If only our eyes saw souls instead of bodies - optical delusions

In our Recommended Reading for March, Beyond Religion, H. H. Dalai Lama invites us to consider that it is in everybody’s interest to do what leads to happiness and to avoid that which leads to suffering. He says that because “our interests are inextricably linked, we are compelled to accept ethics as the indispensable interface between my desire to be happy and yours.”

Our founder, Ernest Holmes, writes, “We know that it is not a natural order of things for people to be at war with one another. We know that the human heart is instinctively kind, that it desires peace, it desires self-expression, it desires liberty, and it desires happiness. If we would promote the idea of peace in the world, we must begin with our own individual consciousness.”

Our task, then, is to begin—in our own consciousness, recognizing our shared humanity and our interconnectedness—to take responsibility for the effects we set in motion in our world.

I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well!
