My Big Mistake is Sometimes I lost my Compassion/ However I am no longer the Dalai Lama’s Stray Cat I am his Loving Siamese Cat

Essay by Luke Foster

“If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.” “Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.”

Hi Holiness the Dalai Lama

If you are antagonised by someone don’t lose your cool and stoop to their level but rather meditate on them with compassion as if you do antagonise them then suspicion, hate shall prevail and they shall seek revenge and at it’s worst can lead to war.

I have been burning up today because I’m thinking of all the times that I lost my cool with people who wanted ill will of me. I put myself in a very dangerous situation as they reacted back in a very violent ways and in other cunning ways.

I am also Pope Francis loving nervous puppy dog today.

“The future starts today, not tomorrow.” “Anything done for another is done for oneself.” “Freedom consists not in doing what we like, but in having the right to do what we ought.” “I have looked into your eyes with my eyes.”

Pope Francis

I love sending art presents to the Pope and Dalai Lama and the Obamas and Malala.

I always say there needs to be equal number of strong spiritual women in the world such as Michelle Obama and Malala Yousafzai.

The key for the safe future of the world is education for everyone particularly on the subcontinent.

“Let us make our future now, and let us make our dreams tomorrow’s reality.”

Malala Yousafzai

Malala is very strong and wise beyond her age and deeply compassionate.

“Empower yourselves with a good education, then get out there and use that education to build a country worthy of your boundless promise.” “I was too worried about the grades and I should have been more worried about learning.” “When girls are educated, their countries become stronger and more prosperous.”

Michelle Obama

I love these Michelle quotes about the importance of education for women globally so the unbalance of too much aggressive male energy in power is balanced out.

In conclusion if you are in a position of power and are being taunted then don’t stoop to their level rather meditate on them with compassion and watch Dalai Lama videos and listen to Tibetan chanting. I am sad today a little as I have never met the Dalai Lama in person but I know he loves me and so does the Pope and Malala and Michelle in a platonic way.
