Our Mysterious Connection With Others

Lama Shenpen on our connection to others:

“Our living connection with other beings is mysterious. We cannot find any boundary to our awareness and yet another being is another being to be loved and responded to. They are not just our imagination. So that living connection or boundary between one being and another is deeply mysterious and wonderful. It is the source of all joy and meaning in our life. It is the most tender and sensitive interface between ourselves and the world. It is the place we feel compassion and love both coming to us and going out others. In some ways, it is the essence of our heart.”
