From the Heart

Phenomena are preceded by the heart, ruled by the heart, made of the heart. 

If you speak or act with a corrupted heart, then suffering follows you –as the wheel of the cart, the track of the ox that pulls it. 

Phenomena are preceded by the heart, ruled by the heart, made of the heart. 

If you speak or act with a calm, bright heart, then happiness follows you, like a shadow that never leaves.
