Om Aha Mani Foundation Editor's Advice

I received this chainmail recently, and feel that some of it is worth reading - hits and misses. How about writing your own, or adding to this one! My own personal advice is:

"Don't believe anything that you don't want to, and certainly never blindly believe everything that you read! I feel that is better to make up our own minds concerning our lives. But take advice when and where you feel it is appropriate."

  • Be harmless
  • Be good
  • Be better
  • Grow toward the light
  • Improve everyday
  • Lots of love, peace, joy and understanding to you all.
