Life is too short for ignorance or hatred


Sitting around hoping your life is going to change is about as effective as drifting in an open sea expecting to get anywhere without picking up an oar. You need to start things happening, and you need to do so in ways that are decisive and proactive. Do whatever you have to do to prepare for the task -- start working out, start eating better or start meditating. Whatever you do, make sure that your mental and physical health are taken care of. To overlook these things now will compromise your future.

Lao-Tzu's 3 Treasures

Simplicity, Patience, and Compassion. Lao-tsu, the author of the Tao Te
Ching (The Book of the Way), said he had "just three things to teach: Simplicity,
Patience, and Compassion" (Chapter 67). He refers to them as treasures, and indeed they are. When we create simplicity in our lives, we live (as Thoreau) deliberately, We loose the sense that we must rush to our next thought or appointment, and as we do, we are more able to see the world and our place in it. To live with patience we come into "accord with the way things are." And, when we possess compassion,
we are able to "reconcile all beings in the world."
