Peace

Peace

We are driven by self-interest, it’s necessary to survive. But we need wise self-interest that is generous and co-operative, taking others’ interests into account. Co-operation comes from friendship, friendship comes from trust, and trust comes from kind-heartedness. Once you have a genuine sense of concern for others, there’s no room for cheating, bullying or exploitation.

Always Follow the Truth

“For though we love both the truth and our friends, piety requires us to honor the truth first.”
~Aristotle

Onward & Upward

When in doubt:
add a pinch more salt; slow down; be nice; help; smile; pray; leap; love; leave a little extra; turn it up; be silent; believe; laugh out loud; breathe….  whatever you do, always do it with honesty, integrity and dedication -no matter how small or insignificant you may think your action is.

“The first beneficiary of compassion is always oneself. When compassion, or warmheartedness, arises in us and our focus shifts away from our own narrow self-interest, it is as if we open an inner door. It reduces fear, boosts confidence and brings us inner strength. By reducing distrust, it opens us to others and brings us a sense of connection to others, and sense of purpose and meaning in life.”  –Dalai Lama
