(Almost) Wordless Wednesday: Wisdom from The Boss

Wisdom from The Boss.

Reminds me of this one.

Sending up a prayer that when my kids are old enough, I am capable of recognizing and appreciating their type of intelligence, and shepherding them through the education that will benefit them the most.

Wordless Wednesday: Everyone is a genius

I  love this quote.  It is so very true.

Wordish Wednesday: Science and Buddhism

I saw this shared on Facebook (if you know who to credit with creating the image, let me know) but didn’t want to post it here without researching the provenance of the quote and ensuring His Holiness actually said it.

With a little digging, I found the New York Times Op-Ed piece, “Our Faith in Science,” written by His Holiness that contains the quote.  It’s a great piece- as with all that the Dalai Lama has to say, I am struck by his level-headedness and insightfulness.

Another quote from that piece that struck me was:

You see, many people still consider science and religion to be in opposition. While I agree that certain religious concepts conflict with scientific facts and principles, I also feel that people from both worlds can have an intelligent discussion, one that has the power ultimately to generate a deeper understanding of challenges we face together in our interconnected world.– TENZIN GYATSO His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Source

I am spiritual.  I am religious.  I am a scientist.  Unlike many, I am at peace with the apparent conflicts between my faith in God and my scientific training.  I am comfortable in “our interconnected world.”
