Dalai Lama: “Every Day, Think as you Wake Up…”

Tomorrow morning, try reading this aloud first thing:

Words to live by.

Unless you’re a spelling bee contestant…and even then.

In Buddhism, they talk about 1) view, 2) meditation, and 3) action. View, or approach, or intention or mission…is considered most powerful, since it is from the minds of humankind that all our actions originate.
