A Short Buddhist Outlook On Life

  • ImageTake into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
  • When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.
  • Follow the three Rs: Respect for self, Respect for others and Responsibility for all your actions.
  • Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.
  • Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.
  • Don’t let a little dispute injure a great ¬† ¬†friendship.
  • When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
  • Spend some time alone every day. Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.
  • Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
  • Live a good, honourable life. Then when you get older and think back, you’ll be able to enjoy it a second time.
  • A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.
  • In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation.
  • Don’t bring up the past.
  • Share your knowledge. It’s a way to achieve immortality.
  • Be gentle with the earth.
  • Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.
  • Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.
  • Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it. Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon.
  • I also know that dreams really do come true and you have my best wishes and my best efforts in those.

Regards, Dalai Lama

I am not entirely certain he actually said these but they are still good to bear in mind. As long as we continue to be the best we can be the world will also be a better place.

Peace out!
