Control And Choice (Jan 1)

Further Reflections


See clearly what you can control,
and control it well.
See clearly what you cannot control,
and let it go.


The more you control well
what you can control,
the more what you cannot control well
can be controlled better.


You cannot always choose your situation,
but you can always choose your attitude,
which can better the situation.


Good and evil arises within,
just as purity is realised within.


Waste no time
on that unchangeable.
Focus all efforts
on that changeable.


Accept the unchangeable.
Change the changeable.
