Sometimes I'm overwhelmed by the hatred and intolerance that I see everywhere.
Then I read things written by the Dalai Lama. His words are always true and always wise - and they always bring me back to my center; my "temple".
My true religion, my simple faith is in love and compassion. There is no need for complicated philosophy, doctrine, or dogma. Our own heart, our own mind, is the temple. The doctrine is compassion. Love for others and respect for their rights and dignity, no matter who or what they are - these are ultimately all we need.
Says it all, doesn't it?
