The Dalai Lama, Responsibility and Us

To cleanse the palate from my previous post, here’s the Dalai Lama:

I believe that to meet the challenges of our times, human beings will have to develop a greater sense of universal responsibility. Each of us must learn to work not just for one self, one’s own family or one’s nation, but for the benefit of all humankind. Universal responsibility is the key to human survival. It is the best foundation for world peace.

This sense of responsibility is one reason why I’m on a quest to know goodness. I shamelessly want to be part of the conversation/solution to humankind’s failure of empathy, understanding, compassion and action.

The quote was posted on the Dali Lama’s Facebook page this morning.

    When I saw the post previous to this one I intentionally avoided it as I feel as though I can only focus on what I want instead of what I truly don’t want (although I believe I understand why you wrote about it…I’m not that evolved yet!) Thank you for staying on your quest. It serves us well.

    I understand your feelings, Kelley, and why you avoided it. That’s why I thought a little Dalai Lama was necessary immediately after.

    In this century only 10 years have passed we are left with 90 more, so in order to make it a more peaceful and compassionate world the younger generation has the responsibility to create the new world,” said Dalai Lama
