From the translator’s Journal ~ a little happiness ~

When I feel cold,
to be warmed up
makes me happy,

When I have aches and pains,
to be eased from them
makes me happy.

When I am suffering,
to be released from it
makes me happy.

When I can’t control it,
I want to have the serenity
to accept it.

When I thought of this,
I was given a wisdom
not to make a cause for these.
I am happy and grateful.
