Dalai Lama Quote

by Marie on July 5, 2009

“Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.

Follow the three R’s:
- Respect for self.
- Respect for others.
- Responsibility for all your actions.”

—14th Dalai Lama of Tibet

via On Her Way


My Note: I can’t stress enough how important the “three R’s” are reaching a successful outcome in your divorce. However, it is sometimes difficult to follow the rules during times of stress. When you find it difficult to follow the “three R’s” you might consider yoga, meditation or, if need be, a counselor. The rewards of following these rules will certainly be worth the effort.

I’m a huge Dalai Lama fan, so thanks for the quote :) I also could not agree more about the importance of mutual respect during the divorce process. As an attorney for over 10 years, I’ve seen the horrible consequences divorces can have on people. When a couple chooses to go through an uncontested divorce, or a divorce mediation, however, things are drastically different. It’s all about putting emotions aside and doing what will be in your best interest, the best interest of your spouse, and if children are involved, the best interest of your children above all else. Unfortunately sometimes too many people lose sight of these somewhat basic principles.
