Why not decorate a home with inner peace?

Here are the Dalai Lama quote cards I’ll be using as tiles for Ripples’ homestead, pictured here laid out upon a beautiful Tibetan rug from Himalayan Mountain Shop!

His Holiness the Dalai Lama sure has his share of peaceful, inspirational quotes.  This is no doubt putting the cart before the horse, but today I began organizing my thoughts for a crafty project for Ripples’ eventual earthbag homestead.  These beautiful cards each contain a quote from the Dalai Lama, with different Tibetan Buddhist symbols on the back.  Maybe someday I can learn what each one means!  Fun challenge.  I was considering using these tiles for the bathroom tile, but not the floor.  Probably the wall, or a border, or perhaps glued to the surface of something we refurbish so that I can see them daily and be reminded to stay compassionate and centered throughout my life.

“Change only takes place through action.  Not through prayer or meditation, but through action.” – H. H. the Dalai Lama
