Let my life be an example In my Successes and my Failures. Within me is the light of God, the wisdom of the ages if I can just have the courage to trust and believe. To look for that same God light in everyone I meet. Within me is the teachings of Buddha, Jesus, Gandhi, Mother Theresa and of all those who went before me; speaking of Love, Peace and Compassion.
It isn't the easy thing that is the right thing... It is not in my silent acceptance of what I know my heart that is wrong that will make a difference. It is by having the Courage; to look into the mirror of my life, and hold my life up as a mirror to others;. It is by my Word, Deed and Example that I will change the world.
Rid of craving and without clinging, an expert in the study of texts, and understanding the right sequence of the words, he may indeed be called "In his last body", "Great in wisdom" and a "Great man."
Buddha (563 - 483 BC)

When it's time to get dressed, put on your clothes. When you must walk, then walk. When you must sit, then sit. Just be your ordinary self in ordinary life, unconcerned in seeking for Buddhahood. When you're tired, lie down. The fool will laugh at you but the wise man will understand.
