It’s Time to Build an Army of Compassion and Here’s How We Do It

parisAfter the recent attacks in Paris, the Dalai Lama said: “Unless we make serious attempts to achieve peace, we will continue to see a replay of the mayhem humanity experienced in the 20th century.” It’s easy to feel helpless when watching the news or thinking about how deeply rooted the suffering is in this situation and in many other situations of conflict around the world today.

    Thank you for writing this, Dr. Goldstein. The idea that everything that we do does matter could not be more true, even though it may be easy to forget about this as we go through our daily routines. I like your ideas, and I think that even though this world may justifiably seem like a horrific place following events like Friday’s attacks in Paris, there are things that we can do (no matter how small) to make it better. And I agree with you that by making every effort to live our lives in a compassionate way, we can have a powerful effect for the better on the lives of those around us.
