This morning I was thinking about my wishes and hopes for the new year when I remembered a saying I heard many years ago. That saying is from India, I learned, and goes like this:
A healthy person has 10,000 wishes, a sick person only one.
There must be many millions of people who all have the same wish. May many of them come true.
When I think of the people who have only one wish it is only logical to also think of other beings who wish to survive, species on the verge of extinction, forests getting wiped out for cattle ranches, and so on.
May all beings be safe
May all beings be healthy
May all beings be happy
May all beings be free
