I found this on Facebook and I love synchronicity when it happens, also uuI discovered in the March/April 2014 Issue of Resurgence & Ecologist the following article:
The Dalai Lama – Hopes comes from the Heart
Hylton Murray-Philipson wonders what keeps the Dalai Lama going
It was said in the article the answer lies in the Faith of the Dalai Lama, not only in his religious faith as a Buddhist, but also his faith in young People.
One of his most fundamental beliefs is in non-violence, his long life experience has proved his believe, he has seen the Berlin Wall coming down, the end of Apartheid in South Africa and the British Empire coming to an end through Gandhi’s campaign of civil disobedience.
Countering a feeling of hopelessness he said: “If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping in a room with a mosquito!”
The Dalai Lama emphasis on our common humanity, beyond race, religion, profession or status.
Furthermore he emphasis and is passionate about the need to act – TODAY. He say: there are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called Yesterday and the other is called Tomorrow.”
In my mind every act, no matter how small towards a sustainable and respectful world to live, counts.
Every step we take, every decision we make and talk about is a step into the right direction.
