Cherishing Others

1. May I always cherish all beings 

With the resolve to accomplish for them 

The highest good that is more precious

Than any wish-fulfilling jewel.

When I have been able to put this into practice the results have been outstanding. But, when I an overtaken by selfish desires, resentment and laziness it can seem almost impossible to cherish any one at all, let alone more than mysel. May I overcome my preoccupation with short term, sensual gains and devote myself wholly to the practice.
