To be idle is a short road to death and to be diligent is a way of life; foolish people are idle, wise people are diligent. ~ The Buddha
Neither peace nor war exists independently of us. Political and military leaders have grave responsibilities with respect to peace – but they too are members of the society that we as individuals help to create. Peace in the world depends on peace in the hearts of individuals; this depends on each of us practicing ethics by disciplining our negative thoughts and emotions and developing basic spiritual qualities. ~ His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama
As you know, not everyone celebrates Thanksgiving. And, I can say this with assurance, the ones who do choose to have this day for ‘giving thanks’ have their own way of celebrating.
So if you choose to celebrate Thanksgiving or not…
Thank you for all that you are…no matter who you are….where you are….I Give Thanks for you.
Behind fear lies a constant longing to be certain. ~ Khyentse Rinpoche
Chaos is inherent in all compounded things. Strive on with diligence. ~ The Buddha
Genuine compassion is based not on our own projections and expectations, but rather on the rights of the other. ~ His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
