Sweetening Quotes
Don't worry about the world coming to an
end today.  It's already tomorrow in

Do not anticipate trouble
or  worry about what may never happen.
Keep in the sunlight.

The secret of health for both mind and body is
not to mourn for the past,
worry about the future,
or anticipate troubles,
but to live in  the present moment
wisely and earnestly.

Help us to be immune from doubts,
notions, and illusions
which shroud our heart
and prevent us from exploring
the  hidden mysteries.

In dwelling, live close to the ground.
In thinking, keep to the simple.
In conflict, be fair and generous.
In governing, don't try to control.
In work, do what you enjoy.
In family life, be completely present.

Take time to listen  to what  is said
without words,
to obey the law too subtle to be written,
to worship the unnameable,
and to embrace the unformed.

Love is a fruit in season at all times,
and within  reach of every hand.

Everything that irritates us about other people
can lead us to self-understanding.

Now may every living thing,
young or old, weak or strong,
living near or far, known or unknown,
living or departed or yet unborn,
may every living thing
be full of bliss.

I will be truthful.
I will suffer no injustice.
I will be free from fear.
I will not use force.
I will be of good will to all men.

If your compassion
does not include yourself,
it is incomplete.

People don't realize
how important it is
to wake up every morning
with a song in your heart.

...Krishnamurti was also being metaphorical:  
The song stands for a sense of joy in
existence, a joy that is free of any good or
bad choices.  To ask this of yourself is both
the simplest thing and the most difficult.  
But don't let it slip your mind in the
morning, no matter how complex your life
becomes.  Keep before you the vision of
freeing your mind, and expect that when you
succeed at doing this, you will be greeted by
a stream of joy.
