Quotes of the day 7/18/16

“If we think only of ourselves, 
forget about other people, 
then our minds occupy a very small area. 
Inside that small area, 
even tiny problem appear very big. 
But the moment we develop 
a sense of concern for others, 
we realize that, just like ourselves, 
they also want happiness; 
they also want satisfaction. 
When we have this sense of concern, 
our minds automatically widen. 
At this point, our own problems, 
even big problems, will not be so significant. 
The result? Big increase in peace of mind. 
So, if we think only of ourselves, 
only our own happiness, 
the result is actually less happiness. 
We get more anxiety, more fear.”
     ~ Dalai Lama XIV 

If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, 
live in the moment, live in the breath.
It's where all the answers, 
inspiration, and peace reside.
     ~adapted, inspired, Amit Ray
