"I vow to understand living beings and their suffering, to cultivate compassion and loving kindness,

and to practice joy and equanimity.

I vow to offer joy to one person in the morning and to help relieve the grief of one person in the afternoon.

I vow to live simply and sanely, content with just a few possessions, and to keep my body healthy.

I vow to let go of all worry and anxiety in order to be light and free.

I am aware that I owe so much to my parents, teachers, friends and all beings.

I vow to be worthy of their trust, to practice wholeheartedly,

so that understanding and compassion will flower,

and I can help living beings be free from their suffering. "

from Refuge Prayer by Thich Nhat-Hanh

I mean it but oh dear God help me.
