Stop hurting other people. Do not put money or possessions or substances above people. Why are we so greedy? In our selfishness and self-centeredness, we can easily forget that we are people, and that we exist as we are through the existence of others. We are connected to everyone else, and if we do not live in a way that reflects that, we’re condemning ourselves and others to lives of pain, inequality, misunderstanding.
I can’t imagine feeling a sense of calm unless I am immersed in a daily life that allows me to try and see the world through someone else’s eyes, striving to make a moment better for someone else because we all deserve to feel happy and worthwhile.
