Bernie Glassman, founder of the Zen Peacemakers:
"Take care of the person next to you. It might be your spouse, your child, your parents, or it might be a stranger. It doesn't have to be big, it doesn't matter who it is and it doesn't matter if they have nothing to give you; you just do it because it is there to be done. Meditation leads us to the experience of oneness. In that state, we automatically take care of everything we see because it is ourselves; it is not separate from us. That is the bottom line for me: Once you take care of the delusion of separateness, then everything else is taken care of."
