The quality of everything we do: our physical actions, our verbal actions, and even our mental actions, depends on our motivation. That's why it's important for us to examine our motivation in our day to day life. If we cultivate respect for others and our motivation is sincere, if we develop a genuine concern for others’ well-being, then all our actions will be positive.

How does one cultivate a motivation to be interested in one's motivations?

THANK YOU Dalai Lama!! But... what of those we must love and live near who bring entropy to the motivation and refuse to feel compassion?

(中文)我们的身体行为、言语行为,甚至精神行为——总之,我们所做的一切事情的品质,都取决于我们的动机。这就是为什么每天都要反省自己的动机是如此重要。如果我们培养对他人的尊重,并抱有真诚的动机,诚恳地关注他人的幸福, 那么我们所有的行动都将是积极的。

Have A Nice Monday of peacefull,Dalai Lama,When we do positive things in sincerity with ourself,and others people we just have Win the good way of serenity,y think..........,Everybody can find The Peace Spirit.;;Your words are very beautiful thank you to take time to share it on Google!!!!!!
 
...it's like a check and balance - it's called being honest with yourself...because sometimes you think you are doing something "good" yet it is actually quite selfish...
 
Tenzin Gyatso's English is quite impeccable in that paragraph. I know he speaks English very well, but someone must be cleaning the text up for him.
 
always all people are GOD but they don't no they are GOD for knowing they are GOD they have to go to GURU
 
most of our miseries are rooted from the BAD 'quality of everything we do'
 
"The earth is billions of years old and all Gods were man made about 6000 years ago."

The gentleman here originating the post is almost certainly in agreement with that. He has gone so far as to assert that Buddhist theology that is contradicted irrefutably by science must be thrown out.
 
I certainly hope my motivations are correct - but it is hard to be objective in self examination. I try not to judge myself to harshly but the choice of desires to enable or disable seems to me linked to the moment at hand and to eternity in the same instant and without great discernment we can only ask what is right for this moment and hope it will wend well with the flow of life in our part of the continuum!

yes I agree. our stance is helper always and if our heart is white, we can move all things.
 
sometimes we ask for another , May I help you? that word is so important.
 
That´s exact!...:) Thank YOU
 
Without the proper motivation, how could we motivate other's.. In life others do recieve motivation from us, while we get motivation from our heroes of the world..... Thanks Dali Lama ........ Universal Disciple .....
 
Yes, this is like your 'intentions'. Most definitely true. X

We concur then Leonardo Rodano! It is to my own thoughts I should return!
 
Our motivations are in our thoughts and the origins of our thoughts and in what we are

+GREZ MAWS religions don't lie, they believe, just as you believe we don't go to heaven or hell when we die. I dunno what the real answer is but I find it hard to believe that this world we inhabit and the planets we have sent rockets to around it are all there is. Personally I see it as human arrogance to assume there is nothing more to life than what we already know..whether it is heaven/hell that follows death or something else I dunno but I'm pretty certain there's more to life than simply the universe
 
The falsehood of heaven and hell brings the man to try to do good to not be damned for eternity, and the truth that the world ends with the death door man to seek to live in the best possible manner, and overwhelm the other for himself.
It would seem better to have a useful lie that a dangerous truth.
 
Positive thinking is a mental attitude that admits into the mind thoughts. Aristotle rightly said that "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit"
I appreciate your advice &
with sincere Motivations , we can improve the quality of life.
Joe Lay
 
truth...there is no such thing as truth, only what we assume to be true, we didnt create the world so we cannot be certain of all of its secrets
 
Thank You! There is far more appreciation of the offering now and so I am encouraged!
 
@ Nigam Rajen: To say that 'We are what we repeatedly' is a fact of life, and we can
repeatedly do things that we think,or do things to instinct, we
'tabula rasa', we can remain such, or strive we understand things before you act
 
Motivation is like brushing your Brain, U need to religiously follow it daily !
 
