Traditional Phrase: All beings are the owners of their karma. Their happiness and unhappiness depend upon their actions, not upon my wishes for them.
Adam’s Version: I am responsible for my actions. I am responsible for my heart. May I find happiness. May I find peace exactly where I am.
I wish you happiness, but… you are responsible for your own actions, you are responsible for your own heart. May you find peace exactly where you are.
The Buddha on Equanimity
As a solid mass of rock
Is not stirred by the wind,
So a sage is not moved
By praise and blame.
As a deep lake
Is clear and undisturbed,
So a sage becomes clear
Upon hearing the Dharma.
Virtuous people always let go.
They don’t prattle about pleasures and desires.
Touched by happiness and then by suffering,
The sage shows no sign of being elated or depressed.
