Don’t cause your own suffering by getting overly involved with what you see, hear, smell, taste, touch, or think.
Make friends with reliable people, do not be swayed by folks just because they are popular or charismatic.
The hustle and bustle of big cities might seem attractive, it moves quickly there. Try not to get caught up in it.
Learn to appreciate the quiet places of the earth. Go out and listen to mother nature from time to time.
Try to enjoy things, take your time. Be moderate in the things you want, learn to control your desires.
Pay attention to your body, but don’t become infatuated with it. Your body is impermanent and you must maintain it if you want it to work well for you.
Maintain your mind as well; it is not separate from your body. Do not dwell in unhappy thoughts. Sharpen your mind like a razor, do not allow yourself to get fooled by your identity or another.
Don’t be stuck up, comprehensively understand that you are interconnected with everyone and everything else in the universe. If you understand this teaching, you will be well and happy.