@ Joe Lay: why Christians speak of a God who is revealed, to win the relativism of the individual subject with regard to God and the absolute truth
 
Yet the words you speak have been around for lifetimes, upon lifetimes. Why do you not place responsibility on the shoulders of the teachers of it. The dysfunctional religious leaders that meddle in politics, that condone war, so much so in the second world war they were, in the name of God, sending soldiers to kill those in other lands who shared the same belief. TEACH WHAT YOU SAY TO THE DUMMY RELIGIOUS LEADERS.

@ John Townsend: The perfection of God does not imply the perfection of the men. Studying the history of the Jews we see how hundreds of times the men disubbiscono to God, doing bad actions. Sometimes make bad actions by saying that God is to obey.

+Leonardo Rodano can explain your point to me again? I'm 16 and my understanding of vocabulary is lesser than my understanding of life
 
John Townsend - the responsibility is already on their shoulders but those who are obsesses with themselves and their position in the church are to often to distracted to notice. If they were available to learn - perhaps teaching them would be worth while - but while lost in themselves the are not!

Hitler was a Catholic, the Pope of the day was aware of the situation, said nothing, did nothing. It would have caused a problem to speak up and say No to Hitler, but the Pope places himself as Gods spokesperson on Earth.

I think to say any pope has ever been a spokesperson of God is wrong, surely popes are instead very wise men who focused most of their ideas on God
 
So his holiness should speak loud and clear to the religious leaders, the hypocrits.
 
+Dalai Lama I'm happy to hear you back,

IF you realise what is respect and sincere, then do not let your secretary post this for you.
 
It's so hard to me. My physical actions, my verbal actions, and my mental actions; how could I let these actions always keep pure in every moment in my day to day life? Moreover, how could I help people awareness these actions' important and correctly help them pass through their suffering and unwisdom? I feel I am so commonness, but I also hope I could be a man whom could like Buddha so sapiential and so merciful. My great teacher Dalai Lama, I bowed to you, may you teach me how to get the smart way.

God bless you Mr Lama . May it be made known to you that Jesus Christ never claimed to be a prophet , he claimed to be God .
 
The notion that everything, including your own psyche, can be defined by only "positive" or "negative" is a primitive and two-dimensional view of a complex universe. It is how we get extremists in the world. If you accept this 2D model of life, how do you hope to achieve any balance by denying one half of who you are (the "negative" half)? Would not an enlightened person embrace and validate all of themself? 
 
Dear Dalai,

Thank you for pointing out that motivation shouldn't be selfish, however, I can't seem to escape my selfishness. I'm sure everyone else has this problem too. Even meditating to achieve nirvana is selfish, since that nirvana only comes for me and for no one else. Since it's impossible to ever be fully unselfish, I'd like to propose that the motivation should come from something else, something that forgives selfishness, something that affects the whole world and not just the people who meditate, something that is 100% easier to live by.

Motivated by Jesus Christ,

Clayton

Kenneth, you need to identify that the negative exists but not with yourself. and realize the only negitivity you can controll is your own. 7 days ago i would have said that human beings normal inclination is to be negative. But it is the opposite. all living things strive for positivity rather than negativity, because in the end feeling good is so much better than feeling bad. LOLZ! =D
 
So what your saying is, motivation is the key? that's just too much motivation in the morning and not enough coffee.

its not popycock! Every religion has the same theme-do unto others-try it sometime-it works
 
Bingo! Satyakam Panda has made the point perfectly - there may have been uneducated saints in the past - but not many who return to this world would overlook the need to adapt to the modern age! So it is illogical to expect a modern saint to ignore the opportunity to reach more people!
 
I have livedit for more than 20 yrs. I know by hardwork and dangerous experiences. Not lazy-quick judgment by people who are rotten to the core.
 
