Use what you have.
If you don’t have what you need or want, don’t worry and don’t be too anxious to have more.
Just try to appreciate whatever you have –your body, your mind, your material things, your sensations, your feelings, your knowledge–whatever you are doing.
Be kind to yourself.
Take time to re-evaluate what a fortunate opportunity you have to contemplate the tremendous pain and suffering and confusion of others.
Whenever you are depressed or feel hopeless or desperate, use the energies within your meditation. And at other times, when you are extremely joyful and positive, do not become too attached.
In other words, whatever happens, up or down, use your experience to learn and to become more aware.
