We are linked to each other’s.
There’s no me and you. There’s only us.
“When we know ourselves to be connected to all others, acting compassionately is simply the natural thing to do.”
– Rachel Naomi Remen
It’s hard to see that when we do arm to others, we do arm to ourselves.
It’s hard to see that when we give to others, we give to ourselves.
“To live a pure unselfish life, one must count nothing as one’s own in the midst of abundance.”
Start to think as us and your life will change.
Breaking free from hate and anger is the way to true freedom.
“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.”
So many people are getting burned because it’s what they have been told to do. Learning is great, but experiences will always straight things up to what is real.
Many people don’t want to face the reality that their anger and hate will never build anything good.
“Hatred does not cease by hatred, but only by love; this is the eternal rule.”
Love can heal the damage done with hatred and anger. It has to be sincere.
Build a world of love with your actions. Start with your actions and they will influence the world around you. Like a ripple on water, your actions will affect further than just the people that are directly around you.
