Thought for the week:
 
It is a common experience when watching the news on the TV or computer screen to feel that all the suffering we see is being transmitted to us, making us suffer ourselves……
The damage is not done by the news of suffering.  The real damage is done by our own hardening of heart to that suffering.  We harm ourselves when we close ourselves off from others. This makes it especially important that we actively work to keep our mind and heart open, for our own sake and for the benefit of others.
 
from “Interconnected: Embracing Life in Our Global Society” by the 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje   
Yours in the Dharma,
Mary Ann Duncan
