Working with Others is Developing Ourselves

Book coverOur task is not purely trying to save ourselves alone—whether you are ninety-nine years old or whether you are ten years old doesn’t make any difference. Our task is to see our situation along with that of our fellow human beings. As we work on ourselves, then we continuously work with others as well. That is the only way of developing ourselves.
