What do you think are the characteristics of a “beautiful place for us all” and how can we realise them?

See Joey’s further guidance following:
“In the last two weeks, we discussed the notions of connecting hearts and pure heart/mind in the song titled Connecting Hearts. We drew references from the Saraniya Sutta, Abhisanda Sutta, Kayagata-sati Sutta and the Prajñāpāramitā Heart Sutra. If you are interested, you may wish to search these suttas/sutra to assist in your deeper contemplation.

In this coming week, we will consolidate our thoughts across the entire set of lyrics and to look at the notion of “a beautiful place”.

Connecting Hearts – lyrics

As the earth goes spinning round
Dancing in the night
There’s a new day and time to make things right
Words and walls which divide us fade into the light
Take a step closer our future can be bright
A show of kindness can change the world to inspire us on our path
Never wavering or giving up our dreams
Believe a pure heart can mend all that is wrong
Walk hand in hand connecting hearts and then together we stand
I dream of a beautiful place for us all
Walk hand in hand connecting hearts and then together we stand


The discussion question for this week will be:
As we consolidate our thoughts across the entire lyrics of the Connecting Hearts song, what do you think are the characteristics of a “beautiful place for us all” and how can we realise them?”
