The Dalai Lama on how to stay healthy.....

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.

I totally agree.

ETA, my husband's oncologist talked to us about the positive power of happy endorphins once and he said he has seen them at work many times in his patients.

Makes sense and if nothing else it's much nicer to feel compassion rather than anger.

My brohter in law, also a physician (card./internist) believes in the same, as he has practiced nearly 40 years and has had many an example.

I wish there would soon be a message from the Dalai Lama again, as he has so much wisdom, and recommendations. But I have read this by him before, compassion, compassion is the best we can do for each other and ourselves.

Thanks for bringing this up.

I believe that to be true.

Sadness and heartache can eat up people. You can always tell when someone is faking being happy too. You either have it or you don't.

Makes sense to me. I see so much, here on this board and out there in so-called real-life, with people having such ugly vitriol for others - in most cases people they don't even know!

It must make it just awful for a person to live a life with so much ugliness inside them. I think they often get so deeply entrenched in it that they no longer even recognize it, for what it is, and it has become so familiar that they are afraid to turn it around.

Bippity boppity BOOYAH!

I totally agree with what the Dalai Lama said. Laughter and compassion are the best medicine in the whole wide world. I LOVE TO LAUGH, is my signature expression, cause I do! {#emotions_dlg.laugh} {#emotions_dlg.thumbup}

I love to laugh and dance......

ITA with what you stated, chickenbutt. There are some on the "Q forums" that could learn from this thread, but unfortunately will never admit their actions even when they post it and it's pointed out to them, sadly.

I don't understand why someone would choose to be unhappy and ugly to anyone. There are enough sad things in life without creating more.

I need humor. I crave it and I admire people who choose to use it in there daily struggles.

Learn from yesterday ... Live for today ... Hope for tomorrow.
It only takes a second to show someone how you feel about them. The police call it indecent exposure, but whatever ...

There's an article in the Science section of HuffPo about right brain/left brain thinking, how it is vitallyy important to develop the right side which coincides with this OP.

The right side processes feelings (compassion), the left processes information including critical thinking (not a bad thing at all) but also being overly critical of people.

He is such a wise man :) We're here for such a relatively short time, and we're all here to learn life lessons....compassion, love, understanding being but a few of them.

When my time comes, I want to be remembered as someone who was full of love and compassion, not as a bitter, nasty person.Kiss
