There is a connection between all that exists on the planet. All of the people are dependent on each other, and all the plants and animals depend on them. They are all a part of one organism. There are “energy threads” of love and kindness that allow everybody to live in happiness and joy. If people were to break these threads of love by using hate, hostility, deceitfulness and greed, then they would bring suffering and sorrow upon themselves. By hurting even one person, they can cause destruction and misfortune to many people.
