I believe that Jesus, Buddha, Gandhi, the Dalai Lama, Mohammed, and all the other great spiritual masters throughout time were the greatest teachers of empathy. Empathy is the key to unconditional love. Henry David Thoreau said, “Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other’s eyes for an instant?” To do so is to touch their soul. And when you develop your powers of empathy, you’d be surprised at how much the world opens up to you. You realize our souls are here playing a role in this great stage play called life and we’re all connected. When people can be empathic, humanity prevails.
