I am committed to promoting a sense of the oneness of our human family. Wherever I go I remind people that we are all the same as human beings. The time has come to make an effort to understand that our future depends on others. In our own interest we must be concerned about others and take care of them. This is the wise way to ensure our self-interest.

The sight of violence makes us recoil, but we don’t notice damage to the environment until it’s already happened and there’s little to be done. Climate change is already affecting millions of farmers. We are interdependent as never before and yet we still tend to think in terms of ‘us’ and ‘them’. This Earth Day we need a greater sense of global responsibility based on our belonging to one human family.

We all have the same desire to live happily free from sorrow. But we also face a multitude of problems, most of which are of our own making. Many of them derive from our giving in to our disturbing emotions. Even if we’re self-centred, to be motivated by compassion is good because it leads to self-confidence, less fear and greater trust. Whereas being motivated by disturbing emotions leads to distrust and suspicion
