QUOTE

“The myth of separateness is very convincing. Even though it causes us to enormous pain, it’s definitely not easy to take. This myth is addresses very directly by the practice and teachings on the equality of self and other. They expose the agendas and strategies of self-importance, and hang eth way we see one another …

“Imagining ourselves in another person’s situation shakes up our indifference. We begin to realize that in joy and sorrow we are equals. Our suffering and happiness are the same: misery is misery and joy is joy; therefore, whether we feel sorrow or relief, we understand how others feel.”
