Thich Nhat Hanh - Interrelationship

Interrelationship

by Thich Nhat Hanh


Original Language English

You are me, and I am you.
Isn't it obvious that we "inter-are"?
You cultivate the flower in yourself,
so that I will be beautiful.
I transform the garbage in myself,
so that you will not have to suffer.

I support you;
you support me.
I am in this world to offer you peace;
you are in this world to bring me joy.


-- from Call Me by My True Names:
