Go in peace. Live simply

Go in peace. Live simply, at home in yourself.

Be just in your word, just in deed.

Remember the depth of your own compassion.

Do not forget your power in the days of your powerlessness.

Do not desire with desire to be wealthier than your peers, and never stint your hand of charity.

Practice forbearance in all you do. Speak the truth or speak not.

Take care of your body, be good to it, it is a good gift.

Crave peace for all peoples in this world, beginning with yourselves, and go as you go with the dream of that peace set firm in your heart.
