What does it mean to be human? Does it mean that we were formed from the dirt or that we evolved from apes? Does it mean that we are not prone to be instinctual, but simply intellectuals? Humanity is defined by benevolence. Humanity is our the collective experience on Earth. Humanity is not a singular experience. It is about love and compassion toward others.
“Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.”
― Dalai Lama XIV, The Art of Happiness
