monday moment of zen

"we all seek happiness and shun suffering, but as human beings we are distinguished from others by our intelligence. if we allow it to be controlled by negative emotions like hatred, the consequences are disastrous, but if we use it positively, we can not only recognize our predicament but also train our minds and ways of thinking, which enables us to transform ourselves into better, happier people."
~h.h. the dalai lama

It really comes down to the power of choice, doesn't it? We can make choices towards becoming positive and good people, or we can choose not to.

As always, you choose the most thought-filled quotes, Melita!!
