“What unites all beings is their desire for Happiness.”……Dalai Lama


This is sooooo true!! Ask yourself when was the last time you were the happiest? I believe you would say it was when I was surrounded by many people that shared an interest in my joy.

It’s very hard to be happy all by yourself because the most happiness comes when you are able to share that happiness with others. Think about all the social networks such as Facebook and Twitter that bring so many people together everyday and nearly every hour because there is something that we all get from it. It can be a shared quote, a shared idea, a shared piece of information. All in all, it is something that is shared in joy.

Of course there are other instances where there may be no appreciation for a shareness of joy, where there seems to be more of an interest in a criticism, a harsh remark.

“When we ignore the question of the impact our actions have on others’ well-being, inevitably we end up hurting them.” ~ Dalai Lama

Because we live in such a “hurried” society where thoughts, actions and words are at times used in “haste,” we don’t even realize we may be hurting others with our thoughts and actions, until someone says and I’m sure you’ve heard this many times during the past couple of years…..”I’m Offended!!”

“Our prime purpose in life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.” ~ Dalai Lama

Ever since I came across this quote it truly inspired me as to how much we are all lacking in giving to others. This day and age is now considered a “Me” generation so in reading Dalai Lama’s moving quotes he always focused on one most important thing and that thing is…”COMPASSION.”
