A Precious Human Life

“Every day, think as you wake up[:] Today I am fortunate to have woken up.

I am alive, I have a precious human life.

I am not [emphasis added] going to waste it.

I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others, to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings.

I am going to have kind thoughts towards others.

I am not going to get angry, or think badly about others.

I am going to benefit others as much as I can.”

[His Holiness the XIVth Dalai Lama]
