Embracing the Whole of Humanity

I once heard the Dalai Lama speak so deeply and personally about his fellow billions of human beings, his warmth and compassion were palpable.


“Wherever I go,” His Holiness remarked, “I smile and consider that, in being human, those I meet are just like me. Thinking of other people in terms of ‘us’ and ‘them’, focusing on how they are not like us, leads to mistrust and isolation. It’s much more helpful to think of how all seven billion human beings are fundamentally the same because we have to live together.”
