Quote For The Weekend (Sunday Late Edition–Oops)

Karma, karma, karma!

Lifted directly from Spiritual Now Dot Com. The Dalai Lama’s 20 ways to get good karma (believe it or not). Compare to Gandhi’s top 10 fundamentals for changing the world. Live well, long and, of course, prosper as you wash dishes, mow the lawn, stuff laundry into the machine, play with your son and his bat cave toy, soothe fevers, feed pets that pee on your bare leg, and generally enjoy domestics (seriously, I savor it all):

Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.

Follow the three R’s: –  Respect for self, –  Respect for others and –  Responsibility for all your actions.

Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.

Don’t let a little dispute injure a great relationship.

When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

Spend some time alone every day.

Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.

Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you’ll be able to enjoy it a second time.

A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.

In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Don’t bring up the past.

Share your knowledge. It is a way to achieve immortality.

Be gentle with the earth.

Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.

Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.

Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion.

If you want to be happy, practice compassion.

    That compassion thing…so important.
    And I think the one about spending time alone every day should be revised for me, to “Consciously spend time with the people you love every day and BE PRESENT IN THE MOMENT YOU BIG JERK.” Ahem. My mind tends to wander when I’m chillin’ with my fam. Space cadet mom.
    I’ve gotta see this bat cave toy. Do you have a photo of it posted somewhere?
