“Any time you feel an intimate connection, there is always a quality of compassion, caring, and love that comes with it.”

“Suffering is a result of disconnection.”

“All the various forms of suffering—95 percent of our suffering—at the end of the day are optional. This is caused in large part by our resistance to what is.”

“Awakening itself is a moment of connection. Living your awakening is a moment of connection.”

“The experience of connection is healing. All forms of psychological, emotional, and spiritual healing take place because of connection.”
