"The Art of Peace"
Study how water flows in a valley
stream, smoothly and freely
between the rocks. Also learn from
holy books and wise people.
Everything - even mountains,
rivers, plants and trees -
should be your teacher.
T'ai Chi Ch'uan
"The Supreme Ultimate"
Knowing others is intelligence,
knowing yourself is true wisdom.
Mastering others is strength,
Mastering yourself is true power.
At least for today:
Don't get angry.
Don't be grievous.
Express your thanks.
Be diligent in your business.
Be kind to others.
For improvement of mind and body.
Usui Reiki Ryoho.
