We eventually learn that spirituality is not about leaving life's problems behind, but about continually confronting them with honesty and courage. It is about ending our feeling of separation from others by healing our relationships with parents, co-workers,and friends. It is about bringing heightened awareness and compassion to our family life, careers, and community service. --J. Krishnamurti (in Untitled)
A person is a person through other persons; you can't be human in isolation; you are human only in relationships. --Desmond Tutu (in Social Distance: A Community-Style Poem)
Simplicity of living means meeting life face to face. It means confronting life clearly, without unnecessary distractions. It means being direct and honest in relationships of all kinds. It means taking life as it is. --Duane Elgin (in The Spiritual Wisdom of Simplicity)
Think of a tree. When you think of a tree, you tend to think of a distinctly defined object. But when you look at it more closely, you will see that it has no independent existence. When you contemplate it you will find that it dissolves into an extremely subtle net of relationships that stretch across the universe. The rain that falls on its leaves, the wind that sways it, the soil that nourishes and sustains it all the seasons all form part of the tree. As you think about the tree more and more you will discover that everything in the universe helps make the tree what it is; that it cannot be isolated from anything else and at every moment its nature is subtly changing. --Soygal Rinpoche (in Universe Makes The Tree)
