Shaping your thinking in beneficial ways ~ 14th Dalai Lama

Each morning after you wake up, try to shape your thinking in beneficial ways before you begin your day. You can think, for instance, ‘May my body, my speech, and my mind be used in a more compassionate way, so that they become a service to others.’ This is something I usually do. It makes life more meaningful. Likewise, examine your mind in the evening before you go to bed. Review the way you spent your day, and check whether it was worthwhile.
