Dalai Lama's guide to happiness
What do you think? Did you expect jokes about gas from a world-renown and loved leader? I really like that man! He says things that resonate with me. "Peace of mind comes firstly from warm-heartedness." "Fear and trust contradict each other. With fear - how can we develop friendship?" "In a big city - many people, but too much self-centered attitude and no sense of love...Too much competitive sense [in the city]. With competitive attitude comes jealousy. Jealousy brings distrust. Distrust brings frustration and fear. Then the lonely feeling comes. Therefore, lonely feeling is not creation of the environment, but creation of your own mental attitude." "Eventually, we can develop a more deeper experience about our life. Please, think: from now on I must make a new person. Same body, but a new person!"
