When we are aware that each moment of each day,
each gesture and step we take,
is truly mystical and full of wonder,
we will live our lives with greater thought and care.
We will also have greater respect and appreciation
for the lives of others.

We must put down firm roots; we must be strong.
Inner strength is a prerequisite for happiness,
a prerequisite for upholding justice and one’s beliefs.
One of the Buddha’s titles is “He Who Can Forbear.”
To courageously endure, persevere and overcome all difficulties-
-the Buddha is the ultimate embodiment of the virtue of forbearance.
The power of faith gives us the strength to weather and survive any storm.
Perseverance is the essence of a Buddha.
