Although we totally oppose their action, their activities, we always can keep COMPASSION to not develop hatred towards the person. On that basis…to develop FORGIVENESS – Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama
Regardless of your religious beliefs, please put it aside for a brief moment.
The Dalai Lama shares his point of view that regardless of the enduring pain someone may cause you, YOU still control your own thoughts and response and ultimate actions. If someone is harming you, you don’t need to harm them back, it creates an endless cycle of pain and more suffering. Rather, realize that the person harming you probably is suffering more than you can imagine or fathom and it might be creating a tremendous amount of negative energy inside them causing their negative behavior. At a minimum, we can pray for them, show them compassion and possibly, one day, they will see the error in their ways and change for the better. Everyone makes mistakes in life, but casting stones at those people immediately shows a block towards forgiveness, which ultimately leads to happiness.
Please Keep on the TRUE path of happiness, control your thoughts (take a deep breath) and don’t let others actions, mean spirited words or hurtful actions take YOU off your destined path. Happiness is just around the corner…KEEP PUSHING FORWARD!
