cultivate love and compassion

"It is time to fill the world with strong and powerful deeds. It is common knowledge that no great captain in the world has ever destroyed all of his enemies and lived with a sense of satisfaction. If one enemy is killed, two more will appear. It is important we cultivate love and compassion to all the sentient beings which is the way to bring peace to all."
14th Dalai Lama

happy earth day :: more love

"A homeless man gave this sign to me tonight. I thanked him and tried to give him a dollar. He refused, saying "Love is free." I insisted and he told me he would accept my generosity only if I promised to be a "Missionary for Compassion." I promised and he gave me a high-five."

earth day seems the perfect day for the "Missionary for Compassion" reminder!
thank you, mama earth, for all you offer.  
i, in turn, promise to offer more love & more compassion.  
thank you for always inspiring me.

RIP :: Roger Ebert

"'Kindness’ covers all of my political beliefs. No need to spell them out. I believe that if, at the end, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do. To make others less happy is a crime." 

Roger Ebert

Love recognizes no barriers

“Love recognizes no barriers. 
It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination 
full of hope.” 
Maya Angelou
