11 Bits of Wisdom from the Dalai Lama

1. Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend - or a meaningful day.

2. Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can.

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

4. Silence is sometimes the best answer.

5. Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.

6. Know the rules well, so you can break them effectively.

7. If a problem is fixable, if a situation is such that you can do something about it, then there is no need to worry. If it’s not fixable, then there is no help in worrying. There is no benefit in worrying whatsoever.

8. This is my simple religion. No need for temples. No need for complicated philosophy. Your own mind, your own heart is the temple. Your philosophy is simple kindness.

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

10. People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost.

11. Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.

Ground yourself.

Here are some super easy grounding methods : 

  • Drink some strong herbal tea.
  • Eat some raw, organic fruits and veggies.
  • Take a long bath with some bath salts, herbs and oils.
  • Carry a grounding crystal on you, cleanse it beforehand.
  • Walk barefoot in the garden or at the local park.
  • Bury your feet in the ground and meditate.
  • Drum or dance, anything with good rhythm.
  • Practice yoga or tai chi.

Do any of these when you’re feeling drained.

Remember, that you are the source of what you seek. You are the freedom, you are the goodness, you are the wisdom, you are the worthiness, you are the love and the presence. All the self-limiting ideas are just that—ideas. And they all can be reevaluated and discarded in favor of the timeless presence of your being.

Peace & positive vibes.

The peace that we are looking for is not peace that crumbles as soon as there is difficulty or chaos. Whether we’re seeking inner peace or global peace or a combination of the two, the way to experience it is to build on the foundation of unconditional openness to all that arises. Peace isn’t an experience free of challenges, free of rough and smooth, it’s an experience that’s expansive enough to include all that arises without feeling threatened.
