“Peace is something like happiness; you cannot say “I will be happy when…” and you can’t say “I will be peaceful when…” Your happiness shouldn’t depend on the situation you’re in nor on the circumstances that surround you. In the same breath, you cannot wait for everything around you to become peaceful in order for you to say “I am peaceful.” In both happiness and peace, there is a heart of strength, determination and steadfastness; a heart that has the power to make things happen.

Tenzin Gyatso (6 July 1935) is the 14th and current Dalai Lama. Dalai Lamas are the most influential figures in the Gelugpa lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, although the 14th has consolidated control over the other lineages in recent years. He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989, and is also well known for his lifelong advocacy for Tibetans inside and outside Tibet. Tibetans traditionally believe him to be the reincarnation of his predecessors and a manifestation of the Bodhisattva of Compassion.

#skippingstones on #Lake #Michigan at #sunset. He handed me stones, I'd throw them, sometimes they'd skip, sometimes they'd sink. Until he handed me a different stone...I turned around and he was down on one knee with a ring. Happiest day of my life, so far. (I said "yes," btw :) ▫️#bored #unbored

" I believe all suffering is caused by ignorance. People inflict pain on others in the selfish pursuit of their happiness or satisfaction. Yet true happiness comes from a sense of peace and contentment, which in turn must be achieved through the cultivation of altruism, of love and compassion, and elimination of ignorance, selfishness, and greed." -Dalai Lama

When asked what surprised him most about humanity, the Dali Lama answered: “Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

Dalai Lama -Embellished Minds

The planet does not need more 'successful people'. The planet desperately needs more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers and lovers of all kinds. It needs people to live well in their places. It needs people with moral courage willing to join the struggle to make the world habitable and humane and these qualities have little to do with success as our culture has set.
