The Dalai Lama and 10 years of Action for Happiness

Recently, Action for Happiness, a UK charity celebrated 10 years of promoting science based approach to happiness, growing happier communities and helping reduce loneliness. The charity’s patron, The Dalai Lama, gave a talk from his home in Dharmsala and answered questions from the audience. The words that stuck with me the most are below (paraphrased).

Cultivate warm heartedness and peace within. Happy world comes from happy humans. For those who hurt you feel pity – they forgot, they hurt because they are hurting.

But also remember, you are nothing special, just one of 7bn people (lose the righteousness). You are just a human being, we are all just human beings, we need to learn to live together with loving kindness.

Reacting, resisting is from I, from Self, from forgetting. Love, not burn. It is just another dust cycle 😉

    i love this. currently on day 4 of a mass power outage, the community has come together to support each other in all kinds of ways, and it makes it all worthwhile, something that is a gift rather than a negative experience.
