Life - the Dalai Lama way...
Honest concern for others is the key factor in improving our day to day lives. When you are warm-hearted, there is no room for anger, jealousy or insecurity. A calm mind and self-confidence are the basis for happy and peaceful relations with each other. Healthy, happy families and a healthy peaceful nation are dependent on warm-heartedness.
People neglect and overlook compassion because they associate it with religion. Of course, everyone is free to choose whether they pay religion any regard, but to neglect compassion is a mistake because it is the source of our own well-being.
WHAT is Charity?
It is Silence - when your words would hurt.
It is Patience - when your neighbour is curt.
It is Deafness - when a scandal flows.
It is Thoughtfulness - for others' woes.
It is Promptness - when duty calls.
It is Courage - when misfortune falls.
God bless - Stafford
