Don't Worry, Be

Why worry about what will happen after you are gone, 
because when you return to dust, 
you will feel nothing about praises or criticisms 

Why worry too much about your children 
for children will have their own destiny
 and find their own way 
Don't be at their back and call

Why expect too much from your children 
They would be busy with their jobs and commitments 
Uncaring children may fight over your assets 
They think they are rightful heirs to your wealth 
but you have no claims to theirs

Why trade in your health for wealth 
because your money may not buy you health 
When to stop making money and how much is enough
and it is never enough! 

Out of thousand hectares of good harvest 
you can only consume a little daily 
Out of all the houses you owned
you only need eight square meters of space to rest at night. 

So as long as you have enough food and money 
live happily
Do not compare with others for fame and social status 
But of happiness, health and longevity 
Why worry about things that you can't change 
because it won't change for you 

A day well lived is a gain 
we do not know what will happen the next minute 
Do not count your bridges before it even appear 
because you may not wake up tomorrow 
Live for Today, Now, this Moment 

Above all learn to cherish the goodness around …… 
and FRIENDS… …..they make you feel young and "wanted" 
Even when you are alone 
No, you are not alone because the Buddha is with you. 

Smile in time of Goodness, smile in time of Adversity 
Be thankful for the Good, and that of the Bad ! 
 and train your Mind
