“This is my simple religion. There is no need for temple; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.” –The Dalai Lama
Part of the idea this week is to get us in the habit of doing kind things for others, starting with someone we love. The action need not be something extraordinary; in fact, sometimes what may seem like a small act carries the greatest importance to those we love. Just make sure it is a mindful act and is something EXTRA, something you do BECAUSE of this class.
Some ideas: Tell your mom or dad you love them. Help a friend with a chore. Do something loving with a family member you normally don’t do. Give someone close permission to do something they want to do that you don’t normally like (and try to like it).
