Precepts

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA.

“He who knows

the precepts by heart,

but fails to practice them,

Is like unto one

who lights a lamp

and then shuts his eyes.”

.

~ Nagarjuna

1. Do not kill
2. Do not steal
3. Do not indulge in sexual misconduct
4. Do not make false speech
5. Do not take intoxicants

I know, I know, I know,

but, I just forgot to do it.

Forgetting is not an excuse.

Today, no excuses necessary,

just practice what you know

and seek to do the will of your loving Higher Power.

Life is to practice doing the next right thing.

Life is to live and love in the here and now.
