Dalai Lama, One of the Pictures of a Baby Touched by the Hands of God ❤
These days, in our materialistic culture, many people are led to believe that money is the ultimate source of happiness. Consequently, when they don’t have enough of it they feel let down. Therefore, it is important to let people know that they have the source of contentment and happiness within themselves, and that it is related to nurturing our natural inner values. - Dalai Lama via Facebook post 25Feb2013
Dalai Lama. Attended his week-long Kalachakra in DC in 2011. Amazing presence.
One of the characteristics of karmic theory is that there is a definite, commensurate relationship between cause and effect. There is no way that negative actions or unwholesome deeds can result in joy and happiness. Joy and happiness, by definition, are the results or fruits of wholesome actions. So from that point of view, it is possible for us to admire not so much the immediate action, but the real causes of joy. ~Dalai Lama Quotes On Happiness
True, not just for days, but for hours, moments, seconds'. So cherish NOW, for the millisecond in which we live, will never happen again, so make sure what you are doing NOW is not something you will regret tomorrow, because no matter how much you wish to, you can't take this moment back.. -Callie
