Approaching the end of eight-and-a-half decades living, for me five truths seem self-evident. None is original. I’m too lazy to look up the sources.
- Happiness is our default. Suffering is a choice.
- Now, this instant, is the only time there is.
- I only control my thoughts, muscles, and impulses.
- I act out of ignorance, fear, and anger, or wisdom, courage, and love.
- I’m only here to help.
