Here are your Happiness Mantras which you can contemplate for a week. This practice will lead you to deeper inner silence. If continued for 52 weeks, you awaken the Buddha within.
The fool sleeps as if he were already dead, but the master is awake and he lives forever. He watches. He is clear.
Be quiet, and loving and fearless. Three things Buddha says: Be quiet—learn to be silent more and more—and loving, because if your silence is not loving it will make you insensitive. Then your silence will be that of a cemetery—dull, dead.
Quieten your mind. Reflect. Watch. Try to quieten your mind, reflect, watch, and see yourself what happens: freedom, bliss, truth, wisdom, innocence, purity…
Do not turn away what is given you, nor reach away what is given to others, lest you disturb your quietness.
O slave of desire, float upon the steam. Little spider, stick to your web, or else abandon your sorrows for the way.
In all things, be a master of what you do and what you say and think. Be free.
And wisdom is sweet, and freedom. If you are authentic, if you are compassionate, if you are meditative, then if there is a God he will come to you; you need not go in search for him.
It is sweet to live arduously, and to master yourself.
See what is. See what is not. Follow the true way.
If you cannot quieten yourself, what will you ever learn? How will you become free?
