“Interdependence
is a fundamental law of nature.
Even tiny insects
survive by cooperating with each other.
Our own survival
is so dependent on the help of others
that a need for love
lies at the very core of our existence.
This is why
we need to cultivate
a genuine sense of responsibility
and a sincere concern
for the welfare of others.”

“If you wish to experience peace,
provide peace for another.
If you wish to know that you are safe,
cause another to know that they are safe.
If you wish to better understand
seemingly incomprehensible things,
help another to better understand.
If you wish to heal your own sadness or anger,
seek to heal the sadness or anger of another.”
~ Dalai Lama

“Cultivating care and concern for others
gives rise to a kind of inner strength.
No matter what difficulties or problems you face,
in this wider context
they’ll seem less significant and troubling to you.
The inner strength, self-confidence and courage
you gain by focusing on others’ needs instead of your own,
brings with it a deep, calm sense of satisfaction.”

~ Dalai Lama
