Before we can help,
we need to understand.
Before we can understand,
we need to listen.
Before we can listen,
we need to be quiet.
One does not arrive at happiness,
one travels its path.
world peace will begin when we end the wars within each of us.
We can influence others for the good
by the good that we are thinking.
Compassion ushers sadness out guides happiness in.
Why seek outside?
Everything we need is already within us.
