The Dalai Lama

The GWG crowns a spiritual super power our highly esteemed Tweeter of the Week!

WHY WE FOLLOW HIM  

The Office of his Holiness shares regular quotes, ideas and musings.... His tweets are inspirational, thought-provoking and soothing when a deadline is overdue, an email has gone missing or an interviewee has cancelled at short notice. Sometimes we just need to hear some positivity when we want to cry because it is STILL raining. 

One sentence is often all we need to get out of a self pitying fog and back to work.

Links to excerts from his recent lectures provide a wonderful lunchtime boost to propel us through an afternoon at the office.

An irritating moment with a family member can be avoided by being reminded that ‘we must work together. Humanity needs more genuine cooperation.’ 

Thanks Dalai Lama!

HIS BEST TWEETS

"Wealth should serve humanity, not vice versa."

"Patience guards us against losing our presence of mind so we can remain undisturbed, even when the situation is really difficult."

"I am often asked whether I am optimistic for the future of humanity. My simple answer is yes."

"If the work is worthwhile, then whether we can complete it or not, it's worth making the attempt. That's why courage is important."

"Taking care of our neighbours’ interests is essentially taking care of our own future."
