WHICH FLOOR DO YOU LIVE ON?

I
Which floor do you live on? In life, there are three
floors: The first floor is material living, the second is
mental living, and the third is spiritual living.
II
Have not a chaotic heart; do not be trapped in
emotions. Fear not the future, dwell not in the past.
This is the way to live in peace.
III
With a narrow mind, all small matters are big. With
a broad mind, all big matters are small. See past the
vicissitudes of life with a peaceful and unaffected
heart.

IV
If you love, all things in life become lovable. If you
hate, all things in life become hateable. If you are
grateful, then everything becomes worthy of gratitude.

If you mature, then everything in the world also
matures. It is not the world that chooses you; you
are the one who chooses this world. And so, as
there is nowhere to hide, nowhere to escape to,
we may as well be joyous. As there is no pure land,
we may as well calm our hearts. As one’s wishes
have not been fulfilled, we may as well feel relieved.
