Compassion and love are not mere luxuries. As the source both of inner and external peace, they are fundamental to the continued survival of our species.
—The Dalai Lama
I got this in an email today and it is so pertinent as the planet is struggling to survive. Being human is a highly responsible position as we lovingly care for ourselves, our families, all animals and beings, the environment which include plants, water, all things that give us life – all interconnected on this planet. Without love and compassion great clouds of darkness would rise over the horizon with no escape.
