Sitting still, in silence is the opportunity not to reject the other, but to become one with him or her. .
When we accept all that opposes us and we become one with it, we cannot but be anything other than ourselves, because at that point we become the fullness of the universe itself.
To be at one with everything – in wholeness, that is not one, only – is to feel the pain of others as our own pain and the joy of others as our own true joy.
