Discrimination at home

True Home – Thich Nhat Hanh

Who do you discriminate against?

Who do you wish suffering on? Who do you suffer for? What arbitrary characteristic calls for discrimination and suffering?

Individuals with different politics? Other races? Genders? Cultures? Religion? Education levels? Sexuality? Species?

See yourself in others. Then whom can you hurt? What harm can you do?
