But Chaplin was more than just a clown. His words were thoughtful and genuine and worth listening to. He used the medium of film to speak about important human topics.
Today the world remembers the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, born 140 years ago on October 2, 1869.
It’s no accident that Gandhi’s birthday is celebrated at the same time as the International Day of Non-Violence. Through his non-violent actions Gandhi set an important example for the whole world and will always be remembered as an inspiring and esteemful personality.
Gandhi demonstrated that if we want to create something positive we have to take positive actions. Because he wanted to create peace and freedom for his country, he led others with his peaceful actions.
Gandhi’s birthday reminds us of this timeless wisdom and motivates us to create something positive through esteem.
Last week the Dalai Lama visited Albany, NY sharing his simple message of tolerance, peace and happiness.
With his honest friendliness toward everyone who approaches him he demonstrates esteem in a deep and humble manner.
Dalai Lama is the renowned spiritual guide to devotees and Buddhists all over the world. Despite his notoriety he says about himself: “I consider myself just a human being, one of 6 billion human beings. All 6 billion people are the same family. Everyone wants a happy life.”
It could be said that Dalai Lama personifies esteem. Such an esteemful personality can be an example for us all.
