A Quote by Dalai Lama on compassion, purpose, responsibility, love, peace, religion, human, survival, and stability

        what is my purpose in life, what is my responsibility?
        whether I like it or not, I am on this planet
        and it is far better to do something for humanity.

        so you see that compassion is the seed or basis.

       If we take care to foster compassion,
       we will see that it brings the other good human qualities.

       the topic of compassion is not at all religious business;
       it is very important to know that it is human business
       that it is a question of human survival
       that is not a question of human luxury....

       It is clear that even without religion we can manage.

       However, without these basic human qualities we cannot survive.
       It is a question of our own peace and mental stability.

A Quote by Albert Low on buddha, buddhism, human, diagnosis, gospel, separation, and nondualism

The good news is that we are Buddha.
The bad news is that all beings are Buddha.
The sickness of being human is the sickness of wanting to be unique.

A Quote by Andrew Cohen on evolution, development, spirituality, habits, structure, process, and human

The Process Is You

Evolutionary philosophy and evolutionary spirituality are based upon the recognition that we are part of a miraculous process that has existed and been developing for billions of years. It reveals to us that our own personal experience of that process in all its many dimensions—inner and outer, gross and subtle—is only a very small part of an infinite unfolding. Thoughts and feelings that arise in individual consciousness reflect emotional and psychological structures, or habits, that have slowly developed over tens of thousands of years.

Some people, when they hear the word process, interpret it as meaning something inhuman. But it's actually quite the opposite. I'm not referring to a process in a flat, mechanical, materialistic sense. This process is alive. And it's you. The process is you. Indeed, what is so important about this shift of perspective is that you begin to see your own sense of self as part of a vast unfolding stream of development. Your understanding of what it means to be human expands almost infinitely, because you start to see your own humanity and your own potential for greater humanity as a result of this process, and an inherent part of this process—and as far as we know, the highest expression of this process. In this way, evolutionary spirituality enhances and enlarges to almost infinite proportions your sense of the significance of what it means to be human.
