The Trouble Within

Our world has become smaller and we can easily exchange information with each other. That’s a context in which we can try to develop more compassionate attitudes among our seven billion fellow human beings. One thing we need to understand is that the real source of trouble for us all is not something outside us but something here within. It’s our feelings of suspicion, fear and anger that we really need to subdue.

The Loneliest Thing In The World

People think being alone makes you lonely, but I don’t think that’s true. Being surrounded by the wrong people is the loneliest thing in the world.
