Life and Peace

Today I read a wonderful tweet by The Venerable Dalai Lama. I do not recall the exact words but it said something like this:
The strangest thing about modern humans is that they sacrifice  health in pursuit of money, next they spend money on restoring their health, then they get anxious about future and pursue more money thinking they will never die, then they die never having lived.
This is so true dear friends. A wise person realizes that:
The most valuable thing to earn in life is peace. Happiness and good health is impossible without it. Rooting oneself in simplicity, being contented with little, with whatever can be acquired with ease and reasonable effort and good human values; one attains peace. One can not attain peace if ever in pursuit of more and if good human values are sacrificed in that pursuit.

Towards a Wonderful Life

What ever is our condition at this moment is due to our choices, thoughts and actions from our past. Mystics stretch this past not just into this life but previous lives also in order to explain our varying conditions at birth. We cannot change our past but the present and future is in our hands. Our choices, thoughts and actions at the present time shall contribute to the kind of future that is to follow.
All of our choices, thoughts and actions are a result of our personality and it is worth working on it in a way that takes us towards a life that is more wonderful than ever before. When we try to increase love, truth and simplicity in our lives than our personality improves; our thoughts as well as choices improve, taking us towards a wonderful life.
