Daily Inspiration: Wisdom from the Dalai Lama

Before I get to tonight's daily inspiration, I have a few things to share. Starting tomorrow, I will begin the process of taking my big test. This is a test over everything I have learned over the past year and a half. I have 7 days to study for and take the exam. Therefore, tonight's daily inspiration will be the last blog from me until after my exam, so I can devote my time to studying and preparing to take the exam. If all goes well, you'll hear from me again on Wednesday, March 29. I ask you to wish me luck on my exam and say a few prayers that I do well. Thank you! :-) Now, onto the daily inspiration...

Tonight’s daily inspiration will be brief, but hopefully full of wisdom. I want to share some wise words from His Holiness The Dalai Lama. I have enclosed 4 quotes and one short 3:47 minute video. In the video, His Holiness discusses the importance of having a calm mind, equating it to having a strong immune system. ENJOY AND I’LL SEE YOU ALL NEXT WEEK!

About Tamara Hoerner (1258 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
