The Dalai Lama, responsibility and us

To cleanse the palate from my previous post, here’s the Dalai Lama:

I believe that to meet the challenges of our times, human beings will have to develop a greater sense of universal responsibility. Each of us must learn to work not just for one self, one’s own family or one’s nation, but for the benefit of all humankind. Universal responsibility is the key to human survival. It is the best foundation for world peace.

This sense of responsibility is one reason why I’m on a quest to know goodness. I shamelessly want to be part of the conversation/solution to humankind’s failure of empathy, understanding, compassion and action.

The quote was posted on the Dali Lama’s Facebook page this morning.
