"I think we should have more sexual education. Can you imagine if we didn’t have driver’s ed and people drove cars like they saw in the movies? Porn is adult entertainment, not education."

karmapadevotees:

Returning to the idea of kindness to oneself as an aspect of compassion, one thing about this is that if one attempts to cultivate compassion for others, love for others without having compassion and love for oneself, one will have no basis within oneself for that cultivation. It is a little bit like trying to donate or give money to others when you have no money to give. In order to give, you first have to acquire what it is you wish to give. In the same way, in order to be able to cultivate genuine compassion for others, we must start by cultivating compassion for ourselves.

"I recognize that this wish to create a better society, end all the suffering of all beings everywhere, and protect the entire planet may not seem particularly feasible. But whether or not we accomplish such goals in our lifetime, it is nevertheless deeply meaningful to cultivate such a vast sense of responsibility, and the wholehearted wish to be able to benefit others. This outlook is so wholesome and noble that it is worth developing, regardless of the probability of actually accomplishing such a vast vision."

— H.H. the Seventeenth Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, The Heart Is Noble: Changing the World from the Inside Out (via cosmic-rebirth)

karmapadevotees:

Contentment is a wealth that gives the highest satisfaction, and we can gain it simply by mining our own mental resources, and knowing our own mind. We can cultivate the perspective that what we have is enough. We can see that we do not actually need more than we already have, and can be completely satisfied with that.

We have to stop the race-based violence and discrimination. It’s senseless and awful. We are all brothers and sisters, and we owe it to each other to treat each other as such.
