When I see all the horrors and suffering in the world, I know it can be different. I know the solutions are nested in radiant loving. I’ve asked hundreds of thousands of people at audiences in 70 countries in 28 years if there was anything more important in their lives than loving. No more than 10 have raised their hands.
Around the world I find loneliness to be the worst experience patients (people) can have. I am convinced that depression is never an illness but rather a symptom of loneliness… The way I discover if a person has a friend is if they are free of depression. I define friend as that person who, if you are actively thinking of them, you can’t be depressed.
