Inner peace - 3

The Dalai Lama said about inner peace:

According to my own experience, the highest level of inner calm comes from the development of love and compassion. The more concerned we are with the happiness of others, the more we increase our own well-being. Friendliness and warmth towards others allow us to relax and help us to dispel any sense of fear or insecurity so we can overcome whatever obstacles we face.

That's my experience too.

I've been through some very bad times in my life.
When I lost a child I thought the future was one black deep hole.
But the moment someone needed me that changed.
I completely forgot about my own grief and I was able to get in touch with the best in me again. Reaching out with love and compassion to the other person made me aware that the most important part of me wasn't changed. I was still able to feel that very important rest, and because of that I could find a way to live on.
