Even after all this time,
The sun never says to the earth,
‘You owe me.’
Look what happens with
A love like that.
It lights the whole sky.
I have learned, that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
To say ‘we’ and mean ‘I’ is one of the most recondite insults.
If you have a purpose in which you can believe, there’s no end to the amount of things you can accomplish.
Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact.
It’s helpful to remind yourself that meditation is about opening and relaxing with whatever arises, without picking and choosing.
Dreams pass into the reality of action. From the actions stems the dream again; and this interdependence produces the highest form of living.
Learning how to love is the goal and the purpose of spiritual life — not learning how to develop psychic powers, not learning how to bow, chant, do yoga, or even meditate, but learning to love. Love is the truth. Love is the light.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.
Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama
