Stonepeace (991-1000)


[991]

Truly, ‘sincere’ prayers
yet to inspire sincere action
are yet to be truly sincere.

[992]

Dangerous to themselves and others
are relentless breakers of precepts,
who are non-believers of karma,
who are nevertheless in its clutches.

[993]

Be here now… till there later.
Be here now… there later then.

[994]

To learn much faster from all,
never take things personally,
while missing their universal lessons.

[995]

If that warned applies to you,
why not beware as warned?
If that warned applies not to you,
why be bothered at all?

[996]

To stay simple is to keep the focus.
To stay focused is to do the significant.

[997]

If the most sincere ‘you’ meets you now,
what advice would ‘you’ offer to you…
and why do you not sincerely heed it now?

[998]

Do you really own
what you really owe,
or does it really own you?

[999]

A smart mind
without a good heart
is still heartless.

A good heart
without a wise mind
is still mindless.

[1000]

Those who fail
ever more properly
are those who succeed
ever more properly.
