Buddhist monk and teacher Thich Nhat Hanh makes a clear connection between our love for others and our ability to see how we “inter-are.”
We already have everyone we need to be loving and feel connected. He says, “The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive, you will see it.” We need only to tap into that source of love already present within us, by clearing away the clutter – the fear, the distractions, the anger.
“The source of love is deep in us and we can help others realize a lot of happiness. One word, one action, one thought can reduce another person’s suffering and bring that person joy.”
