Within that wider angle…

Narrowing_ bridge“The moment you think only of yourself, the focus of your whole mind narrows, and because of this narrow focus uncomfortable things can appear huge and bring you fear, discomfort, and a sense of feeling overwhelmed by misery.

The moment you think of others with a sense of caring, however, your mind widens.

Within that wider angle, your own problems appear to be of no significance, and this makes a big difference.”

— Insight from the Dalai Lama
