Necessary Closeness

It is not sufficient merely to see that sentient beings are suffering. You must also develop a sense of closeness with them, a sense that they are dear. With that combination–seeing that people suffer and thinking of them as dear–you can develop compassion.

– Jeffrey Hopkins, “Everyone as a Friend”

May you be free from suffering and the causes of suffering!

All my best,
