Once we recognize all that we have in common with others,
a feeling of compassion naturally arises
and we no longer treat other people with such indifference.

We welcome others warmly and joyfully into our hearts,
for we no longer feel defensive.

We easily see when others relate to us in this way –
their eyes are alive and their faces are radiant.
