What It Takes to RYS!

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.” – The Buddha   We’ve recently arrived home from the land, “Where humans awake and know their divinity.” Yes!

Each time we keep our word to ourselves and to others, these mini-moments of impeccability count. The incremental efforts
