Stonepeace (981-990)


[981]

Only suffer for something.
Never suffer for nothing.

[982]

Be true to truth.
Be true to you.
Be true to all.

[983]

Do what you need at work,
but never be worked up.
Raise issues when needed,
but never raise your temper.

[984]

If you have trust in a teacher,
do follow that taught.
If you lack trust in a teacher,
why follow that taught?

[985]

Even a moment’s heroism
for the sake of others
becomes a significant part of eternity.

[986]

Being without fear or favour is
being without aversion or attachment,
as powered by delusion.

[987]

Ironically, extremists see those who
walk the Bodhisattva path as ‘extremists’,
not knowing they are on the Middle Path.

[988]

What not confessed
by yourself soon
might be ‘confessed’
by others later.

[989]

To know if you are
a blessing or curse to the world,
ask others if they
would prefer more like you.

[990]

Never simply trust those
who simply ask for your trust,
who simply do nothing else
to deserve your trust.
