Why are we meditating? What are we seeking? Does this look familiar? I don't know the original source, if someone does, send it along and we will provide proper credit.
If you can start the day without caffeine or pep pills,
If you can be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food everyday and be grateful for it,
