Thoughts for meditation, contemplation, and reflection

Our spiritual training ground is among people;
this is where we can diligently cultivate the Four
With sincerity, we practice giving;
we widely open our hearts and embrace the
Three Spheres of Emptiness.
With kindness, we practice loving speech;
we speak good words and give each other blessings.
With timeliness, we engage in beneficial conduct; together, we walk the path of goodness, bringing benefit to both ourselves and others.
With good affinities, we work together;
we perfectly unify matters and principles and together strive to improve ourselves.
When we treat people with sincerity, we bring ourselves dignity and virtue.
