The self-cherishing attitude makes us very uptight

Screen Shot 2012-07-26 at 8.09.39 AM“The self-cherishing attitude makes us very uptight; we think we are extremely important, and our basic desire is for ourselves to be happy and for things to go well for us.

Yet we don’t know how to bring this about.

In fact, acting out of self-cherishing can never make us happy.”

— Insight from the Dalai Lama
