< Back to Question and Answer
Since practicing Zazen I recognize that my love to other humans is growing. I call it love but what it actually is is a strong connection to others. But if brotherly love gets so overwhelmingly strong, how can I distinguish it from my love to a partner? Simply physical attraction cannot be the answer.
August 26, 2014, 6:03 amWhen we practice zazen, our awareness which usually dwells on the surface becomes deeper. For example, when you climb a mountain, your mind gets touched by nature and then when you meet another traveller on the road, you want to greet him naturally. That is how our practice is. The more you practice, the closer you feel not only to other fellow humans, but also to animals and all things. This is the natural opening of mind.
