According to Buddha

May everyone be happy and safe, and may their hearts be filled with joy… Just as a mother loves and protects her only child at the risk of her own life, we should cultivate boundless love to offer to all living beings in the entire cosmos. Let our boundless love pervade the whole universe, above, below, and across. Whether standing or walking, sitting or lying, as long as we are awake, we should maintain this mindfulness of love in our own heart. This is the noblest way of living.

It is very good to recite the mantra 
Om mani padme hum,
but while you are doing it,

for the meaning of the six syllables is great and vast.
om mani padme hum x1000 (at least)

According to Buddha

On the mundane level, the clear comprehension of impermanence, suffering and non-self will bring us a saner outlook on life. It will free us from unrealistic expectations, bestow a courageous acceptance of suffering and failure and protect us against the lure of deluded assumptions and beliefs. In our quest for the supra-mundane comprehension of the three characteristics will be indispensable.

but i’m coming down the mountain again
get the word to all my good-time friends
the fishing was fine but fishing comes to an end
i’m coming down the mountain again

According to Buddha

“And what, bhikkhus, are the seven principles of non-decline? 

 As long as the bhikkhus develop the perception of impermanence, only growth is to be expected for them, not decline. 
As long as they develop the perception of non-self . . . 
. . . . the perception of attractiveness . . .
. . . . the perception of danger . . .
. . . . the perception of abandoning . . .
. . . . the perception of dispassion . . .

Only growth is to be expected for them, not decline.”

The spiritual journey is individual, highly personal. It can’t be organized or regulated. It isn’t true that everyone should follow one path. Listen to your own truth.
