Great writing about cultivating compassion and positive emotioball state.

Some notes I jotted down:

Seek happiness
Cultivate that which brings joy and decrease stress

When thinking about things that make you anxious, use that opportunity to think about how to deal with the situation.

Use negative experiences to balance yourself and gain perspective. What knowledge can you gain?

Knowledge and education is important to making a change.

Gain perspective. Try to think the best of others and their motives. Try to understand their situations. We're all human first, and can all relate to each other through that lens.

Change occurs gradually, little by little. Learn, contemplate, plan, then take action.

Even Anger can be used to motivate change.

Don't worry
If your intentions are pure
If there is no solution

A really great book. Very common sense advice but it discusses behaviours we tend to overlook. A definite read for those wanting to improve their thought and behaviour patterns.

An incredible book that will change the way you think about life no matter what religion you were raised with or currently practice. A simple but profound handbook for life.
