Some smiles are sarcastic. Some smiles are artificial-diplomatic smiles. These smiles do not produce satisfaction, but rather fear or suspicion. But a genuine smile gives us hope, freshness. If we want a genuine smile, then first we must produce the basis for the smile to come.

His Holiness The Dalai Lama in The Path to Tranquility by His Holiness The Dalai Lama, Renuka Singh


To Practice This Thought:
In a mirror, look at your smile. Keep smiling until you feel that it comes from a place of inner peace.
