Nature’s law dictates that, in order to survive, bees must work together. As a result, they instinctively possess a sense of social responsibility. They have no constitution, no law, no police, no religion or moral training, but because of their nature, they labor faithfully together. Occasionally, they may fight, but in general, based on cooperation, the whole colony survives.
We human beings have a constitution, laws and a police force. We have religion, remarkable intelligence and a heart with a great capacity for love. We have many extraordinary qualities, but in actual practice, I think we are lagging behind those small insects. In some respects I feel we are poorer than the bees.
–from The Pocket Dalai Lama
Have you been waiting far too long for someone in your life to finish something he/she owes you, or to make a decision that somehow affects you? If so, it’s time to take the power of that assignment or choice out of the other person’s hands. It’s okay to give your friend or loved one a last chance – but you need to get things moving. Don’t feel bad if you cause some bitter feelings. You have to look out for yourself first in this kind of situation. Meanwhile, move forward with a related project and love you!
