The Important Things

1.

These are the important things in life: Cultivating a good heart.

Cultivating a good mind.

Cultivating good deeds.

2.

The unimportant things are used and then used up. The important things are used but never used up.

3.

When the heart, mind and deeds are right you are good.

4.

When two hearts are in tune, the universe sings.

5.

A heart never in tune causes the universe to tremble.

6.

A happy heart is a shared heart.

7.

An educated heart is a generous heart.

8.

An empty heart rattles.

It is the noise of the self in love with itself.

9.

When heart, mind and deed harmonize, the world becomes good. In a good world, everyone can be happy.
