Arousal Get Up and Going »


Enthusiastic Energetic Effort gains all Success:

The Blessed Buddha once said:
Friends, the lazy person dwells in misery, soiled by evil detrimental states.
Great is the personal advantage, which such one thereby neglects & looses.
But the energetic & enthusiastic person lives happily, secluded from evil
detrimental states, & great is the personal advantage, that he thereby wins.
It is not by the inferior, that the supreme is attained. Rather, it is only by a
truly supreme effort, that the supreme state is attained. Friends, this Noble
Life is a sublime juice! Therefore, friends, while this Dhamma Teaching is still
present here arouse your energy for the attainment of the yet unattained,
for achievement of the yet unachieved, for realization of the yet unrealized...
Considering your own future, friends, is enough motivation to make all effort
for reaching this goal; considering the good future of others, is also enough
motivation to do your best; considering the best of both, is more than enough
inspiration to strive for the supreme goal with diligent thoroughness!
Thus acutely and enthusiastically, friends, should you train yourselves!
