My Religion Is Kindness

sunset-hands-love-woman.jpg

If you wish to experience peace, provide peace for another.

If you wish to know that you are safe, cause another to know that they are safe.

If you wish to better understand seemingly incomprehensible things,

help another to better understand.

If you wish to heal your own sadness or anger, seek to heal the sadness or anger of another.

Those others are waiting for you now.  They are looking to you for guidance,

for help, for courage, for strength, for understanding, and for assurance at this hour.

Most of all, they are looking to you for love.

My religion is very simple.

My religion is kindness.

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, 1981
