Earth Day 2016 …

“Taking care of this planet that is our only home is not just the responsibility of governments and large organizations, although of course they have a role. The whole of humanity, each of us as individuals has a responsibility. We have to consider seriously whether we can indefinitely keep up the materialistic way of life we’ve got used to.”24500_339205542615_5021059_n

Dalai Lama about happiness …

24500_339205542615_5021059_n

Happiness depends on inner peace, which depends on warm-heartedness. There’s no room for anger, jealousy or insecurity.

A calm mind and self-confidence are the basis for peaceful relations with others.

Scientists have observed that constant anger and fear eat away at our immune system, whereas a calm mind strengthens it.

Changing the world for the better begins with individuals creating inner peace within themselves.

Dalai Lama – peace of mind …

“An affectionate disposition not only calms the mind, it’s good for our physical well-being too. On the other hand, hatred, jealousy and fear disturb our peace of mind, they make us agitated physically and mentally. Such agitation is disturbing, which shows that the need for peace of mind is in our blood.

Dalai Lama – inner peace …

Dalai-Lama-pic-1

“The way to develop inner peace through meditation begins with the recognition that the destroyer of inner peace is not some external foe, but is within us.

Therefore, the solution is within us too.

However, that inner change does not take place immediately in the way that we switch on a light, but takes weeks, months and years.

“Compassion suits our physical condition, whereas anger, fear and distrust are harmful to our well-being.

Therefore, just as we learn the importance of physical hygiene to physical health, to ensure healthy minds, we need to learn some kind of emotional hygiene.

Dalai Lama – all things originate with the mind …

Dalai-Lama-pic-1

“From my point of view all things originate with the mind.

The quality of our actions depends on our motivation.

A real appreciation of humanity, compassion, and love are crucial to this.

Whether we work in science, agriculture, or politics, if we’re good hearted about it, our contribution will be positive.
