If we develop concern for other people's welfare, share other people's suffering, and help them, ultimately we will benefit. If we think only of ourselves and forget about others, ultimately we will lose. The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater our own sense of well-being becomes.~ HH Dalai Lama ~
For the Dalai Lama's birthday, Se'lah hosted A Random Act of Kindness Day. "Do a random kindness for someone. It can be small."
Today was garbage day. I planned to bring the neighbors' cans in from the street for them. One of my neighbors got there first and brought mine in for me.
So, HHDL, in honor of your birthday, I just tried to be kind. Period.
I hope you had a good birthday and if you are out there listening, please send some birthday blessings to my brother. Today is his birthday...and Mom and I are taking him to lunch.
