Guarding Against Misfortune

"It is wrong to think that misfortunes come from the east or from the west; they originate within ones own mind. Therefore, it is foolish to guard against misfortunes from the external world and leave the inner mind uncontrolled."

----Shakyamuni Buddha

Live in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes

It's definately true! Misfortune arises in the uncontrolled mind and slowly dissipates in the controlled mind.
