Connecting with others

We have to train our mind to see what’s good in everyone – not ignoring the faults, but not hardening our mind around them either. When we can see the good in others and see their potential, then our attitude towards them and our way of relating to them changes completely. This is a change that has to happen in our mind, not by waiting for others to change themselves. When we see that everyone has goodness and potential, then we can also find a way to communicate and connect with everyone. On that basis, it’s easier to generate love and compassion impartially.
