Weekly Ponder (Sort Of)

I’m bad at keeping an ed cal.  Hush.

Okay, it’s late on Saint Patrick’s Day…scratch that, it’s early the day after Saint Patrick’s Day, so I’m not going to spend a lot of time extrapolating on these quotes.  But these are two thoughts from the Dalai Lama that have really helped me this week, dealing with unkind people and tough situations.  I always marvel at the simple but profound truths in what the Dalai Lama has to say.  I hope they can help you, too, when the time comes that you might need the wisdom:

“True compassion is not just an emotional response but a firm commitment founded on reason.”

“If you have fear of some pain or suffering, you should examine whether there is anything you can do about it. If you can, there is no need to worry about it; if you cannot do anything, then there is also no need to worry.”

I’ll also need to write a post on the seriously golden wisdom from my capoeira mestres…but first there will be cookies.
