Quotes from this Satsang: “Our view needs to be rooted in a deep feeling for all of life, for the well-being of all beings.” • “The wind, the sun, and the water are not elements within the world around us; they are really like our blood and bones.” • “We human beings can only call on our deepest capacities when we have some connection with the interconnectedness of all of life. Things become possible for us that could not be possible before.” • “In the end, it’s all one. To experience it can be exalting, but it can also be humbling: ‘I can’t separate myself from the best; I can’t separate myself from the worst.’” • “You’re still responsible for your actions, whether you choose them or not.”
