Think of yourself as a spiritual warrior. What is the danger at hand? What is our true protection? Where is safety? Be ever aware. Stay close to the Dhamma and you will inevitably grow close to the Buddha. Uphold virtue foremost through wholesome friendships. Purify intention, action, and speech, at rest or work or during mental cultivation, and you will embody the noble wisdom and compassion of the Buddha, setting your feet in his very footprints.
