When someone offends you for no reason, sometimes, you feel hurt.
But you do not hold grudge against him. For you have a good heart.
When he hurts you, you won’t hurt him back. You say peace.
And you certainly won’t fall apart, but you stay in one piece.
If you keep on being kindhearted to him in spite of being mean to you, he senses
That you are more magnanimous and wiser than him then he comes to his senses.
When he promises you something and he doesn’t keep his promise, you won’t feel sorrow,
Knowing well that he is such a man who is deciding today what another will do tomorrow.
Live within your means. Don’t be extravagant. And do your best no to borrow.
For there is no guarantee that you will be able to pay off your debts tomorrow.
You live within your means. You may lend money but you do not borrow.
Likewise, you take but money you have earned by the sweat of your brow.
Be generous. Remember, giving does not diminish you fortune. it makes it grow.
Nevertheless, accept not money you haven't earned with the sweat of your brow.
He hurts you one time. You graciously forgive him, because you are so kind,
Misinterpreting you kindness, he hurts you again. He thinks you don’t mind.
Hate and revenge make your condition worse. It would not do you good to inflict
On others what you suffered. Only love and forgiveness can resolve your conflict.
No matter how hurt, don't hold grudge. That makes you suffer more. It's healthier to forgive.
Keep on repeating "I forgive' until you feel really at peace. Not only an impression you give.
Don’t take medicine unless necessary. Healing through prayer and meditation,
With no side and after effect, is much preferable to treatment with medication.
Even if you think it is impossible at the beginning, say ‘I forgive”. Repeat it often.
In the final analysis, you’ll be amazed. Without realizing it, your heart will soften.
When you are sad and mad, act as if you are happy and calm. You will be tending
To feel really so in the final analysis. You will see; not only, feigning, pretending.
