The moment you think only of yourself, the focus of your whole mind narrows, and because of this narrow focus, uncomfortable things can appear huge and bring you fear, discomfort, and a sense of feeling overwhelmed by misery. The moment you think of others with a sense of caring, however your mind widens. Within that wider angle, your own problems appear to be of no significance, and this makes a big difference.

So, the tendency of our childish nature is to take small things to seriously and get easily offended, whereas when we are confronted with situations that have long term consequences, we tend to take things less seriously.

Feeling of anger, bitterness, and hate are negative. If I kept those inside me they would spoil my body and my health. They are of no use.

I pray for a more friendly, more caring, and more understanding human family on this planet. To all who dislike suffering, who cherish lasting happiness, this is my heartfelt appeal.

Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.
This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.
Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.
