Quote 494 Pema Chodron

"People need to see that if you hurt another person, you hurt yourself, and if you hurt yourself, you're hurting another person. And then to begin to see that we are not in this alone. We are in this together. For me, that's where the true morality comes from."
...Pema Chödrön

  1. I love Pema Chödrön, and this quote. It reminds me of a Zen saying I came upon in my web or book wanderings several years ago...

    "Because we enslave other beings,
    we are enslaved.
    Because we inflict pain on other beings,
    we are in pain.
    Because we drive them to madness
    we are carving the path to insanity.
    For they are not they,
    they are us."
