Dalai Lama

I had the opportunity to hear the Dalai Lama speak yesterday. It was one of those events in life that when the email came out from school, I just knew I had to experience. While I can’t say it was a life changing experience, I can say,it was an affirmation that I am exactly where I am supposed to be in life and that I should continue working to be the best person I can be while living out my time here on earth.I really don’t have profound words of wisdom from yesterday, so I am just going to share some of my favorite quotes and comments from yesterday.

“Humor, humility, and humanity equal a happy life.”

“Mother Theresa was a very dedicated lady. We all have that same potential.”

“Mutual admiration creates mutual respect.”

“The remaining 86 years of the 21st century are the best to come.”

“There is no other choice than peace.”

“An optimistic attitude is necessary with holism. Meditate with optimism. If you want to die soon, medicate with pessimism.” Yes, he was very funny as well. 🙂

“Any change must start with the individual.”

“Constant love and compassion is good for your health.”

~Dalai Lama
