This is what The Dalai Lama
has to say for 2005.

1. Take into account that great love and
great achievements involve great risk.

2. When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.

3. Follow the three R’s:
Respect for self,
Respect for other’s
and Responsibility for all your actions.

4. Remember that not getting what you want
is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

5. Learn the rules so you know how to break
them properly.

6. Don’t let a little dispute injure a great relationship.

7. When you realize you’ve made a mistake,
take immediate steps to correct it.

8. Spend some time alone every day.

9. Open arms to change,
but don’t let go of your values.

10. Remember that silence is sometimes
the best answer.

11. Live a good, honorable life.
Then when you get older and think back,
you’ll be able to enjoy it a second time.

12. A loving atmosphere in your home
is the foundation for your life.

13. In disagreements with loved ones,
deal only with the current situation.
Don’t bring up the past.

14. Share your knowledge.
It’s a way to achieve immortality.

15. Be gentle with the earth.

16. Once a year,
go some place you’ve never been before.

17. Remember that the best relationship is one
in which your love for each other exceeds
your need for each other.

18. Judge your success by what you had
to give up in order to get it.

19. Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon.
