For you, from the Dalai Lama

For healthy mental and emotional growth, we need a gentle, skillful, balanced approach, avoiding extremes. If we are becoming arrogant and self-important, the antidote is to think about our own problems and sufferings, to bring us down to earth. But if we are feeling overwhelmed, discouraged, helpless and depressed, it's important to reflect on our positive qualities or achievements to uplift our minds.

  • I totally agree! The Middle Way is always best for me. And we are what we think, so it's important to nurture our positive thoughts and have balance in life. :-D