@Rachael there are few people that I can name with the worlds history that are rotten to the core. You cant change negative with a negative. It takes a positive to change a negative.
 
Exactly - it is about compassionate action!
 
Religion tries to identify a feeling or experience that transcend explanation.

हमारे शारीरिक कर्म, हमारा मौखिक कर्म यानि बातचीत, यहां तक कि हमारे मानसिक कर्म... वो सब कुछ जो हम करते हैं...हमारे द्वारा किये जाने वाले सारे कार्यों की गुणवत्ता हमारी अंत:प्रेरणाओं पर निर्भर हैं। यही कारण है कि यह हमारे लिए बहुत ही महत्वपूर्ण है कि हम अपने रोजाना की जिन्दगी की अंत:प्रेरणाओं को जांचें। यदि हम दूजों के लिए सम्मान विकसित करें और इस बारे में हमारी प्रेरणा गंभीर हो, यदि हम दूजों की भलाई के लिए... गंभीर मौलिक रूप से परवाह करें.. तो हमारे सारे कर्म सकारात्मक होंगे।

Peace. We all get good advice, but can only take it to heart when we are ready. It takes time to learn the lessons of life. Once one realizes that empathy is good for oneself as well as others, the rest of the lesson follows, experience reinforces goodwill and life is less stressful.
 
How can they be wrong, they are the ones saying they are right. And do you know what they all disagree. Come on some are liars, cheats. They teach what is not written, they refuse to follow the simply Biblical edit and act upon it, 'God hate's a liar'. They close eye's to morality, endorse the concept of Hell, not even written in scripture. They are Babylon the great harlot as mentioned in the book of Revelation. The Beast turns on them being the political powers and they go down. Even Jesus, Gods son, would say 'Go away from me you workers of lawlessness, I do not know you.'
 
@ mike dalton. Am I understanding you correctly? You are assuming that your 'God' is the creator, all while chastising those who look for peaceful wisdom in the form of words, not an almighty source. People in glass houses sir.... U assume to know everyone else is wrong and u are right. Wouldn't that be taking a page form your almighty Himself? Ye who judge assume the position of God. He is the only judge sir

People of all different cultures, ethnicities, and religions commit suicide. Their "worldviews" are definitely not all the same, and not all share a belief in an afterlife at all. People do drastic things like suicide for their own reasons, and it's irresponsible to try and lump them all into one belief category.

Second point: Who is your neighbor? The next door family? Your boss? Your president? The "guerrilla" or "drug lord" in a 3rd world country?
Now...
You walk home...open the front door, just to find out that a bad guy is there, with you family...you can fell the horror in the air...try to live by yours 3 little words...Do No Harm.

As you may notice, all is base on perspectives...your either belive or not. One thing you can't do it...simply someone belives in 3 little words...

One thing I've learned everyone has their own selfish motivation some more positive some more negative. Every now and then we all go to the dark side.
 
Doesn't sound religious to me at all....

Dear Dalai Lama! This is the truth! The motivation we have a go-to light the Lord! She did not give an error. If we care about your neighbor, the Lord takes care of us! Thank you! Victor!
 
If you truly develop concern for others then you would spend every moment of every day miserable trying to help everyone everywhere. If you only care about a few people deeply, you're ignoring everyone else in pain, and caring about everyone all time is impossible.
 
Just as a man who killed a farmer's lamb shouldn't be found guilty, if his whole family is starving and his children is suffering; but he should found quilty to do this for fun or his own enjoyment.
 
You make the truth seem so easy to see through the fog of life. Thank you

Humanity is naturally violent due to our DNA. Unfortunately non-violence is not a Genetically viable survival characteristic. It will take much enlightenment and proof to mankind to get over this hurdle. We need to reward non-violence and punish violence at all levels. Politics is inherently viloent, so in a Democracy or a Dictatorship, our leaders are by nature violent. That is the dilemma that faces humanity. Poverty and wealth both breed violence.

