Contemplation: The Goal of Every Act

After reviewing the guidelines for practice, take the following as your contemplation:
The goal of every act is happiness itself,
Though, even with great wealth, it's rarely found.
So take your pleasure in the qualities of others.
Let them be a heartfelt joy to you.
Santideva, The Way of the Bodhisattva, p. 73
