I follow the Dali Lama on twitter. Yep. He tweets everyday an hour before I wake up. It is positive words of wisdom and compassion that I love starting my day with. A nice reminder that no matter what someone does or says you should show them compassion and love. Something I must admit I often find challenging. Especially as long as Rick Perry is making commercials reminding me about how I have to celebrate Christmas in fear every year. Damn war on religion.
So I thought I would pass along some of my favorite Dali Lama quotes to pass along the kindness this holiday season
“Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.”
“I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest. I do not judge the universe.”
“If you can, help others; if you cannot do that, at least do not harm them.”
“In the practice of tolerance, one’s enemy is the best teacher.”
“There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophies. My brain and my heart are my temples; my philosophy is kindness.”
