Climb Higher

Some days it's hard to stay motivated. A few words of spiritual encouragement can go a long way to remind us why we're doing what we're doing and give us that little push to climb higher on the spiritual path.

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion. - Dalai Lama

Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle,
and the life of the candle will not be shortened.
Happiness never decreases by being shared. - Buddhist saying

Happiness does not come from having much, but from being attached to little. - Master Cheng Yen

To be angry is to let others' mistakes punish yourself.
To forgive others is to be good to yourself. - Master Cheng Yen

Whenever you hear that someone else has been successful, rejoice.
Always practice rejoicing for others - whether your friend or your enemy.
If you cannot practice rejoicing, no matter how long you live, you will not be happy. - Lama Zopa Rinpoche

Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile,
but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy. - Thich Nhat Hanh
