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

Dalai Lama XIV, The Art of Happiness

Isn’t it amazing, how the smallest shift in perspective, can change simply everything?

To hold compassion higher than anything else—and to touch humanity’s heart in only the most special of ways.

Mind your thoughts, as you move through this day.

Remember, your most precious gift is the impression you leave behind…

The moments we bring to those in need…

And, all of those most beautiful ‘other things’ we choose to share along the way…

Mind your thoughts…share of your heart and let your inner ‘you’ define a brand new ‘view.’

For you see, this world, it so very much needs you right now.

So, share of all and everything you’ve got—because, after all, my dears…humanity and compassion are always free.
