Today I watched a video of a talk given by the Dali Lama on women. What he said in essence is that there is a “lack of human affection” in our world today….and that women are the ones to turn that around. Our naturally compassionate and feeling nature often lead the way in daily interactions.
This is not to say that men don’t have this as well, but we as women are designed for it. After a few funny stories the Dali Lama made a statement that would potentially upset 1,000’s of years of a lineage that is based on very defined practices and beliefs. He said he was open to a female Dali Lama! Needless to say this would be quite a paradigm shift for many, many people…but what if this did happen??
Following on the heels of this I was re-inspired once again by Caroline Casey who gave a TED talk on how extraordinarily far belief can take a person. I won’t spoil the story for you, so you will have to devote 15 minutes to it in order to find out what happens. You won’t be sorry that you did!
I am asking myself right now, “am I pretending to be something that I am not?” or “am I absolutely being truly myself”? Good question to immerse in! Enjoy the video and Caroline’s story…she is one of those innately compassionate (self and other) women and just by being fully herself inspires us all!
