A Quote by John Makransky on love, compassion, altruism, society, fear, violence, buddhism, and dzogchen

When individuals and groups do not experience being loved -- when whole communities lose hope that anyone cares -- fear and violence are often seized upon as seeming protectors in the form of gangs, mobs, and communal hostility.

A Quote by John Makransky on religion, love, self-help, spiritual growth, buddhism, and dzogchen

Whatever the strategies for a successful life promulgated in self-help books, and no matter how hard someone may thump a holy book to declare a particular belief as the answer to all life's problems, none of these approaches works if the basic motive of genuine love, of actual care for persons, is not present.

A Quote by John Makransky on love, compassion, altruism, buddhism, and dzogchen

We ache at the violence, pain, and hunger in our world, and inside us is a will to help. But 'help' only helps if it is an active expression of love. Otherwise our attempts to help, limited by narrow self-concern, become rigid and too easily discouraged.
