Beginning the day properly by setting one’s intention
Upon awakening, even before getting out of bed, set your day’s intention and aims by reciting this morning aspiration.
Today I am fortunate to be alive,
To have a precious human life,
I will not waste it.
I will use all my energies to develop myself,
To expand my heart out to others,
To achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings.
Today I am going to have kind thoughts towards others,
I am not going to get angry or think badly about others,
Today I’m going to benefit others as much as I can.
~ His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
