Meeting HH The Dalai Lama

by Trace on December 20, 2009

Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive.
The Dalai Lama

I woke at 3.15am on Thursday 10th December to pick my dear friend Kate Brighton up at 5.30am and we headed to our job for the day as Volunteers for His Holiness The Dalai Lama Public Talk in Melbourne.

We both helped out in our allocated areas as many hands make light work. It is a dedicated volunteer team that helps His Holiness visits run smoothly.

I had a clear and strong intention to personally hand my book How To Overcome Stress Naturally with foreword by HH The Dalai Lama to His Holiness and personally say Thank you for blessing my very first book and providing the Foreword.

I strongly and clearly trust my intuition. Towards the end of the day there was an opportunity for me to meet His Holiness and indeed personally hand my book to His Holiness and say Thankyou.


This was a truly amazing and humbling experience.

His Holiness has an energy of pure love and joy with a lightness of being.

If we choose with seriousness to live a life of love and compassion for all human beings, then imagine the world we would live in.

Live with Love as the key focal point, not the difference, or what we haven’t got.

Live with Love in our heart.

Love for ourselves. Love for our family. Love for our friends. Love for humanity.

When Love is the predominant virtue, everything is possible.

Love unites. Fear separates.

In these changing economic and social times, it is truly time to change direction, change an attitude, change a perception.

Stress disguises itself in so many ways: frustration, anger, loneliness, anxiety, fear, mood swings, hormonal imbalance, chemical imbalance, nutritional imbalance. The list is endless, and the body is out of balance.

Focus on what you truly want!

Then ask “How can I start taking the steps to do that.”

Talk to your friends and like-minded people.

Trust your Intuition.

That’s how I was able to meet His Holiness personally to hand him my book How To Overcome Stress Naturally and say Thank you.

In fact, it is 3 degrees of separation that my whole journey began 12 months ago, and in that time I have written my very first book How To Overcome Stress Naturally with outstanding coaching from Darren Stephens at Global Publishing Group resulting in His Holiness The Dalai Lama providing the foreword to this book. Then for His Holiness to receive the book from me and take this beautiful photograph, I was with Kate Brighton, my friend and mentor who helped me in those final moments with His Holiness. Truly 3 degrees of separation.

When you are helping others
