wall wisdom

If there is love, there is hope to have real families, real brotherhood, real equanimity, real peace. If the love within your mind is lost, if you continue to see other beings as enemies, then no matter how much knowledge or education you have, no matter how much material progress is made, only suffering and confusion will ensue.
Tenzin Gyatso (born July 6, 1935) 14th Dalai Lama

Funny how yesterday you had fear, and today hope. Fear is the destroyer of hope. For with fear we are paralyzed and there is no room for hope. And I have found that hope acts as a buttress to fear? I don't know if it makes sense but I am finding that these are the two most important keys to a good life. Banishing fear so hope can rein...

While there's life there's hope, I hope!
