Buddhism Day by Day: Make goals

“Make goals. Whether big or small, work toward realizing them. You must be serious about and dedicated to your goals — you’ll get nowhere if you just treat them like jokes. An earnest, dedicated spirit shines like a diamond and moves people’s hearts. That is because a brilliant flames burn within.

If we are sincere, people will understand our intentions, and our positive qualities will shine forth. It is pointless to be caught up in outward appearances.

The German poet Johann von Goethe writes: ‘How may one get to know oneself? Never by contemplation, only, indeed, by action. Seek to do your duty, and you will know at once how it is with you.”
