You are me…


You are me and I am you. Isn’t it obvious that we inter-are? You cultivate the flower in yourself so that I may be beautiful. I transform the garbage in me so that you will not have to suffer. I support you , you support me. I am in this world to offer you peace: you are in this world to bring me joy.

We are one. To some this is good news- others are repelled. 

We are one- yet the  fear of equality drives wedges between neighbor and friend. 

The  truth remains… we are one. Bound together by a greater source than could ever be matched by fear or power. 

May we find comfort and strength in remembering we are not alone – ever.



Thich Nhit Hanh
