Do what you can to help the
living, and dedicate the merit of your practice to the dead. We may be powerless
to change the past, but we do have the power to shape the present and the future
by what we do, moment to moment, right now. And in maintaining our intention to
be as skillful as possible in thought, word, and deed, we’ll find the only true
refuge there is.
- Thanissaro Bhikkhu "What
We've Been Practicing For"
