TRANSFORM YOURSELF TO TRANSFORM THE WORLD

Developing our own positive inner qualities is the best way to help others.
.
.
At the beginning, our personal experience is our only reference point.
.
.
Our personal, self-centered experience, which tells us that we don’t want to suffer, can become the basis for a much larger point of view that includes all beings.
.
.
We are all dependent on each other and we all aspire to happiness.
.
.
It would be absurd (if not impossible) to feel happy while countless other beings all around us are miserable.
.
.
Seeking happiness for oneself alone is doomed to failure, since self-centeredness is a major source of our discontent.
.
.
Even if we display all the outward signs of happiness, we cannot be truly happy if we fail to take an interest in the happiness of others.
.
.
Altruistic love and compassion are the foundations of genuine happiness.
