the dalai lama tweets

His Holiness the Dalai Lama just posted a photo of himself video conferencing to his Twitter page.  I'll let that sentence sink in.  And I will leave you with this image, because surely you must be grinning now from ear to ear, as a happy thought for the weekend ahead. 

And a few of my favorite recent tweets from HHDL:
Happiness does not come about only due to external circumstances; it mainly derives from inner attitudes.

If you make your best effort to be kinder, nurture compassion, make the world a better place, then you can say 'At least I've done my best’.

The greater the level of calmness of our mind, the greater our peace of mind, the greater our ability to enjoy a happy and joyful life.

Next week I'll share with you a homemade, edible gift idea that I just couldn't bear to think about during this week without dairy and added sugar.  Happy Friday!

ps- Also on Twitter:  President Obama, the British Monarchy, Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan, and me :)
