The blog above is about optimistic philosophy and a way of being that reflects optimism.
However, the Dalai Lama says it quite plainly, “I say to people that I’m not an optimist because that, in a sense, is something that depends on feelings more than actual reality. We feel optimistic, or we feel pessimistic.
I believe what the Dalai Lama is saying above. But I love philosophy and life. The rationalist in me is learning to learn and learning to live. Perhaps, I have room for a little more feelings like optimism and pessimism.
