‘You think you are alone, surviving on your own efforts, doing your best in human life, that you have achieved many things against great odds. But you would not even exist without the bonding of your parents and their care for you, and before them their parents, and so on back through the line of your ancestors. You could not have developed or grown without food and water provided by authorities and the natural world, and the perpetual light of the sun. All around you at every moment there are thousands of people working to make your life possible; their kindness is infinite.
To repay all the support and unconditional kindness of the universe, we can live our lives with absolute joy and universal love. Then we will become a shining beacon to guide others in their own joy and love. What a glorious prospect. This is our human mission.’
