My father gave me this book during my formative years... and later, suggested I gift it to a friend who was struggling. A smile bursts forth just thinking of how wonderful my father is, and of the guidance he laid in my path.

⭐⭐⭐⭐

The image above shows how I feel after having read this inspiring book.

The Dalai Lama believes that the purpose of life is to seek happiness. To achieve this you need to do only one thing: train your mind. Because that's what happiness is, a mental state.

If a problem is such that it can be remedied, then there's no need to worry about it. It's more sensible to spend the energy focusing on the solution rather than worrying about the problem. Alternatively, if there's no solution, then there's also no point in being worried about it, because you can't do anything about it anyway. In that case, the sooner you accept this fact, the easier it will be on you.

1) I am a human being. 2) I want to be happy and I don't want to suffer. 3) Other human beings, like myself, also want to be happy and don't want to suffer.

Day two of #BFC28! I‘m on a good streak with my meditation practice (five days in a row already—I started a bit early) and about thirty minutes of reading this morning. My biggest burst of energy is first thing in the morning, so I try to get my meditation done before I go to work rather than waiting until I get home in the evening. I‘m about 60% through The Art of Happiness now, also!

An end result, or a product of patience and tolerance is forgiveness. When you are truly patient and tolerant, then forgiveness comes naturally.

The only factor that can give you refuge or protection from the destructive effects of anger and hatred is your practice of tolerance and patience.

The beginning of being released from suffering is to investigate one of the primary causes: resistance to change.

We also often add to our pain and suffering by being overly sensitive, overreacting to minor things, and sometimes taking things too personally.

One of the important things to realize about this book is that it is not written by the Dalai Lama himself, but by Dr. Howard C. Cutler, a professional psychologist, and is based on his numerous conversations with the Dalai Lama. Dr. Cutler provides the "western", science-based perspective on the Buddhist monk's teachings.
