It's Wise To BE...

BE ...
Be understanding to all people ... friends and foes alike.
Be responsible and committed to a worthy cause.
Be courageous enough to face the ups and downs of life.
Be able to acknowledge your weaknesses and mistakes.
Be generous to those who are in real need.
Be simple and contented.
Be discerning enough to know that you do not and cannot know everything.
Be aware that nothing is certain in a conditioned world.
Be willing to share your joys with others.
Be patient and calm to face with sorrows.
Be able to learn from the mistakes of others.
Be a follower of the Wise Ones . ... people who have little greed, hatred and delusion.
Be able to feel happy when others are successful.
Be compassionate towards others at the unskillful things they may at times do.
Be able to rise up after any fall or slip.
Be sure of your final goal ... the complete liberation of your mind.
Be kind and loving to all sentient beings.
Be able to accept and love yourself.
Be determined to develop your compassion and wisdom.
With Metta,
Bro. Oh Teik Bin
