 Thich Nhat Hanh, Buddhist teacher says, “When you understand, you cannot help but love.  Practice looking at all living beings with the eyes of compassion.”

Today:  When I find myself disagreeing with someone, I will focus on understanding what they are saying – and why.  I will listen compassionately to them, with a silent thought of love, and tell them what I understand them to be saying.  With empathy, I will say clearly and quietly what I believe to be true.
