The Dalai Lama on Compassion


I’d like to share with you my Sunday morning musings on the subject of compassionate communication, both what is said and left unsaid.

In the words of the Dalai Lama:

‘All individuals are equal in that every one of us instinctively seeks happiness and avoids suffering.’

‘I try to treat every person I meet like an old friend, and that gives me a real sensation of happiness.’

‘An authentic attitude of compassion doesn’t change, even faced with another person’s negative behavior.’

I know for myself the last quote can be a personal challenge, I shall make it the focus of my week.

What about you? What’s your personal challenge this week?
