If we can manage to refrain from harming others in our everyday actions and words, we can start to give more serious attention to actively doing good, and this can be a source of great joy and inner confidence. We can benefit others through our actions by being warm and generous toward them, by being charitable, and by helping those in need.
Dalai Lama originally shared:
In today's deeply interdependent world, war is outdated and illogical. All regions, and all peoples, are interconnected environmentally, economically, and politically. War, oppression or civil strife in one area inevitably affects people in other parts of the world.

The first drawback of anger is that it destroys your inner peace; the second is that it distorts your view of reality. If you think about this and come to understand that anger is really unhelpful, that it is only destructive, you can begin to distance yourself from anger.
When we are angry we are blind to reality. Anger may bring us a temporary burst of energy, but that energy is blind and it blocks the part of our brain that distinguishes right from wrong. To deal with our problems, we need to be practical and realistic. If we are to be realistic, we need to use our human intelligence properly, which means we need a calm mind.
+1^ infinity. I just KEEP coming back to this and thinking how much this could change the world. Yet as humans this capacity is innate in us, and sometimes very difficult to avoid, even to notice, before it's too late...and yet it is not the anger itself methinks that is so much the issue, but our behavior as a result. Therein lies the problem: the ability to manage ones own anger whilst the ability to discerne is being blocked...can only be wrought with discipline...
For anyone able to read this: Sometimes technology seems rather silly, but if it allows us to communicate better, it should be a good thing, if we use it that way. I suppose having a day set aside for things like being thankful, forces us to think about them, as the Sabbath, which suggests we would not do it otherwise ;-) Too true. You are on my friends list or are here, because of a reason, and I am thankful, grateful, blessed even, for that, for you, and all you do, think, and are. May all you may meet, be as blessed as I am to be on your list as well. Thank you for you. Today, and every day.

You have a 1 in 23 million chance of existing. That makes you a miracle. Act like it.
Life is a truly incredible place. You have a 1 in 23 million chance of even existing. That means you are a miracle. Act like it. Enjoy yourself, it's the only life you got! I'm a single dad and enjoy my family more than anything I have. I want to be the best example for them that I can!
