Dalai Lama: 50 Thoughts for a Better World

On his 78th birthday, the Dalai Lama has highlighted 50 ideas that can help achieve world peace.

Below is an article published by Times of India:

1) If people trust you, you have no grounds for fear, suspicion or jealousy.
2) Despite the superficial differences between us, we need to have a sense that all 7 billion human beings belong to one human family.
3) What we do need to do is to find ways to incorporate advice about warm-heartedness into our education system.
4) When we develop care and concern by thinking of others not as ‘them’ but ‘us’, there is no room for bullying, exploitation or deceit.
5) Genuine peace is based on inner peace, because you cannot build peace on the basis of anger.
6) Our real guide is our own mind, our sense of reason. We naturally have self-interest, but it should be wise rather than foolish self-interest by taking others' needs into account as well as ours.
7) I feel that each of us has the potential to make some contribution, and together, working with a clear aim, we can change our world.
8) Human happiness depends on taking others into account.
9) If we make consistent effort, based on proper education, we can change the world.
10) It is expressions of affection, rather than money and power, that attract real friends.
11) We need to strengthen such inner values as contentment, patience and tolerance, as well as compassion for others.
12) Everybody wants a happy life and a peaceful mind, but we have to produce peace of mind through our own practice.
13) Just as ripples spread out when a single pebble is dropped into water, the actions of individuals can have far-reaching effects.
14) Serving and helping others out of compassion is non-violence in action.
15) Most of our problems are related to the mind, so we have to work to reduce our destructive emotions.
16) If we can refrain from harming others in our everyday actions and words, we can start to give more serious attention to actively doing good.
17) Placing all our hope on material development is clearly mistaken; the ultimate source of happiness is within us.
18) If we can cultivate a concern for others, keeping in mind the oneness of humanity, we can build a more compassionate world.
19) It’s unrealistic to think that the future of humanity can be achieved only on the basis of prayer. What we need is to take action.
20) Concern for others’ well-being reduces fear and suspicion, prompting the openness and transparency that gives rise to trust and friendship.
21) Anger, hatred and jealousy can never solve problems. Only affection, concern and respect can do that.
22) Refraining from harm - not out of fear, but out of concern for others, their well-being and out of respect - is non-violence.
23) Whether we are happy or not depends on our attitude; compassion, for instance, leads to a calmer mind.
24) Education is the way to achieve far-reaching results; it is the proper way to promote compassion and tolerance in society.
25) Healthy, happy families and a healthy peaceful nation are dependent on warm-heartedness.
26) The challenge today is to convince people of the value of truth, honesty, compassion and a concern for others.
27) To make this a century of dialogue, we need to find ways to promote a greater awareness of the oneness of humanity.
28) It is vital that when educating our children’s brains, we do not neglect to educate their hearts by nurturing their compassionate nature.
29) If you are honest, truthful, and transparent, people trust you.
30) Just as we encourage physical hygiene to preserve our health, we also need a sense of emotional or mental hygiene too.
31) We live in a world in which we are dependent on others; we cannot expect to fulfil our goals while disregarding others’ needs.
32) We forget that despite the superficial differences between us, people are equal in their basic wish for peace and happiness.
33) People think of animals as if they were vegetables, and that is not right. We have to change the way people think about animals. I encourage the Tibetan people and all people to move toward a vegetarian diet that doesn’t cause suffering.
34) Sex offers fleeting satisfaction and leads to trouble later, while chastity offers a better life and more independence, more freedom. Problems arising from conjugal life sometimes even lead to suicide or murder...
35) Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.
36) Happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your own actions.
37) Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend or a meaningful day.
38) 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.
39) Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.
40) All major religious traditions carry basically the same message - love, compassion and forgiveness. The important thing is that they should be part of our daily lives.
41) When you are discontent, you always want more, more, more. Your desire can never be satisfied. But when you practice contentment, you can say to yourself: Oh yes. I already have everything that I really need.
42) The purpose of our lives is to be happy.
43) In the practice of tolerance, one's enemy is the best teacher.
44) We can live without religion and meditation, but we cannot survive without human affection.
45) When you practice gratefulness, there is a sense of respect toward others.
46) The roots of all goodness lie in the soil of appreciation for goodness. If you want others to be happy, practice compassion.
47) If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
48) It is important to consider others at least as important as ourselves. This is the essence of spirituality.
49) A number of people have said to me, after hearing my thinking, that their mind becomes much happier, concludes the Dalai Lama. I sure hope fellow seekers feel totally refreshed, like a walk in the rain, after this talk with the adorable and simple spiritual leader.
50) Reflect.

Bad Psychics Exposed -- Find Out how Naughty They Are! – Wednesday, July 10, 2013


GOD’S GOLD is a forthcoming book that will be published in time for Christmas 2013 by a major publisher. It contains what might be the most shocking of paranormal/spiritual experiences one could ever have. God’s Gold will be at a massive 400 pages and it’ll share my secret journey that I have been on, along with a workbook that will help the reader understand and apply the teachings that I alone have received from God, Jesus and spiritual beings whose names I can’t utter out loud, let alone write them down.

For the past year, whenever I close my eyes to sleep whether a short catnap or at night, my spirit has been whisked away to highest levels of the heavens above us. God and His spiritual partners have opened the curtains to wisdom that has been shared to only four [4] other beings throughout time. These teachings have been so intense and mind-blowing at times, that I’d scream out, "Pass this burden onto others for I can’t take it. Let someone wiser and braver than me carry this message out to the world." Each time I was told that it had to be me bring the message to you. So I’ll do my best to be the messenger between God and you. 

These profound teachings will unlock powers you never knew you had. These teachings will lead you to discover the resting place for God’s Gold buried in the earth by God. And buried there just for you to find it.
During my many journeys, I could look down and see the earth of 2013, 2014 and beyond. You’ll learn of wars that will break out, natural disasters that will strike, who will die and why, forthcoming Super Bowl winners and much, much more. God’s Gold will not only change your life but the lives of all around you. Not only will your sprit grow but so will your bank account, as you uncover your pot of God’s Gold.

The above is a bunch of crap. Anyone that knows me would know I wouldn’t write such garbage. 

Unfortunately, such a book as God’s Gold would trick many suckers. 

On this week's EYE ON THE PARANORMAL, we'll begin a series of shows on the subject of bad psychics. We've brought up stories in the news about shady store front ones. However, now we'll look at the big names of the field. We'll examine their claims of success and at the same time we'll look at their failures, the misses, and the harm they've done … and continue to do.

We’ll look at the ethics and morality of the psychic world and break down what you need to know to keep from being a victim. This is too much for just one show, so we'll come back to this topic in upcoming episodes.

Additionally we'll talk about my new book on Theresa Caputo and break a big story that no one other then the EYE ON THE PARANORMAL has.

As a weekly feature, Kirby will also share some book reviews and recommendations, as well as his infamous incredible "BAD BAD Thing Awards."

Showtime begins at 7 PM or 10 PM EST. Here is the link to the show:
