STOP AND THINK – Genuine happiness consists in those spiritual qualities of love, compassion, patience, tolerance, and forgiveness. (The Dalai Lama)

He went on to say, “For it is these which provide both for our happiness and others’ happiness.” The qualities he referred to are all directed outward. They can be shown only in relationship to others. It reminds us that we can’t really be happy if we are focused only on ourselves. We must be positively involved with others. They will be happy, and so will we!

Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. (Colossians 3:12)
