"Yes, I have Advanced Multiple Sclerosis.
And I'm going to be happy, anyway…

"I want YOU to be happy, as well.
May all beings be happy..

May you be held in the heart of loving kindness.

"To receive with grace may be the greatest giving,
There's no way I can separate the two...
When you give to me, I give you my receiving,
When you take from me, I feel so given to...

I never feel more given to
than when you take from me —
when you understand the joy I feel
giving to you…

And you know my giving isn’t done
to put you in my debt,
but because I want to live the love
I feel for you

To receive with grace
may be the greatest giving.
There’s no way I can
separate the two…

When you give to me,
I give you my receiving.
When you take from me, I feel so
given to… “
