Simple Common Sense ~ Tai Situ Rinpoche

Is it difficult for you to be good to yourself? If you are good to yourself then you are good to everybody. If you do good things to benefit others it is good for you. If you do harmful actions against others it is bad for you. That is a fact. So in order to be good to yourself you have to be good to others, in order to be truthful to yourself you have to be truthful to others, and in order to be kind to yourself you have to be kind to others. You cannot be kind to yourself by being cruel to others and you cannot be honest to yourself by being dishonest to others. So this is very simple common sense.
