Seeing Through the Veils of Our Stories and Dramas

Seeing Through the Veils of Our Stories and Dramas

More than any other human need, perhaps even more than food and shelter, we human beings, born of other human beings, nurtured by and connected to them, need to touch one another.    We need to stay in contact and acknowledge our interdependence and love in order to live in a sacred way.  Think about your own life, the times that you have deeply touched another persona and what that has meant to you; the times of difficulty when you have allowed another person to touch you, to help you.  It is not with our righteousness or our ideas that we solve the ills of the world but with the power of our kindness and our capacity to be intimate with one another.  By seeing through the veils of our stories and dramas we come to know  one author’s pain and sorrow.
—Jack Kornfield,  Soul Food: Stories to Nourish the Spirit and the Heart
