THOUGHTS FOR THIS WEEK
I was feeling all introspective-ish and this post from the Dalai Lama popped up in my Facebook memories because I shared it two years ago. My post from yesterday is here (with all my feels) and here’s what the Dalai said: “I feel that compassionate thought is the most precious thing there is. It is something that only we human beings can develop. And if we have a good heart, a warm heart, warm feelings, we will be happy and satisfied ourselves, and our friends will experience a friendly and peaceful atmosphere as well. This is something that can also be experienced nation to nation, country to country, continent to continent.” COMPASSION is the key to connection…and we need a whole lot more of it these days. If you’re interested in learning more about ways to connect with compassion, I suggest you check out the Houston NVC (Nonviolent Communication) website and if you wish, join in weekly live NVC convos with Karen Starz and her “Compassionate Communication Group” (see more about those here). We CAN change the world, one kind act at a time!
