The Practice of Giving                                                       

Everything is empty, so helping other people is possible. Nothing can hinder you. At that point, your moment-to-moment job becomes clear: every one of your actions is truth, and it completely connects with the suffering of all beings.  “How can I help? ”  “How can I help? ”  This is our human job. This is the truth. This is the complete way, the true way, the big way. Compassionate action is not some idea or action. It is universal substance itself.                            – Zen Master Seung Sahn
