BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, September 1st, 2021 by The Dalai Lama

“The essence of all religions is love, compassion, and tolerance. Kindness is my true religion No matter whether you are learned or not, whether you believe in the next life or not, whether you believe in God or Buddha, or some other religion or not, in day-to-day life you must be a kind person. When you are motivated by kindness, it doesn’t matter whether you are a practitioner, a lawyer, a politician, an administrator, a worker, or an engineer: whatever your profession or field, deep down you are a kind person.”

The Dalai Lama


“When we put up with any situation that we don’t have to put up with, it’s not because we’re dumb. We put up with it because we want the lesson that only that situation can teach, and we want it more than freedom itself.”

Richard Bach, in “Running From Safety”
