Be a Light

"Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder.
Help someone's soul heal. 
                                  Walk out of your house like a shepherd."                               


I have just three things to teach:
Simplicity, Patience, Compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.
Simple in actions and thoughts,
you return to the source of being.
Patient with both friends and enemies,
you accord with the way things are.
Compassionate toward yourself, you reconcile all beings in the world.    

Tao te Ching (trans. Stephen Mitchell)
