I love this man. Maybe I should do something significant so I can get invited to meet with His Holiness. I've heard it's a life changing experience. Simple advice, simply put. There is nothing more I can say.

Daniel Goleman a Dalailama debatujíce o psychologii? A k tomu asi 1000 dalších specialistů. Neuvěřitelně zajímavá kniha.

I had to look past the supernatural references, but overall, the Dalai Lama's message of caring and compassion for our fellow man sits well with this secular humanist.
