Unless we practice loving feelings toward everyone we meet, day in, day out, we're missing out on the most joyous part of life. If we can actually open our hearts, there's no difficulty in being happy.

-Ayya Khema in Be an Island

The title of the book Be an Island is not meant to imply that we're not connected. Rather it urges us not to depend on the behavior or approval of others for our sense of well being.
