Dalai Lama - How can we teach our children not to be angry?

Dalai Lama. His Holiness is both the temporal and the spiritual leader of the Tibetan people.

( Read Biography of Dalai Lama )

Reading in TIME Magazine of July 5th, 2010 I was struck by Dalai Lama’s response to a question. Thought I share it with you;

Question was: How can we teach our children not to be angry?

Response: Children always look to their parents. Parents should be calm. You can teach children that you face a lot of problems but you must react to those problems with a calm mind and reason.

I have always had this view about the modern education system: WE pay attention to brain development, but the development of warm heartedness we take for granted!

I often feel, while buried in our issue, parents forget that our prime responsibility is towards the development of the next generation human beings! But, living in an era of stiff competition, we forget certain key responsibilities given to us by the nature!

Anger pushes us towards insanity, that’s true! We loose control over our emotions several times a day, don’t we?

British Petroleum - Oil Spill - Seperate Standards for Rich and Poor

On 20th April 2010, a massive oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico at a British Petroleum leased rig threw BP in deep trouble. US Government has launched criminal investigations, share prices fell over 16% and bad media caused massive destruction to BP’s brand image. Until recently, over Sterling 40bn-a third of its value has been wiped off!

US side of the story tells us that the spill is the worst environmental disaster in the US history. The oil has covered more than 70 miles of Louisiana’s coastline. Whereas according to Britons, Americans are furious with BP and the Gulf of Mexico is poorly regulated compared to Norway’s oilfields or the British North Sea.

Some commentators say that such spills are common in poorer parts of the world. Vast areas of Ecuador, Colombia and Peru have been “devastated”. A report in this week’s “The Week” suggests that

If this accident has happened off the coast of Africa or Indonesia, BP would probably have avoided much publicity and escaped starting a clean-up for many months”

Seperate standards…………. for Rich and Poor!

Change Your Thinking Process - Remez Sasson - Mind Your Mind

I read a book "Mind Your Mind" by Remez Sasson.
(Download ebook
Sharing a very interesting portion with my blog readers:

"In order to make changes in our life, we have to make changes in our thinking process.
One single thought is not strong enough to make changes, but if this same thought is repeated often, it gradually gains strength. The great thing about this process is that we do not need to strain or exert ourselves to make it happen. All we have to do is to choose a thought that we want to come true and keep repeating it."
