Just for today - Only that in you which is me can hear what I'm saying.

Just for today I will try to live through this day only, and not tackle all my problems at once. I can do something for twelve hours that would appall me if I felt that I had to keep it up for a lifetime.

Just for today I will be happy. This assumes to be true what Abraham Lincoln said, that "Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be."

Just for today I will adjust myself to what is, and not try to adjust everything to my own desires. I will take my "luck" as it comes, and fit myself to it.

Just for today I will try to strengthen my mind. I will study. I will learn something useful. I will not be a mental loafer. I will read something that requires effort, thought and concentration.

Just for today I will exercise my soul in three ways: I will do somebody a good turn, and not get found out; if anybody knows of it, it will not count. I will do at least two things I don't want to do - just for exercise. I will not show anyone that my feelings are hurt; they may be hurt, but today I will not show it.

Just for today I will be agreeable. I will look as well as I can, dress becomingly, keep my voice low, be courteous, criticize not one bit. I won't find fault with anything, nor try to improve or regulate anybody but myself.

Just for today I will have a program. I may not follow it exactly, but I will have it. I will save myself from two pests: hurry and indecision.

Just for today I will have a quiet half hour all by myself and relax. During this half hour, sometime, I will try to get a better perspective of my life.

Just for today I will be unafraid. Especially I will not be afraid to enjoy what is beautiful and to believe that as I give to the world, so the world will give to me.

Those who do not understand the distinctions 
between the two truths (relative and 
Absolute) do not understand the profound truth 
embodied in the Buddha’s message. 

Et av meditasjons maleriene i olje. 

The foolish reject what they see, 
not what they think;
the wise reject what they think, 
not what they see.
—Huang Po


True seeking is not to seek for something, but to pay attention with an open-hearted interest in the expression of the universe. It is to allow the immediacy of this life to express fully. With this openness, the filters of believed-in persistence and separation have vanished.

I am a part of all that I have met. ~Alfred Lord Tennyson

Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the wise. Seek what they sought. ~Matsuo Basho
