We need to rely on common sense and common experience. It’s easy to see that if members of a well-off family don’t trust each other, they won’t be happy. On the other hand, when a family of beggars treat each other with affection, happiness comes easily. What we can learn from this is that never mind about future lives, we need compassion and warm-heartedness here and now in this life.
Scientists say it’s basic human nature to be compassionate, which is good because if it were to be angry there’d be no hope. What’s more, scientists have observed that constant anger, fear, and hatred have the effect of undermining our immune system, whereas cultivating a compassionate heart is much better for our health. This is why it’s important that we use our brains to promote such values.
Don’t let anyone’s ignorance, hate, drama or negativity stop you from being the best possible version of you that you can be.
We waste time looking for the perfect lover, instead of creating the perfect love.
If you can’t describe what you are doing as a process, you don’t know what you’re doing.
