The Dalai Lama, Happiness is Warm Heartedness

The Dalai Lama, Happiness is Warm Heartedness

As always the words of his holiness bring both heat and light ~ Rev Kane

The ultimate source of a happy life is warm-heartedness. This means extending to others the kind of concern we have for ourselves. On a simple level we find that if we have a compassionate heart we naturally have more friends. And scientists today are discovering that while anger and hatred eat into our immune system, warm-heartedness and compassion are good for our health. ~ Dalai Lama

    Yes, but is warm heartedness a result or trait of a deeper state, or something that we can will upon ourselves?

      I have to think that we can will it on ourselves, or maybe we just have to fake it until it becomes real. Thanks for the the comment ~ Rev Kane
