Today’s Inspirational Quote:

Jay’s Tantra

You shall not unleash your angers onto others.
You shall be brave in the face of danger.
You shall speak falsehoods.
You shall offer your service to those in need.
You shall live your life full of love to the best of your abilities.
You shall take responsibility for your mistakes.
You shall take only that which is given.
You shall not cause chaos or mayhem.
You shall detach yourself from dark desires.
You shall care for your family.
