Good Monday Morning…the first touch

Elephants greetingLet the first touch be friendly. Let the first touch be kind. Let the first touch be loving. When we extend our hand in greeting let it embrace the world in peace.

Dalai Llama from The Little Book of Wisdom

I always try to create a ground of friendliness with people. Whenever I meet someone new, for example, I feel no need for introductions. The person is obviously another human being…I see a smile, some teeth and eyes, and so on, and I recognize the person as a human being! On that basis, on the emotional level we are the same..with that conviction, I feel that the other person is a human brother and approach him spontaneously. In most cases the other person immediately responds accordingly, and becomes a friend.”
