An Open Mind

I’ve slept for twelve hours, off and on, and woke up with a mind clear and calm. No thoughts are pressing forward, in fact I wonder if I am capable of any complex or important thoughts at all.

I have forgotten all I know, or thought I knew of how things are. I am starting over with only one thing that I ask. How can I be helpful to this world as it is now? I open my heart and function within the framework of the Seven Virtues: tranquility, control, listening, concentration, renunciation, endurance and faith. That’s all, just that.
