is the first social unit for developing the qualities
of the heart. A true family grows and moves through
life together, inseparable in the heart. Whether a
biological family or an extended family of people
attracted to each other based on heart resonance and
mutual support, the word "family" implies warmth,
a place where the core feelings of the heart are nurtured.
Family values represent the core values and guidelines
that parents and family members hold in high regard
for the well-being of the family. Sincere family feelings
are core heart feelings. They are the basis for true
family values. While we have differences, we remain
"family" by virtue of our heart connection. Family
provides necessary security and support, and acts
as a buffer against external problems. A family made
up of secure people generates a magnetic power that
can get things done. They are the hope for real security
in a stressful world.

freedom to be at peace in our own skins - that’s what
forgiveness allows. We relinquish this freedom when
we hold onto anger and resentment. Enormous amounts
of energy are wasted when we hold back our love, hold
onto hate, and harbor acrimonious feelings. The only
remedy is letting go, and being willing to forgive.

banishing doubt and trusting your intuitive feelings, you

human being is a part of the whole, called by us,
"Universe," a part limited in time and space. He experiences
himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated
from the rest -- a kind of optical delusion of his
consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for
us, restricting us to our personal desires and to
affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task
must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening
our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures
and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able
to achieve this completely, but the striving for such
achievement is in itself a part of the liberation
and a foundation for inner security -- Albert
faced with world problems – like hunger, overpopulation,
nuclear weapons, the arms trade – you may be among
those who are overwhelmed by a feeling of “Help! What
on earth can I, just one person, do about this?” Take
heart. That’s a sane response. It’s the basis for
a whole new attitude to world problems, where change
at the level of the individual is more and more recognised
as essential to change in huge world systems.

is the quality of your intent? Certain people have a
way of saying things that shake us at the core. Even
when the words do not seem harsh or offensive, the impact
is shattering. What we could be experiencing is the
intent behind the words. When we intend to do good,
we do. When we intend to do harm, it happens. What each
of us must come to realize is that our intent always
comes through. We cannot sugarcoat the feelings in our
heart of hearts. The emotion is the energy that motivates.
We cannot ignore what we really want to create. We should
be honest and do it the way we feel it. What we owe
to ourselves and everyone around is to examine the reasons
of our true intent. My intent will be evident in the
people have a deep feeling of identification, sympathy,
and affection for human beings in general. They feel kinship
and connection, as if all people were members of a single

very important part of morality, being genuinely compassionate
and concerned about the feelings and well being of
other people, especially those that depend on you

feeling your emotions is like feeding them and then
bottling them up. Emotions can grow fatter and fatter
if they aren’t let out in safe ways. If you aren’t
aware of your feelings, you can act them out in harmful
ways. Or you can act them in and become depressed."

"It seems to me of great importance to teach children
respect for life. Towards this end, experiments

To encourage cruelty in the name of science can

the young towards suffering in all living creatures."

are a normal part of life; how we deal with them can make
a big difference. Often when people resolve conflicts, one
person ends up a winner, and one loses out. This may solve
the problem for the moment, but resentment and bad feelings
can cause more problems later. Another way to look at conflicts
is to try to find a WIN-WIN solution, a compromise in which
both sides can benefit. In this way, conflicts are turned
into opportunities to grow and make things better. This
approach is the cornerstone of "conflict resolution" - an
important tool for bringing peace into our personal lives,
our communities and to our world.

is much suffering in the world - physical, material,
mental. The suffering of some can be blamed on the
greed of others. The material and physical suffering
is suffering from hunger, from homelessness, from
all kinds of diseases. But the greatest suffering
is being lonely, feeling unloved, having no one. I
have come more and more to realize that it is being
unwanted that is the worst disease that any human
being can ever experience."
