In celebration of the Dalai Lama’s 80th birthday, journalist Ann Curry asked him, “What would you like to say to the social media world, especially to the young people?”

“Pay more attention to your own mind, your emotion…so that your life can be more peaceful, [more] happier…if you pay attention to your inner value, no matter what is the surrounding situation, you can keep peace of mind.”
“…constant fear and anger is actually eating our immune system…In order to achieve healthy body we also need healthy mind.”
-Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso
How can you not be angry if you’re always being pushed to your limits? Or how can you be compassionate to a grumpy stranger or a backstabber friend?
I think mastering your emotion is one of the hardest thing to do but taking it from the Guru, it is possible.
This is definitely easier said than done but if compassion brings forth inner peace and strength and good relationship, KEEP CALM and SHAKE IT OFF.
“Anyone can love a rose but it takes a great deal to love a leaf. It is ordinary to love the beautiful but beautiful to love the ordinary.”
I saw a quote that went in to something like this this morning.. and I was like, “wow… this is nice… ” So, I’m sharing this with you.
Have a beautiful day everyone. Ordinary or otherwise, let’s spread Love.
…somewhere along the line, you changed. You stop being you. You let people stick a finger on your face and tell you you’re no good. And when things got hard, you started looking for something to blame, like a big shadow.
Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!
