A Precious Human Life

Everyday, think as you wake up,
today I am fortunate to have woken up.
I am alive; I have a precious human life.
I am not going to waste it.
I am going to use
all my energies to develop myself
to expand my heart out to others,
to achieve enlightenment for
the benefit of all beings.
I am going to have kind
thoughts towards others;
I am not going to get angry
or think badly of others.
I am going to benefit others
as much as i can.

- His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
