The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

How enlightened are you?

If you can live without caffeine,
If you can be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining,
If you can understand when your loved ones
are too busy to give you any time,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
If you can ignore a friend’s limited education
and never correct him or her,
If you can resist treating a rich friend
better than a poor friend,
If you can face the world without lies and deceit,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without liquor,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
If you can honestly say that deep in your heart
you have no prejudice against creed, color,
religion, gender preference, or politics,
– Then you have almost reached the same
level of spiritual development as your dog!
