Lions Roar : March 2006
because of wars. Too much violence, too much destruction of life and environment. If we want the twenty-first century to be different, if we want healing and transformation, the real- ization is crucial that we are all one organism, that the well- being of others, the safety of others, is our own safety, our own security. That kind of realization is very crucial. Modern biology has realized that the human being is really a com- munity of billions of cells. No cell is a leader; every cell is col- laborating with every other cell in order to produce the kind gether as an organism and something happening to the other cells is happening to us at the same time. This insight goes per- fectly with science and it goes perfectly with the spirit of Bud- dhism. We should learn how to live as an organism. I have spent much of my time building communities and I have learned a lot from it. In Plum Village we try to live like an organism. No one has a private car, no one has a private bank account, no one has a private telephone-everything belongs to the community. And yet, happiness is possible. Our basic practice Loving one person is an opportunity for you to love ll1any ll10re people. Finally your love will have no lill1it. That is the Buddha's love. of energy that helps the organism to be protected and to grow. Only that kind of awakening, that kind of insight-that our danger, our security, our well- being, and our suffering are not something individual but something common to us all-can prevent the destruction that has arisen from individualism in the twentieth century. This insight of no-self, this insight of togetherness, is very crucial for our survival and for the survival of our planet.

When you are nour- ished by brotherhood, happiness is possible, and that is why we are able to do a lot of things to help other people to suffer less. This can be seen, it can be felt. It's not something you just talk about. It is a practice, it is a training, and every breath and every step that you take aims at realizing that togetherness. It's won- derful to live in a community like that, because the well-being of the other person is also our well-being. By bringing joy and hap- piness to one person, we bring joy and happiness to everyone of us. That is why I think that community-building, sangha-build- ing, is the most important, most noble work that we can do.
