So last Friday my lovely friend Janis and I went to see/hear HH the 14th Dalai Lama speak about human approaches to world peace. You can listen to it here. I don’t like to get political here, I’m a very non-confrontational gal but I need to share with you my thoughts…opinions and comments welcome!
What I took from this lecture were two things:
#1 We are all human brothers and sisters
This just seems like a really nice way of thinking to me that essentially despite some rather superficial differences we are all the same and we want the same things in life.
#2 Non-bias compassion
Love. After hearing this I became completely aware that I participate in this way of thinking it’s not entirely right. Everyone deserves compassion, everyone. Whether you agree with them or not. We could all afford to just be a little kinder and a little gentler to those around us.
I need to make sure I see the Dalai Lama or any other motivational/inspirational speaker more often, It’s done wonders to my attitude and made me feel much more positive about life (not that I was a bitter betty before or anything!) So here’s your Body By Nature challenge for the month of November – show compassion.
Do you have a favourite motivational or inspirational speaker? What is the best advice they’ve given you?
