How we love individual trees, but how we forget that our tree is embedded within a community of beings—a forest—without which that individual could not exist. It is only through relationships that a solitary tree is able to survive. So, too, ourselves.
~ Fred Bahnson, from The Church Forests of Ethiopia
Simply let experience take place very freely, so that our open heart is suffused with the tenderness of true compassion.
~Tsokniy Rinpoche II