So what is the true solution ?
 
"intention" that's what it really is. What is the intention? Our actions are judged by our motives.

But there are people who have done negative actions to meet certain needs, usually for survival, sometimes in sympathy with others who they see were oppressed.
 
+Andrew Glover "Kenneth, you need to identify that the negative exists but not with yourself. and realize the only negitivity you can controll is your own. 7 days ago i would have said that human beings normal inclination is to be negative. But it is the opposite. all living things strive for positivity rather than negativity, because in the end feeling good is so much better than feeling bad. LOLZ! =D"

I don't need to identify any such thing. I have not denied that negative or positive exists at all nor am I trying to control anyone's negativity, and why would you assume that I am not aware of my own negativity or how to control it? I don't recall asking you for such advice.
What I said was that limiting yourself to "positive" or "negative" is a primitive and two-dimensional way of looking at a complex universe. Do all living things really strive for positivity, or do they more or less strive for survival and happiness? Happiness and positivity are not the same. When a lion kills an antelope, is it "being positive"? Most people would say not. The lion is simply striving to survive and be happy and healthy. I'm glad you used nature as an analogy, so I will too. Is the wind always EITHER full hurricane force OR pleasantly mildly breezy? No; while those states do both exist, they are neither one a constant, and there are an almost infinite amount of varying degrees of wind in between the two. Should we only consider the sun to be at Winter Solstice OR Summer Solstice, ignoring the other 363 days of the year?
However, should we INSIST on using that limited view of life, here are a couple of other analogies that may help further explain my original post to you.
If you only attach the positive cable to your car battery, and leave the negative cable loose, your car will not start or function. You will go nowhere in your car.
In order to walk, you must step right, then left, then right, then left, then right, then left..........only using one leg would take you in circles.
Again, assuming the 2D view; if you deny negativity, and are only positive you are denying half of your self. If you deny positivity and are only negative you are denying half of your self. Either way you are not balanced.
I am atheist, but consider the Judaeo/Christian/Muslim myth of the Garden of Eden. Mankind was happily living in a paradise, getting real face-time with their creator. They were allowed anything in paradise except for the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Why did the wise creator not want Man to know Good and Evil? Remember, this was not the "evil" fruit or the "negative" fruit, this was KNOWING Good and Evil. Why not then? Because dividing and defining everything into "A" or "B" TOOK THEM AWAY FROM ENLIGHTENMENT AND HAPPINESS. It is a similar myth to Pandora's Box.
Well, long enough for now.

Der Versuch einer Übersetzung in die deutsche Sprache:

Unser innerer Antrieb ist es, der die Güte all dessen bestimmt, was wir tun: die Güte unseres Handelns, unserer Worte und unserer Gedanken. Deshalb ist es wichtig für uns, laufend unseren inneren Antrieb zu erkennen. Wenn unsere Achtung vor den anderen aufrichtig ist, wenn wir in unserem Bemühen um das Wohlergehen anderer aufrichtig sind, dann wird unser Handeln ein Segen sein.

Thank you for these words in the bad times and age!

陈独秀:“国原来是人民集合对外抵抗别人压迫的组织,对内调和人民纷争的机关。善人利用他可以抵抗异族压迫,调和国内纷争;恶人利用他可以外而压迫异族,内而压迫人民”。对于恶人当权的国家者,人民可以不言“爱国”,因为“爱国二字往往可以用作搜刮民财压迫个人的利器”。

毛泽东一针见血地提出“现在谈爱国,那是爱谁的国?蒋介石的国吧?”“少数人的国,他们少数人去爱吧。”毛泽东提出:“一个不是人民选举出来的政府,有什么脸面代表这个国家?爱这样的国家,就是对祖国的背叛”。

You cant just say "I will change my motivation now" and your motivation follows, its hard to apply. Thats why the Dalai Lama encourage to "cultivate" and "develop". Over time we attain clear motivations.
