It seems appropriate to begin the third week of my quest for goodness with two quotes from The Dalai Lama:
My true religion is Kindness.
From a speech by The Dalai Lama on world peace:
The development of a kind heart (a feeling of closeness for all human beings) does not involve the religiosity we normally associate with conventional religious practice. It is not only for people who believe in religion, but is for everyone regardless of race, religion, or political affiliation. It is for anyone who considers himself or herself, above all, a member of the human family and who sees things from this larger and longer perspective.
Now my thoughts: Could it be that the path to goodness is something as simple as a radical willingness to be kind?
