The 14th Dalai Lama is one of the greatest religious leaders of the second half of the 20th and first part of the 21st centuries. The spiritual leader of the Tibetan people, the Dalai Lama preaches a life of simplicity. He encourages people to be respectful of each other, to live in harmony with our environment and other creatures. We're all in this together, humans, animals, trees, and everything else. We are all interdependent upon each other. The Dalai Lama stresses the importance of relaxing and having fun. We're much more relaxed and we're not fighting ourselves or others when we're enjoying ourselves. He also counsels to envision your goals, what you want to achieve in life and contemplate the circumstances by which these goals will be achieved. Also what you will do, how you will intereact with others once you achieve these goals. By placing yourself in these positions mentally you then become what you want to be to a degree, in your mind. It helps you to envision, feel, and be it, and, therefore, to become it. The Dalai Lama is one of my very favorite people. In the 1980's and 1990's the Dalai Lama visited Santa Barbara several times where I saw him a few times and asked him three questions, which he answered for me, including the above observations about self visualizations. Much of the time he was in Santa Barbara was spent at the Biltmore where he developed a fascination with watching the surfers across the street at Butterfly Beach.
