G'day guys,


Today I introduce you to a famous man with some simple philosophy - His Holiness The Dalai Lama. I've always been impressed with his simple attitude to issues that we make complicated. Here are some of his words of wisdom ...


* Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk

* When you lose, don’t lose the lesson

* Follow the three R’s- Respect for self, respect for others, responsibility for all your actions

* Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck

* Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly

*



*


* Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship

* When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it

* Spend some time alone every day

* Open your arms to change but don’t let go of your values

* Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer

* Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you’ll be able to enjoy it a second time

* A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation of your life

* In disagreement with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Don’t bring up the past

*



*


* Share your knowledge, it’s a way to achieve immortality

* Be gentle with the earth

* Once a year, go some place you have never been before

* Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other

* Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it

* Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon

*
