Live by the wisdom and beauty you would become

When I think back to the time
I decided I had no place to run,
the long journey comes before me
in the reflection of how we came to be
one within each other.

Honored by the Dalai Lama.
Implored to "please continue!"
The dreams for peace roll by
activated with compassion:

The way to compassion is never ceasing to have it.

Compassion is judging the transgressions of others in the face of forgiveness within.

Honoring compassion is but another way to make an aspiring goal out of honoring life.

Compassion wears a mantel of humbleness and never complains of the fit.

Compassion is free falling into the unknown, uplifted by the depth of your own love.

Compassion is the "Golden Rule" of doing unto others as you would have them do unto you.

"From my own limited experience I have found that the greatest inner tranquillity comes from the development of love and compassion. The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater our own sense of well-being.  It is the ultimate source of success in life.  This is my simple religion.  There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy.  Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness."
His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama
