We all have the potential to experience an abundant and harmonious mind, no matter how discouraged we may feel about ourselves, and no matter how impossible we think it might be to change our state of mind….This is why Buddhism emphasizes meditation – simple techniques that tame the mind. No matter how wild, uncomfortable, or confused your mind may be, there are  methods of meditation that will tame it, and I would like to share these methods with you.

Greed keeps us focused on what we do not have, and blinds us to all that we already have. 
Greed guarantees that no matter how much we acquire, it will never be enough. 
Building a society or a life based on greed is a recipe for dissatisfaction, plain and simple.

Interdependence is our reality, whether we accept it or not. …  It is love that leads us to embrace our connectedness to others, and to participate willingly in the relations created by our interdependence. Love can melt away our defenses and our painful sense of separation. The warmth of friendship and love makes it easy for us to accept that our happiness is intimately linked to that of others. The more widely we are able to love others, the happier and more content we can feel within the relations of interdependence that are a natural part of our life.
 
Love is possible in all our relationships because all people want happiness. No one wants to suffer. This is true of the people we love. It is also true of those we dislike. We are all absolutely identical in this respect. I think this universal wish for happiness is something we can easily grasp intellectually. When we learn to also feel and respect this in our heart, love naturally flourishes within us.

When we see that we exist as an interdependent arising, in mutual dependence on others, then without a doubt we will feel a sense of responsibility for others…From that awareness, a sense of concern and care will definitely arise, naturally.  We will naturally think of protecting the environment.
