Just that you do the right thing.

At times like this, I like to reflect on anicca and the fact that there is no refuge in samsāra. Constantly buffeted by the eight worldly winds, it is our task to practice the Dhamma and do right even in the face of seeming injustice.

And, by right, I don’t mean seeking to put others in order.


I mean to keep a mind imbued with loving kindness for all beings.

May all beings have happiness and the causes of happiness.

May all beings create merit and enjoy the fruits of their good deeds.
