Been in a bit of a funky mood the past week. Things that I've read on-line, things that I've witnessed in my every day life. We seem to live in a time where common courtesy and respect are not in vogue. I find that very sad. It makes me wonder what's wrong with this world and where are we going? I could wallow in that question and be in a funk for weeks. Or I could focus on the positive things I read on-line and witness in my everyday life, set a healthy example by being thoughtful and kind... and hope that it's catching. I'm striving for option two.
"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." ~~ the Dalai Lama
