In communicating with others, we can definitely make a profound statement. We can communicate with others about their state of being, their own pain, their own pleasure. We don't feel that this world is bad. We feel that this world has basic goodness. We can communicate that. We don't have to run away from this world. We don't have to feel harsh and deprived. We can contribute a lot to the world, and we can raise ourselves up in this world. We should feel so good.
