

THE WINNER SOWS HATRED BECAUSE THE LOSER SUFFERS.
LET GO OF WINNING AND LOSING AND FIND JOY.

THERE IS NO FIRE LIKE PASSION, NO CRIME LIKE HATRED, NO SORROW LIKE SEPARATION,
NO SICKNESS LIKE HUNGER, 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 THE WAY.

HOW JOYFUL TO LOOK UPON THE AWAKENED AND TO KEEP COMPANY WITH THE WISE.

HOW LONG THE ROAD TO THE MAN WHO TRAVELS WITH A FOOL.

BUT WHOEVER FOLLOWS THOSE WHO FOLLOW THE WAY
DISCOVERS HIS FAMILY, AND IS FILLED WITH JOY.

FOLLOW THEN THE SHINING ONES,
THE WISE, THE AWAKENED, THE LOVING,
FOR THEY KNOW HOW TO WORK AND FORBEAR.
FOLLOW THEM AS THE MOON FOLLOWS THE PATH OF THE STARS.
