Thought of the week
So we had better think again and use our common sense. If we let our mind mistreat us so that we spend our lives suffering and making others suffer around us, that's a sign of a lack of common sense. The thoughts and words that come from a disturbed state of mind can be considered ‟negative.” Instead of complaining about our fate, if we cultivate altruism and compassion, so that those ‟positive” states of mind improve our well-being and that of others, that shows that we do have common sense.
