“Our lives are in constant flux, which generates many predicaments. But when these are faced with a calm and clear mind supported by spiritual practice, they can all be successfully resolved.
When our minds are clouded by hatred, selfishness, jealousy, and anger, we lose not only control but also our judgment. At those wild moments, anything can happen. Our own destructive emotions pollute our outlook, making healthy living impossible.
We need to cleanse our own internal perspective though the practice of wise compassion.”
~His Holiness the Dalai Lama, How To Be Compassionate; A Handbook for Creating Inner Peace and a Happier World
